I was thinking that the title could be a metaphor for "it's not about the drugs".

You don't win by cheating. Claiming that Lance Armstrong won is deceitful.

Does the fact that the Apollo astronauts left a mirror on the moon surface, which you can use to measure the Earth-Moon distance by firing a laser to it and measuring the time it takes to come back, alter your doubts in any way?
The mirrors are rock-solid evidence that the moon landings were real. But the conspiracy theorists can be very creative:

1) Deny the mirrors exist. This requires that observatories all over the world are in on the conspiracy.

2) Claim that they were put there by an unmanned mission. If so, what mission?

3) Claim that the later missions were real, but the earlier ones were faked. But the mirror placed by Apollo 11 is there.

Here's a link to pictures of the Apollo landing sites taken from space. http://science.nasa.gov/science-news...09/17jul_lroc/

Here's more: http://www.space.com/12796-photos-ap...sites-lro.html

The likelihood of the Apollo landing being faked is about as likely as the existence of France being a fake. I've never been there, but I have good reason to think that it actually exist.

Mythbusters did an excellent refutation of the claims made by the those who believe the moon landings were faked.

Yes, if you were dumb enough to (a) believe the lie, and (b) buy something off him or her as a result.

Over here we have an authoritative court decision that Creationists are free to tell deliberate lies, even though they sell their books and make a quid as a result, because they are not thus engaging in trade or commerce. The same would apply to polly liars.

Cream cheese, proven by lasers bouncing off the foil packaging.

As the story goes, it's made of green cheese. Noe, does it mean a cheese that is actually green, or does it mean a cheese that has bluish-green flecks like a blue cheese? If the latter, is it more like a Roquefort or a Gorgonzola? What sort of wine do you eat with the moon? What impact would the mining of green cheese have on the Terran dairy industry?

Maybe it's "green cheese" as in cheese that isn't ripe yet?

It's only a paper moon,
Sailing over a cardboard sea.
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me.

I don't know about the moon.
But I am not going to believe anybody's been to Mars unless they show me pictures of Russell's Celestial Teapot.
