Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Because the Russians had every reason to prove it was fake, and they didn't?
Ishkur: If NASA has no problem with faking great achievements, why haven't they done any others? Especially with the CGI at their disposal these days./wait, lemmee guess: The Mars landers are all in Arizona, right?
Yuri Futanari: The moon landings WERE faked, subby. If we had actually sent people to the moon they would have seen evidence that our Tyrant in Chief, Fartbongo, was actually a moonlizard sent to earth to weaken our country for the coming invasion.
Old enough to know better: I admire the guys effort. Personally I tend to lump moon hoaxers, birthers, truthers, etc into the same nutjob category, and laugh and ignore them. Which probably isn't a good idea, but it sure helps keep my blood pressure in check.
encyclopediaplushuman: The guy is very entertaining and funny, I like it. If you ever really needed proof, shoot a laser at the retro-reflectors we left on the Moon.
Jim_Callahan: To be fair, the moon landing was a huge effort, so something like a quarter of us have grandparents or parents that were directly involved (my grandfather was a NASA employee, for instance).
I sound fat: I dont think this was faked, but articles that openly mock people who have looked at the evidence and come to a conclusion different from their own on a contraversial issue as "idots" always raise a red flag with me.
vinniethepoo: I remember that our teachers had TV sets brought into the classrooms so we could watch the moon landing live. My brother was a metallurgist, working at San Dia labs at the time, and was part of the team that analyzed the moon rocks after the mission. He sent me a bunch of 8x10 prints of pictures taken during the mission. Wish I still had those.
Ed Grubermann: I sound fat: I dont think this was faked, but articles that openly mock people who have looked at the evidence and come to a conclusion different from their own on a contraversial issue as "idots" always raise a red flag with me.What's controversial about going to the moon? Nothing. The reason people regard moon hoaxers as idiots is that they are idiots.
I sound fat: I dont think this was faked, but articles that openly mock people who have looked at the evidence and come to a conclusion different from their own on a contraversial issue as "idots" always raise a red flag with me.although, I would characterize six percent of people in america to BE idiots, so maybe. It just always seems like the author of these types of articles is just trying to strengthen his own position by degrading the other side.
Keizer_Ghidorah: People who deny the Moon landing ARE idiots. All you need to do is look up there with a telescope and see the landers and junk we've left there.
Neondistraction: Don't forget about the people that believe the earth is flat.
Lukeonia1: Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Because the Russians had every reason to prove it was fake, and they didn't?But don't you see? That just indicates the sheer depth of the conspiracy! They were so thorough, they even had the Russians playing along with the hoax.
Mister Peejay: I think they were SO thorough in faking the landings that they put a soundstage on the Moon so they could get the effects just right.
Suede head: Or the fact that the Soviet Union was monitoring it too and accepted the American victory in the Space Race.Uh, the Soviets were first in everything but the race to the moon. They won the space race.
the801: there was absolutely no way to fake it at the time. Even the cameras needed to fake it didn't exist back then.challengeaccepted.jpg
