Having checked, I see that it's probably impossible for the moon to *ever* leave orbit unless something pushes it out somehow (a major impact, very powerful engines, that sort of thing). The further away it moves from Earth, the smaller the effect that`s causing it to move away (which isn`t gravity). Apparently it will stop well before the moon gets far enough away to escape Earth.

250,000 years from now the Moon is expected to spin off from the Earths gravitational pull and our planet is expected to wobble as a result.
250,000 years from now the moon is expected to be ~9.5Km further away. ~1.000025 times as far away as it is now. What evidence do you have that it will "spin off from the Earths gravitational pull", since it will be experiencing almost identical pull from the Earth as it does now?

davymid: The difference is God gives me hope, I can pray to him, not just for me but for others as well, faith keeps people grounded and sane in an insane world.
Dinosaurs and UFOs aren't going to give anyone the kind of hope that faith provides.
Of course UFOs can - benevolent aliens with vast powers are no different to a god or gods in that respect. You can pray to them, you can hope that they will intervene and make everything lovely. What`s the difference?
