Sorry for the late-late notice, but if anyone who reads my blog is in or around the Colorado Springs, Colorado (USA) area, I will be giving a version of my talk about the Apollo Moon hoax: “The Apollo Moon Hoax: Why We Did Not Not Go to the Moon.”

The presentation will be about an hour including ~10 minutes for questions. It starts at 3PM and will be part of the Colorado Springs SkeptiCamp held at the Gay and Lesbian Fund, 315 East Costilla Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. (I personally find it interesting that there is a GLBT center in Colorado Springs considering how creationist the town is — it’s where the Focus on the Family headquarters is.)

In the presentation, I go through many claims put forth by Moon hoax proponents and show quickly and easily why they’re all, well, wrong. As an interesting bit of trivia, an earlier version of this talk was the first ever talk presented in conjunction with any SkeptiCamp. It wasn’t the first actual SkeptiCamp talk, but it was the talk the night before at the pre-party.


  1. Stuart,

    Billy Meier may be ground zero regarding the alleged Apollo 11 Moon Landing Hoax.

    Perhaps you could comment on his allegations here, as well as in your talk in Colorado Springs, as I am a couple thousand miles east and will not be able to attend.

    “Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, spoke of his pride at his historic achievement more than four decades ago during a rare public appearance in Australia.

    The former astronaut relived the moment he set foot on the lunar surface on July 21 1969 as he provided a personal commentary to attendees of an accounting seminar in Sydney.”

  4. I did a recording last night during practice, and I tried to record it during the talk an hour ago. I’ll have to listen to the live recording and see if it’s worth using. I think what I’ll do, if it is, is to put it out as a “Bonus” edition of my podcast in early October (since I already am planning a “bonus” episode for September 10/11). You won’t get the pictures (I may provide the slides?), but you’ll hear the audio.

    Apollo Moon Landing Hoax evidence release, predicted by BIlly Meier in April 2004.

    “You have further explained that the Moon landing lie will also be vehemently contested in the new millennium and everything will be undertaken to create “proof” and indeed again in the form that new fraudulent pictures are to be manufactured, in which allegedly, the first Moon landing’s “left-behind” objects and so forth, will be able to be “sighted” on the Moon through a new telescope and will be broadcast worldwide through television as a new fraud.

    The whole thing can eventually actually come about through a new type of telescope, always with the prerequisite that real materials were set out on the Moon, yet it could also be that then everything is only a studio set-up, as with the alleged first Moon landing.”
