Apollo 11 Moon Landings were faked by NASA

Proponents of the Apollo moon landing hoax accusations allege that the Apollo Moon Landings never took place, and were faked by NASA with possible CIA support. Enthusiasts of this theory claim that:



1
The astronauts could not have survived the trip because of exposure to radiation
2
The photos were altered: the Crosshairs on some photos appear to be behind objects, rather than in front of them where they should be
3
The quality of the photographs is implausibly high.
4
There are no stars in any of the photos, and astronauts never report seeing any stars from the capsule windows.
5
Identical backgrounds in photos that are listed as taken miles apart.
6
The moon's surface during the daytime is so hot that camera film would have melted.
7
No blast crater appeared from the landing
8
The launch rocket produced no visible flame.
9
The flag placed on the surface by the astronauts flapped despite there being no wind on the Moon.


Are these things true?or just made up by the news site?

1.  /The radiation you are speaking of is the Van Allen belt which is around the earth.  It is intense radiation that if someone stayed in would be dead within 2 hours, but the belt which is narrow, the astronauts only spent a few seconds in.  
2.  I have never seen crosshairs that were added in, but the crosshairs are translucent so some objects might look to be above the crosshairs.
3.  The photos are not all high quality but most are due to two things.  One no atmosphere to worry about minor distortion and also NASA spent the most money to make sure that they get the best pictures.  Wouldn't you if you sent people to the moon?
4.  There are no stars in the photos due to sun light.  If the photos are filtered, presto the stars come out.  
5.  This could be clerical error, or that features on the moon are nondescript.  Could be either or, but I don't think malicious intent on this.
6.  Not true.  The Moon's surface temprature is -23 C.
7.  The impact of the lander which was practiced dilligantly for many many months was timed to be a gentle landing, not an impact.  And if you watch the footage you can see a dust cloud from it landing.
8.  Flame in space does not work like on earth.  There won't be a long plume and no smoke.  The thrust would be short flames and probably not even seen past the cone of the rocket base.
9.  The flag moved because the person putting it in had to force it into place, hence the back and forth action forcing it into the ground transfered onto the flag and eventually disapaited.  And it was more of a shake than a flap.


Truth is the tech we had then was succicent to get to the moon and back and we did it.  Thinking otherwise is an insult to humanity and its inability to control its destiny.  Like those who believe that we didn't build the pyramids because we were too stupid?  Plus the ammount of people that would know if it was a fraud is astronomical!  Anyone keeping a secret knows that if more than two people know then its no longer a secret.

I came here to chew bubble gum and kick ***...  And I'm all out of bubble gum.

There is already an on-going 'moon landing hoax' thread in this very same section, there isn't a reason for another. Please take your time to read over the information provided there and then ask your questions if they haven't been answered. Thank you for your co-operation.

Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan

"...man has an irrepressible tendency to read meaning into the buzzing confusion of sights and sounds impinging on his senses; and where no agreed meaning can be found, he will provide it out of his own imagination." ~ Arthur Koestler
