We no the moon influences the tides and is correlated with womens menstual cycles and that the lunar months were used to measure time. Some
thought crops grew better in the "face of the moon", many cultures attribute supernatural powers to the moon hence werewolves but it is more helpful
than u think.
that the Moon revolves every 27.3 days
. We know
that the female
menstrual cycle is a very fickle thing and never follow the same schedule and are subject to change based on a slieu of other factors. (met one
lately? She'll tell you) Lunar months were used because it was a constant calendar. If you can't invent a clock as we have today, an orb that
changes on a recurring schedule is a perfect substitute. The Moon was formed before humans, we evolved with it there, and developed uses for our own
purposes. As for growing in the face of the moon, well, there's extra sunlight. As for werewolves, that's a definite NO.
The moons pull stabilises the axial tilt of the earth- meaning the earth doesnt wobble more wildy. This tilt creates seasons and the range of
temperature isnt as big as if it wasn on a tilt - the oceans wud be frozen and equatorial regions wud be too hot to sustain life.
Apparently the tides have caused a vital role in evolution. The first organisms to come out of the oceans and live on land were probably mollusc like
creatues stranded in rock pools at low tide.
And so do all the planets, and asteroids, and everything else that exists. The moon happens to matter more because it's closer. And you'd only
have such an extreme scenario if it was that extreme, not because we have no moon. You'll notice the Sun dinfluences the tides as well, but is
pretty much ignorable despite its size since it is so far away. Evolution is not an immediate thing; an organism thrown out because of the tides will
It is thought the moon was made for us.
Only one person thinks this, and their name begins with an "a", and ends with "nitawee."
happen was this. The Earth was forming. A really big thing
slammed into it. A really big piece came off of the Earth. It
became the Moon. It's why there is no iron in the moon, and all the other theories just fail. Sometimes life is seredipitous. Odds are it has to
be in order to form because life, as it turns out, is hard.
End of story
