Giant Impact Theory of Lunar Formation Gains More Credibility

The moon may be a chip off the old block after all...
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

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.
