I identified two problem areas that plague the Apollo/Moon discussions, conceptual straw man and misnomers.

I've got four words for you guys. Van Allen radiation belts. Nuff said. The whole argument that they can measure the distance and even the latest "images" that suppossedly show the landers, all done remotely with robots. The russians had been doing that for years before we faked our landing

Well if it's not a huge challenge then why don't we go there for $1 billion. That is the same cost of the average shuttle mission, am I right?
Is it even possible to go to the Moon?
The way to answer the question is for some agency to publicly demonstrate that ability. Having scientific papers in hand doesn't automatically translate to a demonstration of an ability.

Oh and the originals were lost or damaged?
We talk about proof; well NASA gave us the proof, a B&W movie and some rocks?
I think you opinions are too tarnished with present day tech. Sure we could probably give it a go. But with 1969 tech. No, no way. They just wouldn't risk it. Live as well
I think they had no choice but to fake it.

What is it about technology in '69 that would prevent anyone from going to the Moon?

1957 to 1969, you need a math lesson.

This video sums up my feelings on this issue. Carl Sagan, a man I consider to be one of the greatest minds of history, read aloud his book Pale Blue Dot: A Vision if the Human Future in Space.
It is a direct sequel to Cosmos- a book that I think should be standard reading for anyone who wants to begin the journey to true enlightenment.
It never ceases to bring tears to my eyes.
This astro-nots heroes of mankind have avoiding interviews for more than 40 years because they haven't yet recovered from the shock of their magic trip.
