Apollo Moon Landing Fakery CRUSHED!


I am celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 by hopefully once and for all time crushing the conspiracy theorist proposition that it was faked, that we have never stepped foot on the Moon. There have been many posts and even TV shows (Mythbusters is one) that have listed all the reasons (radar tracking by enemies, laser reflectors, etc etc) that the landings were real yet still this rampant skepticism exists relatively unabated.

Recently nVidia did an incredible modeling job that proves that ALL of the photo and video evidence including invisible stars, odd shadows, light sources, etc etc are all as they really should have been. There are excellent videos of this on YouTube and elsewhere that are definitely worth scrutinizing. My hat is off to nVidia for an amazing job and also for highlighting exactly why it is so natural for doubters to doubt, which is beautifully explained below. It's all about Time and Perspective and anachronism.

Check out this superb video by a man who has been a film producer for over 30 years and who was alive, like me, in 1969 and witnessed the landing live on TV. He delves into what was actually possible in 1969 and it wasn't video fakery, as anyone who cares to look will see.

Join in the celebration! Get a reality check on what actually IS conspiracy and what simply could not have been. Conspiracies and lies do exist but the Apollo Moon Landing is most definitely not one of them. Please see for yourself and gain some accuracy on what is real and what is not.

Next you'll be telling us no one was on the grassy knoll...

The idea that any conspiracy theory will ever be "crushed" is nearly as ludicrous as most of the theories. If we weren't there we can't "prove" what did or did not happen. We can only say what we "believe". Having grown up in that era and having watched the landing I "believe" it happened but would never bother trying to prove it to the ignorant that prefer to "believe" otherwise. Similarly I would never try to "prove" bigfoot doesn't exist though I "believe" he doeesn't.

Now if that had been posted in the Faith and Religion thread, it would have been a wonderful definition of rational faith.

Te He. There is no convincing the faithful on either argument.

Some just live and breath being contrary no matter what.

I'm convinced they got there bunches of times, enorbet.

I find it funny that astronauts have to message NBA players with a offer to educate them. I thought most NBA dudes went to college first?

Go figure.

More and more are doing "one and done" college "careers" -- and a high school player who was going to go to the U of A (Arizona), just decided to go straight to the NBA instead. (sigh)

No it isn't! Everyone knows that the moon is made out of green cheese.

As everyone knows, they got there, found the Decepticons' base and decided it was safer to never go back...

The Great Prophet Stephenson predicted that the Moon will be destructed and lead to a new era of womankind.

Back on topic from a broke down biker with a cast on his leg bored out of his mind today.

Funny how Chinas Jade Rabbit never tried to disprove the moon landing. It would have been feather in Chinas cap. I guess priorities .

enorbet, no reason to prove it, let people believe what they want. Energy and time are better spent on other things.

PS: I have an uncle that worked on those rockets and if you ever visit the Kennedy Space Center his "work" is on display there. He retired after 45+ years, met and knew the icons from that great era. One tip, "Never stop looking up", it applies equally to space and baseball.
