I believe it's total BS! Doesn't look like Kubrick (despite the awful camera work), doesn't sound like Kubrick. Maybe this guy is named Stanley Kubrick, it's not IMHO the film director!
Here's the real deal in a fascinatingly if long video:

In the linked video between 19:00 and 20:00 the 'director' even tells the actor -badly- pretending to be Kubrik to answer in character. The whole thing is absolute rubbish.
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has photographed all of the landing sites and the photos are publicly available to see. :)

At about the 19:15 mark he even tells him what to say. It's a fake and a poorly done one at that. Or it was meant as a joke.

Maybe one of you can help me find a You-tube video I'm looking for. It shows Isaac Newton sitting under the apple tree, and proves conclusively that the apple missed him completely when it fell!   :o

It's the video just after the one showing Big Foot getting lost in the Bermuda triangle.
How anyone with a lick of intelligence could watch this silly video and think it's real is beyond me. Just a waste of 2 minutes of my life....

Don't you love it when the credibility of the word conspiracy is further reduced?...

As if someone were interested in making us feel that all conspiracy theories are obviously untrue.  :P

Just remember that, at present, as many Americans would vote for D J Trump as believe that the moon landings were faked.

That would surprising. Those supporting Trump appear to be hard core Republicans who mostly seem to believe in the official stories.

I don't believe that conspiracy believers belong to a given layer of the society for the very reason that there is nothing common among conspiracy theories. Some are most probably false (the faked moon landing, arab terrorists having flown planes in the twin towers in NY,...), some are probably true based on historical evidence (Pearl Harbour having been a set up,...).

It is a very disturbing trend of our supposedely free societies that any story not aligned with what our authorities tell us is seen as being necessarily false and that anyone daring to question those official stories is seen as crazy and ridiculed in the process.

Cheers,
Bernard

Those 2 are obviously untrue.

Don't get me wrong, I fully agree that the guy is a dangerous populist and I am very sad that he is getting such an audience from a lot of people I can only assume are intelligent and well educated.

The only reasonable reading I can make is that those people consider politics in the US to be a big joke anyway and that you might as well extend a bit the air time of the biggest clown of them all. At least Trump isn't trying to give voters the impression they actually have some influence on the course of things.

"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it obviously make a sound?

If a tree falls in a forest and the police wasn't around, does it make a sound?

If a tree falls in a forest and the police is investigating, but the prosecutor decides not to press charges (for insufficient evidence of violating the forest noise ordinance, for instance - the officer did not have a calibrated decibel meter with him at the time), does it make a sound?

If eight trees fall in a forest and someone was around to hear it, do other falling trees in the forest make a sound?

If trees in a a forest in a land, far, far away, fall and plenty were around to hear it and record it, do falling trees on the other side of the land far, far away make a sound? Or our trees are perhaps different species of trees?

Sound, like color is a perceptional property of (in this context, let's stick with) humans.
If a tree falls in the forest, it does produces vibrations that travel through the air. If no one is around to hear it, it doesn't make a sound.
If the tree produces vibrations that travel through the air that are outside human perception, it doesn't produce a sound.
If the sun emits UV light but we can't see it, is it visible? To us, no. None the less, there are the electromagnet wavelengths of UV light emitting from the sun!
What is and what isn't human perception should be the first question defined and specified.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychoacoustics:
Hearing is not a purely mechanical phenomenon of wave propagation, but is also a sensory and perceptual event; in other words, when a person hears something, that something arrives at the ear as a mechanical sound wave traveling through the air, but within the ear it is transformed into neural action potentials.

I guess we could debate or define what intelligent and well educated implies or if polls are scientific metrics.  ;D



https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/07/27/donald-trumps-surge-is-heavily-reliant-on-less-educated-americans-heres-why/:
Trump's support is strongest with Republicans in the Midwest, conservatives across the country who do not have a college degree and (perhaps not surprisingly) those who report the most negative views of immigration and Mexican immigrants in particular, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released last week.


http://www.inquisitr.com/2610326/donald-trump-supporters-mostly-uneducated-new-poll-finds/

“Trump’s support is heavily concentrated among non-college educated Republicans and those who only lean Republican and thus are less inclined to show up and vote in primaries and caucuses,” said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics in an email to the news site.

Polling data reveal that Trump supporters are more likely to be male, white, older, with less education—but they are not more likely to be right-wing.

Half knowledge is often more dangerous than no knowledge.

A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain
And drinking largely sobers us again.
