  • All of this has happened before, and all of this will happen again.

I'm not a big major in physics, but is it possible that if the moon became too over colonized it would lose its gravitational pull and get closer to the earth (like in the movie adaptation of The Time Machine?).  I really am not sure.

  • Do you really want to be decieved by your stupidity?

wouldn't colonization make it have more mass and in turn increasing the gravity?

My goodness, how much *stuff* do you think we could manage to take to the moon anyway? It's not likely colonization would change the moon's mass any more than the proverbial drop in the ocean.

Why would we be taking lots of stuff there anyway? Why not make the colonies out of stuff that is already there?

corrected typo. Unfortunately the typo is still visible in the quote below. D'oh!

Exactly, and consider how expensive it would be to get stuff there anyway!
