    50 years ago we landed on the moon and I for one believe that completely, I believe it because of all the evidence that has been presented and of course if it wasn't true the Russians would have been all over this exposing the evil capitalists as liars and cheats.
    What I find really strange is that even 50 years on we have or seem to have more flat earthers than ever, it's as if people just try to be contrary for the hell of it.

    The con went so well they repeated it 5 more times just to see if they could get away with it.

    The Yanks don’t have the ability to put a man in orbit currently.
    They have to use Russian rockets.

    2 million tons of rocket? Metric tonnes or Imperial tons?

    I think that the further back in time an event occured, the more likely it is that people who weren't around at that time will dispute its authenticity. We tend to be more distrustful of historical events than ones we've lived through. The idea that the US could have created a hoax on such an elaborate scale seems to be presposterous to me. Partly because I can remember the intensity of the focus and scrutiny on the moon landings. But also because the US just wasn't united enough, because of the Vietnam war, to carry off such a stunt without someone giving the game away. It's just about conceivable that the USSR would have had the iron control to keep such a conspiracy quiet, but certainly not the Nixon administration.
