    When Worlds Collided.

    Heaven and PreEarth were planets, a binary system orbiting the Sun. This happy arrangement continued for countless years, until, some unfortunate circumstance caused Heaven to collide with PreEarth, forming the Earth.

    We investigate the evidence that the Earth is the child of such a collision. We show that the planets Heaven and PreEarth were of similar size and mass. We show that many of the Earth's topographical features, such as mountain chains and ocean basins, were created during the collision. We show that certain hard to explain features of the Earth, such as its magnetic field, can now be more easily understood. And, in establishing all this, we uncover a new theory on the origin of the Moon.

    Much of PreEarth's crust survived the impact and is today the continental crust of the Earth. Although broken and contorted, giant pieces of the ancient crust acted as ships floating on a newly molten interior, insulating, and protecting, life from the fires below. Heaven itself, together with its crust, if it had one, disappeared into the interior of the PreEarth, never to be seen again. If we put the broken pieces of PreEarth's crust back together, we obtain the following map.



    This map is a flat representation of part of a globe. Hence, some distortion is inevitable....

    Ok, I see a map that roughly corresponds to the continental arrangement of Pangaea, but what about the supercontinents before Pangaea, such are Rhodinia? Geologic evidence does not fit a binary system hypothesis.

    Most of this is right. The current theory of the Moon's origin is that a planet about the size of Mars struck the Earth, and in all the chaos part of it broke off to become the Moon.

    This part would defy probability. In the first place, anytime two planets of similar mass collide, the friction involved in the collision will super heat them, effectively turning their outer surface into molten lava. Even if the original planet's surface survived somehow and stayed on the surface of the planet, it wouldn't look very much like it had originally.
