Illustrated story about the so called Moon Landing hoax

Postby Kaj_Clausen » Sat Nov 28, 2015 7:12 pm

Hi There folks.

I have just made an illustrated story about the so called Moon Landing Hoax.

Comment are much appreciated. Please tell me if there are any factual mistakes.

This just might be the beginning of a series I am planning to share on social media sites with an interest in sceptisism.

Have a look at it here:

This is wrong : " the one were Buzz". Should be where. I skimmed your art. It looks cool. I'll read it more thoroughly later.

I'm a little motion sick* but think "holocaust" usually is capitalized. Like Clangers?

Here's my favorite video proof that the Moon landings were faked:

What a waste - taking a film crew all the way to the moon, and a light crew too.

Kennedy said himself that the Dallas shooting was not a hoax, but demanded that be "off the record."

I read your cartoon, Kaj_Clausen. The content is excellent. I really like it. You could publish it. However, you have an enormous number of small errors. If you want your thing to get published, you'll have to make it perfect.

Also, if possible, link to some sources that back up some of your claims, such as the 6 moon landings, the 400,000 figure, the percentage of people who believe the hoax notion, etc. I suppose the links should be outside of the actual cartoon, and just on your website?

And don't forget the Mythbusters debunking episode. Millions of people saw that.

Thanks for commenting.

I thought it was right to refer to it as the "so called" moon landing hoax as there is no evidence of any moon landing hoax.

What's the grassy knoll?

The grassy knoll refers to the conspiracy theories regarding the assassination of U.S. President Kennedy in the 1963.

When I Google “moon landing hoax”, I find numerous sites – which are sufficient evidence for me to believe there is a moon landing hoax. That hoax being conspiracy believers attesting to believe that the moon landings didn`t actually occur, and generating fake evidence to prove it. I do understand your usage of `so called` - but I just find it wordy, and possibly confusing.

Grassy knoll? It is there, in Dallas - and part of another conspiracy...

Thank you for the mostly positive feedback.
Not sure about the enormous amount of small errors though - there are some spelling mistakes, as I haven't had it proof read yet, and I'm not a native speaker of English.

I could have links to sources backing up my claims as you say. That's easy since I don't have to link to any weirdo-sites, but can link to just any ordinary encyclopeida or the Wikipedia. Will NASA do? Home of the hoaxers? ;)

Yes... in that sense there IS a moon landing hoax.

I thought that was what you meant but wasn't a 100% sure. Even on these sceptic sites I've had discussions with people who confuse being sceptic in a philosophical or scientific manner with being sceptical about the government, scientists, common knowledge and logic in general :-)

I skimmed through it, seems good but the overall artistic feels seems inconsistent, the photograph makes sense but maybe incorporate with your own artwork style for consistency.
