The Earth would have been a much more chaotic place for life, especially advanced life, to develop if it wasn’t for the Moon. But do we really know all about it?
The best theory of the Moon’s formation is a catastrophic collision of two space bodies at just the right angle to form this belt of debris that then formed the Moon. The Sun’s diameter is 400 times greater than the Moon and coincidentally the Sun also happens to be nearly precisely 400 times further away.
This is the reason that the Sun and the Moon appear the same size in the Earth’s sky and why we on Earth can experience eclipses of the Sun. And the chances of that occurring are, literally, astronomically small.
It stabilizes the Earth’s tilt relative to its orbit. It leads to tides, which helped life transition from living in the ocean to living on land. The moon has a precise altitude, course and speed, allowing it to “function” properly in regards of planet Earth. But how? Is it just pure coincidence?
In order to have a solar eclipse the Moon has to be exactly the size that it is, which is 2,160 miles. Not 2,161, not 2,159, but 2,160 miles at its equator.
Throughout our observable galaxy, this relationship and others have not been duplicated. Other moons are sizably smaller by comparison to their mother planet.
Earth’s satellite not only orbits closer than it should for its size, it is also the only moon in the solar system that has a near-perfect circular orbit. And no other lunar bodies are known to have such a stabilizing role as the Moon has with the Earth.
The surface of the Moon is scarred with tens of thousands of impact craters of various sizes. Scientists suggest this is due to the fact that there has never been an atmosphere on the Moon to help protect it from bombardment by space debris.
Even though some of them are very large and some of them are very small, they all seem to have the same depth, and that really shouldn’t happen on a planetary body. There should be variation in depth.
Does the uniform depth of the craters on the Moon suggest some sort of metallic barrier underneath moon rock and dust?
During their ascent back to the command module, Commander Charles Conrad Jr. and lunar module pilot Alan Bean release the Apollo 12 launch vehicle and crash it back to the Moon.
Upon impact, something very unexpected happened. The Moon was said to have seismically reverberated like a bell for more than an hour.
According to Ken Johnson, supervisor of the data and photo control department, the Moon not only rang like a bell but the whole Moon “wobbled” in such a precise way that it was “almost as though it had gigantic hydraulic damper struts inside it.
In the 70’s, after years of studying findings from various Moon missions, two government scientists, Michael Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, publish an article in Sputnik magazine revealing their shocking conclusion about the nature of the Moon. Their theory is that the Moon is likely a creation of alien intelligence that was brought to Earth in the remote past.
NASA scientists had determined that moondust primarily consisted of chromium, titanium and zirconium.
In their publication, Vasin and Shcherbakov noted, “If a material had to be devised to protect “a giant artificial satellite from the unfavorable effects “of temperature from cosmic radiation and meteorite bombardment, “the experts would probably have hit on precisely these elements.
Ancient accounts speak of a time before the celestial object even existed.
Beginning in the 5th century BC, Roman and Greek authors wrote of a time “before there was a moon in the heavens.” Allusions to this can also be found in the Hebrew Bible. And there are Zulu legends that say the Moon was brought to Earth hundreds of generations ago.
Wowane and Mpanku were the names of two Zulu deities from prehistory. The Zulus have a legend that it was they who brought the Moon into existence.
They supposedly did so by stealing an egg from a giant sky dragon, hollowing out the center, the yolk of the egg, and then rolling the resultant planet across the sky to become the Moon. And the reason that the Zulus say the Moon was put there was to keep an eye on human beings.
Clear enough? 🙂
