Wether earth is changing energy into matter, or we are getting matter fall down on us from space which over time builds up to a considerable ammount as well, adding mass to earth.
The Earths crust continues to change, and this is easily explained by the expanding Earth theory.
This influx is well known but has been grossly underestimated and dismissed as insignificant—despite massive amounts of meteoric, geologic and organic evidence found in immense coal, oil, and limestone deposits, plus deep overburdens, on every continent and in all ocean sediments.
but they should consider coal beds that were formed from trees in the Carboniferous (~360 to ~290 Ma) but are now buried under deep overburden that accreted later.
The huge fossilized tree trunks found in the Petrified National Forest near Holbrook in eastern Arizona are additional evidence of mass from solar energy.
A tectonic plate (also called lithospheric plate) is a massive, irregularly shaped slab of solid rock, generally composed of both continental and oceanic lithosphere. Plate size can vary greatly, from a few hundred to thousands of kilometers across; the Pacific and Antarctic Plates are among the largest. Plate thickness also varies greatly, ranging from less than 15 km for young oceanic lithosphere to about 200 km or more for ancient continental lithosphere (for example, the interior parts of North and South America).
Or else you utterly fail to understand science.
There is considerable evidence the Moon is expanding, and Mars as well.
That is a huge amount of mass that somehow disappeared. Even if the upper mantle absorbed that mass it should have flowed somewhere. We should see a huge pile up of mass as the N American plate plowed across the pacific, but instead off the west coast we see this smooth plain. It doesn't make any sense at all.

These aren't my theories, these are the theories of numerous geologist who went to school and obtained advanced degrees. All I am doing is explaining why I agree with their theories.
All your beliefs are based on a competing theory, which you can't even begin to explain, which demonstrate that you don't have a clue what you are talking about.
Actually, they are posted as representatives of the institutions, which normally means this was approved by those institutions.
Maybe you should take a course in reading comprehension. It is 34 original members in 16 countries.
There are 16 people in the first link. Nowhere is there a university supporting this claim.
The reason I made this search was to look for evidence that the Earth might have experienced a great deal of accretion of mass during this period, which would explain the rise in calderas, and a source for the increase in the mass of our planet.
Gravitational disruption from the outer planets' migration would have sent large numbers of asteroids into the inner Solar System, severely depleting the original belt until it reached today's extremely low mass. This event may have triggered the Late Heavy Bombardment that occurred approximately 4 billion years ago, 500–600 million years after the formation of the Solar System. This period of heavy bombardment lasted several hundred million years and is evident in the cratering still visible on geologically dead bodies of the inner Solar System such as the Moon and Mercury. The oldest known evidence for life on Earth dates to 3.8 billion years ago—almost immediately after the end of the Late Heavy Bombardment.
Considering the nature of caleras, could these calderas be the result of the Earth getting hit by shotgun blasts of meteor strikes?
These impacts may have penetrated the crust, triggering massive changes in the upper mantle, and possibly the lower mantle and outer core. The increase in mass would trigger a reformation of the Earth's surface due to the gravitation force changing the surface of the Earth.
