No snark; I don't understand this:

If the moon formed from debris created by the Theia impact, the chemical composition of the moon should differ from that of Earth. But that's not the case. "The moon has a very distinctive composition," Lock said. "If you look at major rock-forming elements, the moon looks exactly the same as the Earth."

Is that farked up and contradicting itself, or is my reading comprehension down the tubes?

What am I supposed to take away?

what I get:

1) If the moon formed from debris created by the Theia impact, the chemical composition of the moon should differ from that of Earth. -- why? if it's debris from Earth, shouldn't it be Earth-like?

2) the chemical composition of the moon should differ from that of Earth. But that's not the case. "The moon has a very distinctive composition," --if it's "not the case" that the moon's composition differs from Earth's, then it does NOT have a distinctive composition, does it?

3) "The moon has a very distinctive composition," Lock said. "If you look at major rock-forming elements, the moon looks exactly the same as the Earth."  -- again, see 2, above

what am I doing wrong?

This older article explains that more fully I believe.

Piffle! Everyone knows there is no Moon!

I see a hole in this theory.

It's not a theory, it is a hypothesis.

So what is it? A projection like the bat signal?

Since the Moon is an artificial satellite, hypothesis is Bullshiat.
