    Lacoon NEVER would have said “oh nice horse” because HE was the one who WARNED THE TROJANS that the horse was bad. see Vergil’s Aeneid, Book II. Whoever made this doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    1. Lesli says:

      Get a grip commenters. I found it marvelous that someone would catch that, and funny. I don’t think Shara’s comment was meant to be as offensive as you all are making it out to be.

  2. Dave1974 says:

    Same they hadn’t added a few comments to some. I pictured loads of “FAKE’ comments under the Armstrong pic

    1. Tom1969ca says:

      Yeah, it’s not Armstrong at all – it’s Gene Cernan, the commander of Apollo 17 (and the *last* person to walk on the moon). You can tell by the red stripes on his helmet and upper arms.

  3. JennieBrunflo says:

    ……and the real humor is that Instagram is as true as today……cuase everybody is telling is at is it all the time. Right?

  4. Lee says:

    It’s always interesting to see how much people need to prove just how smart they are. Sometimes you just have to appreciate a joke w/out dissecting it. For the love of Peter!

  5. Kstar says:

    Everyone’s got an issue with the accuracy of some of these posts, trying to prove how smart they are… yet they don’t have an issue with the texting dinosaurs. Obviously, Rexy2Sexy would not have been able to see whatever it was holding, lol.

    1. Linsey says:

      Kstar….oh my god. Hilarious. OBVIOUSLY the texting T-rex wouldn’t be able to see the phone in his hand….aaaahhhahaha thanks for the laugh.

    1. Carey says:

      Agree, this is a glaring mistake. And someone above writes “and one non believer comments “fake” hahahaaaa” which is ridiculous because atheists “non believers” of gods, not SCIENCE.

      1. Heidi says:

        Atheists believe that there is no such thing as a Divine being that created the world. The big bang theory suggests that something or someone must have made the explosion happened. That something caused us to be here, not that we just exist by chance. The big band theory = creationism. Atheists don’t believe in creationism because that implies that God is real.

        1. rnauser says:

          You need to read more about the big bang theory.
          Nothing in the “big bang theory” stats that someone or something made the explosion to happen.
          And it has nothing to do with “creationism” from the begging, creationism took the theory and made it “theirs”.

          I am curious what made you think that the Big Bang Theory implies that there must be a divine being that made the explosion happen. Weird statement and totally false.

          1. BradyC says:

            it doesn’t exactly imply a “divine” creator, but that the universe DID have a beginning, and something DID cause it to begin. Again, doesn’t have to be a divine something. That’s the debate/war we will never solve in this lifetime.

    2. CRAZY says:

      Because Atheists just have to oppose everything that is religious. They believe in the big bang because they have to oppose God’s creation. If God said he controlled the “big bang” then they would say it was fake. Atheists just believe in the religion of science. They have as much faith in it as do God-believing individuals in their beliefs. I believe those who profess to be atheists are really religious people at heart, they just choose to be disbelieving. True atheists are those who have never heard of God, or know nothing of him.

      1. RJS says:

        Religious can be defined as follows:
        relating to or believing in a religion
        http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/religious?q=religious

        Religion can be defined as follows:
        a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance
        http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/religion?q=religion

        Atheist can be defined as follows:
        a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods
        http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/atheist?q=atheist

        Your point is invalid because religion does not require God or gods and atheists are not averse to religion itself, but the belief that a God/gods exist.

        Please do not presume to tell others why a group of people believe what they believe if you are not a member of that group. Also, even if you were an atheist, you would only know why YOU hold your beliefs, not why other atheists hold their beliefs.

    Al Capone wouldn’t have big-faced hundreds, as they weren’t brought into circulation until sometime in the 21st century. failolololol

  7. Ron K. says:

    The guy on the moon shown here is neither Neil Armstrong nor Buzz Aldrin. Instead, his name is Gene Cernan, and he was the commander of Apollo 17 and the last person to stand on the moon. Clearly the person who wrote this article is an idiot.
