Was Apollo 11 really a giant leap for mankind? Or was it a giant hoax on mankind?
Fifty years have now passed since the Apollo 11 mission captivated the world. Images showing American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the face of the moon were broadcast to an enormous worldwide television audience. It represented a defining historical moment not just for America but for the boomer generation as a whole. It’s a moment that is still celebrated to this day.
But was it really the profound historical moment that we’ve been told?
There’s a significant number of people on the Internet who believe that Apollo 11 and the other subsequent moon landings were nothing but a gigantic hoax. In fact, a majority of Russians polled believe the moon landings were faked. They aren’t the only ones though. Many people around the world are skeptical and do not believe we ever went to the moon.
In the US, opinion polls indicate that 5-10% of Americans distrust the official version of events. In the UK, a YouGov poll in 2012 found that 12% of Britons believed in the conspiracy theory. A recent survey found that 20% of Italians believe that the Moon landings were a hoax, while a 2018 poll in Russia put the figure there as high as 57%, unsurprising given the popularity of anti-Western conspiracy theories in the country.
It’s worth noting that the authenticity of the moon landings is a very divisive subject among nationalists. A significant number of nationalists believe that we legitimately went to the moon. They believe that theories about hoaxes have been promoted by Jews in order to degrade an achievement made possible by White men. Others are skeptical and believe that the moon landings were faked for the purposes of Cold War propaganda and other extraneous reasons.
Even though many reading this might disagree with my opinion, it is my personal belief that Apollo 11 and the other moon landings were faked. I believe it was partially for Cold War propaganda as well as a way for NASA to justify the enormous amounts of money that was being funneled into their organization.
The most obvious question that comes to mind is why there hasn’t been a single successful moon landing since the early 1970s? If this feat was so easy to accomplish using half a century old technology, why has it not been replicated since? If not by the United States, surely another country would have been able to put a man on the moon. But as it stands now, nobody else has come close. Manned space missions that launched after Apollo haven’t even left the earth’s orbit.
During the 1960s, it was a widely accepted fact that the Soviets had a more advanced space program. They were the first to launch a satellite into space (Sputnik) and they were the first to put a man into space. These technological advancements were viewed as a military threat by the United States which is why all sorts of money was poured into the space program.
But despite all of the resources dedicated to the space program, there were numerous failures that occurred just prior to the allegedly successful moon landings.
Apollo 1 which took place just two years before Apollo 11, blew up on the launch pad.
And just a year before Apollo 11, Neil Armstrong had to eject himself from a training version of the lunar lander module.
It is extremely difficult to believe that NASA went from this level of failure to repeatedly landing men on the moon in such a short period of time. Especially considering that the Soviets had the more advanced space program but were unable to come close to what NASA is said to have accomplished.
Gravity on the moon is said to be 1/6th that of the gravity on earth. This means you would expect astronauts even with the weight of their suits, to be able to leap and jump incredible distances relative to what is possible on earth. Yet when you view the video of the astronauts allegedly walking on the moon, they are not doing these things. Instead, it looks like much of the moonwalk footage was shot here on earth in slow motion with the astronauts suspended on wires.
The moon is also said to be a place that has no atmosphere. This raises the question as to why no stars are visible in any of the Apollo footage. It would be reasonable to assume that the stars would be much more visible in an environment without an atmosphere.
Another question is how the Apollo astronauts flew through the Van Allen Radiation Belts with little if any difficulty. If it was so easy, why hasn’t NASA launched some type of manned mission to do it again?
There’s even a number of clips showing various people from NASA implying or outright saying that it is not currently possible to fly a spacecraft through the Van Allen Radiation Belts. Strange that they would say such things considering we allegedly did it several times many decades ago.
There’s also an endless number of oddities surrounding the Apollo missions.
When the Apollo 11 astronauts returned from their mission, they did a lengthy press conference. Their demeanor throughout the press conference was downright bizarre. For a group of men who were just responsible for an enormous historical and scientific achievement, they instead look subdued almost as if they were attending a funeral. You would think that these men would be happy and thrilled at what they achieved but they instead looked like men who were being held hostage.
A moon rock given to the Dutch Prime Minister by the Apollo 11 astronauts was later determined to not be a moon rock but petrified wood.
Curators at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, where the rock has attracted tens of thousands of visitors each year, discovered that the “lunar rock”, valued at £308,000, was in fact petrified wood.
Xandra van Gelder, who oversaw the investigation, said the museum would continue to keep the stone as a curiosity.
