A "moon" is an object that orbits a larger object, not classified as a "star" in the mainstream. This is problematic though, as stars are young hot exoplanets in the general theory. This means the Earth, Jupiter, Uranus, etc. are all "moons" of the Sun. The word Moon originally just meant "month", where the phases of the Moon signaled the months, or simply passing of time in stages. This leaves us questioning the term "exomoons". It is suggested instead of going off the deep end as astronomers have done with big bang, black holes and dark matter, we correct the simple, important issues by using the general theory. This simple correction will allow us to be more consistent and accurate (scientific) with our terminology, as the original word "moon" was never intended to describe what is currently being discovered.
