As I said before, I've seen plenty of evidence that we went, but on the other hand, I've seen conflicting evidence too - an example being the video of the 'wires' supporting the astronauts, which as Scott says, may well be just NASA disinformation, and the video I linked to, from NASA itself, discussing the fact that they can't go to the moon or Mars until the radiation problem is solved. This wouldn't be an issue if they had gone there. They'd have solved the problem already.

Again, we have what appears to be NASA disinformation, with the ongoing discussion of the 'original' and 'tampered' photo in the "What Lunar Structure?" thread. Why are there two versions of the same photo? What's the point of NASA's disinformation? If they went to the moon, great! Why leak disinformation to plant the seeds of doubt? What's the need for that?

Yes, that's true. It's a very valid point, and one which I was thinking of, but didn't express when I wrote earlier. I really don't have a clear answer to that.

Paranoia? I'm not paranoid! I'm sceptical, that's all!

No, it prevents gullibility from taking over.

There's nothing wrong with healthy scepticism. Gullibility is not on the same level as a healthy dose of scepticism.
