I have not really seen on the internet anyone to consider the hypothesis that the Moon could be a planet like Mercury, and not formed by the impact of a smaller planet with Earth,wich is the theory now embraced by scientists. Assumptions come and go and never something is set to be forever.
Nobody thinks that the similarity between the two bodies can demonstrate that the Moon is made independently of the Earth and could be attracted to Earth's gravity in the past, thus changing the entire evolution of this planet making occuring life, possibly.
I do not know if you agree with what I say now, but the theory that the Moon was formed from the impact of a smaller planet with the Earth, to me it seems a nonsense.
Mercury is similar in appearance to the Moon: it is heavily cratered, has no atmosphere and no moons. However, unlike the Moon, it has a large iron core that generates a magnetic field about 1% of that of the Eart's magnetic field.Surface temperatures varies from approximately -183 ° C to 427 ° C.
