Earth’s capture of the moon c.2000bc By Gary Gilligan
How Earth gained such a large moon is still one of the great unsolved mysteries of our time.
I propose past planetary chaos involving Earth, Mars and Venus resulted in the capture of the moon in orbit around the Earth c.2000 BC. This chaotic ‘capture’ of the moon paralleling a “Dark Age” as proposed by archaeologists.
I will show that the moon could not have existed during prehistory as evidenced by the absence of the moon in Neolithic artwork and artifacts.
Though I have amassed a great deal of
corroborative material supporting past planetary chaos covering the periods
between 3000-500BC, in this essay, I will limit the discussion to Neolithic
cultures and will separate these from the later ‘fully formed’ civilizations
such as the Sumerians. (c.3000bc.)
Additional evidence will be discussed in future
