AvatarJohn, let me post this little tid bit from an important document
-That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

AvatarJohn, you still seem to have a one sided view on the matters of what our government is doing to us. Death panels, repealing amendments lolzzzzzz.

Really? I'd always thought that possessing an arsenal of weapons was one indicator for believing conspiracy theories.

Pompousass7, you missed the entire point of the video. The point is, people are so obsessed with nonsense (faking the moon landing, engineering 9/11, intentionally blowing up levees), that they're blind to the evil our government is ACTUALLY doing ($1.5 trillion deficits, setting up death panels to kill old people, shutting down the coal and oil industries, selling guns to Middle East terrorists and Mexican drug lords, repealing the 2nd, 9th and 10th Amendments, among others, intentionally destroying our economy to get record numbers of people dependent on government and protecting a Secretary of State who is guilty of negligent homicide at best and intentional, pre-meditated murder of a United States Ambassador at worst).

Get it?

it is funny..the same americans that slam the "landing was fake" people saying that you are stupid to think the government would fake it or attack the twin towers or any other conspiracy like that are the same ones that have to have 3 assault rifles, 5 normal rifles and 6 handguns..just in case the government tries to get me one day

FartCommandr - you fooled nobody, those were Russian double agents who convinced you to hoax it so that evidence could then be revealed to destroy the credibility of the government but they sold the evidence to the Chinese - why do you think Russians are so rich? duh

we should be proud that we fooled the Russians with a hoax like this. We faked it and their is ZERO evidence that proves it was real. You people in denial get soooo mad to think that we faked it. You people even know we did but you just refuse to admit it. Those recent NASA pics were also horribly photoshopped and a pathetic attempt at keeping the lie alive

Remember 1968 was a bum year for the States - assassinations, riots, a divisive election - and the moon landings really changed the whole national mood. If the Russians could have rained on that parade, they would, and you can bet they had agents in place in NASA and the rest of the government just trying to prove fakery.
Also, am I right in thinking that the real detailed conspiracy theories didn't start till after "Capricorn One"?

If Russia accepted it with the cold war and space race I say it must of happened... No one else stood to gain as much as them by proving it was 'faked' and they didn't with the money and technology they had to examine it all being infinitely better then the conspiracy theorists in basements...

Didnt Google Earth or moon or summat show the flag or owt?


There have been pictures, but there's nothing very clear because to get a clear photo you'd have to do a lunar mission. Photographing small objects on the moon's surface that don't emit light requires a pretty close pass. The photos taken from space show blobs and smears.

It's irrelevant anyway, because conspiracy believers have faith that all evidence is fake. If they think that the thousands of photos and hours of video from the Apollo missions were faked in 1969 and the early 70s, of course they'll think that any modern photos are fake. It would be far easier to fake them today. So what's the point in paying to send a camera close enough to the moon to take photos of the landing site?

why dont we have a moon base there already?


Because we didn't spend the money on it. Also, it would have been pointless and spectacularly dangerous even if we had spent the mind-boggling fortune necessary to make it possible. The technology doesn't exist and if we made it exist all we'd have is a useless base underground on the moon, utterly dependent on frequent resupply ships from the Earth.

Too much money, not enough usefulness.

Did the astronauts turn up late and nobody noticed they weren't in the ship? It makes no sense to spend loads of money and run the risk of a massive political scandal in the middle of the cold war by faking it when you could do it for real with the stuff you'd already built and the lunar mission you'd have to pay for anyway (because many people were tracking the ship and the signal source and the reflector array, so they had to do a lunar mission).

The conspiracy "theory" makes no damn sense at all.

What he's saying is true: Faking the Moon Landings would be just as difficult as doing them for real.


That's not what he's saying.

Faking them *now* would be possible and less difficult than doing them for real. With a big enough budget, enough time and enough talent you could CGI it.

Faking them in 1969 and the early 70s wasn't possible. It's not just that it was as difficult as doing them for real. It's not even that it would have been more difficult. It would have been impossible. For example, you can't fake unpowered objects moving in low g and a powered object (such as a person) moving in the same shot without today's cutting edge CGI.

You'd have to fake those huge, expensive rockets! Might as well just build real ones...


And that's another approach - why spend all the money to build all the stuff and send it to the moon and then spend loads more faking it?

Lords Of The Starship A SciFi novel which explores this idea.

5:00 Herring Break! Om nom nom nom...

11:00 Nicely said!
12:00 Very good!
There's TONS of real "conspiracies" all over the place, no need to make up stupid ones (unless it's to distract the public, which, again, is a real conspiracy that happens all the time...)

They didn't "waste" 2 billion... it was well spent.

P.S. Cambodia totally had it coming to them!
