This conspiracy theory has been debunked often enough that I'm not going to do it again.

I like how you tell me to decide who's right, and then point me to a completely one-sided site.

one sided?
The author gives all the arguments of the conspiracy theorists and then gives scientific proof that those arguments are bogus and false.
Were he like the conspiracy theorists he'd just give his own claims without any verifiable evidence for them and attack anyone who dares contradict him in whatever way possible.

It's obvious to the most casual observer that men couldn't have really walked on the moon. I mean, look at the thing. The next time you go outside, look up at the moon. It's like one inch across! No way even one man could fit on it, let alone a lander and a little car. How dumb does NASA think we are?

Ernest,

you're forgetting that when the moon is near the horizon, it's bigger. clearly this means that it grows and shrinks as it moves around the earth. so if the astronauts went to it when it was on the opposite side of the earth, it's probably big enough for one or two guys to stand on it...

What moon? The whole this is a fake! How can you explain a piece of rock just hanging there with out any kind of support, just like that? No way!!

Below that rock there is a slab.It has been supported by square shaped RCC columns.Surfaces of columns are covered with silver wrapper.I was a junior site engineer during that time.

I think this topic is a big insult to all the NASA engineers out there. If they think that this whole damn thing is just a crap then these hoax protesters should have done yakking four decades ago.

How can it be an insult? The guys who pulled off possible the biggest and most extensive hoax of all time? Surely they'd be proud!! ALl those people who would've had to be in on it...

It'd be easier to send a man to the moon than pull off what they did!!!

What moon? I don't understand what you are all talking about. Everyone knows that the only things in the sky are the big grey things that leak water. I know there are some weird people that talk about giant rocks and strange million year old nuclear explosions just hanging in the air above our heads, but that's just crazy. Clearly the rock would fall down, and all the rain in the grey stuff would extinguish the exploding doodahs.

I've heard rumours that people in other countries believe these strange things, but here in England we are more sensible. We know the truth - we've been looking at the sky for millennia and all we've seen is the grey stuff. The silly foreigners must be trying to trick us or something.

Tell me ... if man landed once on the moon (this was way back in 1969)..then why didn't he go back again ? I mean with 35+ years of extended latest scientific technologies in their hands weren't the big shots at NASA curious enough to try it out once again to find something more interesting that the last mission couldn't? ... C'mon !

We all know how engineers are...heck half of us here are engineers...any true engineer has a curious and ego-driven personality...one would want to find the answer for himself especially when he has that kind of power in his hands... wait!!....those guys are engineers...right? ........or better yet be a patriot...try to go to the moon once again...and prove the questioning scoundrels wrong.
