1. The Origin Of The Moon [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 3 (1994) Home | Issue Contents The Origin Of The Moon Charles Ginenthal The origin of the Moon has been an extremely controversial problem among astronomers and geophysicists for a long time. There are, at present, four major theories under consideration by members of the astrophysical community. Each of the four groups of advocates has been attempting to show that the evidence for its position is strongest and that the other concepts are fundamentally unfounded. In this contest of hypotheses, Velikovsky has interpreted the mythology and arrived at the conclusion that the Moon was captured recently by the Earth and set into its present orbit. In "Earth Without a Moon ...

... of the closeness of the inferred surface temperature to its boiling point of oak. The high Pb/2o4Pb ratio in lunar samples, assumed to be radiogenesis, might otherwise be explained by the high temperatures inferred from the glazed surface rather than decay of U and Th. High 180 values were said to have occurred only at the time of origin of the moon. Gold insisted, however, that the glaze came relatively recently, else it would have disappeared long ago. Lead values imply that U and Th exceeded lead at the beginning seen by the very high 238U/204pb ratio. Data in Moon Issue, p. 461 showed that this ratio is even now 200 to ...

... in so doing, but the Moon insisted that she would only drop her bones temporarily and then grow new ones (presumably the phases of the Moon). The presence of the sea-cow in this mythical song and dance cycle points, however, to a possible Venusian origin (around 3400 B.P ); the elements indicating a terrestrial origin of the Moon off the edge of Australia (not necessarily the present waters of Australia) may be an archaic element juxtaposed with an explanation of the Moon's phases, and with later contacts between the Moon and the planet Venus (the sea cow, the lotus flower, and the evening star-all are joined together in the chants). ...

The real question is: Do scientists offer the theory that planets can fission from other planets such as Jupiter? Of course they do, and have been doing so for a long time. Patrick Moore, in discussing the origin of the Moon as first delineated by G. H. Darwin, the son of the great naturalist, Charles Darwin, as long ago as 1879, suggested just this concept: "Darwin started by assuming that the Earth and the Moon originally formed from one body, and that the Moon was thrown off as a fluid-mass.

Large stretches of lava in its bottom (Pettersson), and huge quantities of ashes indicate this. The moon with its large craters and dried seas of lava comes into mind (without agreeing with the theory of the origin of the moon from the bed of the Pacific). Your idea of the guyots being islands submerged ca. 500 fathoms (3 ,000 feet) is well supported by the findings of M. Ewing in the Atlantic (sand beaches submerged 3 miles, or 15,000 feet).

Enormous Burden of Doubt Again on November 10, 197 1, I attended a Physics Colloquium at UCSD where Urey reviewed "Evidence Relating to the Origin of the Moon." He opened with the statement: "I do not know the origin of the moon, I'm not sure of my own or any other's models, I'd lay odds against any of the models proposed being correct." The impression thereafter was that an enormous burden of doubt obviously underlies the thinking of all these ...

Such a gradient was detected over two years later by the Apollo 15 team and startled the theorists- the outflow of heat was almost three times more than expected by those who hold to the hot origin of the moon; those who hold to the cold origin of the moon are baffled even more. The hydrocarbons that have been deposited on the moon in an earlier cosmic event (Worlds in Collision, part I, "Venus") must have "in a subsequent melting of the ground" converted "into carbides or carbonates. ...

[4 ] The first hypothesis astronomers explored to explain the thorium enrichment was based on the prevailing theory concerning the origin of the Moon. "The moon once was hot and molten and as it cooled minerals crystallized and sank to form the core, if they were heavy, or floated upward to form the crust, if they were light. The last material to solidify contained thorium, potassium, gadolinium and samarium, which do not readily incorporate into ...

... been done with the Oort cloud theory in spite of the presently highly hypothetical, untestable nature of it. The scientists believe it is useful but this is a very far cry from having "a conclusive testable chain of reasoning to support it." The very same kind of untestable considerations exist for the origin of the solar system, the origin of the moon, and in several other areas of scientific research. But this has not stopped papers on these concepts being published in reputable journals and these theoretical proposals finding acceptance within large segments and even among majorities of the scientific community.

In discussing the earliest event, the origin of the Moon (as originally proposed by Thomas See) based on the capture method, Velikovsky is on reasonably safe astronomical ground with established theory- except for his time scale- which has always been one of the strongest negative considerations with respect to his work.
