Was the Moon Landing a Conspiracy?

There are millions of people who believe the US never put a man on the moon. Because the latest generation wasn't around to watch the landing on TV there are more people who think NASA has conspired against the world. I'm one of the many who didn't see the televised landing but I'm convinced man has been to the moon.

One of the many questions puzzling non-believers is why haven't we been to the Moon since 1972? It's not like we're in the movie Gattaca where they had yearly flights to Saturn. Should we have daily trips to the Moon? We now know lots about the Moon so we don't need to return. We should be exploring other planets where humans could live (We can't live on the Moon.)

People question why there aren't any stars in photos of astronauts on the Moon. They can ask themselves the same thing after taking a picture under a street light at night. No stars will appear in that picture either because the camera is set to expose the lighted area (the person standing under light) and not the weaker light source. The stars were too dim to pick up. It's not like in the movies.

We all know the Moon has no atmosphere so the US flag shouldn't flap in the wind yet people claim that it did. We could always blame the movement on vacuums, but the more obvious should be pointed out. The flag only waved when an astronaut was holding onto the pole the flag was on. There were metal rods in the flag so it didn't just hang there but it did move when the pole was handled.

Here's something else non-believers want us to consider. In 1961, President John F Kennedy promised to put a man on the Moon within 10 years. The US also wanted to outdo the Soviet Union. They were having a little head butting battle at the time called the Cold War. So in order to keep JFK's promise, the US spent $25 billion, made sure thousands of employees could keep a secret and faked a Moon landing. Seem a little far fetched? That's cuz it is.

What did the US gain from landing on the Moon? Absolutely nothing. They aren't the only ones with the technology to land on the Moon so it's nothing to brag about. Faking a landing on the moon would have only been a hassle. Next we'll be arguing about whether the Earth is flat or not.

Are you a believer or was that "small step for mankind" a big fake-out?

    "Oh. Um, OK..." I closed my eyes, and jumped. I hoped that I'd land on something. ​(("Um, I did. It's today." Paps chuckled. "You have no idea how many people I had to enlist..."))

    Error didn't answer, he just glanced up giving him a sort of look like 'are you really that clueless?' then went back to his game. Paperjam was visible on a floating rock down below, and he started jumping from rock to rock,. "come on!"  (PunMaster nodded. "If it's tiring, haven't you ever asked to get a break, have someone else do it for you for at least a day?")

    "Kid! What the heck are you doing? And what am I supposed to do?" I said this last part to PJ's dad, who barely took notice of me, glued to his phone's screen. ​(("I've been delivering messages in-between cities of the Underground for my brother. It gets really tiring sometimes, but Iron says I've been helping a lot, so I do my best!" He sighed.))

    Paperjam grinned. "Come on!" Paperjam grabbed Iron's hand, then ran along the path, until they came to an edge a little way away from where error had been... Only Error was there, sitting on the ground this time, still on his phone. Paperjam let go of Iron's hand, and looked out over the edge, waiting... then he suddenly jumped off the edge, plummeting. Error seemed to have little to no concern about what was occuring.  ("Hmm.. recently? I've been drawing, writing stories, roleplaying.. it's fun." PunMaster shrugged. "You?" )
