We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

The Moon landings conspiracy

By now of course, all right (read ‘left’) thinking people are fully conversant with the theory that the Moon landings were faked by the US government in a warehouse decorated with papier-mache and pieces of screwed-up tinfoil somewhere in the Nevada desert. This elaborate hoax was perpetrated as an underhand PR attack on the Soviets, who would never have indulged in any such below-the-belt behaviour, being too busy with stuff like this (hat tip: The Bleat).

I don’t know this for sure, but I am guessing that probably most of America’s nukes were fake as well, and possibly even some of their presidents. We already know that Star Wars was fraudulent (the strategic defense initiative, not the popular sci-fi movie series, which was, of course, entirely true to life) and it has been suggested in the past that Ronald Reagan himself was actually a puppet from ‘Spitting Image’. Although I suspect that particular theory may have arisen from some confusion about the difference between real life and what one sees on television. Clearly human evolution still has work to do.

Anyway, for those of you who have not seen this already (not new itself, but possibly new to others than just me) irrefutable proof of the faking of the moon-landings can be found right here. Those of British origin will particularly appreciate these pictures. Essential viewing for all human beings who still have brains.

  • Good stuff Alice. Now I can face any space geek and show him the real face of NASA and its space research! A bit pink and blue for my taste, if you ask me but the truth is out there! Way out there…

  • I bloody well knew it. Some of the clangers have clearly been photoshopped as well

  • Dale Amon

    I’ll have to ask Buzz or Harrison about it the next time I run into them ;-)

    Far from being evidence that the moon landings were faked, this seems to me to support the view that Earth was visited by extra-terrestrials many centuries ago. The ‘mythical’ Centaur is obviously a racial memory of the Soup Dragon.

    Careful observation also reveals “stars” in the first and second images, but in the second and third images we see no stars.

    A NASA friend of mine told me he knows the guy who made the holes in the black cloth.

  • S. Weasel

    The only guy I ever knew who was a moon-shot denier was a staunch righty. He was forever introduced as “Bob So-and-so, who doesn’t believe the moon landing was real.”

  • The moon landing is only real if you believe the moon is real. And what is the moon, but a global socially constructed concept ?

    (puff…puff……potent stuff I tell you…got to go to Amsterdam more often….)

    Did you know Che Guevara was not dead ? He changed his name to Perry de Havilland and moved to the UK.

    puff….

  • Personally, I think that Aldrin and Armstrong went to the Moon and their camera broke. You can’t go all that way and bring back no photos, so NASA had to forge some. This theory also explains why the film footage doesn’t contain any of the obvious flaws of the photos.

  • D Anghelone

    Alitalia named its first 747 the Neil Armstrong so this was obviously the same conspiracy that killed JFK.

  • Walter Wallis

    Actually, all of you are just figments of my imagination. Keep quiet or I might wake up.

    No, no, NO!!! The moon landings were filmed at the Disney Studios, not in Nevada. Everyone knew that old Walt Disney was a staunch right-winger. In return Disney was given a huge track of land in Florida by the Pentagon/NASA on which they built Disney World.

  • That’s a cute site. But, they don’t say anything about our so-called “mission” to Mars.

  • Nei Arsestrong

    That damn nasascam site has totally blown our 36 year coverup. My mate Buzz met the author in a pub back in the late 80’s. He asked Buzz if he really did go to the Moon, and Buzz replied that of course he did. However Buzz spent to long in the pub and downed 16 pints. He then began foaming at the mouth like a mad dog and went over to the nasascam author and said “I never went anywhere near the fuckin Moon”

    I think it was then that the nasascam author decided to look for further evidence that it was indeed faked.

    Unfortunately he found that evidence and bloody well put it on the Internet.

    So it took roughly 70 years for technology to go from first airplanes to landing on the Moon……then 35 years later……technology can’t even take a photo of the LEM?

  • Peter

    The moon landing was a hoax.There is a great deal of evidence that it was not technologically feasible at the time and probably not feasible today.

    911 was an inside job.There were no planes.

    Nasascam & other moon landing hoax sites were backed financially by Muslims who did not believe men go to the moon because the moon is a sacred object for them. like fools other americans also joined them betraying their own country & the great sons of america who shed blood sweat & tears & in the space progam 40 years ago.How can any sane american call those ingenious people like the ones in Gruman Aerospce who designed that incredible flying machine LEM & call it a fake?
