Neal Adams, a comic book artist, created an animation to promote the idea of a 'growing earth'. This idea proposes that all the continents were once all together and then pushed apart - not by plate tectonics, but by an expanding earth! Of course, he blames a scientific conspiracy for suppressing the truth which automatically sets off my 'bullshit detector'.
What I don't understand is, why get so worked up about it? I was looking for clues that this idea has some connection to religion but I didn't find any. The earth is still billions of years old in this idea and the proposed mechanism for an expansion sounds like science. Global warming conspiratists likely want to continue living the way they want without worrying about future consequences but I don't see how believing in 'plate tectonics' is a social threat. So, why is Adams and geologist Dr. James Maxlow so keen to present their ideas?
Is it a simple case of hard feelings because 'the establishment' has refuted them?
Here's the Adams video:
I also found a speech by Dr. James Maxlow at the 'Nexus Conference' which appears to be supported by Nexus Magazine. According to its website, Nexus Magazine is,
a bi-monthly alternative news magazine covering health breakthroughs, future science and technology, suppressed news, free energy, religious revisionism, conspiracy, the environment, history and ancient mysteries, the mind, UFOs, paranormal and the unexplained.
Here's part 1 of Maxlow's speech (I couldn't be bothered to watch the other 13!):
Anyone have any ideas on why they're trying to promote this idea?
