It's an established fact that
1. The Holocaust never happened - it was just a crop burn-off
2. The Moon landing was filmed in a TV studio - my uncle built the set
3. There never was a Berlin Wall
All very interesting and of course this is for the Moon Landing where the evidence is about 1 million times stronger than that for Global Warming (er, I mean, Climate Change, you know because the 'warming' forgot to happen.)
Yes, just follow the money, by faking the moon landing the government (or that sneaky bunch who really runs it) was able to ...? What were they able to do?
Like with Global Warming (er, Climate Change) where billions or trillions of dollars can be taken from a country like the U.S. and redistributed involuntarily to other countries, or take from those who now THINK the money belongs to them and given to the poor, or people running scams like Al Gore and his business friends.
You know how the President and other politicians (hey, maybe them guys are the guvmint?) can direct billions to their cronies with 'environmental' firms like Solyndra (a half a billion there alone.)
Chicago or Maryland style politics written VERY LARGE at the national level. Does anyone remember the LIGHT BULB contracts for the schools in Baltimore?

Yes, we did. Better question is: Could we do it again. And, I think not.
The 60s was a unique decade with a convergence of National will and technology.
The Saturn V was a monster of a rocket system. Even today's heavy lift rockets cannot match the Saturn V.
I met Buzz Aldrin in the early 1980s. I know people who worked on the LEM's main engine which was unique in that it had to throtteable.
The space program created several generations of engineers. As they retire, the US is left with a dearth of engineers... at least those who have touched actual hardware.
The flight computers of the era were comprised of RTL and DTL technology; and had less computational throughput than early calculators.
@DocWills: These urban legends get started and have legs of their own. There was even a motion picture about faking the moon landings.
If you really want to get into conspiracy theories, the JFK assassination is one of the biggest. It begs the question of whether Oswald, who was a Marine Corps reject, could operate a WWII surplus, 6.5mm Italian Carcanco, bolt-action rifle in under 2 seconds and acquire a target in the scope. Even FBI marksmen could not duplicate the rate of fire.

And speaking of conspiracy theories, who is the guy that dreams up all the conspiracy theories? Well I think it's that "government" guy again. Why would he do that? That seems obvious. He wouldn't have a job covering stuff up if there wasn't something to cover up, so to keep getting paid he has to come up with stuff to cover up and theories about why it's covered up. Simple.
Like Watergate. It's been proven that never happened. There never was a place named Watergate that got burgled. Didn't happen. That government guy just had the press write all that stuff to make the President look bad. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein: Clearly government guys.
Dare I mention that I have a fond spot for Capricorn One? Probably because at the time I liked James Brolin and of course Sam Waterston. It was full of favourite character actors of mine. The story was daft, but it was a fun ride.
The big question is why they faked Elvis' death? We KNOW he didn't die, he just went home.
