    Near the beginning of the show, Sam brought up the excellent question, “Why haven’t we gone back to the moon?” and pointed out how strange that is, and pondered its implications.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and risk sounding like a “tinfoil-hat” and suggest a possibility that is actually much more likely than it might first sound: Perhaps we’ve never sent men back to the moon because we never sent any in the first place! Modern media constantly ridicule this notion, and have trained citizens to ridicule each other with “moon hoaxer” as the ultimate put-down, its become synonymous with being an absolute, insane, illogical, batty loon—consequently, few people really stop and consider the possibility that the Apollo missions were faked.

    The manned moon missions only lasted for a short time period (1968 to 1972), and then suddenly stopped. Hmm. Russians were ahead of US in space race, US scientists predicted we couldn’t get there in time of JFK’s proposed time-frame, the US was mired in Vietnam abroad & riots at home, and needed a morale-booster and pro-US propaganda in the Cold War, but we ran into problems like the Van Allen radiation belts which would’ve killed any astronauts passing through it, etc. etc.. Their suits & cooling systems weren’t equipped to deal with vacuuum, radiation, lunar temperatures, micrometeorites. Then there’s the photographic evidence which PROVES that some of the pictures were faked. So if they’re willing to fake pictures, why not just fake the whole mission, then come up with mishaps (Apollo 13, Challenger explosion) as an excuse to slow-down & scale-back the shuttle program & space exploration.

    I’m not saying I believe this for sure because I haven’t studied every aspect of it thoroughly enough yet. But the more I’ve looked into it, the more reason I’ve seen to question it. I think there’s a reason there’s such ridicule & smearing of anyone who questions something like this—-actual evidence & facts are ignored, and ad hominem insults usually take the center-stage; names and insults scare everyone from even CONSIDERING that the NASA manned-moon missions were a Big Lie. There are so many points that people point to and say, “See, this PROVES we went!” that actually fall apart upon examination—-such as the example of laser reflectors on the moon, even though Russia’s Lunokhod 1 and Lunokhod 2 rovers put such reflectors on the moon’s surface without needing a manned mission to actually land! Or the idea that it would take all of NASA to be in on it, when it’s been shown that the ground-based NASA employees wouldn’t have known the difference between a real data feed from a live-mission vs. pre-made, faked data telemetry being fed to them!

    Just something to consider, although I know many people are reluctant to touch this subject. But just play around with the idea for awhile, even if you think it’s silly and highly improbable, just take the mental exercise of considering that maybe men never landed on the moon, and see how much sense it actually makes. Once you see that there are good questions (how did those deep, muddy astronaut footprints form in the sandy moon dust? etc.) Also pay attention to the tactics of the ‘debunkers’, who so often resort to name-calling and insults and red-herrings and distractions, all the while ignoring the points of guys like Bart Sibrel, Ralph Rene, Jarrah White, etc.

    So, they sent fake telemetry to the NASA employees not in on the hoax. That makes sense… but how did they fool the Russians? We were in a space race with them and, of course, thick in the Cold War. Don’t you think the Russians would have loved to catch the bad ol’ Americans in such an epic lie?

    Good point, Michael, and one I don’t really have a clear answer to. Some people say even the Soviets had been lying about some of their space-related achievements, so maybe they weren’t in a position to point out NASA’s lies. It brings to mind a phrase I’ve heard from historian Webster G. Tarpley, who has described the U.S. & U.S.S.R. as two drunks leaning against each other to prop themselves up…. I think the ruling elite of such empires love to make the other team look bad, but they don’t do so by giving the citizens an in-depth explanation of the techniques used to control the masses, because it would have a blow-back effect on them. If the Soviets had said, “Guess what, look what the U.S. is lying about, look at the depths of the Big Lies that governments tell their citizenry!!!” then it would make the U.S. look bad, but would also get people to question the U.S.S.R. and realize that maybe they tell Big Lies, as well.

    Good point. I don’t really know what occurs at those high levels of power, but I do know that those moon-landing photos contain errors and contradictions, and if they were willing to fake some pictures, I don’t think it’s unreasonable for them to have faked the whole thing.
