A Photography Based Proof Why We Most Definitely Did Land On the Moon

I have always been fascinated by space travel. Back in college a friend showed me a documentary that proposed that the moon landing is a hoax. The arguments were based on photography, videography, and lighting tricks and I remember thinking "wow could this really have been staged?" Mr. SG Collins makes a pretty compelling argument claiming that neither NASA nor Stanley Kubrick were actually technologically capable of producing a video that could stand up to modern scrutiny. Collin's photographic argument should put a final nail in the conspiracists' theory for good.

This mostly seems an American party. Back here in Europe you would be hard pressed to fill a room full of people that still believe that hoax. If they ever believed it in the first place.
The preoccupation of the Americans with conspiracies never ceases to amaze me. Saddest part is that the believers don't see that it's a business and most of the people who write about one conspiracy, usually have a whole bunch of books about conspiracies. The make loads of money with it.

When I sit down and watch one of these 'conspiracy' videos, I just can't watch it to the end. I honestly can't understand why somebody over the age of 6 can possibly believe those stories. Just use common sense, will you? Those people shouldn't be allowed to vote, drive motorvehicles or operate heavy equipment...

By "hoax" I assume you mean the conspiracy part and not the moon landing part.

Here in Switzerland, about half of my friends doubt the moon landing.

I call it the "little sisters syndrome" where the lesser group of people make fun of and belittle the major group, and when the major group does something astounding, the minor group doesn't accept it.

How many friends do you have? ;)
Weird. I've never met anybody who doubts the moon landing. I was 4 when it happened, but I still can remember the moonlandings as my parents dragged me out of bed to watch it. It made a big impact on me and I'm a spacenerd ever since.

There once was a tv show in The Netherlands with 'crazy' or 'strange' people (called Showroom) and one of the most memorable episodes featured a hermit who absolutely didn't believed people landed on the moon. '...and you believe that?' he said, with a southern Dutch accent. It was hysterical and lots of people of my age still remember that guy, especially for that remark...

Must be a Swiss thing, hehe.

You must be really f**ked in the head if you still believe the Apollo fairy story, over 20 years after they were proven to be fake

It isn't just an American belief. Believing the moon landing was a hoax is almost universally believed in the Middle East and Asia. Remember, people in those places have no dog in the fight, so if they hear a conspiracy theory about the moon landing (or anything else) they just assume it must be true, because they have no reason to disbelieve it and can't imagine why anyone would make such a thing up if it weren't true. I had friends in college from Korea and Japan who actually asked me why America pretended to go to the moon in the first place. It's a kind of a hard question to answer.

the real question now is... if the US government really went to the moon why they didn't go for another time?
why the soviets didn't go to the moon?! if we assume that they have the same technology  same as the USA?!!!

 The US went to the moon 6 more times. Why didn't Russia go to the moon? Because there rocket ended up being a failure, and the US beat them to the moon so they had no real point to spend more money trying to get there. As the guy said in the video, It was a dick wagging contest. Why hasn't the US gone again in recent times? Well, One there really is no point to go again, Two, they have no way to land on the moon, The now retired space shuttles are not capable to landing on a planet and taking off again. (other then earth) Three, The US debt is $16,438,489,900,253, they just don't have the fucking money.

Actually the US has continued to send less costly robotic explorers to the moon.  And some of you out there in the cyberverse might have noticed that we have robots on and around Mars right now, some of which have exceeded their proposed  life spans tremendously.  Our debt is meaningless to our desire for progress because it is backed by bonds every nation with money demands as a safe place to store their wealth.  If we were to "pay it off" then the world financial system would collapse.  Heck our private sector is planning Mars colonies and asteroid mining right now; our government sector is up to warp drive by now.

The only reason to go back to the moon would be to mine helium 3...... if the moon was filled with gold, it wouldn't pay to haul it back... but helium3, which from what i understand is a very limited resource on earth, would be a viable reason to return......

Very well put!

why does anyone ever points out that US men DID go to the moon thanks to nazi's victims at D.O.R.A. Mittelbau lager? very few just mention wernher von braun, this is the case thou, a NAZI. we should all think about it. i went to that very camp some ten years ago. and it still shakes my bones. 
we shouldn't think wether it has been a hoax or not, but the life costs. not just few chosen and willing us soldiers, but thousands of innocent people died for von braun's cause. 

Not all germans were Nazis mate. MANY german scientists didn't believve in the regime and were being investigated on by the authorities or litteraly arrested.

reffer yourelf to the wikipage on Von Braun, you'll see it was his case.

Don't tarnish peoples memory without cold hard proof.

 Err.. the cold hard proof can be found at Auschwitz.  To say someone was a Nazi but didn't really mean it is ridiculous.
