Exposure to the Moon is known to cause tissue damage, especially to the eyes and brain in humans, which can result in blindness, mental perturbation or even death.
Did you dream that up or do you have any evidence for this claim? Can you even provide even one example where a person's death was scientifically linked to "exposure to the moon"?

Have you no shame, sir? Have you no shame?

Erratum: the word "shame" in the above quote should in fact read "brain".
If the ultimate objective is to kill Skeleton, we should just do that next.

Since we're on the topic can anyone explain why the moon is smaller when it's higher up?

According to round earthers its because of the contrast with the landscape it.. just appears bigger when it's nearer buildings.

But I looked out the window just now and saw the moon against a pitch black sky and it is definitely smaller than yeasterday (when it was lower down)

So is there a good flat earth explanation of this?

Bendy light
Optical illusion
The bugs on the surface of the moon are moving
A wizard did it

Edit: forgot the conspiracy did it

Can you people not read? See:

This thread is a public health warning - it is not for debate. Please debate the effects of the Moon elsewhere!

James, this thread may need to be locked in order for people to get the hint.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

Locked- this thread is a warning for all to heed, not a discussion topic.
If you want to debate please feel free to open a separate thread.
so in a sense we humans are all fish, and we are all lizards, and we are all rats, and we are all primates, and we are all orangutans.

I am bumping and re-stickying this thread, as it has been brought to my attention that another Supermoon crisis will occur this weekend:


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/03/supermoon-meteor-shower-may-5_n_1473687.html


James' OP provides very valuable advice on how to ensure one's safety during this event. My thanks go to Space Cowgirl for highlighting this - I must confess I was not aware of it.

I recommed the use of Twitter.com to proliferate the dangers associated with the Moon.  I have personally challenged National Geographic's brazen Twitter assertion that the Moon is "Not a Threat to the Earth" - https://twitter.com/#!/Flat_Science/status/198244428136185856

It is vital that the public is duly informed of the dangers posed by recklessly wandering around in open Moonlight, especially when its sinister power is at such a high level as this weekend.

I have already done so, but I will also retweet the above message via @FlatEarthToday. We have a moral obligation to try and prevent harm during this event.

What about the previous 8 super moons since September 2010 (including the one last month)?  Everyone seems to have survived those crises without too much drama. 

Any who, here is a list of upcoming super moons for the next few years so that you can mark your calendars:

I get a good sun burn about once a year and have survived them all.  This must mean that the sun cannot cause skin cancer. 

People can get a sun burn, smoke a cigarette, or drink a drink and survive them all.  This does not mean that an excess of any of these is perfectly healthy.
