50 Years Ago, The Moon Landing Was Fake

Fifty years ago today, Apollo 11 launched into space from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida with its sights set on the moon. Some 240,000 miles later, “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

Or at least that’s what they want us to believe.

Since the passing of our dear friend Jared Lorenzen, I have decided to get behind one of his favorite conspiracy theories, that the moon landing was fake. Jared was a big believer in not believing in Apollo 11, ever since he and Shane Boyd watched a TV special on moon landing conspiracies, prior to a team meeting when they were at UK.

“We were late to a meeting because we had to finish watching it,” Lorenzen told The Rich Eisen Show back in 2016. “We were like, ‘Oh my God, dude! It totally didn’t happen.’”

It was one of many times Lorenzen accused NASA of staging the 1969 moon landing. He loved to bring it up on KSR whenever he could, like when he and I hosted together last summer and spent most of the time talking about conspiracies, ghosts and aliens.

So as America celebrates the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s launch today, I will do my part in keeping Jared’s hot take alive.

It was faked. Staged. Completely bogus. Everything you see and read today about that “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” is a lie.

    Can we not share conspiracy theories on the site? There are too many people that believe it. We actually have flat earthers. Man kind is moving backwards, please don’t be the driver…

      Well, considering they claim we don’t have the technology to go to the moon today, yet somehow we did 50 years ago. Also how did the original moon landing recording get “erased” and recorded over. You can’t erase a film strip.

    I don’t care about this post but I do care about America and this state of Kentucky and I think Matt Jones has the best intentions for the state of Kentucky and the average hard working man that lives in this state. I’m raised republican and sometimes find it hard to believe I’m a democratic but I’ll vote Matt Jones ANY DAY OVER McConnell. But it’s all about who u know and McConnell is in tight with the Gov.

      Just goes to show, you can raise your kids right and, if they don’t have any common sense, they can still get brainwashed by the media and associate themselves with people who hate this country as it was founded…

    The cover up wasn’t the actual landing, the cover up was what happened once they got there. Those two minutes of dead air and all the lost pictures and video were covering up the fact that they saw aliens on the moon. Neil Armstrong switched over to the private, medical backup line and told mission control about how enormous the spaceships were and how they were watching them. Why haven’t we been back in the past 50 years? We won the space race and then poof, no more moon discovery…hmmm.

      So they faked all 6 moon landings? Do you realize how crazy that sounds Drew? Surely you are jesting.

      Don’t you mean Jet fuel doesn’t burn hot enough to melt steel beams?

    I loved #22, but I turned the station any time he brought this nonsense up on the radio show. It would not have been possible to fake the moon landing in 1969, with the contemporary technology. The moon landing happened. Conspiracy theories don’t hold water, because you cannot keep enough people quiet for long enough. If Watergate couldn’t be covered up, then how the hell could a fake moon landing?

      Actually it would have been far easier to fake the landing in 69′ than today. Today anything that can be filmed in HD will be filmed in HD. Try reading…

      I’m glad we finally exposed this truth. I’ve been telling people for years that Elvis isn’t dead, but has been spotted at several shopping malls. Did I happen to mention that most of America’s school shootings are staged events? He was a great Wildcat, but I don’t believe that a handful of astronauts, besides the thousands of NASA employees could ever keep such a secret.

    Conspiracy theories are a lot like religion. If there isn’t an answer that is provable with facts or science, you just fill in the blanks with something made up that either makes you feel better/safer or gives you some control over others.

    I always thought the 1899 moon landing was also faked.

    The amount of wooshing going on for these comments is hilarious. Don’t any of you just ever freakin get the joke? Doesn’t anyone just relax and laugh anymore? Wow.

    All out HISTORY that has been taught is a lie all the way back to dinosaurs! The millions of years bullshit it wat it is bullshit! FUNNY thing is the word Dinosaur wasn’t invented until 1841! You may ask what were they called before the word dinosaur!? Well that is a simple answer just like the Bible says what they were. DRAGONS! People are so brainwashed on the lies we have been fed in our school systems, TV, media etc.. It’s all trying to deny the existence of God, Jesus Christ and the Bible. The truth on our history is unlocked by following the road starting at GENISIS 6. The Flood was real, Dragons were real, Man lived with Dragons or today’s term Dinosaur. There is history and proof of this everywhere. Everything but a T-shirt and their is probably that somewhere. Oh yeah it clearly shows in EGYPT the pyramids were built by Giants as well. GENISIS 6 is the doorway to the true history of the world.

    They had plenty of room on that little lunar module to fit a high quality film camera, dark room, and broadcast facility to beam those images and a radio signal back to earth from the moon. Meanwhile WLAP still doesn’t have a good enough transmitter to be heard consistently while driving to Versailles or Danville. Good thing KSR wasnt around in the 60s or we’d never made it to the moon with that damned curse of theirs. One remote show from the sea of tranquilizers or the dark side and the whole return trip would be ruined.

    Regarding the “flat earth” I had a friend who worked as a surveyor in Illinoise for a few years. If there was anywhere that was going to be flat, he’d have seen it there. He just says “Nope. Still lookin for some of that flat earth.”

    Btw, if you look really close at the film footage of at least one moon landing, you can see a hand reaching for a coca cola bottle and a bag lunch in one scene that they forgot to edit out.
