The tides come in and the tides go out. You can't explain that!

That is not the teaching of Islam!

Then why did you make the remark about the original theory? The article makes no claim that the theory is new, and in fact it says the opposite, that it is "the most commonly invoked explanation for lunar formation". What is new is the two recent studies mentioned.
