The archaeological record's earliest data that speaks to human awareness of the stars and ‘heavens’ dates to the Aurignacian Culture of Europe, c.32,000 B.C.
Many of these lunar calendars were made on small pieces of stone, bone or antler so that they could be easily carried

There is no record of the Moon in ancient civilization dating over 6,000 years ago because it wasn't here at that time.
Astronomers and Egyptologists have searched hard for ancient Egyptian eclipse records without any success.
Their interpretation of the Moon being the round object always laying in a boat/banana shaped object is a joke. They don't know what they're talking about.
The Moon was NOT here over 6,000 years ago period!

During ancient times, it was never as important to the Egyptians as the sun, though the moon was considered by them to be the nightly replacement of the sun. Within all of the known creation accounts, the Sun is always paramount. However, in the relationship between the Moon and the stars, the lunar god can be designated as "ruler of the stars".
The Egyptologists may have inappropriately interpreted the Egyptian hieroglyph symbol Akhet as the "horizon". In this article, the author attempts to demonstrate that the hieroglyph symbol Akhet stands for "solar eclipse" and not "horizon". He also puts forth the idea that the ancient Egyptians believed that the solar eclipse was the heavenly abode of the Sun. The author goes on to show that Karnak may have been a representation on Earth of the Sun's heavenly habitation, the solar eclipse, and that the pylons of Egyptian temples were gigantic representations of the sign Akhet.
The ancient Egyptians had observed the daily motion of the Sun from east to west. The ancient Egyptians also mentioned a habitation of the Sun in the sky (11). This habitation was in the Old Kingdom (2700-2200 BC) believed to be an island in the waters of the sky called akhet (12). To me [an astronomer], this clearly was depicted from the total solar eclipse. We shall see shortly why. Later, the akhet became the place of sunrise and sunset. Hence previous Egyptologists interpreted the symbol akhet as the horizon (13). I believe there is an alternative interpretation that may have been overlooked previously. There is a most spectacular celestial phenomenon in which the Sun rises and sets in the sky, a total solar eclipse. The sign akhet represents something more spectacular than the daily sunrise and sunset.
In this study we shall see that the symbol akhet does not mean horizon. Instead it stands for 'eclipse' and some temples were a representation of the Sun's abode seen in the sky (during an eclipse).
I've just turned 33 1/2 today. I've heard my times that that was the age of Jesus when he died on the cross. I've had many spiritual experiences happen to me in my life. It seems my life is very directed. I've tried hard to meet and hook up with a lady since I was 18, but it seems like a higher force controls peoples minds if someone was meant to stay as a virgin. Since I'm attractive, smart, and understanding, it should be proof that there is a higher force at work to not let me settle down or at least hold a relationship. Someone predicted over 30 years ago that I would live in a certain small city in the southeast and that happened. I've even tried various psychic help, but the directed outcome still did not lead to a girlfriend/boyfriend relationship. It's just been "only friends" for me for some reason. For the past week, I've even been going through various body pains that I haven't even had in the past 10 years. These pains have been coming at me right out of the nowhere. Do you think that my future will at least involve leadership like Jesus? By the way, my middle name is Christopher so I do have the "Christ" name in my name. Also, my first name is Joseph. Joseph of the Bible probably was a virgin for at least a while and probably had similar leadership qualities as Mary did.

From a woman's perspective - I wouldn't sleep with a man that thought he was still a virgin because he thought he was to be a 'leader like Jesus' - that right there could be the reason you still are one. Kinda creepy. Sorry, but I'm aiming for honesty.
It has more logic than you'll ever understand.
Your post has no logic at all...
Now explain exactly why life wouldn't be able to exist on a moonless Earth.
do you have any idea the effects the moon has on earth? Without the moon i doubt life would exist!

I highly doubt an alien spaceship can circle the earth, and cause tides.
