Vulcanheph:

A scientist once said that there are two possibilities; Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone and both possibilities are frightening.

There might not have been any physical proof that aliens exist but you can't tell me that with a universe so vast with plentiful galaxies, numerous solar systems and countless planets.... You cannot tell me that there isn't a possibility that intelligent life exists outside there.
I really doubt life exists outside the milky way , at least we are sure nothing is in the Solar System , we are one spontaneous freak accident , Maybe.

Genesis 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
wow real story ?

Who's "we"? Do not generalize your truth upon others. There's more to life than what you hear in the news.

We , humans
Sadly we are generalized that way
And yes theres no life in the solar system . None.

if you believe the bolded, then I cannot engage in an argument with you any further and I was referring to the sun in our solar system.

You don't know the sun is white? You need to update your knowledge.

it is only in physics it is called white as as it emits all light , so you answered in physics great!

according to physics , in context to the moon the sun is not white but hellish yellow.

Nobody talks about the Moon!!
The moon has been mysterious for a while now until recently we found out that the moon was formed during the heavy bombardment leaving fragments of the each to gather and form till it be came a satilite and had its orbit around the Earth , we know this because other planets moons have formed right before our very eyes. So yeah the moon is the death part of the Earth ,we can still see the craters on it .


Yeah back to the question , what was your superstitious belief om how the moon got there


Some believed the Sun was God and the moon the evil brother
Don't be silly. Every planetary body including all the moons were formed millions of years ago when humans have not even existed.

The only theory that satisfies every is that God created the universe and chose to keep life here on earth alone for His special purpose.

Not always...

When old stars go supernova, new stars are born. The residual star dust go on to form planets and moons.
It takes millions of years for those stardust to form any object either another star or planet or moon. We've barely spent 100,000 years of advance human existence. So there's no way any body could have 'witnessed' a new planet or moon even in our galaxy not to talk of our solar system.

Here's two facts about the moon that I find most intriguing.

1. The moon is positioned in such a way that an observer from Earth will see it as the same size as the sun despite the fact that the sun is 400 times bigger than the moon, the accuracy of the positioning is so accurate that it is believed to have been more than just a coincidence.

2. The size of the Earth's moon in relationship to the planet it revolves around is the biggest when compared to the moons of the planets in the solar system.
(If you don't understand this, I'm sorry but I don't know any better way to explain it)
The sun is over 10,000 times the size of the moon.

There is one I just have one question about the moon that keep on raking my brain.

How come since American astronauts Neil armstrong and buzz Aldrin went to the moon in 1969 there has not been any other mission to the moon since then and neither has there been any known attempt to explore more of the moon, instead there are preparing for missions to Mars.

The moon was empty and boring. Mars too is empty and now becoming boring. We need to get to Jupiter.

The universe is just another group or collection of ageless indivisible objects.

There are different ageless indivisible objects inside and outside the universe.


There is no limit to the ageless indivisible objects that exist.

If you have noticed, the moon only shows us one side of it's face? Why does it do that? What's on the far side of the moon?

I believe debris and dirt of the atmosphere/Clouds gives off the red colouring of the moon

That's in terms of diameter. In terms of volume which is actual size it's over 10,000 times.

4/3 × pi × r^3

That's way over 10,000

It's still the same thing bros. Why does the moon only show us one face? What is it hiding on the other side?

I don't think this is a natural coincidence.

It takes one second for light to travel to the moon

I know one can also calculate in terms of volume but I find calculating in terms of diameter more straightforward since both of them have a shape that roughly resembles that of a sphere
