A comment 3 years ago on YouTube by one Drew Singer:
I believed for many years that we did not land on the moon and that is was all just an elaborate hoax. I got in a million arguments with people about how we did not go and I was so certain and wouldn’t listen to anyone or believe otherwise. I believed I was the open-minded one and that everyone else was closed-minded. I would be so flabbergasted that the rest of the world couldn’t see how obvious it was that we didn’t go to the moon. I would get so frustrated with the people who were “asleep”. There was seemingly so much evidence that we never landed a man on the moon.
One day out of the blue, sparked by something that made me think. (I don’t remember what that was) What if I was the closed-minded one? What if I was the one who was wrong. I came to the realization that I was looking only for evidence that we had not gone and I was completely ignoring the evidence that we clearly did land a man on the moon.
I was so blinded by my ignorant search for proof that we did not go that I couldn’t see anything that suggested otherwise. How foolish and ignorant it was of me to believe that it was out of the realm of possibility that we could not safely land a man on the moon and return him safely to the earth.
And as with all who argue that we did not go, what the hell did I know? What do those people know when we have these brilliant minds telling us that we went and that it is possible? People who know what they are talking about. They are far more intelligent and educated in the sciences that put a man on the moon.
I had no leg to stand on. I was a fool. And how disrespectful I was to the great people, the wonderfully brilliant minds that all got together for a moment in history as one nation, with one common goal in mind and did something that many thought was impossible. So seemingly impossible that many still can’t, and won’t believe it today.
I really hate to break it to you though, NEIL ARMSTRONG AND BUZZ ALDRIN went to the moon. Do the research. The proof, the undeniable evidence is there. But if you won’t open your mind enough to see both sides of the argument, you will continue to be blind to the truth. Once you realize it, it will become humorous to you that you ever believed otherwise. Take it from me, as someone who, like yourselves, could not and would not be convinced otherwise.
Malley: Was the moon landing faked?
Armstrong: People love conspiracy theories. They’re very attractive, but they were never a concern to me — because I know that one day somebody’s going to fly back up there and pick up that camera I left there.
