Earth Grows in Japan
JAPAN TIMES Features Growing Earth Theory
Neal Adams has scored a landmark triumph in advancing Growing Earth Theory with an unprecedented public relations coup. The Japan Times, one of the more serious and widely read English language newspaper publications in the Far East, has published this week, a 3-article feature on Growing Earth Theory, in its weekend magazine supplement.
Reporter Jeff Ogrisseg, a Tokyo-based journalist with an abiding interest in Earth sciences, has delivered what is perhaps the first, and definably the most in-depth, coverage of Growing Earth yet to see print in mainstream journalism. True to the paper’s motto, “All the News Without Fear or Favor”, Ogrisseg takes on Plate Tectonics and places the pros and cons of a Growing Earth on the proverbial journalistic table, for readers to judge. From the start, the meticulous reporter distinguishes between the scientific history and credibility of Growing Earth and the myriad uncorroborated pseudo-scientific propositions for Earth origins. For the first time, and within a serious and reputable mainstream publication, the reader is engaged in a fair and balanced presentation of Growing Earth – its history and development as a viable scientific model – and left with the vivid impression that it embodies a pivotal role for the future of Earth science studies.
The first article, Our Growing Earth? lays out discrepancies between Growing Earth and the more circumstantial evidence through which Plate Tectonics became embraced.
Could this theory offer one simple explanation for the current distance between Earth’s continents, and the death of the dinosaurs – without involving a Hollywood-size asteroid – and turn the long-held notion of India smashing into Asia on its head?
Is it merely a coincidence that you can reassemble the continents into a single supercontinent that would encase a much smaller Earth?
Growing Earth Theory says yes, yes, yes and no; geology is not big on coincidences.
The second article, Dogmas May Blinker Mainstream Scinetific Thinking, takes the reader on a well articulated and researched journey through the history of Continental Drift and development of Tectonic Plate consensus, all the while weaving in the venerable turn towards an Expanding Earth model led by scientists/geologists Hilgenberg, Carey, Maxlow and others since the 1950′s.
Interestingly, though, it’s not so long since science was leaning in favor of a far simpler explanation that followed in the footsteps of those who had centuries before set their eyes on the first world maps.
Scientists such as Otto Hilgenberg (1896-1976) in Germany and Samuel Warren Carey (1911-2002) in Australia, working in the years before World War II, not only noted how the continents bordering the Atlantic appeared to fit into each other if pushed together. They also observed, and made models to show, that the Pacific, Indian and Southern Ocean continents also fitted together but as one mass entirely covering an Earth half its present size.
Third in the feature, is a profile of Neal Adams, Top Artist Draws Growing Global Conclusions, recapping the artist’s career – focusing on his contribution to the revival of Growing Earth Theory, his proposed model for spontaneous generation of new mass in planet cores, and need to challenge mainstream science towards facing the overwhelming evidence, and ushering a conceptual upheaval across all areas of scientific research.
But what really consumes Adams these days is the way he’s drawn to Growing Earth Theory to the point where he’s spent more than half a million dollars of his own money striving to contribute to the scientific debates. He has, through his Continuity Associates studio, produced more than a dozen video clips demonstrating expansion tectonics in action all around our solar system that have been viewed by millions online…
…”I’m upsetting all the apple carts,” he [Adams] said. “This really comes down to a new science. I’d like to sugarcoat it, but I can’t. Most of what we know or assume to know is wrong one way or another. That’s kind of a kick in the ass to everyone, isn’t it?”
More than half a million dollars is no small change. It tells of a dedication equaled with a personal and financial investment worthy of the implications of a Growing Earth for the future of science and humanity.
Indeed, a resounding victory in the arena of public relations and popular opinion. A victory for perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds, as Growing Earth Theory continues to capture the hearts and minds of a growing public – growing in steadfast conviction that our Earth and universe are alive, dynamic and beckon a new future across the horizon of human curiosity, self-awareness and achievement.
First we take YouTube… and then we take the world press.
Few theories are without their flaws, but Growing Earth Theory certainly has a way of growing on you.
