This week’s episode of the SETI radio show "Are We Alone" is up, featuring Seth Shostak and me slapping Moon Hoax believers around a bit. It also has fun bits about Full Moon Madness and other lunar, uh, lunacies. Here’s the direct link to the MP3, and if I haven’t screwed it up here is where you can subscribe to it via iTunes.
I love doing these with Seth. We always have fun. Someday we’ll have to post out outtakes…

personally, i believe the moon hoax. For my own reason many of which are personal. I believe we went there however, we are just not shown.
If you look at this from another point of view. How would you discredit something? well you would have people making fun of it and such. If it had no merit why dedicate an entire page on a website to it. Sadly they don't show evidence to support the moon landing cover ups, since that would be counterproductive of them.
If they where fully transparent about things with the public there would be no conspiracies, no lies, there would only be truth. Thats not the world we live in. National Security and "Top Secret" files get in the way, they spawn the theories.
The moon hoax is a theory, there is a good amount of evidence supporting a cover up and lies.
the provided link is comedy, its very amusing. However it lends nothing to the moon hoax, and at the same time takes nothing away.

According to Dr. James Longuski, Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering at Purdue University, the size and complexity of the alleged conspiracy theory scenarios make their veracity an impossibility. More than 400,000 people worked on the Moon landing project for nearly ten years, and a dozen men who walked on the Moon returned to Earth to recount their experiences. Hundreds of thousands of people (astronauts, scientists, engineers, technicians, and skilled laborers) would have had to keep the secret. Longuski also contends that it would have been significantly easier to actually land on the Moon than to generate such a massive conspiracy to fake such a landing.
