Introduction

The moon is a marvelous body in the solar system. And it is said that the moon holds the key to understanding both the earth and the solar system. As seen with the naked eye, the non-luminous moon is a dark “rocky body.”

The moon revolves around the earth. The earth likewise, also orbits the moon. Both moon and earth did this along a line called the barycenter. This takes between 27 to 31 days.

Living in the Moon

"If a man asks how we can get people to survive for a year or more on the moon, we could well reply that we do not yet know and that we might be able to give him an answer if he came back in say ten years' time."-Professor John Yudkin.

Life on the Moon

Life could be possible on the moon. When the moon is dark, you can see a man there with the naked eyes. Does he really exist? When I was a boy, I called my father’s attention to it, and he laughed it off! Now, I know that all the arguments, theories, or hypotheses.

If ever there is life on the moon, these lives are the United States and Russian flags dotted about on the surface of the moon. But real life is being lived on the planet earth. Could life actually exist on the moon? It could be.

Billions of years ago, there is life is on the moon. Whether that life is human-like and angelic we are not told. Fact and evidence are that there exists a lake of water or maria up there. Where they are water, life and civilization exist or develop. Now it is dried up. The moon is cool like our planet earth.

The Dateless Past

“The moon is thought to have formed about 4.51 billion years ago, not long after Earth.”-Wikipedia.

Moon Formation

“The most widely accepted explanation is that the moon formed from the debris left after a giant impact between Earth and Mars-sized body called Theia.”-Wikipedia.

The Creative Act

Psalm 8:3 in the bible inform that the moon and the stars, including the sun, a star were creative acts of God billions of years ago. The moon is created along with the sun. “Let there be light, and there was light.” You can read the rest of the story in the Bible Genesis 1:3, 4, 14, 15, 16, and Psalm 136: 7 – 9. And further: “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night…for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years.” Our computations of the days into weeks, months and years is the result.

It is apparent here that the sun, moon, and the stars have specific functions.

In modern times, no life can function on the moon. This is because of its chaotic state after the big bang.

Actually, during the first creative acts, life exists on the solar moon as on the earth. This life whether human or angelic or both, we are not informed. But the scientist has speculated aliens and flying saucers along the line. If that is the case, then we can safely opine that the mysterious mermaids, for example, have inhabited a sort of planet pro to the "Big Bang” theory. These lives before the Adamic times. Some beings in the form of angelic spirits survive. These become demons in the atmosphere. They part ways forever with the creator God, and the moon likewise becomes a total waste and empty "tohu-bohu" in the Hebrew language.

Functions of Stars

  1. The sun is the biggest star and is to rule or control the day and shown its light on the earth during day time.
  2. The big luminous earth moon to rule or control the night or show lights during the night.
  3. The small twinkle- twinkle little stars are subordinate to the earth's moon. They brighten the skyline at night.
  4. The earth-moon controls the rise and fall off the tides, and thus marine life in the rivers and seas.

There is order here. The sun controls the moon. Then, the moon controls the earth and the stars, and further, the marine life. Stars are forming and dying out to the naked eyes, but that is not so. When certain stars are falling in brilliant white (ash) form, these later ascend back in a much bigger form and higher energy. Nothing dies out at the end. In other words, the matter is either create nor destroy.

The "Big Bang" and its Effect

The Big Bang theory proposed by science is a reality. I am influenced by the Bible to assert that. There is a foundation in the Bible to support the hypothesis. But I think many scientists are unable to find that in the Bible. Here is one: “The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the dept...” Genesis 1:1-3. If scientists will explain the theory of the big bang from this scripture, many mysterious planets will be clearly de-mystified. At present, we do not know much about our moon. The Creator holds the key.

Actually, the big bang occurs billions of years ago when the Edenic creatures were annihilated. It results in the Edenic solar system being wrap in total "thick' darkness, and then there was a nuclear collision with the matter. This results in the present solar system. Our moon is one effect and other moons are another effect of that same collision. The earth-moon gives out light at night. The moon is also visible at certain times of the day during its phrase.

Luminous and Non-Luminous Moon

A luminous object usually radiates light on its own. The sun is the best luminous object in the solar system. It does not depend on any other heavenly body for light. It is the source of all lights in the solar system.

