Its a keeper!

Joe G: For ONE, the earth/ moon system would fall into the Sun without any counter-balance- we need that external pull to help keep us in place.
Obviously you dont have much of a physics background. And obviously all you have are why questions that 5 year olds ask.

Scientist AND design detector! Get that on FSTDT.

Joe tries to explain the physics of orbiting bodies:

What happens when you stretch out a piece of fabric, say a bed sheet, and then put one heavy bowling ball on it and then try to get two much smaller marbles to stay a specified distance- relatively close- away from the bowling bowl?

You need a way to keep the bowling bowl from making too big of a dent, which is difficult to do wrt ONE heavy object. If the fabric is too tight the bowling ball will go all over the place.

:D :D :D

Words fail me....
