  • The moon landing was not faked.

    NASA put a lot of money and time into the moon landing and wouldn't fake that. Also, they left a flag on the moon which may be able to be found on the moon now.

    I worked on the first Apache Helicopters, I know what "real" looks like, and that there is the work of some old Heating and Cooling plumber retiaries assembled in a Hollywood Basement. Oh wait, there is old McGregor now, putting the finishing touches, some gold foil he stole off of his wife's Christmas tree!

    Wait, this picture can't be a moon shot photo NASA actually provided for us is it?

    Amen to that.

    Here is my brief cost estimate to build this module:
    60 various sizes of aluminum sheets from the scrap yard = $475
    Rivet gun and rivets = $175
    Steel, aluminum and PVC pipes all various sizes from the scrap yard = $398.99
    Gold and silver wrapping foil and ribbons = $69.95
    20 gallon cooler $19.95
    16 packs of "Adult Diapers" (to make the space suit out of, and to wrap a 20 gallon cooler in for the space backpack) = $328.98
    1 pair fishing boots $32.95
    Welders glove (for the Astronaut look) $19.95
    Lots and lots of duct tape = $200
    1lb. of orange Tang mix = $14.95
    Go and start taping.

  • Guys, there were thousands of people involved in the lunar launch. It is quite unlikely that every single person there kept a secret. Even with death threats, I think word would leak out.

    Under a system of perfectly free commerce, each country naturally devotes its capital and labour to such employments as are most beneficial to each. This pursuit of individual advantage is admirably connected with the universal good of the whole. By stimulating industry, by regarding ingenuity, and by using most efficaciously the peculiar powers bestowed by nature, it distributes labour most effectively and most economically.

    The fallacy fallacy is implying that a claim is invalid because a fallacy was made. I was stating the argument was invalid. Theres a difference between simply pointing out a fallacy, and the fallacy fallacy.

    Pointing out a fallacy is crucial to debating. A fallacy is an error in logic, similar to pointing out an error in mathematics.

    Factually incorrect and intellectually dishonest. I know you're a conspiracy theorist and tend to ignore evidence that contradicts your view but come on.

    Look, the moon landings were not fake. Nobody that was involved in the moon landing said so. And all the technology used in the Apollo 11 rocket changed our technology. You have a phone or a laptop? Great. The moon landing was real. Look. 3,500 media people were at the Kennedy Space center, and the media is the whole cause of these stupid conspiracy theories. Why don't you get a time machine and go back in time to the kennedy space center? You can't? Well then, you can't say the moon landing was fake too.
