How did the moon form?
« on: October 19, 2007, 12:44:18 PM »
I was watching a documentary about the four different theories that explain how the moon formed. The most excepted theory today is the impact theory where a Mars size planet impacted our earth X million years ago. Now if what I heard is true, the moon is also drifting away at an average of 3 cm a year. This is caused by the moon orbiting out of Earth's gravitational (to save The Engineer some time) pull. That means in a few 1000 years from now, solar eclipses won't show the diamond ring effect. Now for you FE'ers, primarily Tom, how did the moon form on FE and how would you explain the moon drifting away, if it is?

accepted surely. Yes, also note that it is believed that shortly after formation the moon was a lot closer, causing the land to rise and fall 200 feet.

Oh thank you. In that documentary, one of the theories was that the moon formed from a rapidly spinning earth when it was still a lava ball.

I prefer the "massive impact" theory, it marries up better with planetary formation, and it's more dramatic.

The moon?

Well, before they started guarding the ice wall, the lizard people were bored. So they built the moon out of paper mache.

RE science? You mean as opposed to FE science or something?

The impact theory is the only one I've heard that makes good sense.

So what is the FE theory and the science behind it?, Oh, just for a change a theory with evidence would be nice.

What can be sure is that we wouldn't adopt a theory strictly based on how dramatic it is.

No, you'd pick a theory that ties in to the theory of planetary formation. The fact it is dramatic is just a bonus.

I wonder how many RE theories exist only because they were dramatic enough to get funding? Hrm.

Isnt anyone going to answer? Or are you just gonna let it drift to the bottom of the page like what happens every time someone posts evidence that blows your theory out of the water?

Yes, sorry Dan, Username is taking a comment I made about the RE theory of the moon's formation far too seriously, and is using it to rip this thread off topic.

The fact of the matter is, the large collision fits with the rest of RE planetary formation theory. The RE formed because of hundreds of thousands of impacts from asteroids/planetoids.

So whoever wrote the appropriate research etc wasn't being paid in any sort?  Do you have anything to back this up, or did you just pull it out of your ass?

Do you have any proof of your outlandish claim?
I am only saying this because you are straying from the main point of this topic, how did the moon form in FE?

But I'll answer your question so you won't have an excuse. No they weren't paid. As for the other question, no I don't have anything to back it up, but sure as hell it didn't come out of my ass. It is no more than a theory.

So theories are made by people not getting paid?

I think the funding of these crazy biased and mostly unsupported theories are at the very core of the issue, not to mention the lack of any funding for FE theories.

Yes, they aren't paid. I made a theory saying people who make theories aren't payed. I haven't been paid so I can say that my theory is true until then.

How exactly is the impact theory, let alone the three moon formation theories before it, are "crazy biased" or "unsupported"?

Yes, they aren't paid.

If you say so.  ::)

I know when people research papers or publish papers they are either being paid via grant money, through the institution they work with, or via some other measure (a degree perhaps.)  However, I guess in the RE they are just doing it out of the goodness of their hearts.

Actually it makes a lot of sense. It explains the makeup of our planet, and of the moon.

Where as FE hasn't explained their model of the earth, moon, or sun.

All comes down to funding.  We simply don't have the man hours and backing the RE does and some areas of our theory will suffer until the world sees the truth.
