Another Failed Lunar Origin Rescuing Device

Believers in cosmic evolution have no desire to admit that there is a Creator, and that their naturalistic origins stories have no value. Sometimes they seem like children playing a game, making up the story as they go along.

If secular cosmology worked, would it need four main stories about how the earth got its moon? Genesis 1:16 tells us that God made the moon, the lesser light, to rule the night. Secular formation tales cannot explain why it is beneficial to us. Now they want to retool the impact hypothesis.

Silvery Moonlight, John Atkinson Grimshaw, 1882
You know the story. After a night of binge drinking, a celestial object about the size of Mars crashed into our still-molten world, and the resulting devastation gave us a moon of just the right size. Secularists knew the tale was full of hooey, but to admit that there's a Creator is unthinkable. Now they're trying to salvage the impact story with other nonsense.
There have been four proposed mechanisms for the formation of the moon. Three are considered disproven: (1) the fission theory, in which the moon separated from the earth during rotation, (2) the capture theory, in which the earth captured a wandering moon, and (3) the condensation theory, in which the earth and moon formed from the condensation of the same dust cloud during the formation of the solar system. Another proposed mechanism is that the moon formed after a collision between the earth and a Mars-sized object that ejected debris out to the current orbit of the moon (figure 1). The debris coalesced forming the moon and the earth. This mechanism was accepted in the late 20th century, not because of the merits of the theory but because of the shortcomings of the other three theories. The ‘giant impact hypothesis’ has now dominated for over 30 years, but not without major problems for which revised models have been suggested.
