Did we land on the Moon in 1969? The verdict’s in!

Those who feared the naysayers were right and Man never landed on the Moon in 1969 can relax: the results of our poll are in and, if the majority are right, Man did, indeed, land on the Moon in 1969.


The poll was a lighthearted attempt to encourage discussion among the members of our new group on Goodreads.com. “29 Conspiracy Theories – A discussion group” was established to promote discussion on the controversial topics explored in our book, The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy.

Our poll simply asked the question: Did we land on the Moon in 1969?

According the majority of our members, we did! Hallelujah, we can hear NASA enthusiasts rejoice.

However, it was a slim majority and this poll ended up a little closer than expected…

54.1% of those polled say we did land on the Moon.
31.1% say we did not.
14.8% are ‘undecided’.


This Moon poll roughly reflects most mainstream polls conducted by the media which regularly show that 25-30% of Americans believe the 1969 Moon landings never happened. That makes the Moon landing hoax theory – after the JFK non-Oswald assassination theory, Princess Diana murder theory and the 9/11 inside job theory – to be one of the most commonly believed conspiracy theories of all.

Actually, now that we do the math we note this group’s results are a little higher than the usual 25-30% average, but hey this is a conspiracy theory group after all and we will know doubt attract a few tinfoil hat wearers and/or mental asylum residents (ourselves included, truth be told).

Here’s a few randomly selected comments from our poll (names withheld):

It’s often been claimed that Stanley Kubrick ‘directed’ the fake moon landing. There’s some very interesting stuff about this in the documentary that explores hidden meanings in his film The Shining: the film Room 237. Such things as the boy Danny’s sweater featuring the Apollo rocket are seen as Kubrick’s ‘admission’ of his involvement with it.
The full documentary is available on YouTube (in the U.K at least). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y18Nl…


It was real. Come on people. A government conspiracy? Some of you must be off of your medication.


As President Bill Clinton wrote the following in his 2004 autobiography, My Life: “Just a month before, Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong had left their colleague, Michael Collins, aboard spaceship Columbia and walked on the moon…The old carpenter asked me if I really believed it happened. I said sure, I saw it on television. He disagreed; he said that he didn’t believe it for a minute, that ‘them television fellers’ could make things look real that weren’t. Back then, I thought he was a crank. During my eight years in Washington, I saw some things on TV that made me wonder if he wasn’t ahead of his time.”  


According to all the film on the event, it would have been a very elaborate set to pull off complete with the visual of the earth and solar system in the backdrop during a time when technology had not progressed to the point of creating the kinds of special effects that we have today. I was alive and well during this time and the ‘Race for Space’ was a very real and viable project during this time instituted between our government and Russia …. we won.   


I’m one out of my generation 1960’s that believe it was all fabricated y done on a movie set to gain whatever agenda they needed to get done. If we made it with hardly no technology in the 60’s it should be like going on vacation now in the technical age of wonders. Just a thought.   


The thing I never understood about the fake moon landing theory is that the motives that are always given are to do with the U.S wanting to win the space race against Russia. What I don’t get is that surely Russia would have been able to track and verify Apollo, so doesn’t that debunk that theory? However, there’s plenty of good, rational evidence that we didn’t go- and the film Capricorn One seemed to almost be mocking us- but personally I’m undecided. I think there are a lot of things governments know about things beyond our atmosphere that they don’t tell us.


I think it has less to do with our technology at the time and more about alien technology that got us there in the first place. I too saw the lunar landing and Neil Armstrong take his steps on the moon, but it was a power greater than us that helped.  


The apollo landed on the Moon. But they found something there (UFO bases?) and NASA didnot broadcast the true image which they saw there.
