### Expansion Theory needs a better information video

Here is a simple video on “Seafloor Spreading” related to continental drift that I just watched, which is simple and dumbed down enough to communicate this concept at a level that less scientifically minded people can understand:

I’d love to see it used as a model in style and simplified communication for a full explanation for expanding earth. Maybe that’s too big an ask as I suppose the subduction or the absence of it might be a more difficult thing to dumb down.

Maybe something like this already exists, but I haven’t found it. If anyone has a link that’s maybe not easily accessible on YT, shoot me a link.

Hi Paul,

I would have thought there were several. Neal Adams placed a number of simple introductions to Earth expansion on YouTube. The Science: 01 has over 2.2 million views so far:

Prof. S. Warren Carey did a video in 1982, Planet Earth: A Question of Expansion that has made it onto YouTube:

Dr. James Maxlow placed a whole lecture, Yes! The Earth is Expanding:

Greg Moffit has conducted some interviews:

There’s an interesting TV short documentary about Earth expansion (but you need to speak French or German):

And of course our very own David de Hilster has a number of videos about Earth expansion:

All the best.

Couldn’t this also be related to the more persistent density of water over time? A sifting process. Same basic result, slightly different mechanics. Higher density land mass breaks up and falls down, while waters density remains more constant over time in relation to land mass. Our planet has a high iron content. Water pushes up from the plates while heavier particles fall down to the core. Gravity further compresses land mass into denser solids underneath the layer of water. The entire core of our planet is thought to be dense iron. Contraction would seem to play a vital role in the process as well. The core layers may be gaining density while the more persistent density of the water layer pushes up and spreads out.

I suppose we would also be gaining some matter over time naturally from gravity. Debris from comets and asteroids floating around in space getting pulled in to our gravitational field. Wonder how much of that is water or iron.

Are there any estimates from the amount of mass we gain from space on a yearly basis?

Just wondering…

Seems like a lot of moving parts over time.

Looks plausible. The video is pretty convincing.
