There are dozens of articles out there serving as proper obituaries for American hero Neil Armstrong who passed away on Saturday. He was, of course, the first man to set foot on the moon as part of the Apollo missions back in the 1960s. The world watched by the millions as Armstrong landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, making his famous quotation that lives in the history books. We won’t retread this ground because all of the news organizations are doing a wonderful job of commemorating a great man. But this is a conspiracy site, as you know, and we do feel the need to provide our readers with a little insight into what this means to the conspiracy world.
The conspiracy theories surrounding the moon landing are well known and publicized. Many out there believe that the moon landing was faked, making it one of the most elaborate hoaxes of all time. We have delved into the moon landing hoax theories plenty of times before in Common Sense Conspiracy’s history, so if you are interested in the ins and outs of the theories, you can check out some of our past articles. The bottom line is that it seems that a lot of the “evidence” that was presented seeming to indicate that the moon landing was a hoax have been successfully debunked by scientists, experts, and common sense. But for those out there that still insist that the moon landing wasn’t real, the death of Neil Armstrong only encourages more debate. And, yes, on many forums around the Internet, there are already those whispers that the “secrets” have now been taken to the grave.
Well, nothing could be more ridiculous. Neil Armstrong was certainly the main figure that everyone remembers from the moon landing. But there are hundreds of people still alive today that were involved in the execution of the program, including the fellow astronauts that landed on the moon with Neil. The idea that Neil Armstrong passing away means that no one will ever know for sure is just silly. If the moon landing was a hoax, there are still plenty of people walking around that know it was. And that is rule number one of a conspiracy of that kind. Too many people know about it, it will never work out. With that many people being aware of what happened, someone would have anonymously tried to expose it by now. And NASA and the government can’t go around killing off everyone that was involved in the program. So, Neil Armstrong’s death should be mourned and his legacy appreciated, but not even the craziest conspiracy theorist out there should see it as a lost chance for “truth.”
