Neal Adams expounds on the Expanding or Growing Earth Hypothesis, which disavows the accepted geophysical theory of Plate Tectonics. Adams asserts that the position and relative movement of continents is at least partially due to the volume of the Earth increasing.
The Pacific, believes Adams, opened more broadly than the Atlantic. He says, “This is exactly why the knee-jerk Pangaea theory exists. The Pacific spread is too difficult to easily visualize because it’s so big.”
“Why does the scientific community desperately cling to and promote the idea [subduction] that the ocean bottom is sliding under the continents and into a magma, which is twice as dense as solid granite — a totally unsupportable and scientifically unsound idea?” he asks. “They have to.”
While the Expanding Earth hypothesis had some acceptance in the past, the scientific consensus has rejected it since the 1970s, when the theory of plate tectonics gained wide acceptance.
