If it's a spaceship, the steering is fucked.

I've heard this "the moon is an artificial space ship" claim before. However, what nobody ever seems to be able to explain adequately is why aliens would go to the trouble to build a spaceship that's 1/6th the size of earth and make it look like a natural celestial body, bring it across the galaxy, and put it in orbit around Earth. Especially when other planets have natural moons, too.

Poe. It has to be. I mean, just look at it.

A spaceship with dirt on it?! Oh, stupid me...

I made it to the second sentence before projectile snotting my soda across the room. Then I laughed until my boss came over to see if I was okay. Now he's the one spraying coffee and giggling like a maniac.

Yes, it's a spaceship made of solid rock, covered with an outer shell of more rocks, as well as some pulverized rock.
And just why would aliens put the moon there, anyway?

I've read this book.

@Thomas- it's so the antispirals can monitor our development. You know they fear us destroying all existence with our spiral energy.
I mean, if you're going to be as divorced from reality as to think the moon is a spaceship, you might as well replace it with over the top awesome.

Gurren Lagan is not a documentary.

Damn it! Flah beat me to it.
Well played, Flah. Well played.
Now I feel like watching Gurren Lagann.

So many people made the gurren lagann reference before me, sad that I wasn't first but happy I'm not the only one. If the anti-spiral is watching earth he's doing a terrible job, though.

Because Death Star, that's why.

Wouldn't it be easier for alien invaders to just bring a small fleet of ships and fire a bunch of nukes from orbit? What's the point of wasting a perfectly good Deathstar on a planet like this and making it sit there for billions of years doing nothing?

Three awards for you:
-You fail astronomy forever
-You fail logic forever
(go ask Doubting Thomas)
-You fail physic forever
(well, planets and satellites are created by condensation of matter; gravity is the cause for the relation planet-satellite. High school program
(yes, I know that these tropes have changed their names but these names were more relevent for realanswers's case)

If the Moon is a spaceship, I'm totally gonna steal it and ram it into the Earth to put us all out of our misery.

Yes, because its's just SOOO logical to think that the moon is a giant spaceship. I mean, it's just so fucking obvious right?

Oh man, this is gold.
