What is the motivation behind people who believe the moon landing was a hoax?

Never mind about debunking them. What motivates them to spread this idea in the first place?

    Attention. All they want is for the rest of the world to give them some attention for their outlandish claims.

    It's said that people who believe lots of conspiracy theories also believe that there's one big problem responsible for everything that's wrong and one solution.

    Angry people like to go around untying the shoelaces of society - raising hoax claims, challenging existing knowledge, trying to create doubt and chaos in place of order. It's a kind of cultural or intellectual vandalism.

    They were oblivious to the technological advancements that were being made at the time and didn't believe it was possible. They likely don't even understand physics and how airplanes fly or ships float. The non-believers likely also think the Mars rover is a hoax as well.

    When one group holds all the information with no corroborating evidence questions can arise. Once you look deeper you have more questions. The only people who can answer the question are associated with the event. So it becomes a circle with no provable answer. Proof requires a second source in most cases as its just hearsay when one person on blamed another with no other witnesses. The moon is inaccessible to most so the scene of the event can not be corroborated independently.

    They're sheep, the same ones who want to believe 9/11 was a hoax, that the Earth is flat and that it's only 6000 years old.
