you are on the right track
the Earth is expanding via the 'outgassing' and vulcanism processes
the ammount of cosmic dust that has accumulated over the 4 billion years of activity might
(this is just a guestimate) be around 2 kilometers in depth...hardly an 'expansion'
~more like an accretion process~
yes indeed... the Earth is gaing circumfrance or girth
because the liquid & compact 'mantle' beneath our crust
that rises to the sealevel...actually is 'expanded' in the sense its like that icecream that is puffed up
with air to make 6 ounces of icecream product swell into a volume that fills a 16 oz. container....
likewise with the tectonic ridges where the mantle product is infused with gasses from the subterranian
and puffs up as Lava and crust to our vantage point. creating land mass some 1.6 times larger than the material used to create the expanded
we tend to overlook or discount this factor because it is not - in the striictist sense- 'scientific'
but this is just another reason for the fringe thinking and conspiracy platform that the ATS forum provides...i'm glad there's this place to espouse
these ideas/thoughts/theories/mind-bender confrontations to established, 'accepted norms' and 'Status Quo' of the scientific community ...
