Filtered oddity in space: the moon-landing hoax

Strange news arrive at The Filter's newswire. It's about a website promoting a film that promises to prove once and for all that the moon-landing was a hoax. Since the press-release is really interesting, I decided to share it with readers in its entirety, verbatim, just like Bloomberg sometimes does.

Bart Sibrel, writer, director and producer of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon (AFTH) has upped the ante in his quest to prove the Apollo moon landings were not authentic by launching a new web site and releasing three new DVDs: Astronauts Gone Wild (AGW), Apollo 11 Monkey Business (MB) and Apollo 11 Post-Flight Press Conference (PC).

AGW features the complete footage that aired two nights in a row on Leno and around the world which showed an altercation between Sibrel and Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Aldrin punched Sibrel in the face after Sibrel called Aldrin “a liar, coward and a thief” for his role in continuing to perpetrate the hoax.

“I have since apologized for provoking him to hit me,” Sibrel said. “And the fact remains that we did not go to the moon. It is a travesty to be misleading the world in this important area of science.”

PC is the complete footage of the August 11, 1969 press conference in which members of the press questioned Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins after their alleged return from the moon.

Sibrel believes that anyone watching this footage with a truly open mind will discern quickly that the astronauts are lying. “They look like they are at a funeral for an hour and a half,” he says, “instead of victorious warriors worthy of praise.”

“After spending half of a million dollars and ten years researching this topic, I would bet my life that the moon landings were fraudulent,” Sibrel said.

Sibrel said that while altered transcripts (when comparing the transcript with the footage) and audio clips of the post-flight conference have already been available, this is the only DVD that shows the video of this conference in its entirety.

MB contains nearly two hours of Apollo 11 footage which Sibrel believes reveals the staging taking place during the mission.

“Included is the unedited footage of the Apollo 11 crew faking being half-way to the moon when they are clearly in low-Earth orbit,” Sibrel said.
