I won't say there wasn't a motive, but to have faked the moon landing would mean either convincing everyone at NASA they were doing something they actually weren't or forcing them into secrecy. Neither of those seems possible to me.
I dislike American foreign policy but we’re talking about moon landings, not that.
There’s a giant stack of evidence and plenty of it has been shared in this thread. If you are incapable of going out and reviewing the evidence and reaching the correct conclusion, there’s no point in me wasting any more time here.
There’s rover trails on the moon that can be seen with a large telescope. Same with multiple landing sites. And they also placed a laser reflector that has been used every day since they landed on the moon. They landed on the moon the exact dates they said they landed on the moon and broadcasted live and continuously.
Final nail in the coffin for the moon hoaxers is it would have been impossible to fake the broadcast at the time. This wasn’t film. It was video. The technology to fake live video at the time didn’t exist and it would have been impossible to transpose film to video without the slightest evidence of film artifacts.
You have to be a goddamn idiot to think we didn’t land in the moon.
