    You have watched too many conspiracy videos and read too many conspiracy articles, mate. Please google "debunking moon landing hoax", although to conspiracy theorists there is no reasoning with because what they believe is like a religion. No facts can drill through their thick skulls.

    I already specified in my question above there. Please don't think that I am asking you because I've watched that conspiracy theory videos. If you do believe in moon landing then I am sure that you would've gone through some solid evidence. Please message me that.

    Yes.

    If so, please explain me how, with some evidence.
    Start here: Rocket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Then here: NASA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Then here: Apollo program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    And then here: Moon landing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Or just read a history book.

    There is tons of evidence. Quite literally tons. Documents, samples, equipment, people. There is absolutely no reason to doubt it.

    If you have some specific question, then I'm sure people could answer it. But asking for evidence of the moon landings is like asking for evidence that India (that distant land that I have only ever heard stories about) exists.

    Any possible question is probably answered here: Clavius Moon Base - debunking the moon hoax

    What?
    There's an excellent analysis here that shows it was all faked.

    I like to keep conversations in the thread.. and of this can offer you some truths.. I was 17 years old in 1969 and television was still a bit of a novelty for me. I had just been relocated to New Zealand from Southern China where my parents ( English ) had been killed. I was very 'news' aware and had been a subscriber to National Geographic for some years.. Before you cast doubt upon what was and is real science and real discovery.. Do not come amongst us casting your doubts.. Do some research for your self..
    I ask you.. to just consider the choices you need to understand.. That the Soviet Union was also wanting to place a man on the moon.. We called it the Space Race.. Do you think they would have sat back and just watched as the americans told lies of what they did or did not do ? and of the hundreds of people in the employment and deployment of those machines that were The Apollo craft could have been so fooled.. That from Australia did come a 'Live' broadcast from the Parks Observatory Radio Dish. Because the Moon was not visible from Hughston at that time.. It WAS a global event I lived through.. Saw, Heard, watched, and read the papers. To entertain the very thought that it did not happen is a absurdity. This place you have come to to ask of this is ' The Science Forum.' where I would expect to find some science.. Not a 'what if' childrens game. Be offended and get annoyed.. and do some research for yourself.... I ( and the genius Duck ) hope to have helped you on your way..

    You need to prove that it was a hoax, not the other way around. You have it all back-to-front.

    As he showed in another thread the OP actually thinks everything on the Ancient Aliens show is real, this is just another example of his lack of critical thinking.

    I love watching Ancient Aliens. I don't believe it, but it's very entertaining. I also like to watch ghost movies, which are also very entertaining.

    I view this as a very telling fact. The Soviets would have easily been able to debunk any such hoax by the Americans. It's an even further ridiculous idea that the Soviets and Americans conspired to fool the rest of the world (seeing as how they were set to bomb each other out of existence).

    Another very telling fact is that, anyone who understands the history of science, would realize that no quantum leaps in technology occurred in other to put people on the Moon and bring them back. This also debunks the alien-technology-put-us-on-the-Moon myth.

    1. The fact that my office allowed us to bring in a television to watch the landing live - and these were people who didn't allow a tea "break", the tealady brought our morning tes to our desks while we kept on working.

    2. More importantly, the space race/moon landing project was run on brute force engineering financed by the brute force of the rivers of money available from the richest country in the world. How sophisticated was the film/video technology of the time? The kind of super clever, super subtle, super non-detectable technology needed to run any fake landing filming was far beyond anyone's capacities at the time. Anyone who takes the idea of faking seriously has clearly not seen many films from the late 60s.

    There is another brilliant spoof of the astronauts being briefed on the fact that the mission is a hoax. But I can't find it ...

    If you do not think that there was a moon landing with all of the evidence there was then I can't help you for you haven't researched this matter yourself at all.

    A government simply doesn't has the competence to pull something like that.

    Funniest thing I've found on here so far. Thank you very much.

    Having watched most of the moon landing expedition live on TV I've no doubt it happened. If I did want to invent a conspiracy theory I'd point to one of the lunar landing modules looking like part of it had been made from shanty town debris. Having seen at the IMAX how the Russians go about venturing into space I also realise it's not all as high-tech as might be imagined.
    Scientists and religionists can be easily differentiated: one lot is arrogant, irascible and disdainful, the other believes in God.
