On July 20/21, 1969, two men — Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin — made history by becoming the first two humans to set foot on the Moon. Regardless of the excitement and fervor that accomplishment caused at the time, in the years since there have been plenty of people who have tried to cast doubt over the achievement and they’ve used various arguments to support their claim that it was all a hoax.
I have never found any of these arguments convincing, however some of my friends do, and Mr Adam Ruff, one of those friends wants to make his case that the moon landings were an elaborate hoax. So I dedicate this thread to his efforts.

One of the core issues to be faced here is one of consensus, and if you are a “politically correct Truther’, meaning do you or do you not go along with all of the standard conspiracy theories. The Moon Landing Hoax has become one of these popular theories. Yes I have been chastised for using the term ‘conspiracy theorists’ myself, even though I readily admit that I agree with many conspiracy theories. But I use the term “theory” in its proper scientific sense. Should we fear being labeled ‘Conspiracy Theorist’ just because the mainstream has degraded the term? Not in my view. And it is also my view that not all conspiracy theories are equal. Some make sense and can be proven beyond reasonable doubt. While others are truly absolutely bat shit crazy; Judy Woowoo’s Dew, Nukes at WTC, No Planes, Video Fakery, Hologram Planes, Zapruder Film is Fake… and yes, very likely, the Moon Landing Hoax.
