icon Shorter

Okay, correct me if I'm wrong, please.

  1. The earth continues to circle the sun at the same rate.
  2. The moon continues to circle the earth at the same rate.
  3. However because the rotation of the earth is slowing (hypothesis; magnetic pull of twelfth is influencing our sphere) while the moon is keeping the same cycle, that causes the lunar months to be shorter.

Think about this, if the Earth's rotation slows down, then the Lunar month gets shorter. Not longer because the moon's orbit is not slowing down. Our orbit around the sun is not slowing, just the rotation.
