We were in a space race back then and if the Russians knew we were making it all up, I would think they would try everything in their power to "one up us" and send their own people to the moon to prove we were lying, but they didn't. I think that's probably the easiest way to disprove the conspiracy theorists.
Naturally.

First, they continued their N1 project for years after the US landing. Had they had conclusive proof that the US didn't actually land, they would have plowed ahead instead of letting it die. Or certainly decried the failure of the US to land (or even go).

There was other independent evidence, such as that from Jodrell Bank in the UK tracking the Apollo 11 landing. They also tracked Luna 15's landing which happened the same day as the moonwalk, July 21st 1969.

The tinfoil hat wearers don't know a cotton-picking thing about what it would have taken to fake the broadcast. This video explains it incredibly well:

There actually is no moon. The government put a big paper cut out up there to keep us distracted. While you were looking at the moon, you did not notice what the government did to your feet did you?

There is also the laser reflector still up there I believe, although I do not think it can be used with a business pointer laser.

It requires a high power laser and an observatory class dish to receive the faint signal you get back.

But it certainly has been used.

How many stupid people does it take to fly to the moon? None. They're too dumb to figure out how to do it.
