(Before we present our proof, we must, of necessity, examine the standard lies and logical games, repeated and rehashed ad nauseam by the Astronomically Correct establishment, and how they are used to silence opposition over the question of the moon)What evidence do we have that there really is a moon?

You can see it.

But don’t all qualified scientists and astronomers agree that there is a moon?
