Embarrassing Conspiracy Theories: Moon Landing Hoax

Ever since 1969 when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon there has been this huge conspiracy theory that neither they, nor anyone else ever went to the Moon.

This belief exists despite the fact that there is plenty of third party evidence that claims that we did indeed land on the Moon, and that none of the 400,000 people who worked on the Apollo project, including the 12 men that actually walked on the Moon itself, have ever said that the Moon landings were faked. This includes Edgar Mitchell, the sixth person to walk on the Moon, who believes the the US government is covering up the existence of aliens. If anybody in the whole group would have admitted that the Moon landings were faked, it would be him.

Oh and lets not forget the over 900 pounds of rocks, dirt, and dust, collected from the Moon, and the huge amount of money we spent getting there. Also, if you have a powerful enough telescope, you can actually see the landing sites.

So why do people still believe we didn't land on the Moon?

Beside the belief that we weren't technologically advance enough back then to get to the Moon, it is believed that the reason we went to the Moon, or in the mind of a conspiracy theorist, that the US government would want people to believe we went to the Moon, was purely for political reasons, and that the reason why we might have faked the Moon landings is that the government didn't want to risk failure of an actual Moon landing and have it being used as a propaganda tool of the Soviet Union.

While it is true that the main reason we went to the Moon was to beat the Soviet Union in the Space Race, it isn't the only reason, otherwise NASA would have probably just landed only one person on the Moon, and not have brought back any rocks or dirt.

Also, why would we fake something like that? If the Soviet Union had found out it was faked, and had proof that it was faked, wouldn't they use it against us as propaganda?

The answer to that is that they would have, and the reason why they never claimed we didn't land on the Moon is because there is no proof that the Moon landings were faked.

Now when you hear this, there can only be one of two conclusions you can make: either it was so well covered up that even the KGB couldn't find any information that the landings were faked, or, we really did go to the Moon.

The fact is, is that there is no proof at all that we didn't go to the Moon, and that there is an overwhelming amount of proof that we did go to the Moon, and that no one is covering anything up at all.
