Well, I heard a newscaster on one of the local stations a while back explain that of course the moon affects us. It causes the tides, she said, and we're 98% water. You can't argue with logic like that.

3. Everything that happens, happens at a particular moment in time. Since there is only one moment in time, at a time, a lot of happenings have to share a moment.

4. Unless one goes to secondary motives trajectory isn't coincidental said the operationalist.

Don't care to. The moon doesn't affect us, gravity causes tides.
