:) My neighbor's four year old son, Alex, was outside looking at the sky with me the other night. He noticed the quarter moon directly above us, and in astonishment tugged on my shirt and said, "Miss Leslie, Jesus cut the moon in half."

LOL That's because the Moon is made of cheese, so obviously it's easily cut in half :)

And probably tastes like chicken!

Isn't it awesome to hear the perceptions of the young when it comes to astronomy (or for anything for that matter).

Maybe he said "cheeses", not "jesus"!?

You can see the Moon's not round though from this picture:

The moon is not made of cheese and it is round. Any suggestion to the contrary is just stupid!

It is well known among the enlightened that the moon is in fact a big, pupiless eye that blinks very slowly, hence the phases. Really, and you call yourselves science enthusiasts!

I still remember my son looking at the moon when it was out in the daytime. He was very confused and asked me if someone got the time wrong up there.

Awww, bless :rolleyes:

I remember my older brother trying to convince me that stilton was 'moon cheese'. Siblings can be so cruel :P

Hey Dan Luna,

I've been looking at those flag symbols as well and there are lots of them that have a "star" inside the "moon" or crescent of the moon. It's odd that you can find that kind of imagery everywhere around the world. I've read suggestions that they don't depict the moon at all.

Cheers.

This one's even more worrying if you've been told the world isn't flat:

Did you just leave Antarctica out? Its not just flat, it's incomplete, maybe if you turn it over?

Cheers.

Well, I don't remember where I read it exactly, but there are few images in this pdf file that can be found here www.thunderbolts.info
You need go through a lot of images until you see a number of "polar configuration" snapshots by Dave Talbott (from the Saturn hypothesis). Basically he thinks that what we see in all the flag symbols is the planet Saturn, with radiant Venus in front of it, going through phases.
Hope you can find it, I plan to do some googling, but if, after reading the info, you decide it is all crap anyway, I won't.
Gee, do I make sense here? Anyway, have fun.

Cheers.
