# Re: Conspiracy Theory- Earth's Expansion

```The total gravity is the same, if planetary mass is constant. However, the
force exerted on a body standing on the surface of a sphere varies inversely to
the diameter of the sphere, where mass is constant. In other words the field of
a large fluffy planet is weaker at the surface than the field at the surface of
a small dense planet, given equal mass. Pack one earth mass into a small enough
space, you have a black hole.

The rule of thumb is half the diameter = 4x the surface gravity ... more than
enough to affect bone structure in similarly-massed NLR's. Anyone wants to kill
(er, I mean test) "expanding Earth", here's is your chance.

As a sidebar --

Earth's core is denser than the crust, a ratio of ~ 5 to 3, IIRC. It is a fact
that the acceleration of gravity therefore increases (due to to the density
differential between crust/mantle vs core) as the core is approached, (eg),
when you descend into a diamond mine.

gravity is determined by mass, not diameter.

The inverse square law applies here. To close the gaps between the
continents requires a significantly smaller earth radius, which
assuming
constant mass mandates a surface gravity of much more than 1g.

The effects of long-term exposure of living vertebrates to fields
ranging from effectively zero to 1g are well-documented.  If it is
assumed that paleo-gravities of >1g would affect bone in the logical
fashion, then the structure of fossil bone is an opportunity to falsify
expanding earth theories (or any other theories that include changes in
earth's gravitational field).

Expansionists would have to postulate an INCREASE in the gravitational
constant that exactly compensated for the decrease of surface gravity
caused by earth expansion to explain an absence of histological
evidence. Or so it seems to me.

The expanding earth hypothesis is doing well. They (a group of academic
scientists) have conferences and have even published their results:
Carey, S. W. (ed.) 1983: The Expanding Earth A Symposium. 430 pp. Earth
Resources Foundation, University of Sydney. ISBN 085901209-3. And yes,
they have mechanisms to explain the expanding radius. They have
published in peer reviewed journals, a list of papers has been
compiled:
http://sci.tech-archive.net/Archive/sci.geo.geology/2004-12/0739.html

There is a  web site, but I don't think it is affiliated with the
organization: http://www.expanding-earth.org/

Personally, I am not convinced, but am willing to hear them out.

I am no paleontologist- or geologist even- but I was wondering what
some
It's
ten minutes of your life you'll never get back. I think the author is
crazy. Please tell me if I am wrong. I recognize that scientific theory
progresses through debate, but is this actually a valid argument? I
don't think it is.

Jon e-mailed this to me. The first few minutes sound kind of
interesting
at first, but then this guy goes WAAAAAAAAAAYYY off the deep end. This
man is crazy, probably doesn't even hold a degree, but at least it's
not
another "Global Warming-Denial Conspiracy" theorist. It's a completely
different kind of conspiracy. And a real longshot at that. See for
yourselves.
