This is Matt, and although he doesn't consider himself a conspiracy theorist, he holds a very unpopular opinion.

Although he doesn't have any JFK assassination conspiracy theories, President Kennedy does factor into one of his reasons.

The U.S. was feuding with the Russians in 1961 when President Kennedy said that the U.S. would have a man on the moon by the end of the decade. So they had to do it.

Then there were concerns that Russia was going to build a missile base on the moon.

Seriously.

Seriously.

Matt is also skeptical about the technology to make the moon landing happen back then.

"Look at the computers that they were using in the mission control. They were like 16-bit computers. They were like TI-83 calculators."

Then there's the whole Van Allen Belts thing.

It's radiation outside the Earth's sphere that would literally tear up the human body.

Then there are the photos with competing shadows, suggesting a second light source besides the sun.

Hmmmmm.

Hmmmmm.

Then there's this:

Matt thinks the easiest way to prove a man was on the moon, is to show the things that were there. Yet, the argument is that there isn't a telescope big enough to see the stuff that's on the moon.

And lastly, the footage that exists can totally be recreated.

I mean, BuzzFeed did it pretty well.

Matt realizes his whiteboard looks a little crazy, but he encourages you to do your own investigating and come up with your own conclusions.

Because the truth is out there...or is it?
