So far as I can tell, he's not even looking for unreasoned debate.
He isn't interested in a debate full stop. The closest he came to debating on B4N was throwing BS's top 15 at me, and then after I answered, instead of addressing the responses, he first complained that I hadn't referenced any of the answers, which he called cut and paste, and then when I replied by noting that I hadn't cut and paste them and that the information was easily availible to anyone that looked for it, he just moaned about me using symatics because BS was right that the Soviets has a 5:1 lead (right after John Glenn's flight.)
His entire arugment boils down to "If we really went in 1969, then lot of people would have done it since, and as no one has, we can't have done it then either."
Since saying who would have done it, how they would have financed it, and what they would have used to get there is beyond his skill and knowledgr, it all comes down to "But the shuttle is so much more advanced than Apollo and it can't do it, so no-one can have done it ever."
But hey, that's better than his mate Raphael who believes that all symbols and numbers are linked throughout time and space, and thus if someone used a swastika 3,000 years ago, they must be associated with the Nazis in some way or form.

"On two occasions, I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question." -- Charles Babbage (1791-1871)

He reminds me (a lot) of a certain former member of this forum who complained every time I moderated the forum... even when I removed the graphic images from an execution that he had posted. He believed, like garygo, that forums should be uncontrolled anarchy.
