Did the Moon Just Get Here?

Did the moon get towed into orbit in 2200 BCE?

No. The Mayan calendar starts the current long count starting August 11, 3114 BCE. These guys knew their stuff including the orbit of the moon. And precession of the Equinoxes. And orbits of other planets. If they did NOT have the moon orbit calculated then maybe you have a chance in the "towed in" moon theory.

The Earth's mass and gravitational field is wrong for capturing a object the size and mass of the Moon.

The Moon is slowly moving away from the Earth. (at a small amount per year)
The Earth's spin is slowing down (at a small rate)

If you wind the clock back, you'll find a moon that is very close to the Earth, and the Earth is spinning very, very fast: the result of a major impact.

What follows is a Moon created out of the debris of that impact, and then between the Earth and the Moon, slowly braking the Earth's spin to what it is today.

As mentioned in another post: it also is what caused the moon to be tidally in phase with it's spin on it's axis and it's orbit around the Earth (and why one side always faces us).

Does this math showing it to be an impossible capture include both natural capture and the "aliens towed it in" theory? Thanks for your reply either way.

We also have fossil evidence of tides on Earth generated by the Moon going back millions of years.

Unfortunately the source is not cited for a moon tidal record going back millions of years. On a side note, the same source also places the Earth as the second most dense moon in our solar system. If the moon is hollow, the other ones are more hollow.

Yea, it kind of does.

All this flood talk, is it possible the flood is hyperbolic. Is a metaphor for something else. Isn't the floos called the great deluge?? Which isnt that off which the root word for dellusional. What if the flood is the cleansing, not an actual flood as in the literal sense
