Pluto Is Not a Planet, but a Moon of Neptune
60 years ago, at 1947, the late Mohammed Ali Hassan Al-Hilly, said in his book: (The Universe and the Quran), that Pluto is not a planet but a moon of Neptune. Although the man was not an Astronomer, and even he did not graduate at any school, not even any primary school, but he was given wisdom from God –be glorified.
I have translated this book and put it at the free website: http://universeandquran.741.com
He said: " Astronomers, however, think that Pluto is a planet, but I say it is merely a moon of Neptune, and actually it is not a planet. "
[ The mistake of Astronomers about Pluto ]
" Question: Astronomers say that Pluto revolves around the sun opposite to the direction of the revolution of the other planets; is this true ?
Answer: I say that if Pluto was one of the planets, then it should be the biggest of the planets in size; because it is the farthest in distance from the sun than the rest of the planets, and it must revolve around the sun exactly like the revolution of the rest of the planets from right to left, then how could it happen that the revolution of Pluto is in the opposite direction ?
This is an obvious mistake; for the revolution of the planets around the sun is the result of the rotation of the sun around itself; so that it pulls the planets with it by the effect of its gravitation, then how is Pluto different from the rest of the planets ? Moreover, if the size of Pluto is equal to half that of the Earth, then it is one of the satellites which belong to the planets. If it was one of the planets, then its position would be between Mercury and Venus; because it is bigger than the first and smaller than the second, so how it can be one of the planets while it is the farthest from the sun, and moreover its size is half the size of the Earth ?
As regards to its revolution, [Pluto] revolves around Neptune just like how does our Moon revolve around Earth. And because the rotation of Earth around its axis is quicker than the revolution of Moon around it, we see the Moon revolving from left to right, and as such is Pluto seen by astronomers, but the truth is opposite of that.
[The translator – In summary:
1. If Pluto is a planet, it should be the largest planet, because it is the farthest from the sun. (but it is relatively small: it is bigger than Mercury and smaller than Venus.)
2. If Pluto is a planet, it should rotate in the same direction of the rotation of the sun around its axis, which is the same direction of revolution of the rest of the planets around the sun: from right to left. (but Pluto revolves in the opposite direction.)
3. Its orbit around the sun is fluctuant: i.e. one time it is nearer than Neptune to the sun, and another time it is farther than Neptune (this confirms that it revolves around Neptune so that one time it will be nearer and another time it is farther from the sun than Neptune is.
