Did you know that the moon is moving away from us? When astronauts went to the moon, they left mirrors on the surface so that laser light could be sent to the moon, bounce off the mirror, and return to the earth. We can measure the time this round trip takes so accurately that the exact distance to the moon can be measured within a fraction of an inch. The moon is moving away from us at about 2 inches/year (called lunar regression). This means the moon is getting farther away each year, and as we go back in time, the moon was closer to the earth. At this measured rate of recession, the moon would have been touching Earth less than 2 billion years ago.

It is commonly taught by evolutionists that the moon exists because material spun off of the earth as it was forming about 4.5 billion years ago. Astronomer Edouard Roche long ago calculated that from Earth’s surface to 11,500 miles out, any object would be torn to pieces by Earth’s gravitational forces. Therefore, the belief that the moon came from material originating from the earth has enormous problems because it would have been torn to pieces. 

Also, if the moon were truly 4.5 billion years old, it would be much farther out in space than the distance we see today. God created the moon on Day 4 less than 10,000 years ago - which means it has only moved a mere ½ mile since creation. The simplest explanation is that the moon is not that old. The moon’s distance from Earth testifies that it is young.
