Earth’s Moon: a Perfect artificial construction too good to be true

According to a more recent theory, the Moon was created from the leftover space debris from the creation of the Earth. This concept proved unsustainable in the light of the current theory of gravity, indicating that a large object collects all loose material, leaving none for the formation of another large body. It is generally accepted that the moon originated elsewhere and entered the gravitational field of the Earth at some point in the distant past.


None of the suggested theories are especially compelling because of the lack of evidence that neither Earth nor the Moon appears to have been physically altered by a close encounter that occurred in the distant past. No debris in space indicate a collision in the past, yet it seems that the Earth and Moon were developed during the same period.

As for the theories suggested that Earth “naturally captured” the Moon, Isaac Asimov states: “The Moon is too big to have been captured by the Earth. The chances of such a capture, after which the moon adopted a nearly circular orbit around the Earth are too small to make such an eventuality credible.”

Asimov was right to consider the orbit of the Moon – not only is it almost a perfect circle, but it also is stationary, one side is always faced towards Earth with only the slightest variation. For all we know, it is the only natural satellite with such an orbit.

This circular orbit is one of the strangest things when it comes to the moon considering that the center of mass of the Moon is over a mile closer to Earth than its geometric center. This fact alone should produce an unstable, wobbly orbit, as well as an off-center mass. Interestingly, almost all other satellites in our solar system orbit in the Ecuador plane of its planet.

The Moon’s orbit is strangely closer to the Earth’s orbit around the sun, inclined to the ecliptic of the Earth for more than five degrees.


If it is just a coincidence that the moon has a precise and stationary orbit around our planet, is it also a coincidence that the Moon is at the right distance from Earth to completely cover the sun during an eclipse?

Asimov explains: “There is no astronomical reason why the moon and the sun should fit so well. It’s the purest of coincidences, and only the Earth among all the planets is blessed in this way.”Earth-Moon-Incline

It seems impossible that a rarity of this type would naturally fall into a circular orbit so precisely. It is a fascinating enigma well articulated by science writer William Roy Shelton, who wrote: “It is important to remember that something had to put the moon in or near its current circular pattern around the Earth. Smiley put, it is very unlikely that any object just stumbles on the right combination of factors needed to help an object stay in orbit. ‘Something “had to put the moon on its altitude, on its course and speed. The question is: what was that “something”?

In July 1970, two Russian scientists Mijail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, published an article in the Soviet magazine Sputnik entitled “Is the Moon a creation of extraterrestrial intelligence?” They advanced the theory that the moon is not an entirely natural object, but a planetoid that was excavated eons ago in the depths of space by intelligent beings with a technology superior to ours.

  1. I always thought Asimov was being cautious, careful to not say more than mainstream scientists should say, lest he harm his professional reputation. But Asimov was smart and even when discussing facts & data, he was surely aware of the implications of them. So I think he simply put those facts & data out there and allowed the readers to see their implications and form their conclusions on their own. He was professionally a scientist, but he was also a science fiction writer par excellence! He must have done right, because his reputation still stands.

  2. Thank you for sharing more evidence to the world that the universe was created by God. I would also like to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the Free Gift of Salvation. It is comforting to know that the Bible is 100 percent accurate on everything, and that even secular science continues to prove the Bible is infallible. May the Lord bless you with His gifts. Thank you Jesus! Thank you Lord. Praise the Holy Name of Jesus!

    1. Close but not exactly right. The moon was created. But by our alien visitor forefathers who also left just enough DNA on their giant petri dish called Earth to evolve into human beings for them to study over thousands of years and eventually farm as an energy source. Get your mythology right. ALL HAIL THE LITTLE GREEN SKY MASTERS!!! (soylent green is people)

    2. really? it wasnt god as you know him it might have bean an alean who called himself god, and the bible isint always 100 percent right in fact iit is mmost often wrong about 90 percent of the time.

  3. Remember, the moon used to be much closer to Earth and is slowly moving away. It just happens that we live in the time when the moon “fits” the sun during an eclipse.

  4. combination of factors needed to help an object stay in orbit. ‘Something “had to put the moon on its altitude

  5. works for me. I could care less, I’m almost dead! Wouldn’t mind seeing an alien kick the crap out of Obama before I go though.

  6. I would like to thank my realtor for placing me in this exact spot so I can see the moon revolve around the earth every day.

  7. The Moon is not “stationary”. It rotates on its axis approx. once every 28 days. That’s why we see the same side all the time.

  8. A year ago, during a lecture about the Moon in a museum in London, I asked a scientist how is it possible that the Moon stays in orbit to Earth, given that it’s too big in comparison, the biggest satellite in the Solar System, and the gravitational pull is not strong enough to keep it there. The answer was that actually quite surprising, according to that scientist, the Moon is gradually drifting away, about 1cm per year (allegedly this has been going on for millions of years). After a moment of silence in the auditorium, I was about to ask, if that is the case, why is the Moon still there, and didn’t escape Earth’s gravitational field, but the host stopped me before I could make any more questions, with the excuse that there was no time left for more questions. The question still bothers me…
