What do you base this on? In relation to tidal activity: Look at the difference in size of the earth compared to the moon and read what it says about tides. Does it seem odd that a small object so far away can have such a centrifugal effect? http://csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr161/lect/time/tides.html Is a relationship the result of wanting to see some relationship and merely coincidental? Why cant the earth by nature of its own movement create tides? unaided and completely self contained. Look at it as a basketball and a tennis ball. what possible effect can the tennis ball have on this much larger object and from so far away? http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...US311&sa=N Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
