Came across this video while doing some research on tilak’s ‘Arctic home in the vedas’ which says that during the Vedic Age India was alongside current arctic region.
According to the continental drift theory, all present 7 continents we see now were once attached to each other (as a giant continent called pangea) and then started moving apart giving rise to current geographical structure of continents separated by oceans.
The video below proves this theory wrong, instead it says that when earth had a single huge land mass called pangea, the size of the earth was much smaller than it is today and so all continents were together as a single huge land mass then and as earth continued grow in size all these continents looked like as if they are moving apart and have reached their current positions!
In other words Continental drift happened not because continents moved away in a earth which was the same size as today, but because a smaller earth became big making continents appear as if they moved apart!
The video says that the volume of earth is increasing and so the land mass which once covered the entire earth now covers only a part of it as the earth has nearly doubled its size in the past 65 million years. Note that it was 65 million years ago that dinosaurs were wiped out of this planet. And we have dinosaur fossils all over the world which means that it had to be a single giant land mass back then as dinosaurs can definitely not swim in oceans.
This theory of earth growing in size makes lot more sense than the continental drift theory to me because, this explains the finding of fossils of sea and ocean’s creatures on top of mountains today. The finding of these fossils definitely means that those moutains were once under sea/ocean bed. This could only be possible if earth had been much smaller during those days when the moutains were under the sea, so that all water that is in the oceans today had submerged a smaller earth then overflowing the moutains of today. As earth grew bigger, the water level went down and we have today’s moutains with fossils of oceanic creatures on the top! Perfect, right?
Continental drift theory cannot explain the findings of fossils of sea and ocean creatures on top of mountains. If earth were as big earlier as it is today, then how was it possible for the same amount of water that is there today in the oceans to submerge today’s moutains in them millions of years ago? Where as if we accept that the earth was smaller earlier, then the water then would have been enough to submerge the mountains we see today, which clearly explains why we can see fossils of sea creatures on top of some moutains today.
Also, as mentioned rightly in the video, the oldest under sea fossils have been found not under sea/oceans, but on land, and this is because the current land mass existed under sea in a smaller earth millions of years back, where as the current sea and ocean bed are much later creations due to the increase in size of the earth.
Hence I agree with the theory put forward in this video below.
Apart from this I noticed an interesting thing here, which was the actual purpose of my research. It is shown that the present India was linked to Antarctica when all continents were together earlier. This disputes tilak’s theory of the Arctic Home of the Vedas. Tilak had said that during the vedic age (which infact was also the end of the last ice age) India was next to the current arctic region. But here it looks like it was antarctic and not arctic, in other words it has to be ‘The Antarctic Home of the Vedas’! More research under progress,…
One more thing struck me here. When we say, earth is increasing in size what does it mean? Is it the mass of the earth? I dont think so, where is that new mass coming from? It looks like only the volume of the earth is increasing, in other words, the space occupied by earth is increasing. How?
Well, I think is it related to big bang, that the universe itself is expanding, and this expansion is happening everywhere, so it has to have a local expansion too. I had this question in my mind ever since I read about the expanding universe in my high school, I had then thought that since we live inside this universe, our humans bodies should also be expanding Similarly even the earth is expanding, although at a slower late, it took 65 million years for it to double in volume the last time.. we humans expand at a much much more smaller rate, that we die much before our expansion could reach an observable level. Well, I am not talking about eating junk food and becoming obese. Well, hope earth doesn’t need to do dieting and fitness exercise like some humans do
One final thing, we could check for such expansions in other planets and stars as well !
