    one is that seismic experiments have suggested that the moon is Hollow!!!

    is this true

    Well not Hollow, but it might have a LOT of ice in there.

    another abnomaly

    is that the moon gives evidence that it is much older than Earth

    No.

    No it doesn't.

    If you're going to post ridiculous claims at least provide a link in an attempt to support them.

    The moon is actually filled with marshmallow filling, like these moonpies are. Moonpies are created from facts gathered by people who studied the moon and its characteristics.

    If the collision theory on the formation of the Earth and the moon is correct, the lighter elements (including water vapor) are largely what make up the moon, being the lighter body. It is one explanation also, for the large amount of heavy elements on our planet compared to our size.

    Existence and age of Moon rocks

    A total of 382 kilograms (842 lb) of Moon rocks and dust were collected during the Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17 missions.[1] Some 10 kg (22 lb) of the Moon rocks have been destroyed during hundreds of experiments performed by both NASA researchers and planetary scientists at research institutions unaffiliated with NASA. These experiments have confirmed the age and origin of the rocks as lunar, and were used to identify lunar meteorites collected later from Antarctica.[2] The oldest Moon rocks are up to 4.5 billion years old,[1] making them 200 million years older than the oldest Earth rocks, which are from the Hadean eon and dated 3.8 to 4.3 billion years ago. The rocks returned by Apollo are very close in composition to the samples returned by the independent Soviet Luna programme.[3] A rock brought back by Apollo 17 was accurately dated to be 4.417 billion years old, with a margin of error of plus or minus 6 million years. The test was done by a group of researchers headed by Alexander Nemchin at Curtin University of Technology in Bentley, Australia.

    Bull shit. But as usual, I mean that in the nicest possible way.

    Please please please at least try and be coherent. You mean "the moon has anomalies," or "the moon is abnormal." There's no excuse for poor spelling these days since there is a real time spell checker in every word processor, web browser and cheese sandwich made.

    PS, you also have no hope on the actual content front either.

    No he is correct the moon rocks found ARE in fact older than almost any rocks found on earth. The moon does not display much plate techtonics or shifting of it's crust and in fact constant bombardments makes it easy to find very old rock indeed.

    What the mistake is - on earth the rock is constantly shifted/melted made anew and that's why we don't have as much "old" rock....not because the moon is "older".

    And that's from... where?

    Regardless, please READ what you've quoted: The oldest Moon rocks are up to 4.5 billion years old,[1] making them 200 million years older than the oldest Earth rocks.

    All this states is that there are rocks in existence on the Moon that are older than any rocks we've found on Earth so far. NOT that the Moon is older than the Earth.

    Rocks on Earth are subject to erosion from many sources, those on the Moon not so much.
    All your quote means is that some rocks on the Moon have survived longer than individual rocks on Earth. Why do you find this "abnomalous"? (And why can't you use a dictionary?)

    Because we have taken seismograph readings and we know it's not hollow. Like the Earth it has a solid iron core and a liquid outer core, with a solid crust. There are many minor differences - but neither one is hollow.

    10. Moon Echoes: On November 20, 1969, the Apollo 12 crew jettisoned the lunar module ascent stage causing it to crash onto the moon. The LM’s impact (about 40 miles from the Apollo 12 landing site) created an artificial moonquake with startling characteristics—the moon reverberated like a bell for more than an hour.



    This phenomenon was repeated with Apollo 13 (intentionally commanding the third stage to impact the moon), with even more startling results. Seismic instruments recorded that the reverberations lasted for three hours and twenty minutes and traveled to a depth of twenty-five miles, leading to the conclusion that the moon has an unusually light—or even no—core.

    And once again you provide no link.
    Are you deliberately being evasive?

    You have just posted a quote from the article "Strange Moon Facts" by Ronald Regehr, who calls himself the "Alien Chaser." It was published in UFO Magazine.

    Needless to say, perhaps a better source is in order.
