Umm, an article found at the following link – http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41997880/ns/technology_and_science-space/from/toolbar says that the moon is going to be closer to earth than it has ever been… in 18 years. This is going to happen on March 19th, and of course, 2011. So, Just because it is going to be closer to the earth than it has ever been in 18 years, astronomers have said that many (and some big) natural disasters might occur. Now, this might happen! I don’t doubt our scientists and astronomers and all them peeps enough to say that they are totally wrong… but this just doesn’t sound right. It says that it is going to be closer to earth than it has ever been in the past 18 years, right? 18 YEARS!!! NOT 100!!! 18 years ago, I don’t remember there being big natural disasters because the moon was really close to the earth.
But, on the other hand, the moon does effect the earth’s tides and stuff, so why couldn’t it effect some other things, such as volcanos, hurricanes, earthquakes, and whatever else they mentioned in the article. And sometimes scientists are right. I am not going to say most of the time because in the past two years, I have done Apolagia’s Science curriculem and their biology curriculem, And he has pointed out many, MANY times that scientists have been wrong. Well, not just scientists, but astronomers and biologists and archeoligists, and so on. So, I have come to realize that science has had many flaws, but many of those flaws have been corrected.
Anyways, I think that this might make tides go farther inland (maybe) and stuff, but I don’t think that all the volcanos of the world are going to explode on March 19th. So, my vote is that some minor things might happen, maybe an earthquake, but overall, not much.
So, what do you think?
