What makes the moon spin? Where does it come from? How did it start spinning?

There is a lot of information about the moon in your favorite encyclopedia. Then, if there's something you don't understand, you can come back here.

Also, ask yourself what your own theory might be. Why do you think the moon spins? Where do you do think it might have come from? How might it have started spinning? And finally... are these questions related to each other in some way?
