It’s not snarky artistic license, it’s blatantly changing what the theory says, AKA LYING. He is NOT in essence telling the truth, he is outright fabricating. If that’s the impression you got then you should do a better job of reading the theory.

No the current theory holds that the most RECENT all in one supercontinent (Pangea) broke up for the exact same reason that all the previous supercontinents, tectonic shift.

No they don’t say crash, they say continental collision.

The reasonable explanation is continental drift. And if you don’t find it reasonable you’ve got problems with what Adams is pushing because even his theory has the continents moving around.

Actually the current model has a much more intuitively simple model than a planet somehow growing larger through some sort of pair production a process we know takes MASSIVE amounts of energy.

The fact of the matter is growing earth is an old theory that got supplanted by plate tectonic theory, didn’t actually explain things without exceptions, and he’s added some extra bunk to it, but it still doesn’t make sense, you can tell because he LIES about tectonic theory to sell his. He’s a liar. And anybody that listens to him is an idiot.

Yes, I know that current theory holds that there were previous super-continents. They still cannot explain or provide any rational reason for their assertion that the current land masses 'drifted' around the globe.

But here's the thing, and the current theory cannot explain it. If you watch the animation of the shrinking earth, you can see how all of the land masses move closer to each other until they all fit together like a seamless jig-saw puzzle.

How is that possible, if they broke up into arbitrary chunks from one super-continent? If the current land masses are chunks of one contiguous super-continent, they should only fit seamlessly together using that model. They shouldn't fit together on a smaller globe, if the current theory is true. But they do. Not only that, running the model on other planets produces the same effect as running it on earth.

I know how vehemently opposed you are to this theory, but you really ought to take a half hour and watch Neal Adams' videos. Pay particular attention to the ones where he runs his model on our moon, Mars, and Enceladus. The photographs show clear evidence of expansion.

It's tough to argue with his observations. They show what they show. It's up to science to now discover how and why planets do this.
