POLL: Did we land on the moon?
« on: 27/09/2004 20:54:32 »
Not sure if a similar thread has appeared before, but i thought i'd bring up this topic after watching a documentary on it recently detailing all of the reasons why the moon landing(s) may have been been faked.

Many of the reasons (for those who don't know them yet) are given on this webpage:
http://www.ufos-aliens.co.uk/cosmicapollo.html

I used to be a firm believer that Neil Armstrong reached the moon. Now, I'm not so sure...

NOTE: This is now a poll- please indicate whether you believe we landed or not!

Well, sorry for not posting in the previous thread. I assume you guys believe we landed on the moon then?

I think we should turn this into a poll thread then - please indicate whether you believe we landed on the moon or not (with a yey or a nay)

YES - there is no way the US governmnet could be organized enough to pull off a coverup like that. The coverup would definitely be more complicated than actually going to the moon.

I remember seeing a program on fox a couple years ago on this topic, totally farout, but not so as to where its unbelievable.  But the flag waveing in the non existant wind, the starless background in the picture along with the spaceship covering up half the crossshair.

I DO believe it only because i see no TRUE reason to cover it up.

Yes! In fact, there is a secret government base there that is the home to Elvis, Colonel Sanders and the REAL John F. Kennedy.
Now that it is known that I posess this knowledge, please carry on my legacy if the MIB come to get me.

No. I watched a very convincing documentary a week ago.

1 week ago i was a firm believer that we'd landed on the moon, but now, considering the evidence, i am extremely sceptical!

Reasons: waving flag, covered crosshairs, no blast craters, playing moon video at x2 speed shows footage exactly same as on earth in a desert, intense radiation, inconsistencies between still photos and video, shadows in various angles (as if multiple light sources were used) and several other reasons. Also the head of the space program said it was extemely unlikely they'd reach the moon soon and 2 years later someone successfully reaches the moon.

The US goverment had a huge motive - winning the space race during the cold war. Russia beat them to everything in the space race up until that point; first person in space, first satellite, etc.

Dunno- just my view!

OK, so lets get this straight... The US was so incompetent that not only could they not fly to the moon, but they couldn't even fake a photograph that would convince an amateur. But they COULD do an air-tight coverup of the whole program, that employed 100,000 people for 10 years... Yes, on second thought, it must be a fake; and Elvis, JFK, Lee Harvey Oswald, Salamon Rushdie, and the alien from Roswell are all living comfortably at Tranquility Base.

The ruskies have never sent a man to the moon - they tried twice after apollo 11 landed and both attempts were failures.

Explain to me how a thin film of metal (spacesuit) can block so much radiation (from e.g. solar winds)?

It couldn't have been that effective yet how come none of the astronauts have had long term health issues such as cancer?

How come the US were so far behind then suddenly overtook the russians?

How many countries (other than the US) have actually landed on the moon?

Also, do you know to what extent the practice "run through" failed by? The communications did not even work and then it blew up, killing 6 astronauts in the process.

Also dodgy how the person who said nasa had very little chance of succeeding in a moon landing soon (that was said two years before the "moon landing") gets killed (in a hit and run car accident i think).

Explain to me how (even if a supporting rod was used) that the flag waved. Footprints on the moon are supposed to last for thousands of years. If there was such a breeze on the moon, they would certainly not last thousands of years.

Yes.

I made it so Man/Woman could walk on the moon.It's as easy as walking on water. neilep may have been serving pancakes, but I was pouring on the maple syrup.

qpan,

If you need to see a good source of rebuttal information regarding the nonsensical claims that the moon landing was staged/faked, go here:

There's all sorts of fun goodies on this site that involve debunking far-out claims and various other pseudo-sciences. :o)

As I find this quite scientific, and truly impressive in its whole.
I just want to add.

What is NASA?

and, does it exist?

Oh, wait, in 1960, computer graphics was in its infancy.

That is why all of our lunar images look like this.

Keep in mind that Craters of the Moon is actually a place in Idaho, and not in space.

And, apparently Apollo astronauts did visit it as part of their training.
