But apart from
these things, within a few days of my early research, I naturally
found flaws with my original reconstruction, like eliminating volcanic
or coral island chains. I also saw that some of the similarities
of the coastlines in and around Asia that I had observed had been
seen before and were regarded by some as evidence of a land-mass
earlier than Pangea, which had once joined in the East before breaking
apart to meet and collide on the other side, before breaking apart
again at the Atlantic. This suggests that there are 'cycles' and
the continents actually rebound to spread in different patterns
( an increasingly popular view amongst geologists ). But, again,
this seemed to be based on an acceptance of collating all the data
on a constant radius.
This idea of the Earth always having had
a constant radius started to touch on other fields, like planet
formation, and I began to realise the scope of what I was getting
Here we return to the question of 'where
does all the extra material come from inside to cause expansion?'.
I found that there were several already existing
'Expanding Earth' societies that get hung up on this question, and
have spent several decades formulating theories to explain the mechanism
of internal expansion.
I don't believe this is necessary as there
may be no need for anything to be happening inside to cause expansion
if a Pre-Cambrian Earth resembled Mercury. Mercury has no atmosphere
or oceans to shield the molten interior exposed to the void at the
time of original impact ( see 'Overview'
), in which case a spontaneous expansion into a vacuum ( as can
be seen in thermo-dynamics with gas ) seems a more likely route
to explore. This idea will be developed in future drafts of the
site ( See: 'Full Sequence and Notes'
). The above parties also ignore Paleo-Magnetic evidence, which
is one of the bases of my Pre-Cambrian Shield reconstruction.
I also found that neither the Expanding Earth
societies, nor Conventional Geologists, had worked on my premise
of closing North and South America - even though this premise is
not contradicted by any data about the Earth's surface.
