Hey here's an experiment...get a sphere like a billiard ball or a bowling ball and find something that proportionally is the size of a human being and put it on the ball. Of course the ball doesn't generate the same gravitational forces the Earth does so ya might hafta put it on top. You couldn't even see it fall...even if it did...which it won't.

So gravity sucks everything to the bottom of space or something and it's not that the earth is round and therefore gravity causes everything to fall towards the center of the earth?

We haven't been back because the Decepticons have claimed it first and they don't want us there after stealing some of their technology. DUH!

Pretty sure she's kidding. I've read a lot of her posts; I don't think she's that dumb.

The manned Apollo missions were almost certainly nonsense. Hollywood trickery. A huge cold war propaganda campaign and taxpayer fleece. Grade A American Bullsh*t. Unmanned probes sent to the moon and Mars and the Voyager missions are probably authentic IMO. (And my best guess based on factors is that the earth is spherical before any of you crazy mooners throw that canard at me.)

Is there some reasoning behind this assessment?

You should add some more factors, then.

Not nonsense. As I said in post #6, the Apollo missions were independently tracked by observers around the world who had no connection with NASA. The USSR was one such observer and tracked the Apollo spacecrafts as they made their way to the moon.
Third-party evidence for Apollo Moon landings

BTW - those unmanned probes sent to the moon photographed the locations of the manned landing sites. The hardware left on the moon is clearly visible in those photos.

I don’t doubt it is possible they were tracking something that was on it’s way to the moon, it just wasn’t that ridiculous tin can they showed us on TV with the 3 stooges floating around in it. They were in low earth orbit and that is as far as they got. The launch was real of course...that part obviously had to be since people were watching it live. The rest of it was a Hollywood sound stage. Wernher Von Braun knew it was all nonsense but he wasn’t in much of a position to make any noise about it. (I’m sure the American government saw to it that their Nazi war prize was living out a very comfortable existence in exchange for his cooperation, so that was that.)

You could go back and forth all day on this one. You ponder the evidence and it’s sources and either believe what you’ve been told or you don’t. I’ve made up my mind that this one smells just as rotten as 9/11, so it probably is.
