'Belief' isn't relevant. It's fact it happened. If people don't think that it did they are a bit fick innit.

Step 1: go to Google images

Step 2: enter "telescope moon landing sites"

Step 3: look at the photos of abandoned lunar modules, etc.

Step 4: stop asking daft questions

A dick measuring contest with the Russians.

Occam's razor applies:
1. It would have been technically more difficult and more expensive to fake it with 1960s technology than to actually go there*
2. Given a cold war space race with the Russkis, if the Yanks tried to fake it, would the Russians really have kept quiet about it for 50 years, or would they have watched the radar traces, monitored the comms and recognised that 'yepski, the Yanks did land on the moon'?
3. There are artifacts from the landings visible by telescope, on the moon

To summarise:
Anyone who thinks it was fake is an imbecile.

While not disagreeing with your conclusions, sorry but Occam's razor (which I find far more relevant than any moonlanding) should only be applied when both hypotheses are equally plausible.

It's also a fact that the Yanks seriously considered blowing up the moon with a nuke as a demonstration of their might during the Cold War. Thankfully the idea was shelved as the effects would have been catastrophic.

I'm really not convinced that that is true. It may be a more useful tool when that is the case, but I don't think it's valid to say that that is the only time when it's applicable. For example, from Wikipedia's Occam's Raqzor page (which is by no means definitive evidence, but I think is reasonable to include) "Occam's Razor instead is saying that when presented with competing hypotheses that make the same predictions, one should select the solution with the fewest assumptions and is not meant to filter out hypotheses that make different predictions, which doesn't filter out anything by plausibility.

same prediction/outcome - claimed moon landing; different hypotheses - actual moon landing based on technology or fake moon landing based on idiocy and bull****.

Occam's Raqzor, thought that he was some kinda starwars or startrek person who told you that we did land on the moon.

So without you key witness, it might be fake after all?
