In the interest of consolidating responses to the many lies of the US government regarding its false claim that it put a man on the moon, we present a running list of lies and truth about the Moon Landing Hoax.
Philosophically one cannot even claim that man landed on the moon for the very simple reason that there is no tangible evidence for it. It is an utter perversion of science and logic to place the burden of proof upon the moon landing deniers because flying to the moon is an outlier in all of man’s experiences. It had never happened in 6000 years of human history, so why should one believe that it happened in 1969? Where is the proof?
The hoaxers point to video evidence and moon rocks and nothing more, unless you count the hearsay of the US government. There are many alternate explanations to account for what the people saw on July 20, 1969, and none of them requires a man on the moon.
One of the moon hoaxers’ favorite arguments is that it was possible to land on the moon, therefore it happened. But this is the rationalization of a liar using a confidence game to hoodwink the weak minded. Even if it were possible to land a man on the moon in the middle of the 20th century, there is absolutely no requirement that it happened.
We will show later that it was utterly impossible to put a man on the moon 1969 or any time afterward. Therefore the moon landings of 1969-72 were absolute frauds.
As we look at the alleged evidence proving that man landed on the moon, we realize that it is a gauze of threadbare lies.
1. Photographic evidence proves that man did not land on the moon
Strictly speaking, the photographic evidence proves only that the pictures claimed to be on the moon were taken on earth. Just because the pictures were taken on earth does not prove that man did not land on the moon. However, the US government ties its case so tightly to the photographic evidence that the 2 must stand or fall together.
Logistically the pictures are impossible. One researcher discovered that the astronauts of Apollo 11 had to take 1 picture every 15 seconds while on the moon in order to take the number NASA claims that they took.
The quality of the pictures is superb, but that perfection is further evidence that the images were faked. The Hasselblad camera was mounted on the astronaut’s space suit without a view finder. Thus the astronauts, who were not professional photographers, would have had to take magazine quality pictures every 15 seconds without a viewfinder. We find this assertion an absolute joke.
The temperatures on the moon ranged from -250 degrees to 250 degrees Fahrenheit, thus rendering the camera inoperable and subject to destruction from temperature changes. Kodak has stated that the film was commercial grade film which would have been destroyed by the destructive temperatures on the moon.
And if by deus ex machina the film survived the heat and the cold, the massive radiation from the sun would have surely destroyed it. The period 1969-72 witnessed some of the most intense solar radiation on record and would have wrecked any film that the astronauts brought with them.
Even if the film survived the heat, cold, and radiation, there is no way the astronauts could change the film with their gloves which they would surely have had to do outside the spacecraft to take one picture every 15 seconds.
Regarding the pictures themselves, a couple of howlers have been discovered. One moon rock picture allegedly taken on the moon has a very distinct carefully inscribed C on it. Did the man on the moon take up rock carving in his spare time? Another picture shows a Coke bottle on the alleged surface of the moon – surely the pause that refreshes the man on the moon.
One of the most pronounced problems with the moon pictures is that their lighting is all wrong. The moon’s primary source of light is the sun. When the sun lights objects casting shadows, it does so in such a way that all shadows are parallel. But we have numerous examples where the shadows intersect, one of which we saw was at a right angle with another, demonstrating that there were numerous light sources on the film set where the landings were faked.
Many pictures show an astronaut being photographed from above, something not possible with the camera mounted on the chest of another astronaut. Then there is the hysterical picture showing Neil Armstrong climbing down the Lunar Module for the first time. Was the man on the moon also taking that picture?
We have pointed out in a previous article that the images show unmistakably the seams from backdrops and set props, which means that the photographs were taken on earth.
But the lunar follies did not stop at earth. They were carried into space in orbit around our planet. In some Apollo instances the astronauts indeed orbited the earth, from which we see the weightlessness of space. But we also see the photographic fraud they played on us.
The biggest admission of fraud comes from NASA films on Apollo 11 which Bart Sibrel revealed to the world in his fantastic, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon. He received films time stamped with the dates July 18-20, 1969 purporting to be of the astronauts 130,000 miles from the earth. However, the film shows blue earth in one of the windows, meaning that the astronauts lied about their location which never exceeds 200 miles above earth – a far cry from the 240,000 miles they claimed for their moon trip.
The perspective they showed of the earth was not possible from their orbital position, so they were caught filming the “earth” by placing transparencies and cutouts on the windows of their space craft to fake the earth from a distance.
Another evidence of moon landing fakery includes the earth’s absence in the lunar based photos, something impossible to explain given the enormous size of the earth relative to the moon. In addition, there are no stars in the photos. While mooners claim that this is because of the focus of the camera, the real issue is why the astronauts did not attempt to take any stellar photos. The reason of course is that they were never on the moon, and faking the stars would have been improbably difficult.
One of the most significant factors preventing man from going to the moon is the radiation in space. Earth shields us from many sources of radiation through its complex, sophisticated atmosphere. Outer space has no shield and that of the moon is quite flimsy.
The first obstacle to overcome is the Van Allen radiation belt which is essentially 2 belts of intense radiation which would render 1960s space craft inoperable, and would have deleterious impact on humans. The impact is so pronounced that NASA ordered space station crews to bring their spacecraft closer to the moon when they had reached only 400 miles above earth’s surface. This distance was 600 miles away from the start of the first belt.
The reason for concerns about health were raised when the astronauts said that they started seeing flying streaks of light and other visual impairments due to the effects of the radiation. While the Van Allen belt is only 32,000 or so miles at its greatest extent, travel through it would be long enough time to destroy the space craft’s instruments as well as that of the astronauts.
The effects of the Van Allen belts were not discussed during the alleged 1969 moon flight because the science was relatively new – they had only been discovered a couple of decades earlier, and scientists had no idea what the consequences of proximity to them would be. Ignorance is bliss as they say.
The other major source of radiation which the astronauts and their flimsy space crafts and suits could not withstand was the solar flares of the sun, which during 1969-72 were at their most intense on record up to that time. The astronauts would have been fried to crisps if they had been on the moon, to say nothing of the devastation inflicted on their equipment.
Finally, space is filled with micrometeorites whose sizes range from microscopic to golf ball or orange sizes. These flying meteors would pummel both astronaut and space craft alike, yet we saw no activity of the kind in space or on the moon. The Apollo modules would look like Swiss cheese after a journey of 240,000 miles to the moon.
In our next installment we will examine physical anomalies which demonstrate no landings on the moon.
