I can zoom in so close to my house I can see my car, yet I am not allowed to see up close on the moon? The fact that they could show us every inch of the moon, but intentionally do not highlights the fact that we are NOT being told exactly whats going on on the moon.
Now I think this is important because it doesn't matter what side of the debate you prefer, the fact that we aren't shown a thing is proof of a conspiracy.
So for all those who feel that NASA is an upfront, angelic organization out there for the betterment of space travel... your wrong.

Er, right. The close-ups on google earth that you speak of are taken by low-flying aircraft, not satellites.

Though perhaps not the "indebatable proof" it is presented as, this does indeed arouse suspicion. After all the times we have been told man has landed on, orbited, explored or otherwise travelled to/near to the moon, they should be able to photograph all the moon's surface like Google Earth. That they can't suggests that a) they never went, or b) there's something there that they don't want us to see.
If a) is correct, this could cause a big problem if we see a meteor coming towards Earth and there's time to stop it, like in Armageddon. Everyone will be like, "Hey NASA, are you gonna go up there and nuke it or what?" and they'll be in a VERY awkward position if they don't actually have the technology to actually go up there in reality. Then they'll either have to admit that to the public (unlikely), or tell more lies about why they won't save humanity. And if they do the latter, you can bet people will find massive flaws in the story, and the only reason it won't matter that much is cos we'll all be dead.
If b) is correct, God only knows what they're hiding from us.

Google moon is an absolute joke! They show only a tiny section and its obviously full of artifacts and buildings otherwise we would all be able to search it like we can Google Earth. Good point OP

Well, the Chinese just mapped the moon, (or so they claim). Perhaps they'll share their images. As far as artifacts on the moon are concerned, the evidence is shaky at best. IMHO, there's very little to be impressed with.
I'm not saying that there aren't interesting pictures flying about the internet but they are proof of nothing more than suspicion and imagination at this point in time. There's nothing solid to suggest a moon cover-up at all beyond those points.
John Lear hasn't done the cause any favors either... IMHO, he has a really bad case of paraedolia combined with far fetched claims such as spirit catchers and the like.
There will never be enough evidence to satisfy some people that the moon is just a chunk of rocks - but then again, we're discussing this on a conspiracy forum so it's par for the course.

I asked John Lear about the SELENE project and the answer isn't surprising, everything is controlled by NASA and the images that JAXA releases to the public are fake, he said "plastic models".
