Apollo 11 Crew: Mooning The Doubters

By Wyatt Earp | July 26, 2009

Moon LandingEarlier this week, NASA celebrated the 40th anniversary of the moon landing. And while this is cause for rejoice amongst the Apollo 11 crew and normal citizens everywhere, there is a small cluster of morons who still think the entire thing was staged.

We call those dopes, “Moon troofers.”

This faux controversy from these faux intellects is the subject of this week’s Family Security Matters article. Here’s a snippet:

This past Monday, America celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins made history by reaching the moon on July 20, 1969. As an added bonus, the Apollo 11 astronauts also stuck it to the borscht-gorging, vodka-swilling Soviets by beating them there – an event that is compared to the 1980 Miracle on Ice, without the fighting and lost teeth.

While most Americans regard the moon landing as the greatest thing since canned bread, there were more than a few people who believe the entire event was staged. After all, it was only six years after the mother of all conspiracy theories occurred – the assassination of President John F. Kennedy – and future Ron Paul supporters were foaming at the mouth for a new challenge. Never mind that the moon landing was carried live on television (complete with audio and video), moon rocks were brought back to Earth, and the landing site can still be seen with high-powered telescopes. They reason that the event just had to be staged, because evil governmental operatives are always looking for new ways to mess with our heads.

To make their case that the lunar mission was staged, the hard core “moon troofers” use the following examples:

    I was watching a show about the Kennedy assassination and one of the people interviewed made the best point: “People want to believe in conspiracies because their minds can’t fathom the fact that someone would actually kill the President.”

    It’s paraphrased of course but it is a great explanation.

    If it was staged, I doubt they would have gotten rid of the original footage.
