I was actually pretty offended by this video. It asked me to believe that no smudging of the continents as occurred, yet it was painfully obvious that there was much "smushing" going on in the video. It asked that I believe the oceans formed from nowhere or that they were created by a mini-sun in the core. It asked that I believe our Earth has doubled in the course of 600 million years and doubled again in 70 million years. Here is a quick bit of math:
600,000,000 ----> 70,000,000 (years) is 11.6%
12,500 ------> 25,000 (miles around the Earth) is double
If we continue just this trend and double again (reaching 50,000 miles) we would have to expand 32.32416ft per year.
70,000,000 -----> 8,166,666.619(years) is 11.6%
25,000 -------> 50,000 (miles around the Earth) is double
Thus 32.32416 x 8,166,666.619 = 263,980,618.45056 ft.
263,980,618.45056 ft./ 5280(feet in a mile) = 49996.329 Miles
Lets go back before 600,000,000 years ago when they claimed the last "doubling" occurred. This means the Earth was ~6250 miles around (four times the size of Pluto). I would love to see the animation for that one.
I hope we all followed that. So we would have the Earth putting on 32 feet per year so we can imagine what this would do to GPS. Now I know that GPS has been tossed around a lot in this thread, but it is true. With the ability to track the movement of land and specific locations for the last 20 years would mean that things should have moved a considerable distance since GPS was first introduced. Ok on to water. Where is it coming from? In the video there is zero explanation for millions of gallons of water spontaneously appearing as the Earth grows. The same can be said for our atmosphere. Where is is coming from? As the Earth expands that means the atmosphere would become less and less dense as it continues to spread over the new surface. How is this replenished? Is that mini-matter factory in the center of the Earth creating all forms of matter? Has anybody told this guy about the accretion theory? Or perhaps how stuff keeps falling to earth every day? Can you even have a magnetic field with a plasma core(this is a serious question I would love an answer to)? As of now, the way I understand it, we use magnetic fields to shape and contain plasma not the other way around.
Well, lastly the thing that slapped me in the face with this video is it asked me to believe this "scientific explanation" or it called me an idiot. Either you have growth and subduction or just growth or you can believe that the Earth is the center of the universe. Who makes a claim that supposed to be based on science by telling you that you have to believe this or your as dumb as a box of rocks?
