Expanding Earth theory?


My first thought upon reading the original post article.

A very interesting theory, perhaps this will give us some insight.

Here is another article:

The sequence of huge earthquakes that struck off the coast of Sumatra in April may signal the creation of a new tectonic plate boundary. Scientists give the assessment in this week's Nature journal. They say their analysis of the tremors - the biggest was a magnitude 8.7 - suggests major changes are taking place on the ocean floor that will eventually split the Indo-Australian plate in two. It is not something that will happen soon; it could take millions of years. "This is a process that probably started eight to 10 million years ago, so you can imagine how much longer it will take until we get a classic boundary," said Matthias Delescluse from the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. Dr Delescluse is an author on one of three scholarly papers in Nature discussing the 11 April quakes.

So 1st they state that something SIGNIFICANT is happening RIGHT NOW.

Then they contradict themselves and say it's a VERY GRADUAL process happening over many millions of years and not to hold our breaths ... nothing to see here, folks !

So, which assessment do we go with ... hmmm ?

I'm thinking that a smaller plate would produce more, but smaller EQ's overall.

But that is just my limited education concerning EQ's talking.

You know I can't help but think here that if I were in threads and discussions here and elsewhere, (which I was) in 2010 and 2011 about 2012.....and if those threads really got into discussing what events might be happening and what things might be expected to look like in the months leading up to a major natural shift (which many have) they might just have talked about this very thing........

Of course the real activity around the entire Ring Of Fire, as it were, really only went into high speed in these last couple years so that was a more recent perspective, to be fair.

In terms of how fast this could happen? .Look at the underwater cities that became submerged somehow and probably pretty quickly. The coast off Florida has ruins and evidence of intelligently laid out 'roads' and heck..this is ATS, a quick forum search should show a lot more. The Mammoths frozen and almost preserved as if flash frozen industrially or something.

So... Going by past evidence? I'm thinking...Just my own guess...it could happen VERY fast. I hope it waits another few decades. Call me selfish.

Nothing will happen instantly. Why do you think it would? Given that the plates have released pressure it means that there is no build up of energy. No massive quakes. It might be happening now, but so is the sun shining right now... been doing it a lot longer than those plates have even been in existence, but it doesn't mean it will burn out over night. It will keep doing what it does... just like the tectonic plates.

When the build up of pressure has no way to release, that is when you get major earthquakes as it hit breaking point and releases catastrophic amounts of energy.

Still, interesting as I'd not heard anything about it till this thread!

That's exactly what I thought. I read that and the first thing to pop in my head was "Wouldn't that relieve stress?" But hey, I guess if it does split, we'll just have to wait, see and pray.

I heard about the big sumatra quake effecting other places, but I didn't hear about the discovery of the plate splitting. Now THAT'S a fascinating find!

Wut? As a native, this is the first I'm hearing about sunken cities off the Floridian coast. If you're talking about the ancient canals dug around here, that's not exactly unknown, but they ain't no cities or roads. if it's something valid & not a fringe farce, linky-loos, please? I dislike being out of the historical finds loop down here.

As for the poster who claimed they were contradicting themselves by claiming "significant", and then downplaying, um, I think your reading comprehension needs a little work. They said it's major changes, but they're going to take a LONG time to complete and form a new plate. It's still a very major change, just not a fast one. Sorry if it's not lickity split fast enough for you. Damn instant gratification generation *shrugs & meanders off*

Thx for that video whateva69, on a side note girls with wings make me flutter.. Kidding.. Kinda..

Back to the video almost forgot what I was saying..
Did Anyone else watch it? The top video whateva posted?

It's about the plates, and how the plate we are discussing may have risen 300 ft from where it was and is coming up pushing the philipines plate down...

It uses data from booyies(sp?) and may be worth a watch..
I'm wondering where are all the ATS quake experts.. Would really like their input right about now.

Oh how I prefer the Grays coming this year over some Mayan event. This year has been very odd.

Wow... Got a bit offended it seems? Well, I figured this was/is a fairly open discussion and I've personally seen numerous documentaries now over the years that speculate about the possibility of ruins underwater there in the "Bermuda Triangle" area. I'm no expert... I've never dived the area and only been in Florida a few dozen times as a trucker. I just take from the shows and......great threads here for that matter.....that it's more than a passing theory that such a thing may have been and in that area. I've even heard wild speculation about Atlantis being sunk around that area,

I mean, we're not on Nasa.com or the NationalGeo home site where the mere discussion of such things is forbidden without evidence 10 ways from Sunday and peer reviewed on top of that..

We're talking about seeing geologic changes no one has ever seen before, which is what I have taken from much of the thread,. In that case, there is really no way to know for sure but to say that over 4 billion years, the planet seems to have been in radically different land mass configurations and the precise hows, whys or whens seems a real point of open research.

According to additional research:


In another new study, Fred Pollitz at the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California, and his colleagues found that the global rate of quakes with a magnitude of 5.5 or greater increased almost fivefold in the six days after 11 April - something that has never been seen before, even after very large earthquakes (Nature, DOI: 10.1038/nature11504).

The operative statement from above is "something that has never been seen before, even after very large earthquakes" which implies that on 11 April, a critical point may have been reached (and passed) that could unpredictably determine the rate at which further future splitting takes place.
Sure, could be another 10 million years or could just as likely be next year ... thats why Chaos Theory was invented. Additional small changes could result in massive unpredictable and unforeseen effects.

i dont think this is all related to pressure, i get the feeling there's forces underneath the plates pushing them in a direction, if the pressure builds up or not, these forces underneath seem to unleash in bursts.

@whateva69, thanks for the youtube links, definately one to subscribe.

I agree with the crazy mutt. The rate of change is now not so predictable.. The rate of change of the plates movement was slow because of it being so jammed, but if it has loosened from it's other half then it most probably would speed up.

Who knows what happens next? I don't

I really cannot be bothered to go through all this again. The so called Indo Australian plate already is two plates.

and here is one of the quake guys now...

I even looked at that picture and missed the fact that you are absolutely correct..

I feel kinda silly. Thanks Man.

Dear tauristercus, ATS Readers, Writers,

Well, I was kinda surprised when I read this post..

After those quakes, my wife, (lives in Brisbane)..was saying, or even "thinking and wondering" out loud;

She said she wondered if the huge Oz plate was cracking up. It goes clear out to New Zealand on the other end of it. And my wife was wondering if that pressure on the entire plate was kinda focused on New Zealand area.

The plate getting shoved in that direction, as one great poster put the MAP up shows us...New Zealand is kinda like on the tip of a spearpoint chunk of the plate..she figured that was a big factor in the real bad quakes that Christchurch had to endure. ( It is said it is still a mess, infrastructure-wise, sewage lines, etc.) The damage was extensive!

My wife is quite a character...lol. Never boring company, and quite often comes up with brilliant thoughts and ideas... This post was like reliving the conversation we had way back then after those quakes.

It is good that this got posted. My wife and I are trying to settle on WHERE we might put down roots someday in Australia, after we both fully retire. We both love New Zealand, and it is a lovely place but the quakes..from this info, it will always be subject to these bad shakers.

The recent quakes, ( much smaller), in the state of Victoria were interesting to note.. hmm?

It also looks like the Northern shore of Oz could be in the sights for a future really bad tsunami..if the fault line ruptures just right.

Future quakes in this area and in near vicinity to this proposed new plate boundry will tell the tale. If we get to live long enough to see them develop...unless your name is Mathusela (sp?)...lol.

Good post, thx.