A non-luminous object like the earth, a person, a car, or a building could not do that. The tiny stars are luminous.

Our planet moon is a non-luminous object. She gets her light from the big sun. So with the light from the sun, she becomes charged and luminous. Without any light from the sun, the moon is non-luminous.

It is clear that the moon can remain in this "charged" state for a while. Hence, at night during the full moon, you can see the dark skyline behind the moon. Then like a battery, the energy wanes off. The moon becomes cool and goes away for a brief season.

The certain scientist is of the opinion that a moon is a transparent object. The reason being that the blue sky can be seen through a waning moon during the day. You can also see the dark skyline and stars behind the moon during the night in the same way as said before.

Luminous Objects

Speak out Your Mind

Which of the following are luminous objects?

Full Moon

According to Wikipedia, “The full moon is the lunar phase when the Moon appears fully illuminated from Earth’s perspective. This occurs when Earth is located between the Sun and the Moon (more exactly, when the ecliptic longitudes of the Sun and Moon differ by 1000). This means that the lunar hemisphere facing Earth – the near side – is completely sunlit and appears as a circular disk, while the far side is dark. The full moon occurs once roughly every month.”

When the moon becomes full moon or full crescent, the rivers, creeks, and seas rises higher and began to overflow their banks. Flooding of waterfronts and residential premises at the precinct of the water front’s results. Fishes in the seas will likely hibernate at such times. Because the higher the tide rises, the pressure on the liver of marine life becomes unbearable. We, humans, are unlikely to dive 100 feet deep into a river without life-supporting equipment. Certain fishes like sardines, mullets, tilapia, and eel skippers which required low water cannot survive. They sleep to save a life. At the right tide, they woke up, and fishermen like me make a good catch for food and surplus sales.

A New Calendar

According to the big bang theory or hypothesis, our solar system is ever expanding and will soon come to a melt-down. Then, only then humankind will cease to exist. This also explains that we will be having long days and longer nights in the meantime. Not the longer days experienced usually in January. You are noticing that these days both night and days are getting longer and longer. Then the 12 months Julie calendar will be reducing. It can go down anyway by 9 or 10 months in the distance future.

Can you ever remember that they are a 13th calendar month once a while? On the same note, have you ever recalled 27 days in February in a while? Because our minds have been programmed to the 28 or 29 days in February, and 30 and 31 days in the rest of the other months, we seem to accept those as the norm. All of these will change later. This is what the big bang possibilities are. And we are experiencing new realities as:

  • Global warmings.
  • Lack of rainfall in certain parts of the world in these modern times like the North American continent.
  • Melting of the Polar region.
  • The “waves and seas roaring.”
  • Fearful sights in the skies.
  • "Men's hearts failing them on account of these things."

Predicting the Appearance of the Moon

The moon's appearance is associated with certain festivals or time frame. FIshermen like me can predict the next appearance of the moon or the changes in tidal waves that are favorable for a fishing expenditure. But all these are no longer easy. It is a near miss.

Recently, a Chief Muslim cleric is asking for help among fellow Muslims and non-muslims alike for the sighting of the new moon. This is to enable the fixing of the Ramadan fasting period in Nigeria. " Muslims, are, therefore, requested to start looking for the new moon of Ramadan 1440 A.H on Sunday; May 05, 2019 and to report its sighting for...onward transmission to the Sultan," says the report.

Three days later, there is no sighting of the moon!. She appears on Tuesday 7, May 2019 in the evening.

The sighting of the new moon among Muslims is easy to predict a decade ago. But now all these are questionable. The reason is that the solar system has got weird.

Significance of the Moon

The earth's moon is significant because of the following reasons.

  1. Holds the key to understanding the earth and the solar system.
  2. The laboratory of planetary science.
  3. A “Place to live and work in space.”
  4. Its motion and position determines the rise and falls off tidal waves.
  5. During an eclipse of the sun, the moon blocks the rays of the sun from reaching the earth. But the shadow of the moon is cast on the earth.

Conclusion

The moon still offers significant mystery of study. We have seen that the earth's moon is a non-luminous object but becomes luminous when charged with the rays of the sun. The moon’s principal function is the control of the numerous lesser stars, and the night by giving light. The moon further controls the rivers, seas, and all marine life.
