They say that Jupiter is our shield for asteroids and the like.
If that were the case, it would be interesting that the moon would only protect a small area of the explosed planet earth at any given time.

Even today I still can't completely follow the tidal explanation so I'm basically having to take some mathematician's word for it.
Mathematicians and physicists don't have an aswer for the tides. What confuses many people is why there is a high tide on the earth, on the side opposite from the moon (called a distal tide). Most of us can visualize the high tide closest to the moon, but have a hard time grasping any explanation for the far tide. Goofy people try to give goofy reasons for it. But, it remains a serious scientific question.
The answer appears to be based on an alternative understanding of gravity. If you look at gravity as simply electrical attraction between bodies, it explains several things:
1. distal tides (well, tides in general)
2. lightning (arcing)
3. magnetic fields in spinning bodies (such as the earth, the sun, other planets, etc.)
4. electrical current in the ground of spining planets in the east-west vector
5. possibly "anti-gravity"
and so on...
Hey that's interesting, thanks.
