I suppose I'm a moron but that went completely over my head. What theory?
Why do you think aliens would want or need to hide?
Keep in mind that the moon has no real atmosphere, aliens could have come here any time in the last several billion years and left a mark. Humans have only been around for like 100,000 years.
In other words, artifacts could have been left behind long before we even existed and the moon, because it has no weather, could perfectly preserve them.
It makes sense to look doesn't it? If nothing else than to say, 'we looked and there are no alien artifacts larger than XYZ size on the moon'
Well said Jim.
We're probably less than 30 years from 'first contact' and all this UFO / Aliens on the Moon / Pareidolia Rocks on Mars stuff just undermines the real search for life and intelligence in the universe. Kudos to you for pointing that out.
This is exactly what Jim was referring to when he said that shows like this simply confuse the public about the REAL search for life in the universe.

For more info, here is a photograph I just took of my copy of "The moon as viewed by lunar orbiter" (1970), which has that boulder trail in it. Moonquakes is their preferred explanation
