The Earth Is Growing?

Yeah Right? Next they'll be saying the earth isn’t flat.

In all seriousness though, I love this video below. When something questions conventional science the way this does, it just puts a smile on my face.


Now, as I said before, I love this video…but that in no way is my declaration as a follower of the expanding earth theory. There are many arguments towards the expanding earth theory, but overall the scientific community has dismissed it. If the majority of intelligent people are against something, then chances are they're right. Of course that's not to say that history hasn't proved that crap wrong in the past. If your not a visual person and couldn’t quite follow the video, your IQ is on par with Cutman and you should see a doctor, but non the less, here’s a brief explanation as to what the expanding earth theory is.

The Expanding Earth theory is an attempt to explain the position and movement of continents (continental drift) on the surface of the Earth. The expanded earth theory (and plate tectonics) incorporates the appearance of new crustal material at mid-ocean ridges, but the process of subduction is largely absent in this model. In this model the continents drifted away from each other because of further expansion at the rip-zones, where oceans currently lie. The result is an increasing radius of the earth.

The theory has a relatively small following today, compared with the almost universally accepted theory of plate tectonics, and is considered to be discredited by mainstream geologists. Many of those that remain are proponents of the ideas of the late Australian geologist S. Warren Carey. While Carey's ideas were popular for a time in the 1950s and 1960s, most workers in earth science believe that evidence collected over the last several decades supports a fixed size Earth, due to subduction, over the expanded Earth.

Here’s another video that questions plate tectonic theory.

Let me know what all you scientist out there think.

Individuals can be intelligent but people are stupid, especially intelligent people. I find it a little ironic that after reading so many of the things you think are credible and I think are total hoaxes, I find the expanding Earth theory very convincing and your best argument against it is that so many intelligent people dismiss it. The sun and the universe expand without gaining mass. Why shouldn't the Earth?

Did you know that intelligent people are more likely to be conned by con artists than average people? Did you know that most people, including intelligent people, tend to assume that a bold speaker knows more than a shy speaker? Thus the con artists know that all they need to do is speak boldly and they can dupe even intelligent people. That's where the name con man came from; it's short for "confidence man". To con is to speak with confidence and thereby decieve and the intelligent fall for it frequently.

Look past how lacking in boldness the person is and look at the evidence of his theory. The evidence is compelling.
