Good debunking site on this topic:

http://epsc.wustl.edu/admin/resources/moon/howdoweknow.html



Any geoscientist (and there have been thousands from all over the world) who has studied lunar rocks knows that anyone who thinks the Apollo lunar samples were created on Earth as part of government conspiracy doesn’t know much about rocks.* The Apollo samples are just too good.* They tell a self-consistent story with a complexly interwoven plot that’s better than any story any conspirator could have conceived.* I’ve studied lunar rocks and soils for 30+ years and I couldn’t make even a poor imitation of a lunar breccia, lunar soil, or a mare basalt in the lab.* And with all due respect to my clever colleagues in government labs, no one in “the Government” could do it either, even now that we know what lunar rocks are like.


Apologies if this is common knowledge, but I hadn't seen this page before.

You forget, ToSeek. All these geologists worldwide are part of the conspiracy. Everyone knows that.
