Actualy this is not my theory. I was hoping for a confirmation or rejection just so I could know for sure. But I will argue a point with you to see if this theory makes sence. First of all, I don't think the gravitational pull is actualy decreasing. I said orbital energy. This may decrease the gravitational pull somewhat but I think this change is to small to even worry about. As orbital velocity (or whatever the correct term is) decreases, the Earth assumes a smaller orbit. Everytime you move your hand, the acceleration disturbances release gravity waves causing us to lose orbital energy and spiral our way into the sun. The combined effect of every person, animal, piece of dirt in the wind, even all the vibrating atoms, and the constant directional change of the Earth; set the date for about 10^63 years. (obviously a tremendous approximation)Theoretically we would crash into the sun (or burn up first) but the sun will be quite burned out in that period of time. The same process is happening to all the stars in our gallaxy, a seemingly never ending spiral to the center. Our little solar system spirals to the sun as the whole unit spirals to the center of the galaxy. Let me remind you that this is not my theory. To tell the truth I don't know if I fully believe in gravity waves.
