The moon is made of cheese, and death.
Well, another snake oil salesman has bit the dust, and after all that pontification and selling of utopias his sky daddy didn't seem to care to have his best salesman stick around. Funny that with religion, in all of human history. The founders die like the laymen and stay dead just like the laymen. Tut was loved and famous and most Egyptian pharaohs were, but all of them died. Jerry Falwell died. Joseph Smith died. Stalin died, as too every pope.
How about this humanity? How about STOP FUCKING WORSHIPING ANYTHING, be it politics or religion. We all die so your title to me is about as amazing as taking a dump. Moon died, not because he was special, he died because he was a human, just like the rest of our evolutionary history. He will be no more remembered after the sun expands and fries the planet than I will be remembered.
When humans in mass begin to realize that there is no magic pill, only our common condition, then and only then can we maximize benefit and minimize harm.
Moon was no one's hero other than the credulous who bought his bullshit utopia. There are only humans, there is no magic pill or magic man. Life is messy enough and complicated enough without superstition fucking our heads to the point of war and division. Moon WAS a cult leader, as with all upstart "religions" in our history. The only difference between a cult and a religion is the political power the numbers have over politics, and that includes politics being a religion itself.
