    I don't see how the Ruskies will be able to prove it one way or the other. I would like to believe it happened as it was an amazing chapter in my childhood.

    It was clearly a hoax, it's so easy to keep the hundreds, nay thousands, of people involved in it quiet for 45 years. Just like those conspiracists behind 9/11.

    The article hints at what happens to real conspiracies, like FIFA. They get exposed, with evidence, by normal, sane and inquisitive human beings. Not blokes hunched in their bedrooms over a keyboard.

    ...and the quest to find lies bigger than Putin spouts on a daily basis begins.

    I love a good conspiracy theory 9's!

    There has been one or two good documentary's about did the moon landings ever happen.

    I would say if it was a fake then why did the USA do six in total between the 1st one and 1972? Why fake it six times if it was?

    Who knows?

    I did intend to beef the original post up a little bit to make this thread a bit more thought provoking, but had to head off to deal with the real world so couldn't do what I initially intended and probably posted this in haste. I read the article earlier and dismissed it, but while I was preparing dinner this evening I was listening to Clive Bull on LBC. He had an hours show on the subject and I found it quite amazing that the amount of calls he had and the people that gave their reasons for disbelieving that the moon landings ever actually happened. He had a conspiracy theorist on the show who made some good points to the uninitiated ... provoked a degree of thought about the matter. Later on he had a astrophysicist or something on that debunked their theories.

    It was a good listen, and I thought it might make for a good thread but sadly not. It's difficult to admit you've given birth to an ugly baby, but I have no choice here. It's best that we leave this one to crash and burn. In a way I'm glad that none of our excellent posters bit.

    It's a good thread 9's. I do find it amazing still how (or if?) they managed to do this with late 60's technology!

    So do I mate. I've just watched your video. It's quite amazing that they did it back then. It would be incredible to watch them do it now. I wonder if this is still the most watched live TV event in history?

    Would love to believe it was true - I was 4 weeks old and my dad kept me awake to watch it on the TV so that I could always say that I saw it!

    Unfortunately, the sceptic in me feels that the US have been far too clever in manipulating both their own citizens and those around the world with their lies for so long, that it's difficult to believe anything they'be done for the last 60 years.

    Will be interesting to see what evidence Putin comes up with!

    I admit I love a conspiracy... I have read all the books....about the missing tapes. The rocks rolling the wrong way leaving opposite running tracks, the missing times in the tapes, the shadows moving between shots.. I don't think the Russians are going to tell me anything new.....but all these discrepancies are only to do with the first mission....No one has bothered to do a "conspiracy" for the next five.
    So as Stan says....why do it six times.

    Now 9/11 is a different matter.
