    Earth Used to Have TWO Moons

    Earth may once have had two moons - the one that shines at night today and a smaller companion, according to a new theory.
    A slow-motion collision between the two is believed to have created the mountainous highlands on the moon's far side, as debris from the second, smaller moon piled up.
    The side of the moon facing the Earth and the side facing away have strikingly different topographies.

    "Earth may once have had two moons" and "Earth used to have two moons", a pretty big difference there

    Would be cool if they found out for sure.

    Hitler stated that he inclined towards Hörbiger's theory (Heim: Hitlers Monologe im Führerhauptquartier 1941-1944, 25 January 1942, p.233) which he put as occurring 10,000 years before the present era.

    Hörbiger's theory of the second moon came about as follows.

    (1) The ruins of the ancient city of Tiahuanacu in Bolivia are at 12,500 feet.

    (2) An investigation into the topography of the Andes and the fauna of Lake Titicaca, together with chemical analysis of the lake and others on the same plateau, established that the plateau was at one time at sea level.

    (3) Tiahuanacu was built at the edge of Lake Titicaca, as the waterline discloses

    (4) Hörbiger postulated that the Earth had two moons. For some reason the second moon came out of orbit and circled very close to the Earth. This pulled the waters of the oceans towards the Equator: by its gravitational pull the second moon held, day and night, the level of the ocean at the altitude of Tiahuanacu: "The level of the ocean must have been at least 13,000 feet higher".

    (6) Then the second moon crashed into the Earth, the oceans receded to the poles, leaving the island with its megalithic city as a mountain above the sea bottom.

    Quoted from : H.S.Bellamy: Built before the Flood: The Problem of the Tiahuancu Ruins (1947), p.14.

    I think the tectonic plates and how mountains grow (and still do), was known in the 30s too.

    Second Moon Collision

    History of the Earth (Theia)

    Second Moon (look there also further into the articles of "Hypothetical bodies of the Solar System")


    The asteroid Cruithne is sometimes (but wrongly) also called Earth's second moon, because it orbits around earth too, but shows up only every 770 years or so.

    I doubt that the second moon can have "crashed into the Earth".

    Velikovsky's book "Earth in Upheaval" discounts the Hörbiger theory and puts forward an alternative idea for how the Andean region rose. Velikovsky is opposed to all Darwinian ideas of gradual change.

    No one claimed that. It collided with the Moon that's still there

    Theia was another planet, and there is actually good evidence for that Earth and Theia collided and melted together into one planet (and the debries became the moon). Earth is, like the entirely depleted of metals and a metallic core moon, quite an abnormal object, not only in our own solar system, but in all solar systems that are near enough to be examined (even if limited). All other planets and objects in our solar system except the sun are just dead, cold matter with no active core, only earth is still active, and this is not a result of earth's position in the live-zone of the solar system, else Venus for example and Mars would have to be active still too. This is however not the case, the activity comes from earth's own core. Earth is too old for that this energy stems from the time of the forming of the solar system. The fact that Earth is still alive is the very reason for why evolution could take place at all.


    The Alpen in Europe (Austria, Switzerland etc) are still growing, because the tectonic plates still move. The Japanese islands are a product of the tectonic plates movement too and a very young at that, the Himalaya still grows too etc, the effects of the movement (volcanos, earthquakes etc) can be seen everywhere.
