David Icke visited the idea that the moon is not a heavenly body but that it is some sort of construct a hollowed out planetoid. I let this idea sit for several months, but this morning decided to look into it a bit. On of the things Icke mentioned something I had never considered is that what are the chances that the moon just happens to exactly cover the sun during an eclipse? (the odds are astronomical) I came across a 2006 interview with one of the authors of the book Who Built The Moon? (Christopher Knight and Alan Butler) who presents a few thoughts on this idea. "New Dawn recently spoke with Christopher Knight about his controversial new book and his astonishing conclusions. NEW DAWN: All of mankind's visits to the Moon have not answered some of the most basic questions about its origin and importance. Your new book Who Built the Moon? brings to light some extraordinary facts about the Moon, and comes to a mind-blowing conclusion about its origin. Could you briefly outline some of these little known and ignored facts? CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT: The Moon sits very close to the Earth yet it is widely regarded as the strangest object in the known universe. The book lists the strangeness of the Moon, which includes the fact that it does not have a solid core like every other planetary object. It is either hollow or has a very low-density interior. Bizarrely, its concentration of mass are located at a series of points just under its surface which caused havoc with early lunar spacecraft The Moon is not only extremely odd in its construction; it also behaves in a way that is nothing less than miraculous. It is exactly four hundred times smaller than the Sun but four hundred times closer to the Earth so that both the Sun and the Moon appear to be precisely the same size in the sky which gives us the phenomenon we call a total eclipse. Whilst we take this for granted it has been called the biggest coincidence in the universe. Furthermore, the Moon mirrors the movement of the Sun in the sky by rising and setting at the same point on the horizon as the Sun does at opposite solstices. For example, this means the Moon rises at midwinter at the same place the Sun does at midsummer. There is no logical reason why the Moon mimics the Sun in this way and it is only meaningful to a human standing on the Earth ND: Your conclusion is there are more than enough anomalies about the Moon to suggest it is not a naturally occurring body and was quite possibly engineered to sustain life on Earth. How did you reach this conclusion? CK: Not only is the Moon an apparently impossible object, it has some unique benefits for us humans. It has been nothing less than an incubator for life. If the Moon was not exactly the size, mass and distance that it has been at each stage of the Earth's evolution there would be no intelligent life here. Scientists are agreed that we owe everything to the Moon. It acts as a stabilizer that holds our planet at just the right angle to produce the seasons and keep water liquid across most of the planet. Without our Moon the Earth would be as dead and solid as Venus. ND: If the Moon is an artificial construct, what are your theories on who or what built it, and why? CK: In Who Built the Moon? we explain that we could not come to any other conclusion than the Moon is artificial. Because it is certain that it is 4.6 billion years old that raises some interesting points. Another factor was the obvious message that has been built into the Moon to tell us it's artificial. The question of why the Moon had to be built is easy to answer: To produce all life, especially humans. As to who did it well that's a lot tougher!... David Icke relates"I've found the Zulu legends to be the profoundly accurate in the way that they use symbolism to describes very profound scientific truths so, after I'd come up with all this stuff, I called Credo Mutwa, the Zulu shaman and the official historian for the Zulu nation, when I'd come up with all this stuff and asked him to tell me what are the Zulu legends of the moon. Credo Mutwa tells me that the Zulus believe that the moon comes from far, far away and it was hollowed out like the yolk taken out of an egg and it was rolled across the heavens by two reptilian entities, which he gives Zulu names for. But when he describes these entities, they are a mirror of Enki and Enlil, the supposed leaders of the Anunnaki described in the Sumerian tablets from what we now call Iraq going back thousands of years. He also went onto say that the Reptilians, Chitaulis he calls them, warned people that if they didn't do as they said, they would move the moon and cause devastation."
