Why moon is not geologically active?? sir please send me answer

With the present knowledge about moon, we cannot say for certain that "geologically" moon is inactive.

(1) in absence of atmosphere on Moon, we should not expect morphological changes that we find over earth nor we are likely to find physico-chemical alterations/weathering phenomenon as we find over earth.

(2) we cannot say anything as yet about the endogenous process like seismicity, plate tectonic model like, magma, volcanoes or "geothermal" situations.
I think for Moon we have to use a corresponding term instead of "Geo".
