Scientifically speaking, what would happen if the moon just randomly disappeared?

Other than nights being darker and seas being calmer, would it effect our lives at all?

Or would it cause the end of life on Earth?

All we can do is to try on a model and see .

    The level of ionising radiation reaching the surface of the planet would gradually climb as the magnetic field broke down, and some animals would lose the ability to find their way around.

    I can theorize that nothing would change and it would be just as valid as your supposition.
