Plate Tectonic Problems?

I received a heads-up on a recent published paper in Geophysical Research Letters by Wang, Kusky and Capitanio, titled Ancient Continental Lithosphere Dislocated Beneath Ocean Basins along the Mid-Lithosphere Discontinuity: A Hypothesis. The hypothesis is purported to explain the presence of anomalous … Continue reading

Expanding Earth & Misplaced Plasma Theory

One of the problems facing Earth Expansion Theory (EET) is the absence of a plausible physical mechanism to produce expansion. The largest obstacle the EET’s have is countering the mechanism of gravitational accretion that the gravity model assumes to occur … Continue reading

Cavendish Conundrums

The Gravitational Constant, G, is determined by the Cavendish Experiment, but as Rupert Sheldrake has noted in one of his You Tube lectures, Big G varies and no one understands why. The plane of motion of the oscillating test objects … Continue reading

Electrons and Electric Fields

The famous Millikan oil-drop experiment involved observing suspended minute oil-drops falling under gravity and then under an applied electric field which stopped the downward motion. There are quite a few descriptions of the experiment on the Internet, this being one of … Continue reading
