Is there life on that side of the moon?
I believe so.
I'm not saying that it's not possible that there's life on the far side of the moon. It is, after all, a natural staging area for any race that
might be doing research on Earth - close and hidden. I have seen articles and photos claiming to be of structures on the far side of the moon, but
with the exception of two, I wasn't able to really see anything besides craters and dust (admittedly, the photos were quite blurry, so seeing what
they were talking about was difficult at best).
It is said that when a satellite hit the moon they were shocked at how the sound resonated throughout the moon as if it were hollow.
I haven't heard anything about this. Would you mind naming a source? I've been interested in space travel and the moon since I was a child, and
like to think I keep reasonably up to date regarding reliable, published facts on these subjects. I still haven't heard of this.
It is also said that there is much activity around the moon's craters. I have read this from different sources.
I've seen the alledged transcripts of the Apollo flight as well as interviews with Armstrong regarding this. I'm still a little on the fence about
it, though. Certainly not impossible, but not containing enough proof for me to firmly believe it either.
The moon is one billion years older than the Earth
This is not hard fact. Fact is, we can't prove it.
An interesting feature of these ancient rocks is that they are not from any sort of "primordial crust" but are lava flows and sediments
deposited in shallow water, an indication that Earth history began well before these rocks were deposited. In Western Australia, single zircon
crystals found in younger sedimentary rocks have radiometric ages of as much as 4.3 billion years, making these tiny crystals the oldest materials to
be found on Earth so far. The source rocks for these zircon crystals have not yet been found. The ages measured for Earth's oldest rocks and oldest
crystals show that the Earth is at least 4.3 billion years in age but do not reveal the exact age of Earth's formation.
The Moon is a more primitive planet than Earth because it has not been disturbed by plate tectonics; thus, some of its more ancient rocks are more
plentiful. Only a small number of rocks were returned to Earth by the six Apollo and three Luna missions. These rocks vary greatly in age, a
reflection of their different ages of formation and their subsequent histories. The oldest dated moon rocks, however, have ages between 4.4 and 4.5
billion years and provide a minimum age for the formation of our nearest planetary neighbor.
According to data collected by the US Geological Survey, the Earth and Moon were created at roughly the same time. The USGS also states that this is,
in part, based on specualtion and educated guesses.
It was seen by astronauts of yesterday as a spaceship to study and visit the Earth. This may be true.
Once again, this is based on speculation with no hard fact to back it up. Fact is, when we first visited the moon, we had little knowledge of what to
expect, except for the tiny bit of data collected from unmanned missions to the moon, and observation from terrestrial observatories.
Most critics have a arguement simply based on disbeleif but have no substance on which they can say it isn't.
And most believers have arguments based on speculation, but have no substance on which to say it's true.
Actually it makes sense that the moon is a spaceship. Where does the U.F.Os on Earth come from so frequently? Maybe the moon actually is a
hollow planetoid. After all, aliens were intelligent enough to bring a dead rock to life we call Earth but can't bring a moon halfway
This is all speculation again. In order to believe this, one must assume that aliens are actually visiting us (which, I believe that they are, but
with no fact to back it up, it's just speculation, and therefore cannot be proven). One must also assume that it was an alien race that created life
on this planet, and there is no proof to support or debunk that theory either.
I'm sorry for playing the skeptic in all of this, because I'd really like to believe that something like this really exists. However, it irks me to
no end when people speculate on the possibilities and state it as hard fact. Everything that is discussed in here is based on speculation. The hard
fact will come when the aliens are giving humans joy rides in their spacecraft, and advertizing for this on TV. When I can go down the street to
"Crazy Xynquatyl's Alien Electronics" and buy an interplanetary radio and a ray gun from a Gray, then I'll believe without a doubt.
Until then, call me a skeptic who really wants to be able to believe.
