you get a star for the well stated facts as for ancient civilizations being buried.. the outer layer of the earth is definitely moving in all
directions, weather has a big part of burying history.. that doesn't mean the planet is enlarging...
Here is the thing ok.. as I have posted I know and fully believe that the earth is gaining mass from space debris
What I am saying is that I think the earth was bigger than it is now.. maybe the title of this thread should've been " Did the Earth use to be
bigger".. my first thread so...
Gravity is actually relative to the earths core... and if this planet was bigger and then got hit and lost a chunk of mass... the core would still be
the same... the closer you get to the core the HIGHER the pressure... which means if earths outer crust use to be closer to the core the gravity at
sea lvl would have been MORE.
So here is where I'm having issues with it I suppose... its the gravity point.. the dinosaurs and like you said the elephant... if the earths
"crust" is steadly getting further from the core gravity should be getting less for us... however this isn't the case.
