It may be noted that there is no question about Continental Drift and, therefore, the continents move, but will the proposals on subduction zones would be valid? The processes of formation of mountain chains were linked to areas of convergence - or the results would be buckling surface by the processes of expansion?
The expansion of the Earth or the Earth Expanding Theory had as one of its most important proponents , Australian geologist Samuel Warren Carey (1911-2002). He and a small number of other researchers, continued to support expansion and investigate models of the Earth. Carey coined such phrases as "Subduction is a myth," "The most likely site for error is the most fundamental of our beliefs" and "Subduction exists only in the minds of its creators" In fact, it may be noted that there is a much greater extent of linear kilometers of Mid-ocean ridge, where there is clearly expansion of the ocean floor, than linear kilometers of so-called subduction zones as suggest by the paradigm of Plate Tectonics.
Current models of the Earth's interior, based on studies of seismology and mantle tomography indicate that the mantle is rigid and colder than previously thought. How could then occur subduction zones? Another fact to consider is that everything in the universe seems to expand. The observation of the planets of the solar system does not show any suggestion that subduction zones could occur, however expansion processes seem to play an important role in the evolution of planets and stars. Why only planet Earth work within the meaning of Plate Tectonics?
It may be noted that there are so many questions to be resolved and that support at least in the field of logic. Expansion models allow almost perfect adjustment of the continental masses on a planet with a radius smaller than the current one. Note also that many models of continental reconstruction based on Plate Tectonics leads to many inconsistencies, and that will be if that used a smaller radius in reconstruction adjustments would be better?
It would be very interesting to try to reconstruct all the continents according to the Expanding Earth Theory, using available data from geochronology, geological and paleontological correlation. If there is a better fit, certainly part of the Plate Tectonics Theory should be reviewed, analyzed and reviewed. Perhaps the most important challenge in this new global tectonics would be to study the causes of possible mechanism of expansion and adjustment of mountain building in the geologic time.