“It’s a good story, with some questions that are still unanswered,” she said. “We can laugh about it.”
The rock was given to Willem Drees, a former Dutch leader, during a global tour by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin following their moon mission 50 years ago.
The original recordings of Apollo 11 were erased allegedly to save money. As if NASA would erase something of such historical significance to save a few dollars. It’s more likely that these recordings were intentionally erased for the purposes of destroying the content.
The original recordings of the first humans landing on the moon 40 years ago were erased and re-used, but newly restored copies of the original broadcast look even better, NASA officials said on Thursday.
NASA released the first glimpses of a complete digital make-over of the original landing footage that clarifies the blurry and grainy images of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the surface of the moon.
The full set of recordings, being cleaned up by Burbank, California-based Lowry Digital, will be released in September. The preview is available at www.nasa.gov.
NASA admitted in 2006 that no one could find the original video recordings of the July 20, 1969, landing.
Since then, Richard Nafzger, an engineer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, who oversaw television processing at the ground-tracking sites during the Apollo 11 mission, has been looking for them.
The good news is he found where they went. The bad news is they were part of a batch of 200,000 tapes that were degaussed — magnetically erased — and re-used to save money.
NASA also released photos supposedly taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter showing what they said were the Apollo moon landing sites.
But the photos like the one NASA released above are of such poor quality that they prove nothing. Quite convenient considering that they were released by NASA in part because they thought that they would help debunk moon landing conspiracy theories.
Recently, Buzz Aldrin was asked by an 8-year-old who asked him why we haven’t gone back to the moon in such a long time. While it is possible that his mind is fading from his old age, he seemed to admit in his response that we never went to begin with.
And back in the 2000s, Aldrin punched Bart Sibrel a man who asked him to swear on the Bible that he walked on the moon.
Sibrel also asked Neil Armstrong to swear on the Bible that he walked on the moon and Armstrong refused accusing him of possessing a fake Bible and that he did not deserve answers to his questions.
These are quite bizarre responses from these men. If they really walked on the moon, it would be easy for them to laugh at Sibrel as some sort of kook. But instead, they responded to him with anger and contempt.
Hollywood has also fictionalized the idea that the moon landings were faked. A popular tactic by Jews has been to fictionalize the truth so the truth seems like fiction.
In the James Bond film “Diamonds are Forever,” there’s a scene where Sean Connery stumbles on to a lunar studio set where they appear to be shooting fake moon landing footage.
And then there’s the 1970s film Capricorn One whose plot focuses around NASA forcing astronauts to fake a mission to Mars. Comically enough, O.J. Simpson plays one of the astronauts in the movie.
The popular theory is that the Apollo moon landings were actually shot by Stanley Kubrick who had just finished his film 2001 : A Space Odyssey a short period of time before. the Apollo missions The film which was released in 1968, featured detailed special effects and visuals of the moon and space travel the likes of which had not been seen to that date. These techniques developed by Kubrick would obviously be valuable if one desired to fake footage of a lunar landing.
It’s easy to see why a significant number of people on the Internet do not believe that the moon landings were real. There’s lots of questions here and I do not believe NASA has provided sufficient answers to those questions.
The problem is that the Apollo moon landings have become such an entrenched part of American history, that it has become difficult for people to openly question their authenticity. Right now, the media is running all sorts of stories celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. They are also running articles claiming that there is something wrong with people who think the moon landings were faked. Politicians across the political spectrum are even celebrating it.
The lunar module from the Apollo 16 mission literally looks like somebody duct taped gold colored aluminum foil to PVC pipes. But yet, it allegedly took men to the moon and back. And NASA wonders why people are skeptical.
But even if you believe that the Apollo moon landings were real, there’s a significant number of people who are not convinced. They have questions and they deserve answers to these questions.
In fact, because of the skepticism that exists, there should be an independent investigation into the operations of NASA. The people deserve to know if this organization has been involved with scamming the public by promoting a hoax of such large proportions. There’s also many other questions surrounding other NASA missions that people on the Internet believe have been faked.
Ultimately though, debating whether or not the Apollo moon landings were real or faked is a far less consequential topic than the problems we have with Jews, third world hordes invading our countries and what not. But once we finish solving these problems, we should to take a real hard look at NASA and give the public some transparency.
It’s just my view that this topic deserves some conversation considering that the fifty year anniversary of this event has been all over the news. An open and honest debate about this subject should be had.
