    No, they haven't. All the stuff you hear about, and those pictures...they are all lies.

    Yeah, there are other things too, like:

    Telescopes are fakes, there are pictures on the other end.
    There are no elephants. They're all actors with costumes.
    New Zealand doesn't exist. It's an illusion.

    Paper is not made of wood, it's made of plastic.
    We are not breathing oxygen, it's all helium.
    Clouds are actually spaceships.
    Bread is made of sawdust.
    Elvis is a cow who lives on moon.
    There is no such metal like titanium, it's fake.
    Pluto is a made of pure plutonium.
    I was hit by a meteor when I was 6.

    And yes, I read that stuff.

    I know for sure that neil armstrong didn't walk on the moon, I can't confirm later attempts though. With the technology available today I can't see why it's not possible.

    That's what I believe. No crappy web page can change that belief.

    First I thought Queatrix made fun, but he really must be crazy to believe a little web page telling "Man never walked on the moon".

    It may be true, whens the last time we sent some one up there? like ~10 years ago.

    And when did the cold war end? 5 years before.

    This is why I keep this link around. Not to fix the minds of the delusional fools -- to prevent anybody else from becoming one.

    The US hasn't sent anyone to the moon in more than 30 years. What are you talking about.

    Or am I missing the point of this thread? Is this where we add our retarded conspiracy theories that are backed up by some random assed website with bad science or some poorly edited video?

    In that case, I'm going to get the whole "the twin towers were actually blown up - watch Loose Change and see!" thing out of the way.

    Russians have been on moon. (several times)
    Americans have been on moon. (several times)

    Queatrix, you want to say all those rockets launched and then secretly landed somewhere and nobody noticed?

    Shallowly dismissing hoax theories is not going to prove them wrong. Many people do wonder about some of the things discussed on that website and many books and documentaries since that day.

    I, for one, prefer to believe that there's some strong points being made by those who don't believe man ever walked on moon. As I spectator watching from the sidelines (aka I wasn't there, what do I know) I prefer to take the stance of listening to both side arguments.

    The problem is that NASA never addressed some of the stronger arguments.

    As such, my answer instead of blind faith, is... I don't know if men have really walked on the moon.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Conspiracy theorists want to say a lot of things. I think a better question is why does he believe a website (yes, I've heard those claims before) and why is he trying to force his opinion on us at a programming forum.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
