Wow... shocked at the number of people who actually read the title. And thanks so much for the first 9 vote... gave me hope for this one.

No joke with the title.

Is the moon really old?

[Mar. 9th, 2009 11:57:29 PM]

This immediately raises the question as to whether the earth-moon system could be 4.5 billion years old, as most evolutionists insist. Would we not have lost our moon a long time ago? Using the appropriate differential equation (which takes into account the fact that the force of gravity varies with distance), Dr DeYoung shows that this gives an upper limit of 1.4 billion years.

What a great moon shot. Looks almost egg-like. I love the border too.

The way the lines run across it almost looks like a huge orange

The moon appears to be in a bit of an egg shape. Maybe some lens distortion... not sure.

Nice idea but a bit more focus would have been good

10,000?? Nice image...way off on it's age. Maybe that was a joke?

Given that the moon is about 4.5 billion years old; you made me think about the significance of 10,000 years - Given this equates to about the beginning of civilisation, I wonder if this also marks the first evidence of the moon being thought of as beautiful.

Since beauty is subjective then something can't be beautiful until it is perceived as being so - thanks for the thought provoking title and image.

Actually about 4.6 billion years :)

Decent image of the moon - I love the details you got. I assume the title is a joke? Or an attempt at controversy. I can't decide whether to include the title in my vote. It seems that you want me to ...

or maybe 4.5 Billion years. You know - give or take.
