Is the continuous expansion of the earth’s crust creating under sea fault movements? Could these movements be the cause of the Boxing Day tsunami

Uhm, no. We know how to measure the size of the Earth... in fact, we've known how to measure it since the time of Aristophanes (about 600 BC.)
It's stayed consistant.
The Earth doesn't need a diet because it's not growing.
Internationally recognised Western Australian geologist Dr James Maxlow says that conservative wisdom is based on the hypothesis that the earth
has maintained a constant size during its geological evolution. Instead, his research has shown that the size of the earth 1600-million years ago
was little more than one-fifth of its dimensions today. Dr Marlow’s view is that growth over millions of years has weakened the Earth’s crust
causing fractures which lead to natural disasters such as the Asian tsunami and other seismic events.
A google on various science paper sites shows that his PhD was bought from one of those "get-your-degree-in-2-weeks" universities and is not a true
PhD. As a PhD in the sciences, you *have* to publish in order to get that degree.
And honestly, how is it that the Earth's supposed to be expanding? Demons at the center with sippy straws, blowing frantically to put air into the
core and push the mantle out? Too much cholesterol intake and not enough exercise? It's been eating comets and we haven't noticed?
There's the other tip-off. Internationally recognized scientists have all their papers hosted by their universities or their research facilities.
They don't use free Geocities websites.
