I am left wondering how you came to this conclusion while I have not. Thanks in advance. Also, here is a video of Manly's philosophy of life.
Jordan Maxwell said it in one of his videos (about creating icke, and receiving all of MPH's research material)
it seems there's an agenda to demonize the moon..?
after the OP posted that slew of material on the moon i posted how that is all a rehash of Gurdjieff's work.
it starts to come across like.. they're going to eventually try and pull a cosmic fast-one on us.. something's going to happen and they're going to try and convince us it's all gone down a certain way..
sometimes i wonder, like someone else pointed out, the moon and the sun are sized and placed so that they eclipse one other (from our earth perspective) THIS ISN'T JUST COINCIDENCE ..the moon reflects passive light from the sun (at night) it's an encoded female archetype.. sometimes i wonder.. is this just another level of the assault on the divine feminine?edit on 22-5-2013 by UNIT76 because: ramblings and memories

every single planet spins. even the sun spins, but our moon doesn't spin.
It's also at the exact required distance for it to eclipse the sun.
The odds of those two things occurring are astronomical. We're most likely that 1 in a billion planet that has a moon that does those two things....but I wouldn't call people dumb for considering alternative theories about the moon.
That's not exactly so. First of all, the moon DOES spin. It's rotation rate is such that one full rotation about it's axis takes the same amount of time as one full orbit of the Earth. The net result of that is that it always has the same side facing Earth. If it did not spin, we would see different sides of it depending on where it was in it's orbit.
There IS a scientific explanation for that, based upon the mathematical work of Kepler and Roche. It's called "tidal locking", and Mercury has the same property - it always has the same side facing it's primary, which is the Sun.
Without getting into all of the mathematical details, the basics are that there is a certain distance at which the gravity of a primary will "drag" the rotation of a secondary until an equilibrium is established between rotation and orbit, causing tidal locking. Likewise, the presence of the moon is slowing the rotation of the Earth infinitesimally every year, because the tides produce a slight bulge in the Earth which the moon drags around as the Earth rotates. The drag is slowing the Earth's rotation.
I've actually wondered this also. Look at all the pyramid-shapes that are representations of the male-side but you hardly ever see the opposite unless it is with a 'male' triangle part stuffed in as well
