Not to mention 500,000 of the some of the smartest people on the planet being conned by some fancy camera trickery. The Apollo program was a multinational effort, lots of very brainy people from all over the world were involved.
All the hoax believers got is some photographic anomalies, and not much else. This theory has, and is, being pushed by people who are world famous for their twisting of facts, and even outright lies.
And the people who fall for this BS like to think they're in on a big secret.

I am sure some American will tell you about the shoddy construction of Russian flags and the iron clad make of a union threaded "Old Glory".

I am not really telescope savvy or really knowledgeable about the moon or space.... I guess I sound pretty dumb for this question, but I am throwing it out there for an answer. Has anybody ever used a telescope to try and find the flag? Would this put an end to the argument if we have been there or not? I am assuming we didn't land on the dark side of the moon and plant the flag. So that being said why doesn't somebody with a telescope just shut everybody up and find it?
Let's be real for a second--faking the moon landing is the only scenario that possibly makes sense.
Hear me out. Today we're coming to realize that the government is willing to stage/outright fake events like Sandy Hoax... so where did they get the balls to try and pull off something that massive and expect they'd never get caught?
The answer should be pretty clear: it's because 50 years ago they faked the moon landing. that gave them the hubris to keep manufacturing fake news and staged events. Then came the Gulf of Tonkin, and Operation Northwoods, and Operation Gladio, and 9/11, and probably a ton of other corrupt nonsense we haven't ever heard about yet...and they've been manufacturing the same staged Hollywood BS ever since.
Really, you don't just wake up one morning and think to yourself, "well, time to stage a fake school shooting" and expect the american people would buy it... not unless there's been a massive precedent already set in the past.edit on 4-12-2013 by therealguyfawkes because: (no reason given)
So how come a few years back Japan or China I don't remember quite well was able to spot trash we left on the moon?
The technology needed to fake the moonlanding would be much bigger than the technology to put man on the moon. People need to think before saying nonsense. Jara White is a jobless loser that knows less about math than I do about pipe cleaning.

It doesn't boggle my mind that there are no shortage of gullible people out there who can be so easily conned by JW and his clever little works of deception, oh Youtube how thee hath forsaken humanity! I still haven't decided whether the guy is actually some kind of mentally dysfunctional uber-nerd or just an out and out con man, with a voice to lobotomize yourself to. Actually, I don't really think JWs audience are 'gullible' per se, after all the majority of them are MH believers anyway, they watch his videos looking for more ammunition to store in their reality proof bunkers. He's preaching to the converted, and I reckon he knows it, just listen to the guy.
If you don't believe they went to the moon that's fine, you're entitled to your opinions etc, but try not to let your mind get boggled when you're made aware of the fact that the amount of people who're just as smart as you are and who believe they did go there, six times, are many, many more than the HBing crowd, and that's not going to change anytime soon thanks to things like science, physics, logic, rationale, reading, thinking etc.

The only supporting evidence anyone has against the landings is cherry picked nonsense that has been willfully misinterpreted by liars and idiots.

I was wondering about the Apollo 11 moon landing..... Imagine trying to shoot up some module from earth and dock it with an airplane.... it would be pretty hard nowadays.
Back when they supposedly landed on the moon, when it was time to return to the circulating command spacecraft, the module on the moon had one chance to dock...well my question is did it really manage this mission?
To my way of thinking, there possibly was some guys in the module (but not Aldrin and Armstrong) which walked around on the moon and planted a flag, but those poor patsys never managed to dock with the rocket and just zoomed out into space (leaving no evidence). Meanwhile the three guys (Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins) which were really in the rocket circulating all the time ,(while the module was on the moon) managed to get it back to earth and climb out after landing in the sea. Who really knows?
Maybe this is a bit of a confusing question/theory of mine, but it could have worked.
JW neglects to mention that the Lunar orbiter probes and the Mir space station were moving very very fast, making them much more likely to be hit by something. Mir was also grazing the Earth's atmosphere, adding to the alleged wear and tear on the alleged Russian flag (for which we have no evidence other than a drawing).
