Its pretty evident that walking on a surface area with completely different gravity might not be the breeziest of walks

drawman61-in the hope the cool kids will let them join the gang.

If YOU'RE in the gang, it`s a gang of idiots and asswipes.

Kinda like The Orphans in [quote]The Warriors[/quote]: idiots, imbiciles and other such low-class that no self respecting gang would ever consider.

We don`t bother trying to `prove` something that`s so obvious to be axiomatic, yet still too difficult for someone of your [quote]dizzying intellect[/quote] to comprehend.

Secondly, there's the issue of faking the video. There are several parts of it that could not have been faked with any technology known to exist at the time. It`s that straightforward. No CGI at all in those days. CGI wasn`t even a thing. I don`t know if anyone had even thought of the idea. I do know that no hardware capable of CGI indistinguishable from reality (even at relatively low res) existed. No human hardware, anyway.

So it ties in with the last point - the same aliens who ordered the USA to not do a manned lunar mission also created the faked video. Oh, and used their mind-altering technology to erase many people`s memories and implant false ones. That would also be needed to explain why so many people have memories of being directly involved in manned landings.

If anyone can come up with any other internally consistent explanation that would allow for faking to even be *possible*, feel free to show it here.

It can be proven that the USA spent a huge amount of resources developing the capability for manned moon landings.

It can be proven that the USA spent a great deal of resources building the ship and infrastructure necessary for manned moon landings.

These things weren't secret. It`s not even contentious - the USA showed the stuff off.

It can be proven that the USA carried out lunar missions at the relevant times. This was independently verfied by thousands of different people all over the world by directly tracking signals from the ship (and therefore directly tracking its position).

So it is proven that the USA could do manned missions and spent all the resources needed for manned missions...so why would they then take the huge risk and large added expense of faking it? The only internally consistent explanation is that a more powerful force ordered them to do so. That force would have to be aliens.

They fall very, dangily... hmmm

Gravity is much lower on the surface of the moon (about 1/6th). Objects will fall much more slowly and if they have any lateral movement they will tend to rotate around their centre of mass. That happens everywhere, but gravity on Earth is high enough for it to usually be obscured by the speed of the falling.

It's *very* easy to apply conditions on Earth to your interpretation of conditions on the surface of the moon, but it`s very wrong and you will make yourself look silly.

Not as silly as you look when you find yourself claiming that aliens forbade the USA from making moon landings and provided the USA with faked video. If you give any credence to the idea that the landings were faked, you are giving equal credence to those things. I`ll explain why in the next post.

The 3 points you try and make back up my argument. Not sure why you would use these.

Another perfect example.

You have no counter-argument because your position is irrational and contradicts all known evidence and knowledge.

So you make things up. Claiming that my points back up your faith was a clever move - you dismiss my position and bolster your own all in one go.

But it's still bollocks. You`re scrabbling about the pretend that your sily faith-based position makes any sense, but it doesn`t.

If you were to say that it makes no sense but you choose to believe it as an act of faith, then it would be more difficult to argue against you. But when you pretend that it makes sense and has evidence supporting it, you make a fool of yourself.

So...which aliens do you believe forbade the moon landings? You must believe some did, as that`s the only reason the USA could have had to not do it when they could.
