The one thing that caught my eye and actually made me seriously evaluate whether or not these theories held water was the fact that the motive was there. If in fact the USA was nowhere near having the capability to land on the moon and get back safely, seeing how much political emphasis was put on this enterprise, it would not be unreasonable to assume that the USA would want to fake this event instead of being beaten by the Russians. The event would serve as propaganda to emphasis American dominance and American prosperity.
And that is where the "theory" falls apart.

If the point of lying about landing on the moon was to gain an advantage against the evil Commies, don't you think they would have been first in line to provide irrefutable evidence that it was faked?
How come the only people to doubt the moon landing are here?
