In this image taken from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, you can see the PLSS part of the two astronauts' spacesuits left behind by Apollo 17:
On Earth, vibrations from quakes usually die away in only half a minute. The reason has to do with chemical weathering, Neal explains: "Water weakens stone, expanding the structure of different minerals. When energy propagates across such a compressible structure, it acts like a foam sponge--it deadens the vibrations." Even the biggest earthquakes stop shaking in less than 2 minutes.
The moon, however, is dry, cool and mostly rigid, like a chunk of stone or iron. So moonquakes set it vibrating like a tuning fork. Even if a moonquake isn't intense, "it just keeps going and going," Neal says. And for a lunar habitat, that persistence could be more significant than a moonquake's magnitude.

I saw all the videos and read all the articles about the Earth's moon being an artificial construct. However I just read a new fact that I never heard before and here it is:
All of the moon's craters have the same range of depth.
To me this screams artificial more than anything else. I mean how can this be if there isn't some kind of unnatural wall or barrier beneath the surface. There's a reason why we haven't been back for over 50 years and all these facts add up. Also look up the moon hologram videos where the surface of the moon has to resynch like the picture on a tv sometimes does. There's definitely something going on. Else why haven't we went something like the Mars Curiosity up there to start drilling? I mean it rings like a bell right? Let's find out why.

I remember when I was in primary school and my teacher explaining that he thought the moon could be artificial, as the U.S had fired a rocket at it and it resonated a ringing sound. I was amazed by this and it has always stuck with me. This must have been around 1979/80, so they must have been firing rockets at the moon to ensure it was solid and they were able to make a landing there.
I couldn't find anything about the craters being the same depth, but the biggest crater is about 5km deep, although most are between 1.2 - 2km.
The compiler has followed a line along the lunar terminator and cut off what would otherwise be a jagged edge from the different images used.

We can also look at native American oral history where they discuss the fact there was a point in time where the moon was not present.
Just because someone looks cool in eagle feathers doesn't mean they aren't talking crap.
Creation myths are just that, myths, and "a time before the moon" is as nice a way as any of saying 'like, ages ago'.
funny 'cause the a priori assumptions in that statement make the conclusion ironic
occams razor says the ancients were telling it like it is

I like the idea of slope adjustment. What mathematical modelling has been don't on this?, please provide the link I would like to read it.

For the love of all that is holy. Sound doesn't travel in space, therefore the moon could not possibly ring!!!!!!!
