Growing Earth hypothesis from one of the more famous comic book artists. Ties in geology, some fringe physics, and why the dinosaurs died out. I'm fairly convinced myself!

Many videos on youtube, this may be a good place to start:

Totally, hollow and expanding earth theories are reoccurring themes in my ether research.

I've never watched any expanding earth videos...though I've always thought this was the most logical explanation for earth. A fluid spinning ball naturally pushes its mass to the outside through centrifugal force. An expanding earth is logical. This would also lead to a hollow centre. Plus you'd start with mostly ocean and then gain more land as the crust expanded but the water volume stayed the same. This would explain seashells found on high plateaus and halfway up mountainsides etc.
Thanks for these links, will definitely watch!

Ok after watching it, I think he missed that the water was always there and the original earth would be mostly water covered, but emerged as the earth expanded.
Plus it makes sense that the expansion is speeding up, since as the earth expands then so too does the centrifugal force (and speed) generated at the outer crust...thats just physics...and so the expansion accelerates.
I guess this might also explain the length of the earth year changing? If the earth is physically bigger then maybe it rotates faster at the surface, and so the journey around the sun takes more (now shorter) days?
(I just made up that last point on the fly...)
