i've read this theory more than once and it seems perfectly possible. if a large body struck the earth it wouldn't merely 'stick' to the planet,
it would break apart and possibly fall onto the planet and some of it would bounce back into space. since earth was on a set orbit at the time, it
will still be moving along, but the asteroid or whatever it was remains' would lock itself around earth cause of gravity, eventually enough mass
would form in the debris cloud it would begin to form the moon. through tidal changes between the new moon, and the sun, some material would fall onto
the moon, and some would fall onto earth or burn up in it's atmosphere. evidence of earth can and has been found in the moons rocks and support this
theory. earth will have little or no traces of the moon forming body because of the shifting and change of our environment.
