First of all, no offence. But you stated that life had not undergone any changes. For the past 100 million years. Well, actually it's undergone
enormous changes ... so the arguement is self contradicting. That we can say that these changes are from life having to adapt to different
environment, is a different debate entirely.
I specified changes in the diameter of the Earth. The fossil record does not reflect this. It reflects all other significant Earth changes but there
is zero evidence that life ever had to cope with an increase in the Earths diameter of 40% or more
Second, I urge you to find two different materials of different density and try to push the lighter density one, into the creater density one.
It's not merely a "lighter" material into a heavier one, or something floating on water. Because oil floats, not because of it's composition, but
because of the shape of the oil molecule. It "can" sink ... the same applies to Iron ... it'll sink as a rock, even if a ship made of steel will
As stated before anything that floats does so because it is less dense than the liquid which it floats upon.
You present a case where a dense but thin plate slips under a much bulkier but slightly less dense plate into a liquid which is even more dense before
finally melting away.
YES, This is how it happens. Fill up your sink, get a scrunched up ball of paper and a relatively flat (but denser) piece of cardboard. Put them so
they’re both floating in the water then push them together. This is plate tectonics.
What we're talking about, is "impossible". It's like trying to have rock, sink into steel. Yes, it will sink into liquid steel wich is much
hotter than rock. Because it will "melt". And the effect you will see, is eruption of gases. The mantle is pressurised and magma is magnetic. It's
electromagnetism is evident, in volcanic eruptions. However, in case of the mantle. It is generally objected to that it is molten ... it is considered
to be preassurised rock, slightly liquid, highly resistive.
Again this is exactly what we see. The oceanic crust is subducted under the continental crust into the molten ductile aethenosphere where it
The resulting escaping gas are responsible for much of the worlds volcanic acivity such as the Pacific Ring of Fire (where the Pacific plate is
subducted beneath the continents on either side of it) as well as many of the world's mountain ranges.
You are attempting to debunk established plate tectonics theory with the very facts that prove it.
