NASA's GRAIL Unable to Prove Big Splat Theory

Could a collision of two cars create a new car?  Will a collision of two snowballs mid-air lead to a new snowball? Could the collision of two moons have led to the creation of our current moon billions of years ago?

The latter question has interested many scientists who hypothesized that in fact, our moon was formed by the collision of two moons billions of years ago.  The mission of GRAIL, NASA's probe to the moon, was meant to prove that hypothesis true.  It was unable to do so.

The GRAIL mission ended today in a crash- a planned crash landing now that the mission has been completed.

Once again, the truth of the Bible stands: God created the skies and all that is in them.  Genesis 1:14-19 states:
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
I am grateful to serve an awesome Creator!
