My God. Why do liberals ask such inane "questions" seeking only to incite controversy? The problem is that these liberals, who profess academic superiority and are confident that their views lie on the factual "high ground" of political debate, are quite the opposite. Most of the views of "liberalism" are fairly "pedestrian" and simple concepts which captivate the imagination of the gullible longing for a simple "explanation" of events which can satisfy the zeal of the uninitiated for an absolute, and
"factual" answer which they can relate to their friends and form a foundation for a set of "beliefs".

The problem is that the set of "beliefs" has failed to withstand even minimal academic inquiry. The liberal mind, while simple, is superior to an imbecile and is will cling and retort the same pre-package sound bytes provided by their handlers, despite the lack of reason and evidence to suppor the initial presumptions. With the new found discovery of "truth", the liberal will rejoice and profess the newfound "truth" that has been implanted via their handlers. The problem is that the "truth" is actually false and those who embrace these "facts" simply lack the intellectual capability to dissect and question the validity of the information dispensed by their handlers. Thus the fertile fields of the "useful idiots" are available for those with actual superior intelligence to embrace and disseminate the marching orders of thier marxist handlers with the firm conviction that they are actually promoting the "will of the people" and are disseminating the "good will" of mankind.

My hope is that the average liberal will actually become more intelligent, realize the fallacious nature of the "information" they have been provided, and actually be able to make rational decisions. I fear that I will be waiting a long, long time.
First of all: this is the Science & Tech forum, pal.
You should take your liberal-bashing claptrap to the Politics forum.

Secondly: Whew! You can say less with more words than an entire flock of Palins! Impressive!

Didja have to go to school for that?

Oh yeah: The dominant consensus among astronomers & cosmologists is that our moon was formed very early in the Earth's life, most likely as the result of flung-off matter from the impact of a massive meteor. The fragments then coalesced due to gravitation & centrifugal forces as they orbited the Earth.
So, yeah, about 4.45 billion years is pretty close to an accurate age for our Moon.
