Destruction from the Moon!

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?

One thought on “Destruction from the Moon!

    I tend not to follow the horror stories. Horror stories and horror prophecies tend to be wrong. It’s possible that they are right, but as you mentioned, 18 years is not a long time. Considering that the earth and moon and sun and all the other hunks of various substances out there are supposedly billions of years old, this and many worse things have probably happened before. Also, along the “By chance” line of thought which the majority of scientists are forced to believe and accept, there have been massive catastrophes and the moon used to be much closer.

    I think the main reason that this is up all over the news is that it’s a horror prophecy. Nobody wants to hear that we’re all going to be OK. An article is not going to get press if it says we’re going to be OK. I’m not saying that they are completely wrong, I’m just saying that this does not neccesarily accurately reflect scientific research.

    And if it is all really true, we’re all gonna be dead. Not too shabby, if you think about it
