Evidence of how our Moon formed... found?

Evidence of how our Moon formed... found?
"Researchers have found evidence of the world that crashed into the Earth billions of years ago to form the Moon.

Analysis of lunar rock brought back by Apollo astronauts shows traces of the "planet" called Theia.

The researchers claim that their discovery confirms the theory that the Moon was created by just such a cataclysmic collision.

The study has been published in the journal Science.

Its extraordinary to think that our planet and our natural satellite could have formed from such an event.

You'd think there be nothing but debris, another asteroid belt around the Sun.

Life can still emerge in the universe in the most improbable of places. ^^

Not to mention their deity sets up and advocates inequality.

How dare he make the sun greater just to outshine the moon!

What's he got against moons anyways? >:C

Some of them will say that God directed Theia to collide with the Earth so there would be a lesser light to govern the night. Big Grin

In a way, there was nothing but debris moments after the impact. The structure of the original earth and the impactor was almost totally disrupted by the big splat.

It was only fact that the impactor revolved around the sun in the same direction as the earth, and approached earth relatively gentally, that kept the impact energy relatively low, and kept most of the debris from simply flying off to form a asteriod belt around the sun, but instead quickly fell back on the center of the mass to reform the earth, with a small portion remaining in an orbit to for a new moon.

If the impact had been head on, the collision would have been vastly more energetic and there would be no more earth left.

Where is this planet called Theia, how could they know what they were comparing.

God loves those who believe and those who do not and the same goes for me, you have no choice in this matter. That puts the matter of total free will to rest.

If you shut up, you might convince people you are only profoundly stupid.

Refuses to provide evidence of gawd claims at every request but wants evidence of scientific claim.

Double-standard much?
"Crooked Warden, Nameless Thirteenth, Thiefwatcher, Benefactor, Father of Necessary Pretexts, I will fear no darkness for the night is yours, Your night is my cloak, my shield, my escape from those who hunt to feed the noose. I will fear no evil, for you have made the night my friend.

Bless the Benefactor, Peace and profit to his children."

From the book "Red Seas Under Red Skies" by Scott Lynch

Wait for the moon to rise. Look up at the sky. Look down at the ground.

You're welcome.

(Drops mic)

You want to know how we know this? That's an entirely different question that you failed to contemplate, apparently.
