For those asking me on the previous page(s)...
I'm not saying that Humans, or the U.S. during the 60's/70's in particular, haven't been to the Moon. I am simply implying that the materials
the entire world has been presented and shown "live" are fake. Not the launch, landing and whatnot, but the footage
Now you're probably going to say "Oh and why would they do that?!".
a) They went to the Moon, already knowing what is up there, for an entirely different purpose/reason than what the world has been told. The "space
race" could've been just effective PR to get people's attention and make them focus on something else while the true reason behind the mission(s)
remained secret. They may have been searching for ancient artifacts or minerals.
b) They went to the Moon, totally uninformed, and encountered something that would make the public go crazy. Something the people weren't ready for.
Aliens, artifacts, buildings, spaceships, etc. Simply stuff that shouldn't be there in the first place.
In either case it would be necessary
to fake the footage and film it before or after the actual missions somewhere on Earth.
Now you're probably going to say "Oh and how would they do that?!"
There are dozens of places on our planet that look unearthly and could be used. NASA and other space agencies have sites for this particular purpose -
to train astronauts and test vehicles before actually sending them to space. It wouldn't be, and most certainly wasn't, too hard to find an ideal spot
not too far.
Plus, if the reason behind faking the footage was national security and to keep the truth from the public, money wouldn't have been an issue. It
would've been something they'd need to do at all cost.
Given that they'd have unlimited funds, they could easily build anything to make it as perfect as possible. Perhaps with the help of Hollywood.
Something that would look so convincing that even those who faked it wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Something that could endure for years to
come. Home computers were non-existent at the time and arrived only 20 to 30 years later. And even those were primitive compared to what the
government had back then and what the public has now. Just in the last few years mainstream users are starting to have the same possibilities
(editing, sharing and creating quality content) that Hollywood and the government had for years. People couldn't edit photos on their home computers
twenty years ago. Not in the way you can today, anyway. And even if they did, with whom would they share them when the internet barely started taking
And another thing to consider... Nobody questioned the government and authorities back then. Not in that amount and that way. The idea of own
governments lying? Today the news is full of it, but at the time? I doubt the average Joe thought about it. I think people had different issues to
worry about. Sure, you had spies. But did you have an Alex Jones? I don't think so. Average people were loyal and some of them are even today, simply
because they can't fathom the reality around them.
As for the thing being "live"... That's the easiest thing to do and it is done even today. Simply record something and air it later - either with a
"live" bug or with a "live voice-over". Most people can't, and back then wouldn't be able to, tell a difference. As for CGI backgrounds that are used
all the time, 99% won't notice unless you tell them. Sad, but true. Just because something is "live", doesn't mean it always is actually "live". And
even if it is live, there always is a slight delay for safety reasons. But again, 99% think "live" = live.
So to sum it up... I can see them faking the footage and I can see why. It is doable and would make sense. Did they actually do it, though?
Personally... I think so. I think they have been to the Moon, but for some reason decided to fake it.
