No, Virginia, there is no Man in the Moon.

Now, don’t cry.  I know Daddy said there was -- but he fibbed. 

It’s the Moon Goddess who’s in the moon.  But since your Daddy YAJ* has a chip on his shoulder about goddesses (including the moon one), he’s tried hard to stuff them all under a pillow. 

But YAJ is a bunch of fluff butter.  He doesn’t know beans from banjos.  In actuality ... 
“... All the world over, it’s goddesses, not gods, who are linked to the moon.  It’s easy to see why: as if by magic, women shed blood in time with the moon’s cycles – and still live to tell the tale. This link between goddesses and the moon seems to be an old one, with moon goddesses apparently going back to the Palaeolithic.  Just one example is the Venus of Laussel, a 20,000-year-old goddess figurine holding a crescent moon in her right hand.”** 
* “Daddy YAJ” is Yahweh/Allah/Jehovah, the god of Abraham.  Muslims, Christians and practicing Jews try to spin the yarn that YAJ is three different deities, but he’s not.  He’s just one god who loves war, and hates women, animals and the earth.
