    Hey decibel. :smile:

    Thanks to FZ+, you can find a link to badastronomy.com in the skeptics napster on the main page of this [S&D] forum. I will quote part of the explanation found there. The link to this particular discussion is found at the end of the page.

    Hi decibel!

    Those who say it was staged are idiots without a clue.

    Considering that the Soviets would have been watching the moon landing and would have been the very first to burst any slightest inkling of a hoax, it would have been absolutely impossible to stage the landing. A signal was coming from the moon (or enroute to the moon) the entire duration of the mission. It is impossible (or certainly more difficult than actually going there) to fake that...

    Individual pieces of evidence aside, hoax believers can't grasp the vastness of the conspiracy required to fake the moon landings. It simply isn't possible.

    Absolutely right! It is like all the stupid UFO stories... Isn't it odd that the only group of people who never seem to see UFO's are Astronomers who spend all their time looking up at the skies above!

    Doesn't the badastronomy.com website cover every issue of this?

    At some point in this argument, it becomes clear that actually going to the moon is far easier than faking it well.
