So, some caution might be in order before even long established theories are accepted as the "gospel truth", especially when some of the most famous scientists in the field start to question their own life's work.
A decay, also known as a disintegration of a radioactive nuclide, entails a change from an unstable combination of neutrons and protons in the nucleus to a stable (or more stable) combination. Radioactive atoms decay principally by alpha decay, negative beta emission, positron emission, and electron capture.
The type of decay determines whether the ratio of neutrons to protons will increase or decrease to reach a more stable configuration. How does the neutron-to-proton number change for each of these decay types?
The Moon’s gravity famously causes the tides, but the Moon’s electric field is effectively zero (but very interestingly, not exactly zero), and its magnetic field is random, scattered, and nearly non-existent.
The effect of gravity is much, stronger than the effect of magnetic fields, and even the effect of gravity between planets is tiny.
It is fine to hypothesize that similarities between different creatures are the result of common ancestry, but since such similarities have been and are often conflicting when compared with other features, it might be prudent to hold back a little when making conclusions about any sort of definite taxonomic classification model or even relationship.
The conclusions that are drawn from the evidence are often and have often been very much exaggerated to fit personal beliefs and biases.The bulk of those tiny forces is off-set by the fact that the Earth is free to move and fall through space (during free-fall is the only time you little force (specifically, the difference in the strength of the Earth’s gravity over the half-dozen feet of the tides).The Moon’s gravity causes tides, but effectively nothing else.Yes, even scientists have biases and favorite theories.No one, not even a scientist, likes to see a theory that has cost a great deal of money and much of one's personal time and effort, go up in smoke.The Sun’s gravity has about 40% of the Moon’s influence and Jupiter, which completely dwarfs the effects of all of the other planets combined, has about 1 two-hundred-thousandth of the Moon’s tidal effect.
