Would Earth Survive Without the Moon?
Before Its News
You may be surprised to find out, as I was, that the Earth does not really need the moon. That it was “perfectly placed to sustain life” turns out to be a load of nonsense.
Sure, things would be different, but in a good way, believe it or not.
The moon’s mysterious introduction into an earthbound orbit still puzzles scientists, esoteric philosphers and ancient historians alike. While physicists puzzle over the anomalous characterists of the moon, many ancient tales and writings refer to a time “before the moon”.
The persistent underlying question to me is, these Controllers that are running and ruining our planet – where are they from and why are they doing it? And I’d also like to know what the moon’s got to do with it cuz it ain’t supposed to be there.
Here’s the Deal..It’s Not What We Were Told (Again…)
First, the scientific take from one researcher:
What would have happened if the Earth did not have the Moon?
- On a daily basis, we would still have large breakers on the continental west coasts because of the rotation speed of the Earth, and the existence of storms out at sea, and sloping beaches. The waves we are most familiar with from minute to minute are caused by small ripples out at sea caused by storms, which get amplified into majestic breakers by their motion up a sloping beach, and the rotation of the Earth from west to east which gives them added momentum. Without the Moon, we would still have high and low tides due to the Sun, but these would be half as tall as the lunar high and low tides. There would, however, be no Neap or Spring Tides which occur when the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth, or on the same side.
- So far as anyone can tell, there would be no impacts on the issue of life on the Earth because, if ocean tides were important in getting life started by, for example, mixing up the so-called ‘primordial soup’, the solar tides ought to have been more than adequate to have done the same thing 3.5 – 4.0 billion years ago.
- Without the Moon, there would have been no necessity for breaking the calendar year into 12 months.
- The tidal stress upon the Earth due to the gravity from the Moon would have vanished, and some feel that this might have had an impact on how active the crust of the Earth would be in terms of vulcanism and continental drift. It is possible that the Earth would have been slightly less geologically active, and when the Earth’s atmosphere was first being formed via volcanic outgassing, perhaps it would have taken a bit longer for the atmosphere to have reached high enough concentrations necessary for synthesizing life. I think, however, that the physics of the interior of the Earth, the rate of convection of the mantle, is far more under the control of non-lunar influences intrinsic to the Earth itself.
- Without the Moon, there would be no 26,000 precession of the equinoxes which is due to the torquing of the Earth by the Moon. This would be replaced by a much slower precession caused by the influence of the Sun, Venus and Mars. The axis of the Earth’s rotation in space would point towards the same spot in the sky for 100’s of thousands and even millions of years.
- Recent computer simulations suggest that, without the Moon, the Earth’s axis tilt may have been very different than what it is today. This would have caused very different seasons on the Earth, and the impact that this could have had on the developing biosphere ranges from moderate to catastrophic. The Moon actually seems to stabilize the tilt of the Earth’s rotation axis over the course of billions of years.
- Without the Moon, there might not be any seasons, or the seasons might be very different ones. It is believed that the Moon is an interloper from a more distant spot in the solar system which was captured by the Earth billions of years ago. This capture would have caused the rotation axis of the Earth to be seriously shifted to where it is now. The Earth may have started off with a rotation axis pointing almost perpendicular to the plane of the solar system, rather than canted at 23.5 degrees as it is now. Without this tilt, the rays from the Sun would always strike the Earth’s surface at a fixed angle every day of the year. At the Earth’s equator, the Sun’s rays would always be perpendicular to the ground all year long. At a latitude of 45 degrees, they would strike the ground at 45 degrees every day, and at the North and South Poles, the Sun would never make it above the horizon.
- Seasons would be dictated, not by time of year, but by your particular latitude on the Earth. There would be a belt around the equator where it always felt like summer. At mid-latitudes it would always feel like spring or autumn, and in the extreme latitudes we would have winter all year around. This would have significant effects on weather systems, circulation patterns etc.
- Without the Moon, there would be no change in the length of the day due to the tidal friction between the Earth and Moon. Source
Nothing planet-destroying there..now let’s look at an historical perspective
The Earth Without the Moon
The period when the Earth was Moonless is probably the most remote recollection of mankind. Democritus and Anaxagoras taught that there was a time when the Earth was without the Moon.(1) Aristotle wrote that Arcadia in Greece, before being inhabited by the Hellenes, had a population of Pelasgians, and that these aborigines occupied the land already before there was a moon in the sky above the Earth; for this reason they were called Proselenes.(2)
Apollonius of Rhodes mentioned the time “when not all the orbs were yet in the heavens, before the Danai and Deukalion races came into existence, and only the Arcadians lived, of whom it is said that they dwelt on mountains and fed on acorns, before there was a moon.” (3)
Plutarch wrote in The Roman Questions: “There were Arcadians of Evander’s following, the so-called pre-Lunar people.”(4) Similarly wrote Ovid: “The Arcadians are said to have possessed their land before the birth of Jove, and the folk is older than the Moon.” (5) Hippolytus refers to a legend that “Arcadia brought forth Pelasgus, of greater antiquity than the moon.”(6) Lucian in his Astrology says that “the Arcadians affirm in their folly that they are older than the moon.”(7)
Censorinus also alludes to the time in the past when there was no moon in the sky.(8)
Some allusions to the time before there was a Moon may be found also in the Scriptures. In Job 25:5 the grandeur of the Lord who “Makes peace in the heights” is praised and the time is mentioned “before [there was] a moon and it did not shine.” Also in Psalm 72:5 it is said: “Thou wast feared since [the time of] the sun and before [the time of] the moon, a generation of generations.” A “generation of generations” means a very long time. Of course, it is of no use to counter this psalm with the myth of the first chapter of Genesis, a tale brought down from exotic and later sources.
