Removing the moon would cause us no - end of trouble.
Tides would be reduced dramatically reduced as the pull of the moon and the sun both create tides, however without the moon the tides would be negligible.
Many animals use the moon for synchronisation such as mating / spawning, and of course there would be a mass extinction of werewolves!!

Interesting meditation info, I personally need to work on meditating myself, it is something most americans never do, when they relax they program themselves by watching commercials, resulting in no peace of mind.....

I had a similar thought not long ago, difference was I ask if or when the moon becomes a vast quarry of mines, and minerals start being removed for whatever purpose, then the density of the moon will change, this would surely effect the moons gravity eventually, so what would be the effects?
I don't think these scenarios have been carefully thought through by TPTB, or maybe it has and they don't care.
We would be in very serious trouble. Apart from missing something beautiful, we would have no tides. The tide cycles are important for the sustaining of various kinds of life along earth's shores, and I'm sure we'd learn of things affected by the moon that we don't even know about currently. Even worse, the moon has helped to regulate and stabilize earth's rotation on its axis. In the long term, earth's tilt would go haywire, due to tugs and pulls by the sun and the other planets. The seasons as we know them would shift and change with disastrous results. At some point, earth's axis may even become close to coplanar with the ecliptic-- the poles would point directly toward the sun a couple of times per year. Let's hope the moon continues as it is for a very long time. As it is, it is very slowly moving away from earth. This movement is no threat to us for a very, very long time-- but that is bad enough.
The moon's gravity affects both the earth's path through space and the earth's shape. If the moon were to disappear, the earth's path would change but probably not enough to cause a noticeable difference. The earth and the moon normally orbit one another but the moon, which has much less mass than the earth, does most of the moving. Without the moon, the earth would just orbit smoothly around the sun. As for the earth's shape, the only part of the earth that responds noticeably to the moon's gravity is the water on its surface. The tides are caused mostly by the moon's gravity. Without the moon, the tides would be much smaller and caused only by the sun's gravity. Thus, in the long run, you would probably have trouble telling that the moon was gone without looking overhead--the earth's path wouldn't change much and you would have to look carefully to see the effect on the earth's oceans.
However, in the moments following the moon's disappearance, there might be some dramatic waves and a few stress-related earthquakes. The oceans and the earth's crust do experience substantial stresses due to the unevenness of the moon's gravity (it's stronger on the side of the earth nearest the moon than it is on the side of the earth farthest from the moon). But I doubt that the sudden change in stress caused by having the moon disappear would do more than temporarily flood a few coastal cities. One last effect worth noting is that the precession of the equinoxes, a 26,000 year process that shifts the earth's rotational axis in space and causes the stars that are overhead at night during a particular season to change gradually, is driven by the moon's gravity and would disappear if the moon were to disappear.

Hah the only thing it would ruin is the Saiyan race!
But on a more serious note I had a dream a week or two ago of my house being destroyed in a flood, and the sky was dark... I wouldn't say no moon because I could still see, but it was unusually dark. When did yours occur?

I did read a report that the Moon wasn’t always there, and that it was elsewhere in the Universe and brought near to Earth to help stabilise our planet, so you could be viewing past history. I’m sure that some other ATS members will laugh about this though.
The Mayan cycles were a bit more complex, such that every day in a 52 year period had a unique name from a combination of various different cycles (similar to the idea that there is a Monday 1st January only every 7 years or so). This 52 year cycle has is called a Calendar Round.
The name for a Mayan epoch apparently translates as 13 bactuns, which you can see is 13*144000 days or 5125.26 years (roughly). There is actually some minor disagreement over when the current Mayan long cycle started, but it was probably either August 11th or 13th 3114 BC, which means it comes to an end on either Dec 21st or 23rd 2012.

Where did you report it, can you let me know your views on the moon not being there? brought to earth as a fail safe or to help us? Iam going with the fact that it will be removed in order to transcend our race via mass destruction of the human body.
Only Earth men are warlike at as the present time. The inhabitants of the other planets, although they have warred in the distant past, are now all peaceable.
Earth, the punishment planet, is the odd one out and, for the student’s interest, here is a list of all the inhabited planets in the entire universe: Yolland Allicay, Fos, Sol, Coul, Bos, Tet, Earth, Moon.
Yollond Allicay, known as the reward planet, is in the same solar system as Fos. Sol and Coul are in a different solar system in another galaxy. Bos and Tet are in a third solar system in a further galaxy. Earth is the only human-inhabited planet in its solar system and its galaxy.
The Moon is a unique case. Some of the evidence brought back to Earth by the spacemen sent to investigate it has been deliberately suppressed by governments because they found out that there were men already there.
The Moon is inhabited on the inside by about 200 men. There is a man-made covering around the moon which is several kilometres deep in order to protect the inhabitants from meteoric bombardment. It was guided to its present position about ten thousand years ago.
The Moon is a small planet which has been enlarged and built upon by people originating from Yolland Allicay. They built a spaceship and travelled to this small planet which was orbiting another planet in the region of Yolland Allicay. A protective shield, approximately seven kilometres deep, was built around the planet, fully encasing it. The casing consisted largely of titanium and took many generations of people to build. Their supplies were drawn partly from this new planet and partly from Yolland Allicay, the inhabitants of which were very highly developed in their technology and, by applying their skills in this field, discovered that there were other inhabited planets.
The Moon men are tall and very pale faced. As they live right inside the moon, they are constantly in artificial light. Their eyes take on a pinkish hue because of their unnatural lighting conditions. Their spaceships are kept inside the moon. The Moon men are not at all hostile but can defend themselves with formidable force should they be provoked first.
