Because there is no problem. All shadows in this image are confined to within 90 degrees, just sampling at random you'll get quite a few that line up
within 5 degrees.
That's all you've demonstrated. Most of your lines were not very carefully drawn and done by hand and so you've tended to group them to a position
you've already determined. I've shown that terrain variation can account for this and so you can't continue just asserting that you're right
without showing some evidence for it.
Do you not see a difference between these two situations? Both senarios appear to be pointing in the same direction.
I'm not even sure what you're trying to portray here. Yes, if you ignore the shadows that don't match, quite a lot of them match, that's all that
you are doing here.
This is getting very tiresome and so this is probably going to be my last post on the topic. Either spend the time and effort to provide a compelling
case by actually carefully (or better, automatically) drawing these lines and showing that they cannot be due to terrain. As it stands I haven't even
bothered to include some of the major craters visible and with the most subtle variation I've matched the most distorted of the shadows.
