    There is no evidence or set of evidences that proves that men landed on the moon. I came with this conclusion after reviewing the most cited proofs of alleged moon landings, these are: photos, videos, moon rocks and the laser reflector. At best, we may conclude that we sent unmanned space probes because of the laser reflector, but we can't conclude that men effectively landed on the moon since it can't be proven. Also, as a policy, we may argue there was no precedent or subsequent policy that was as stupendously stupid as sending men on the moon. I am worried that such a stupid policy might have really been carried out just a few years ago.

    If you really don't want to believe it, then nothing's going to prove it to you. There's nothing a human can bring back (like moon rocks, .. etc) that an unmanned probe couldn't conceivably gather. However, unmanned probe tech was pretty bad back then. Just look at the Mars landers that got sent a little bit later on to Mars. They've only got very basic robotics for gathering samples.

    The Moon rock samples that came back have interesting characteristics, like the presence of isotopes like Helium 3, which would be very difficult to forge, so either you've got to believe that Nasa built a very good lander to collect samples and bring them back, .... but then forgot how when it was time to study Mars...... or the landing would have to have been a manned landing.

    Blue Lantern,
    welcome to the forum.

    An education is a wonderful thing. I hope you will stick around the forum long enough to get one and have the maturity to concede what a total prat you were in your first post.

    Here are three separate points:

    Firstly, there aren't really any proofs that man landed on the moon. There don't need to be. We don't need proofs that President Obama just visited India. It happened. We saw it happening on TV. Done deal. It's just the same with the moon landings. We saw the spacecraft and rockets being developed. Tens of thousands across America and across the world helped construct those spacecraft and rockets and equipment. We saw the rockets take off. We saw television broadcasts from the spacecraft as they orbited the moon. Do you concede that they orbited the moon?

    Anyway, I object to your terminology. It is equivalent to you saying to me, "I really must insist that you prove people could see in colour in the 18th century."

    Secondly, the volume of samples returned would not have been practical with a robotic craft available then, or at any time since. And those samples have such a unique geology, that turned our thinking on its head. There was all kind of speculation prior to the landing as to what the mineralogy and chemistry of moon rocks would be. No one anticipated what was actually found. You don't fabricate a geochemistry that is beyond your group imagination.

    Third, you say ", as a policy, we may argue there was no precedent or subsequent policy that was as stupendously stupid as sending men on the moon."

    This was an imminently sensible political policy that achieved its aim. You need to come up with something better than such empty rhetoric.
