In reality, the moon is only a hologram.
Of course the technology of the Moon Hoax has changed with the times. In the 1800's, the moon was actually a hot air balloon of sorts. During the renaissance it was a large oil painting hung on a very tall pole clevery disguised to blend into the skyline. The earlier you go, the cruder the methods become... with some of the very earliest 'moons' being as poor as a medium sized rock, roughly spherical in shape, tied by a rope of sorts to a high branch in a tree, but people were even earier to fool in those days and didn't ask too many questions. Now, however, the technology is much more sophisticated and a great deal of complex 'explanations' as to the 'reasons' for all of the inaccuracies of 'Lunar Existance Theory' are expounded by members of the aforemention conspiracy group.
"I don't know about you baby, but all i see is a hologram!"
Guy 2: That won't work out, she won't ever go out with him
Guy 1: Yeah, he's trying to grab the moon.
