Plate tectonics (from the Vulgar Latin tectonicus, meaning "building") is a theory which describes the large scale motions of Earth's lithosphere. The theory builds on the older concepts of continental drift, developed during the first decades of the 20th century by Alfred Wegener, and seafloor spreading, developed in the 1960s.
Global tectonics was introduced a number of decades ago as an all embracing science that seeks to quantify and explain the Earth as a dynamic, interactive entity. As an outcome of this new philosophy we, in all our walks of life, have become accustomed to viewing the Earth globally, be it geology, ecology, climate, population, politics, and so on. Global tectonics however, in its strictest sense, must go beyond the present, or near present, i.e. human scale, and include the geological past, dating back to the formation of the Earth during the Archaean some 4,500,000,000 years ago, and all the Eons in between. In presenting Global Expansion Tectonics it must be realized that the global geological and geophysical database has only now reached the stage where any global tectonic hypotheses can be confidently quantified, challenged, and/or discarded.
The evidence is empirical and the conclusions are obvious—the Earth ~200-250 million years ago was a single planetary landmass ~40% smaller than it is today, and at that moment in geologic time there were NO OCEANS!
An elongated hollow tube is discovered in the crust at the site of the explosion. Even more interestingly, and profitably, the inside of the tube is completely lined with diamonds! Normally it is believed that diamonds and other such crystals take untold thousands of years to be created, yet in these cases they appear to have formed instantaneously.
With the new data in hand, the “plate tectonics ” model can now be discarded.
However, according to Maxlow and other sources, there are two main reasons for why the mainstream scientific and geological community does not accept an Earth Expansion Theory:
1. Matter is not “supposed to ” be able to expand in our current understandings of quantum physics.
2. The evidence needed to create a mathematical model that can accurately reproduce an Earth expansion process over time does not appear to exist.
The first point is effectively eliminated by the quantum models that we have discussed in this book, and Maxlow has provided the supportive evidence required for the second point.
As more and more information about the geophysics of the Earth is acquired, the Earth Expansion theory is only further enhanced in its credibility.

what a load of baloney. I have read that website well the 1st page of it and stopped. Nothing but half truths and pseudo science. I am not going to into the details as to what is what from that particular website as it would take too long and dosent really warrant my efforts. I find nothing wrong with the current understanding of the earths workings but if u like to give me specific examples instead of posting other peoples musings that would be more constructive as it can uncover misconceptions alot of people seem to have....

If the earth is only expanding why would the plates of the earths crust EVER impact eachother? Your entire theory sounds incredibly ignorant.
Why do we have mountain ranges and subduction zones?

1stly I noticed the OP's myopia in regards to accurately assessing temporal states! For example, they imply that the theory in question is "outdated" and yet its less than 150yrs old and then they imply that 250million yrs is just a "short span" of time! :shk:
2ndly I noticed that the main evidence that the OP presents to suppport their argument is the www.expanding-earth.org website and they post a quote directly from there to wit: " The evidence is empirical and the conclusions are obvious—the Earth ~200-250 million years ago was a single planetary landmass ~40% smaller than it is today, and at that moment in geologic time there were NO OCEANS!"
