      Nah, he really did! 🙂

      There have been sooooo many conspiracy theories about this. Like when he put the flag up and it looked like it was blowing about… but there’s no wind on the moon… it’s a vacuum.

      Then when photos were taken, some of the shadows seemed to be of different lengths.

      I mean, I can’t say for sure because I wasn’t there. They wouldn’t take me with them on that journey. I begged and pleaded with Neil but he wasn’t having any of it 🙂

      I believe it was true. It would take a lot of effort to fake!

      If they acted it out – how did they manage to put a mirror on the moon that you can reflect a laser beam off from the earth — see this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-aFTeXjcRw

      Hey Dandaman,

      I have heard so many different conspiracy theories, and this is one of the best ones. I personally don’t think the Russians would accept that the Americans made it to the moon if they didn’t, there was too much riding on it. So I think he did land on the moon.
