If you're saying opposites attract, yes that happens between the Earth and the atmosphere, and the result is lightning, which is when those opposing charges partly equalize and try to resolve the electrical potential difference.
Now the land has magnetism and so does are planet via the core/mantle( giant battery) so if the atmosphere is charged in a certain way and the earth another, the land/crust would move similar to water beads on glass, that's my thoughts anyway.
Apparently you're not as familiar with mainstream theory as you think, because it says that parts of the crust did go down into the mantle millions of years ago, and in fact this is an ongoing process in subduction zones.

I am quite familiar with mainstream findings. But like I sad originally, not much if anything is known for sure just " theories". And for the crust to move like it is thought to (convection), the surface would have sank into the. " molten/ liquid mantle a few million years ago. My 2 cents anyway.
Why would a less dense material sink into a more dense material? Well, you can grab a piece of wood and force it underwater, which is sort of analogous to what is happening in subduction zones, but otherwise the less dense wood tends to float, as does the less dense crust.
The upper part of the mantle is composed mostly of peridotite, a rock denser than rocks common in the overlying crust.
