i read the earth was pretty chaotic before someone smashed the moon EXACTLY in place
Not really. Jupiter actually may send more asteroids our way than not.
I believe I had read in the past that its Big Red (Jupiter) who runs most of the interference for us.
For asteroids and short period comets, Jupiter’s gravitational agitation shoves more our direction, but for the ones that would potentially hurt is the most, the long period comets, Jupiter does provide some relief.
