Hi there manmetal,
good to hear from you!
My answer to the reasons for my belief in the original story is that there not a single shred of real info that leads me to doubt that. Instead I have
seen interviews with dozens (hundreds?) of people involved in all possible aspects of the Apollo program. I have learned of countless fascinating
technical challenges that they had to overcome, and how they did it.
I have seen photos and videos from the astronauts and I am still thoroughly amazed by their achievments.
Other´s have seen posts on the internet about photos and countless other little details that are "wrong" because the people behind these claims
have usually no technical experience in the fields they criticize.
That is why for examples shadows in pictures are deemed to be undeniable proof for a fake, by people who have no idea of photography. All of those
"facts" and problems have been explained over the years. All. Of. Them.
How a rational and OBJECTIVE human being can compare BOTH sides of the argument and still choose the hoax is an enigma to me.
Forgive me for not watching the videos of Mr. White. I have seen so many of the like in the past. He surely will not change my mind for the reasons
I have learned one thing the hard way. It is very easy to produce serious doubt about almost anything you want.
There is a real difference between saving the hoax from being impossible (the rocks COULD have been gotten in another way, there COULD have been
unmanned missions, etc) and proving that the original story cannot be true.
And again, so far every single piece of supposed evidence by the hoaxers has already been explained.
If there are people on this planet still believing in a hoax, then I would say it is more the internets fault which connects all the whackos who then
reinforce themselves in their beliefs.
Sorryif I do sound a little harsh here, but that is how I see it. MY original intent with this thread was to see how hoaxers "think" their way out
of the samples. I do know that now. They were collected by numerous secret mission and / or are fake anyway.