The memory of a world without a moon lives in oral tradition among the Indians. The Indians of the Bogota highlands in the eastern Cordilleras of Colombia relate some of their tribal reminiscences to the time before there was a moon. “In the earliest times, when the moon was not yet in the heavens,” say the tribesmen of Chibchas.(9)
There are currently three theories of the origin of the moon:
1) The Moon originated at the same time as the Earth, being formed substantially from the same material, aggregating and solidifying.
2) The Moon was formed not in the vicinity of the Earth, but in a different part of the solar system, and was later captured by the Earth.
3) The Moon was originally a portion of the terrestrial crust and was torn out, leaving behind the bed of the Pacific.
All three theories claim the presence of the Moon on an orbit around the Earth for billions of years. Mythology may supply each of these views with some support (Genesis I for the first view; the birth of Aphrodite from the sea for the third view; Aphrodite’s origin in the disruption of Uranus, and also the violence of Sin—the Babylonian Moon—seems to support the second view).
Since mankind on both sides of the Atlantic preserved the memory of a time when the Earth was without the Moon, the first hypothesis, namely, of the Moon originating simultaneously with the Earth and in its vicinity, is to be excluded, leaving the other two hypotheses to compete between themselves.
We have seen that the traditions of diverse peoples offer corroborative testimony to the effect that in a very early age, but still in the memory of mankind, no moon accompanied the Earth.(10) Since human beings already peopled the Earth, it is improbable that the Moon sprang from it: there must have existed a solid lithosphere, not a liquid earth. Thus while I do not claim to know the origin of the Moon, I find it more probable that the Moon was captured by the Earth. Such an event would have occurred as a catastrophe.(11) If the Moon’s formation took place away from the Earth,(12) its composition may be quite different. Source
It Is a “quite different” composition
They’ve recently concluded the composition of the moon is much, much older than the earth. Hence it did not come from the earth, but was indeed “captured”….although I find that hard to believe, since the moon has way more mass than it should to even be a natural moon to the earth, and hence a body hardly “capturable” by earth’s gravity.
But Were WE Captured?
Many believe the Moon could only have been deliberately brought into Earth’s orbit as a control device by an extraterrestrial race. We humans may in fact be under the arbitrary command of an extraterrestrial race based inside the Moon itself.
Like that? Try it on for size. Hey, I’m open. Hope you are too.
Is that why we didn’t go back to the Moon, because what they found there scared the pants off of them? The matrix has tentacles we know not of…but we’re finding them!
For example, imagine the impact the moon has on the “time conspiracy”. Isn’t the moon like a giant watch we’re all forced to gear our lives to? If it was indeed set here for control purposes that sure is one of its most prominent effects.
The year now is divided into 12 lunar months which in turn are chopped into weeks. If there was no moon, what then? Our days would each seem to be of the same wonderful potential instead of being filed under categories where we are more likely to mark the past and fear the future. Without the axis tilt seasons would be consistent. Migration would cause seasonal changes whenever you desired them. Pretty cool, eh?
Time plays into the whole fear of death, production-oriented societal model that ensnares and blinds the masses. While our days are “marked” by time, hierarchical structures are more easily foisted upon us to insure our futures and “safety and security” instead of an ongoing now-oriented more mystical existence.
Quite the scam. But I may be going too fast for some of you.
Watch this regarding the “Moon Matrix” as expounded by amazing researcher and Truth activist David Icke:
Keep wondering, that’s what it’s all about.
More and more we’re learning to be led by our hearts, our true consciousness, for lack of knowledge and information and empirical data that we’re deliberately deprived of.
And so their agenda continues to backfire, as we’re developing our intuitive senses that are much, much more powerful than anything else in our human arsenal. That inner voice, my friends, is the True compass, the True voice, the True source. The great common heart within us all.
Develop that and we join in with the wonder, mystery and eternal creative power of a loving, unfolding Universe!
Enjoy the ride!
