We went to the moon.

People who say otherwise are blithering morons.

Ok. Let me just point out that this thread is frickin' stupid. Second, ALL the moon landings were real. Well except that one to keep the people happy. Also, we never been to Mars yet. All we sent were the rovers. Mankind has yet to build the technology to send humans to Mars and Venus, the Earth's two closest planets. After Apollo 18, we never went back to the moon. You know why? Aliens. Something attacked the crew of Apollo 18 while they were on the moon. I wonder if I can a Mod to lock or delete this. In my opinion, this is SOMEWHAT spammy.

The moon landing was real, this thread is fake :p

Why does NS decide, exactly? Do we have some sort of power over the truth that I wasn't aware of?

There's a difference between 'compelling' and 'possible'. You claimed the former.

We could have sent men to mars and back in the 70's if the political will existed.

But it doesn't. That's the story of space exploration for you.

Compelling (Allright fine, compelling implies a greater majority than I realized, I'll say "somewhat convincing") in my opinion means they've presented me with something more than a sentence (multiple articles--does not mean it has to be true though) that says "NWO CONSPIRACY GUBERMINT EVIL", I lean heavily toward the statement that the moonlanding is real but I'm saying i might go more into the possiblity of the other side if I was convinced enough through a proper debate.

Taking only the track record for large organizations and government on telling the truth and combining that with that of their lies, there is no reason for me to believe that the first US landing on the moon went anywhere near how the official story describes it, or that it happened at all. Considering other factors, however, it is plausible that a moon landing did occur.

The important thing to take away is that blindly believing a story from a compulsive liar is simply mindless, and likely hypocritical as that is not usually your first choice of action when faced with such things. Do not be so quick to assume household familiarity with things you did not witness or experience first-hand. Recognize that there is room for dissonance, and that there should be. Tone down your fanaticism and relax your stubbornness. After all, it's not like this subject is rocket science... Or...?

Please.

Even thinking that there is a possibility that we didn't go to the moon betrays either massive ignorance on the topic or a willful disregard for reality.

Which one is it?

I don't have time for this kind of dogmatism. I am not disregarding reality, I am aware of space missions having technical difficulties, and I'm saying there is a possibility to it, but that does not mean I actually believe that it is fake. I have read about the space program and reality, but I'm not going to be be labeled with ignorance just because I actually looked into the landing somewhat before instead of blindly accepting it outright.

Edit: I don't mean the possibility of it never happened in history, I meant that the possibility of it not occuring at exactly that date in 1969 but most likely at maximum occuring correctly a couple months or a few years later.
