I've just been watching some fo the video footage !..I have come to the conclusion that it would have been cheaper to put them on the moon than go to all that trouble !!

First pics of the landing sites, taken from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, here:

There should be some better pics later as the LRO is still descending to its final orbit.

Yeah but they're all faked.  LOL
I wonder what will be the excuse from the conspiracists this time.

Interesting that the shadows of the 'camps' are different from anything else in the pictures - square edges and longer than the object throwing the shadow. Roll on the closer images.

<full conspiracy theory mode = true>All fake... <full conspiracy theory mode = false>

One in four of the British people don’t believe in the Apollo 11 Moon landing, according to a new survey for E&T. Conspiracy theorists say the pictures were faked in a studio. Here’s their ‘evidence’, and the rebuttals to them, provided by E&T.
From IET.

The Pigeon has crapped!

I still don't see why this conspiracy theory keeps being brought up. Apart from anything else, imagine the total and utter humiliation for NASA if they were found out! And the fact is, they didn't know if the Russians were right behind them, putting them in a position to expose their fraud to the world within days. Could NASA have been so naive as to pull a stunt which could have left them, and the whole of America, open to such worldwide humiliation?

But think about the piles of money that have been made from book and TV sales about the 'conspiracy'. It was, in fact, a conspiracy conspiracy and a very successful one.

Good point, I wonder if NASA started the conspiracy conspiracy to pay for the Apollo programme???

Weapons of mass destruction being just one example of American humiliation.

That's odd, I thought the British were involved too. Besides which, nobody ever believed the WMD story. It was just a fig leaf for GWB's desire to finish what his daddy had started.

WMD just proves that the US CAN'T sustain a conspiracy.  How long was it undiscovered?
It just doesn't compare with the Moon Landing situation. which has been unshaken (in any serious way) for decades.

I have to admit this argument of yours is logical and is a more convincing argument against a hoax than I have read anywhere

I thought we knew there should have been wmds, because we had the receipts?

A lot more truth in that than we might want to admit.

Maybe that remark was a little too Can-Tanker-U.S.

That's odd, I find myself in complete agreement with Andrew here.
Anyway; we know they no longer had the wmd because the UN team looking hadn't found them. The war was rushed in to make sure that they didn't get a chance to complete the search and prove that the stuff had been destroyed years ago. Without the "excuse" of the weapons there was no "justification" for invading and getting all that oil.


Anyway, to get back to somewhere near the topic. The Apollo missions were long enough ago that, by now, we would have had a deathbed confession of the hoax witnessed by a priest. While I think religion is a waste of mankind's efforts I still accept that most priests would have made sure that any dying declaration was heard in the wider world.

Extraordinary Rendition of all ex astraunauts is what we need. One of them is bound to crack and spill the beanz under polite questioning in Turkey or somewhere.

Probaly true. Hurt people enough and they will say anything you want, whether it's true or not.
So, since we know that torture doesn't work, why does anyone bother with it?
