It is widely accepted that the moon landing(s) were real. However, there is an argument to be made that the United States faked the moon landing. Here are some argument points you could use:
- The space race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union during the Cold War was deemed highly important. It was a show of power that could have political implications. Therefore, the U.S. would have a definite motive to fake the landing.
- The last manned moon mission was in 1972, over 40 years ago. The question looms, "Why haven't we, or any other country, gone back since?"
- The flag planted in the video appears to be moving due to the air, when there wouldn't be any air to move the flag
- Some pictures from the moon landing have shadows forming in different directions - which could implicate that different sources of light were being used, and therefore staged.
Please note that some (if not all) of these bullet points have been debunked. However, it is up to individual interpretation to decide which explanations are correct. So, an argument could be made that there is uncertainty to the truth behind the moon landing.
