I think our moon is unique in the fact that the direction it rotates on its axis. It is the only moon in our solar system that rotates in that
direction and for the speed at which it does it only shows one side as it revolves around the Earth. That's plain weird. all the stuff that just by
chance happened. If the Earth was smaller we would have less gravity if bigger we would have more. The sun comes up and goes down about the same time
we get tired. Just the right amount of oxygen and nitrogen to breath and not ignite at the first spark.. If the Earth was bigger a maniac ruler could
go unchecked longer, in other words we could still be fighting world war 2. if gravity did not adversely affect us.
Somebody's got to tell you this in a compassionate, concerned tone, to get your attention.
It's weird that you think the moon's rotation direction [eastwards when viewed from north] is weird because practically every other planet and moon
and a lot of asteroids rotate the same way [Neptune and Venus are the weirdos].
It's weird that you think that gravitational lock is weird when EVERY close-in moon in the solar system -- ours, Mars, Jupiter,
Saturn, etc.. as well as Mercury the planet relative to the Sun -- is in tidal lock, usually 1:1 but in Mercury's case 3:2, but still locked.
"That's plain weird. all the stuff that just by chance happened. " None of this "just by chance happened", it's how semi-plastic objects in a
differential gravity field will ALWAYS wind up.
Heck, we even place artificial satellites into gravity-locked orientations to save control thruster gas. Tethered satellite system,s naturally assume
gravity lock in a few days after deployment.
Please read more widely and think about it more assiduously. We'll be here to help.
