Moon Coincidences?
The things that are most impressive as far as I'm concerned are a couple of moon-based coincidences - that the moon covers the sun so well during a total solar eclipse, and that 28 days give or take is the moons orbit round the earth and that 28 days is a human menstrual cycle, give or take.
This isn't evidence for an Abramic creator - in fact it isn't evidence for any kind of creator really - but I think its the best evidence there is that there might be a creator rather than just boring blind chance.
I accept that there are a hundred cool coincidences related to just about anything you care to name - but I think there is some special resonance here that links the sun, the moon, human biology - that is pretty impressive.
As an aside, does anyone else know any cool moon-related coincidences that might sit along side these nicely?

Re: Moon Coincidences?
Hey, that's fun. Your first points are both very good - however, I don't think either of them necessarily puncture the moon-related fun. The fact that the moon is only the "perfect" distance away from the earth when there is sentient life on board to enjoy it doesn't necessarily mean that it is necessarily dismissable as just blind chance.
Also the evolutionary narrative for menstrual cycles is ultimately just that isn't it, a narrative?
Thanks for getting back to me with good points - I've been away for ages and its nice to post again.
