Default Moon Landing... Real or Not?

Mary Jane thread got me thinking, I’d like to hear some folks thoughts on different conspiracy theories, and what they do/don’t believe in. Or if they have their own lol Could be about anything... Illuminati, Coronavirus, Government, Vaccines, War, Big Foot, Aliens, Big Pharm, NASA etc

Moon landing was real...along with the tapes if the astronauts saying " they are watching us"
Aliens are real, plenty of proof world wide.
Human civilization was once much smarter than we are today...likely several hundred million years ago.
And no, the ancient Egyptians did not build the pyramids

The only thing I find somewhat questionable is JFK's assassination.

Don't know about the rest of them. If Aliens are real that's cool with me as long as they don't abduct me and put stuff in my butt or nothin. Same goes for illegal aliens. I'd rather just not experience anything like that if I can help it. Sometimes it's better to just not know.

I woke up thinking about the JFK assassination for some reason this morning. It all doesn’t make sense, I read into Jack Ruby and his reasoning for killing Oswald. It doesn’t add up.

My biggest conspiracy theory is that people that complain/hate hogs, actually love hogs! They put corn feeders up, without fences or barricades, for hogs to eat, because they want to bring them onto their property, in hopes of having easy target rich environment.

My conspiracy theory on the moon landing is that we did, in fact, land on the moon.

But, NASA also had a backup plan that included a faked landing scene set up on a soundstage to be used in case the landing attempt was a failure or some other catastrophe occurred so that we could still beat the Russians.

I have spent way too much time in conspiracy theorist circles for my own good.

I find the whole thing fascinating on a lot of levels, they are fun thought experiments but if you look at them empirically they almost all fall apart.

JFK was the last one that I placed much credence on the conspiracy narrative until I realize just how unimpressive the feat actually was...

Rob Brotherton's " Suspicious Minds"
Farhad Manjoo's "True Enough"
And Michael Shermers "Why we Believe Weird Things"

Those three books really illuminated to me the psychological reasons why people have the need to believe in giant, sweeping conspiracies.

It mostly boils down to a combination of narcissism, deep rooted insecurity and feelings of disempowerment and the good old fashioned Dunning Kruger effect causing people to have the need to feel that everything is under control, even if it is under control by "the bad guys" the belief that they are important enough for the rich elites to spend their time dreaming up ways to dupe us and the need to feel like they possess some sort of deep truth that the sheeple are just to asleep to see.

Theres actually a LOT of similarities between the global scale conspiracist mindset and that of the extreme woke intersectional Left.

Is there evidence of this? You can read the speech we had prepared in the event of mission failure.

JFK was my last big one. After hours and hours of conspiracy theories I came to the conclusion Oswald did it. Ruby was a nobody that wanted to be somebody. Vincent Bugliosi put together a mountain of evidence. Went to the site shortly after and realized anyone who claimed Oswald wouldn't have been able to make the shot had either not been there, or were just trying to push their narrative.

Lately I get a lot of joy from flat Earth debunking videos. I don't think half the people who push flat Earth actually believe it though.

Some head scratcher conspiracy videos I've seen lately:

1. Stevie Wonder isn't blind.
2. Gorillas, pandas, orangutans are fake. Just people in suits.
3. Mud flood.
4. Zebras are painted donkeys.
5. Satellites are fake.
6. US is only half the size we're told.
7. Every war from Vietnam to present day is fake.

Before you get in an argument with a conspiracy theorist remember that you can’t reason someone out of a belief they didn’t reason themselves into. Believing satisfies a need they can’t even explain.

I don't believe in any of the conspiracy theories. I don't get why some people just can't accept the easy answer even when it's the only logical one. As far as aliens, why would I think in this whole universe the Earth is the only planet capable of sustaining life. My question is how they would stumble on our planet from hundreds of thousands of light years away. I have watched at least 5 different documentaries on ways the pyramids could have been built with the technologies of day that make since. The only question on that is which way was it done because they left no records.
