It offends me when people put words in a dead mans mouth.  Neil saw nothing but lifeless desolation on the moon.  You are confusing the terms "skeptic" and "discernment". Accept what he said and not what others claim he said.

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.

If you don't like what the website say's disregard it.  Isn't that standard skeptic policy?

Nuff said.
My previous post was intended as a reply to the one above.  My apologies, a Windows smartphone, which I have been saddled with is less intuitive than the more popular models.  Hence, I repeat:

If they are telling lies and fabricating stories, please explain how you know.  

Two people with a similar tale.

Over to you Jim.

Jim has more years experience than most of the astronauts.  Many more years.  He comes across strongly for good reason...many wannabees, conspiracy theorists, charlatans and all around know-it-alls give ufology a bad name.
You have been told and informed before that most of the "eye witness accounts" are by untrained observers.  Space is vastly different from walking in your backyard.  You need to know the lighting conditions and the exact time of the video before drawing any extrapolations.
For goodness sake educate yourself.  You seem to think anyone disagreeing with you has a plot of coverup.

If NASA had evidence of intelligent life they would publicise it widely because it would result in funding and budget increases beyond our wildest dreams!
There is no coverup!  Get it out of your head!

Not what Edgar Mitchell says, and I reckon he is more likely to know what NASA is up to than you are.

That's the beauty of it. - Capeo If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. - Sir Isaac Newton Let me repeat the lesson learned from the Sturrock scientific review panel: Pack up your old data and forget it. Ufology needs new data, new cases, new rigorous and scientific methodologies if it hopes ever to get out of its pit. - Ed Stewart Youtube is the last refuge of the ignorant and is more often used for disinformation than genuine research.  There is a REASON for PEER REVIEW... - Chrlzs Nothing is inexplicable, just unexplained. - Dr Who

And who is it that is telling you what to believe? That's a two way street I'm afraid.

Nonsense,we all know the moon is an egg.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Talk about resurrecting  i really wish that NASA or another private space company would take one more trip to the moon. Take all of our new equipment and a handful of top CTs and film and let them look. Then when they come on and say there was nothing there it can finally be put to rest.

Except it won't. Either they will claim it was all stated by NASA or the ex-CT believers will be accused of being disinfo agents.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

This is true, I must admit CTs have a great set up. Believe whatever you want and the parts you don't like declare it a cover up.

We haven't gone back to the moon because politicians equate it with "climbing the highest mountain" and see no political glory in climbing it twice. They won't wake up until the Chinese or Russians get there and then they'll be all over getting us back there, in a frantic, whiny way. Nothing like a little competition to stir the pot. Besides, NASA was given a choice of moonbase, space station or shuttle and we know how that turned out.

"An atheist, like a Christian, holds that we can know whether or not there is a God. The Christian holds that we can know there is a God; the atheist, that we can know there is not. The Agnostic suspends judgment, saying that there are not sufficient grounds either for affirmation or for denial."

Is there any reason we continually have humans in Earth orbit? Don't get me wrong, I am not against having humans in orbit. But do they do anything that can't be done by satellites or other machines? I know in the past that certainly was the case. But machines are getting pretty sophisticated these days.
