Well, according to Mitchell and Webb, it was faked - ON the moon!

If it had been a fake, I'm sure the Soviets would have instantly cried foul.

They had to fake it — Carl Sagan would not let people step around on his peaceful planet.
But they sent him a probe, as seen on this picture below;

You see how the shadows slant to the left, and Sagans hair to the right? It's because Carl Sagan can fucking bend space and time with his mind!
Also, notice he needs no space-suit to breathe in space, only a Yellow Polo-neck Sweater of Awesome. 8)
You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded. Because the elements, the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars. And the only way they could get into your body is if the stars were kind enough to explode.

So forget Jesus. The stars died so you could be here today.

It is faked. If we tried to go as high as they say, wouldn't we go through the ceilling? The moon is just an optical illusion of something being beyond the dome surrounding Earth, created by the illuminati to give the population the belief that we live on a spherical planet in a universe that is infinite in all directions. The stars are just a bunch of light bulbs, as are the planets. We are constantly walking in a curve around the north pole, but we don't realize it because we've been doing it all our lives. Similar goes for the nonexistant "South", but there is an ice wall there. Besides, how could we land on the moon with less technology than that in a cell phone? It must be fake.

Don't worry. I believe we really did land on the moon.

Unlikely. The only moon-capable rocket the soviets ever built blew up on the launchpad, killing everyone and leaving a bloody big crater.

The moon landing was in fact a clever hoax orchestrated to hide the fact that the real moon is actually a mere cardboard cutout hiding the Alien planet of Qublarx V. Of course the astronauts actually attempted to land on the moon, they were simply abducted and replaced by alien-lookalikes who performed the moon walk and sent it back to Earth to continue the ruse.


How do I know this you say? Why because I am one of the Qublarxians! That is right humans! We've been pretending to be your moon for centuries! Snar snar snar snar snar! You should see the look on your puny Earthling faces. Now hand over your tacos, your beer and your women.

I've got a better Idea, we'll send our nuclear arsenal, and if that doesn't work, we'll send Duke Nukem and if that doesn't work, we'll send Chuck Norris.

If you're moon-sized, what use, exactly, are our women for you?

Compatibility is an issue here, I believe.

1. The flag in the video was seen waving... On the MOON!

A vid explaining this one has already been posted by Norstal. The flag had a plastic rod through the top to keep it extended and simply shook from the motion of putting it in the ground.
2. None of the film was damaged by the space radiation. The thin shield the apollo provided wouldn't be enough to protect the astronauts or keep the film 100% intact.

Thickness doesn't matter if you use a dense shielding material. A thin coating of heavy metal, like the gold in their visors, would do the job just fine.
3. If the film is speed up a little bit the astronauts look like thy move normally... That proves it could be faked.

Except that if normal film is slowed down, it doesn't look anything like the moon footage does. Likewise, the dust behaves in ways it doesn't on Earth.
4. The landing the Apollo should have made all the nearby dust fly away, yet somehow Astrong makes a footprint...

The dust would only move if their was air to be turbulent. You already mentioned that their isn't air on the moon.
5. I Armstrong was the first man on the moon then who was filming him?

It was a three man team, Armstrong was just the first out of the craft and onto the surface. Also, putting a camera on the outside of a vehicle isn't all that hard.
