Stick to your own revisionist history, rather than attempting to revise the history of this forum. Brainfart was a lying cunt from the off, exposed as such, then whined when said exposition was complete and went into suicide-by-mod mode.
These are the facts of the case, and they are support by ALL the evidence.

Interested in DarkChilds observations about what is required to make Iron, I've been looking into what it takes to make lesser elements. Study of lunar rocks has drawn conclusions that water could be laced into solar wind constantly bombarding all planets with it's molecular properties. The Earth, which is currently about 35% Iron is... well... 35% iron. Interestingly enough, The corrosive properties of water and iron an interesting effect on iron... it causes it to expand. A natural process we are learning all about as old iron rods inside cement blocks expand causing the cement around it to crack and break apart as the iron expands as water ever so slowly makes it's way through the stone and interacting with the metal.

We understand a lot about what happens when a little bit of Lava spills out of a volcano and starts to interact with the ocean water. On the surface, the ocean water win pretty quick, the lava chemical composition quickly changes... and no surprise it expands to boot (See thermal Expansion). What about the battle under the crust... where water is slowly seeping into way throughout the mantle of the earth, what kinds of transformations are taking place. I looked... can't find much intel on that.

I don't think we would need all new calculators... We just have to be willing to admit that we don't know Jack.


Except the premise that "we don't know Jack" is incorrect.

For your proposed system to work (once again), we would have to throw out way too much of what we DO know.

Reverting to complete ignorance in order to make a pet hypothesis work is no way to do science.

:this: is why we don't know jack...

You are demanding over and over again that the expanding earth is somehow obligated to a sound undeniable mechanism before you will even look at the evidence that shows earth expansion... and yet the standard 'accepted' model is apparently on pretty questionable foundation.

We don't know jack, except for the fact that the Earth is expanding — something we know for sure, definitely and without a shadow of a doubt.

No. We don't know the earth is "definitely expanding". Why say something that isn't true? We can only examine the evidence that seems to indicate expansion and suggest that this is a better model than an earth that hasn't changed its size for nearly four billion years.

Based on the evidence of the next Atlantic ocean in it's infancy starting to form in Africa, I would side with the idea that the Earth is still expanding...

All right. So, we don't know jack, but we can still suggest that one model is better than another. Seems reasonable.

Expanding Earth models are based on the obvious observation that the continents come back together as you wind the earth down into a smaller sphere.

That observation is denied by physics saying it's not possible... yet... physics seems to have this trend of being wrong over and over again about the bigger questions.

Plate Tectonics was originally developed off an Expanding Earth model... only... it dropped the expansion idea as the mechanism for continental drift. As more and more evidence poured in that continents where once connected... they had to resort to coming up with a new mish mash of absolute horse shit to explain it.

Ah, excellent. We'll need a new ocean for when the Arctic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea disappear.

Because in some imaginary world the ratio of rifting vs subduction is 1 to 1 and has been that way for 4 billion years. Yet... 70% of the Earths surface is less then 250 million years old.

Can you think of a mechanism for how the ratio of rifting to subduction is not 1 to 1? Oh, yeah. The earth is expanding, therefore the ratio of rifting to subduction is not 1 to 1.

That this absurd expansion idea has to deal with its violations of conservation laws is of secondary importance, right LS? Let's stop calling it the 'expanding earth' hypothesis, then and focus on the 'trashing conservation laws' hypothesis. I believe in calling shit by its true name: Shit.
