As to the Megalithic Yard, do you have any cite for that (that there was no such thing) or are we simply to take your word for it?
Douglas Heggie casts doubt on Thom's suggestion as well, stating that his careful analysis uncovered "little evidence for a highly accurate unit" and "little justification for the claim that a highly accurate unit was in use".
In his book Rings of Stone: The Prehistoric Stone Circles of Britain and Ireland. Aubrey Burl calls the megalithic yard "a chimera, a grotesque statistical misconception." 
Most researchers have concluded that there is marginal evidence for a standardized measuring unit, but that it was not as uniform as Thorn believed.
How what was made? The pyramid? Was it aliens?
I'll be back to show how it was made, what it applied to, terrestrially, and then we'll look at it's application also to the earth, moon, sun system and I'll present my final thesis, above and beyond what's already been presented.
You have pointed out some loose correlations and claim they demonstrate deeper and meaningful relationships.
I've clearly established a very interesting and unique earth-moon-sun configuration from a host of angles and perspectives including how many of it's design parameters were embedded into the design of the Great Pyramid.
In your opinion the Universe was divinely created. Do you have the right to tell others how to think and how to interpret the data, how to force it to fit your paradigm? What are you, the ultimate authority on God's will? Is this the middle ages?
In your opinion it's all bogus, but do you have the right to tell others what to think and how to interpret the data, what you are a gatekeepers for the unintelligent universe by chance theory?
No extraordinary evidence has been put forward. Just some loose correlations in which someone of faith sees significance. Others are free to come to their own conclusions about the discussion of those loose correlations. I always thought that ATS was about the application of critical thought.
Extraordinary evidence has been put forward, but for some reason, mostly due to an anti-God or anti-ID bias, you don't see it, and on your authority alone others are to write it all off as nonsense? Are you kidding me? That's not what ATS is supposed to be about at all.
In looking at your provocative topic and applying critical thought it can be seen that where you see "extraordinary evidence" there is none. Your "evidence" can only be seen when actual data is forced through a filter of faith and so is not evidence except for the faithful. But the truly faithful shouldn't require evidence, should they?
The simple yet effective motto of our membership is "deny ignorance", which signifies an effort to apply the principals of critical thought and peer review to the provocative topics covered within.

I'm new to this forum, and you'll note that I'm the first Christian "believer" who isn't arguing creationism as in "pop goes the world", the elephant, giraffe, man etc., forget the dinosaurs, and all that nonsense,
"Therefore, do not be afraid, little ones, nor let your hearts be troubled and be of good cheer, because it pleased our father to share his kingdom with all his children." (said with a big loving charming authentic smile)

My contention in regards to the origin of the moon is that it is a very STRANGE object, and an unnatural one at that, which to seed life and planetary evolution in favor of life would have had to have been introduced at the appropriate time into the accretion disk of the galactic formation, to assist an appropriate candidate planet in realizing the object of creating life.
Whether an ancient ANCIENT stage 3 alien civilization or God or both working in tandem, it's still proof of intelligent design, and how did those ancient aliens evolve in the first place anyway, to become agents of creation?
So I'm not discounting the possibility that the moon is an astro-engineered object, as a tried and tested cornerstone for a sure foundation, but it stretches the imagination to try to fathom where this "seed of life" came from in the first place and how it ended up in this particular location in the galaxy and solar system formation resulting in the perfect tilt and wobble equilibrium balancing that is responsible for life on earth, while perfectly reflecting the sun in visible diameter and, at the same time, squaring the circle in terms of it's geometrical relationship to the earth.
Most significant moons in the Solar System are tidally locked with their primaries, since they orbit very closely and tidal force increases rapidly (as a cubic) with decreasing distance. Notable exceptions are the irregular outer satellites of the gas giant planets, which orbit much farther away than the large well-known moons.
February 25, 2000 -- Astronomers are increasingly convinced that supermassive black holes lie at the centers of most large galaxies. It's a classic case of truth being stranger than fiction. Gigantic disks of gas -- called accretion disks -- swirl around central black holes that weigh in at millions or even billions of solar masses. As gas in the accretion disk falls into the hole it heats up and glows so brightly in x-rays that we can detect them a billion light years away. The cores of these systems, called active galactic nuclei (AGNs), outshine all of the stars in the host galaxy by factors of 10 to 1000.
About 10% of all AGNs are stranger still. They produce narrow beams of energetic particles and magnetic fields, and eject them outward in opposite directions away from the disk at nearly the speed of light. When one of these beams is pointed toward Earth, it looks especially bright and astronomers call it a blazar. Among all AGNs, blazars can be detected over the widest range of frequencies, from radio waves to gamma rays.
Many aspects of blazars remain a mystery. What accelerates the material in the jets to relativistic speeds? How are the jets collimated? What are they made of?
The answers to some of these questions about distant galaxies may lie right here in our own Milky Way, in the binary star system Cygnus X-3.
"Cygnus X-3 is a black hole or a neutron star that's accreting matter from an companion star," explains Mike McCollough of the NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center. "Because of the deep gravity well, a huge amount of energy can be released in x-rays and gamma-rays. It's also a very bright radio source that undergoes massive flares from time to time."
During an intense flare in 1997, McCollough and colleagues made a high-resolution radio map of Cygnus X-3 using the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), a continent-sized radio interferometer.
"When we looked at the images, lo and behold, there was definitely a one-sided radio jet, about 50 milliarcseconds long," recalled McCollough. "Two days later it extended to 120 milliarcseconds and then it disappeared. This likely makes Cyg X-3 a galactic blazar -- a jet source where we were looking straight down the jet."
10 “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” 6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.
7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.[a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
19 The Jews who heard these words were again divided. 20 Many of them said, “He is demon-possessed and raving mad. Why listen to him?”
21 But others said, “These are not the sayings of a man possessed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”
And what's wrong with a newfound appreciation for what we have here? Why must it be "insignificant" especially since we're here to enjoy it and close the circle in observation and co-creation?

Also you said "unique earth-moon-sun configuration" prove to me it is unique, you can not because we have not seen the whole universe, heck it may be really common you nor I can prove it.edit on 5-6-2013 by boymonkey74 because: (no reason given)
