Ever since modern men has rejected the Word of God and embraced secular evolution, they have relentlessly sought a viable origin for the Moon.  Yet, every one of their theories ends up with problems that cannot be explained by the known laws of astronomy and physics.

In their attempts to find another alternative explanation for the origin and structure of the Moon, a group of researchers from the University of Bern, Switzerland have proposed that the Earth once had two moons.

They theorize that about four billion years ago, the Earth was impacted by a planet about the size of Mars.  The material that was ejected coalesced to form two moons, one larger than the other.  Supposedly, the larger moon consisted of a magma core with a thin hardened outer crust.  After an unknown number of millions of years, the smaller moon very slowly impacted the larger moon at a velocity of less than 1.5 miles per second.  The impact forced huge amounts of magma to the side closest to the earth and left large ridges and mountains almost 10,000 feet high on the far side of the moon.

The scientists are looking to new upcoming NASA projects to either prove or disprove their two moon theory.  The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is supposed to obtain information on the internal structure of the moon.  The Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory mission, also known as GRAIL, will conduct high resolution gravity mapping of the moon next year.

In a time when the economies of many nations are in trouble, millions of dollars and thousands of man hours will be spent on trying to pursue this new theory of the Moon’s origin and structure.

Yet, for less than $50 and no more than several minutes, they could find the answer to their burning questions.  All they need to do is read the verses in Genesis 1 that tell us:

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Gen 1:1

And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.  Gen. 1:14-19

Genesis teaches that God created the entire universe supernaturally, only thousands of years ago. Yet, most people are convinced that the universe started in a big bang billions of years in the past. In this illustrated lecture, astronomer Dr. Jason Lisle shows viewers that when the evidence of nature is understood properly, it lines up perfectly with the clear teachings of Scripture. The heavens declare the glory of God!
