This is an old creationist argument. Most think that it is debunked, I don’t. In fact my approach to this will be different because I will be using known facts about this, and a different approach. And yes this will resurrect a evolutionist nightmare argument. Their first attempt to discredit this will be to call everyone stupid for even discussing it. Which basically means, they cannot really debunk it. Basic rule of thumb in debates with evolutionist is: When they start calling you names, it means they have nothing left to debate against your argument. It also means: The creationist just won the debate. It used to bother me, until I figured this out. So now I laugh when it happens. But let’s get down to business with discussing the resurrection of the Moon Dust Theory.
The earth just orbits the sun. The moon on the other hand, orbits our planet while “following” the earth’s orbit around the sun. As shown in the picture below:
The moon has gravity, which will attract dust. And the earth has gravity which attracts dust. And while dust is being pulled towards the earth, the moon travels through it as it orbits. But there is more. As the earth orbits the sun, the moon follows it and every orbit is in a new path full of dust. So basically, the moon is like a windshield wiper on a car. What your windshield collects, the wiper bunches it up and wipes it off. Now imagine that all the water your wiper wiped off actually stuck to your wiper, like dust sticks to the moon because of gravity. How long would it be, as you drive through a storm, that there would be so much water on your windshield that you could no longer drive?
