It can not happen because of the gravity of Earth .

Gravity being shabby .. Bye Bye tides .. I dont even want to know what would happen.

We all freeze to death. Very quickly . The huge rock that is Earth servive . Life in the no.

Yes , the Earth survives . But lunar scientists and reseachers not survive .

no waves in the oceans ... no lunar eclipses and solar beings ... intrupted lunar calendar and destroyed becuase it depends on the shape of the moon whether or cresent dark ! around the Earth will survive or not .... it will, but I'm not sure if the waves creates an effect or not, but nothing that was under its gravity will be released ! so it must be a disaster will happen ...

We would need a new flashlight .

That would mean that the law of gravity no longer worked and would leave Earth orbit the sun . And we leave the surface of the Earth . That would not be good.

We would stay in essentially the same orbit around the sun and gravity on the surface of the earth would still normal .
Solar tides would be only about 1 /2 to 1/3 of what we have now . ( Only Lunar tidal range is approximately twice the solar tide -only) . This change would cause a significant adjustment to the cost of living and , possibly, birds traveling extensively throughout the waters of the ocean, but it would be a disaster to the land -dwellers . Loss of night lighting nocturnal animals affect anything, but do so without the light of the moon for several days a month as it is. In short , not a great threat.

Yes earth would survive, however function profoundly differently, just imagine, the wolves would not howl, the owls would not be easily capable of hunting, there would be no more ocean tides, and the water would stagnate, yes life could survive but it would not be as pleasant.

It depends on if the moon hits the earth while leaving orbit.

We would have lesser tides, only the sun would have an effect on the ocean.
It would be dark at night.
There would be no more eclipses; either solar or lunar.
There would be no romantic moments looking at the moon.
We could no longer rely on occultations by the moon of celestial objects to determine position and or size / shape such as for asteroids.
Many insects would have a hard time, as they fly towards the moon.

Earth would survive, but things would drastically change. The tides would be no more, weather would change, and the nights would seem really lonely without out friend the moon looking over our shoulders.
#15FrancesAnswered at 2013-10-21 13:19:42
all the nights would be dark

underworld would be a ****.....

yes the earth would survive but the night will be dark.

There would finally be an end to all the werewolves.

im not sure about this but i heard some where (maybe on NOVA) that the moon attracts a certain percent of debris that falls to earth
