In 1969, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon for the very first time. That particular mission (Apollo 11) was followed by five more missions. Many do not know this, the man behind the Apollo moon mission was a creationist rocket scientist named; Wernher von Braun.
Now the moon missions were the result of the cold war competition and not surprisingly, President Obama did not mention any further exploration of man in space during his speech during the 40th year celebration of the first landing on the moon.
Evolutionists claim, the moon gave us insight on naturalism as stated below by Professor Martin Ward, who is head of Physics at Durham University…
“Apart from the sheer wonder of seeing on live TV grainy images of man on the moon, many people might ask ‘what has the moon ever done for us?’ There are superficial justifications for visiting our nearest neighbour, one being that space technology saw the advent of non-stick frying pans. However, the Apollo programme also pushed forward computer technology and the miniaturisation of electronics which benefit our lives today.”
“The deepest justification for visiting the moon, though, is that many astronomers now believe it may have played a crucial role in the evolution of life on Earth. Information gained from moon rock samples, and experiments set up on the lunar surface, have given us new insights into the make-up and evolution of the moon and hence our own origins.”
Ward omits detail on how the moon’s rock is connected with the origin of human life on earth. Currently, there are a few theories concerning the moon’s origin in evolution. Every single one of them has major flaws which is one of the reasons why they haven’t settled on one particular hypothesis yet.
Impact Theory – Excess angular momentum is a major problem for this theory. Calculations show that to get enough material to form the moon, the impacting object would need to have been twice as massive as Mars.
Fission theory –This theory was was tossed years ago because the earth could never have spun fast enough to throw a moon into orbit, and the escaping moon would have been shattered while within the Roche Limit.
Capture theory -The moon being captured by Earth’s gravity is not practical even it there was such a miracle, the moon would be in a elongated comet-like orbit.
Condensation theory –no dust cloud could be dense enough, and it doesn’t account for the moon’s low iron content.
So did the moon give us more information about evolution? The answer is “no” but it did create more questions than answers for evolutionists. The moon of course was designed by God, and it does what it’s suppose to do in a precise way, the study of it is quite interesting!
