“Believing that the basaltic rock of the ocean floor can penetrate into the metal-dense, compacted sub-surface of the Earth, is like believing that you can “hammer a wooden nail into a cannonball,” if you just do it very, very slowly.”
by Liam Scheff
In this excerpt from chapter 10 of “Official Stories” by Liam Scheff, we peel away a layer of the “theoretical” geology known as plate tectonics. This idea was dropped into our laps as school-children: the Earth as a conveyor-belt of stone, always growing – but always shrinking – at exactly the same rate of speed. But is it so? Let’s have a peek…
Excuse Me, I’ve Got To Subduct Now
The official story, taught in universities and schoolhouses, is that on our conveyor-belt planet, ocean shelves sometimes, for reasons no one can describe, just go wobbly and bend when meeting a continental shelf or another bit of ocean floor. And one will say to the other, “You shall not pass!” And the other replies, “Oh, terribly sorry, just let me bend and dive into the center of the increasingly dense, atomically-impenetrable, harder- than-steel planet.” And so it does.
But what happens if a bit of continent or island is embedded in the subducting ocean floor? Ah, trés simple, cheri. If even so much as a smidge of continental rock, in island form, hits the subduction zone, the whole conveyor belt stops, reverses and the subducting ocean floors swap places. The one without any continent or island on it now does the diving under.
That’s the official version, as presented by Washington University professor Michael E. Wysession in his Teaching Company lecture, “Recycling Oceans.” Perhaps you want to forgive him for having recorded it on video for paid distribution. Or perhaps you want to fire the entire geology department now. In any case, it’s official.
Researchers like Stavros Tassos and David Ford, who are critical of the official version, have pointed out that believing that the basaltic rock of the ocean floor can penetrate into the metal-dense, compacted sub-surface of the Earth, is like believing that you can “hammer a wooden nail into a cannonball,” if you just do it very, very slowly.
But the Earth is not made of rubber, and the ocean floors are not made of butter. These two pieces of observational evidence alone make subduction and plate tectonics improbable, in the extreme.
– Oh, really? Sounds…”scientific!”
Toward A New Model of Insanity
If the conveyor-belt was the model (and still is in universities), it’s so transparently illogical that no field geologist can work with it. To keep the funding moving into research departments, those working in the field have developed at least two additional theories to try to explain how plate tectonics works.
The first is that the ocean floor is pushed along from the gently expanding ridge. The second is that the ocean floor is being pulled along, into the subduction zone (wherever that might or might not be). The first notion is called “ridge push.” The second is “slab pull.” And of course, they don’t work. Let’s have a look.
Ridge push. The official story: the ocean floor is pushed along from the ridges. The official problem: the ocean floor does not glide. It’s not on wheels, ball bearings or roller skates. It cannot be pushed a centimeter to the left or right across its entire expanse by a very weak force emanating many thousands of miles away.
The ocean floor is also not a flat, solid sheet. It is a broken tundra of cracked and piled rock. You cannot push a field of pebbles by pushing one boulder. There is no single “floor” to push. And what is under the ocean floor?
Geologists have only managed to dig 9 miles into the Earth, on a planet that is almost 8,000 miles in diameter. They surmise that rock is packed so densely in the mantle, beneath the cold basalt of the oceans, that atomic structures are actually compacted. Temperature does rise at great depth, but so does pressure, to a million times that at sea level. For these reasons, ridge push has all but been abandoned by researchers, though it’s still listed in the text books.
You’re Pulling My Chain
The second new model of subduction is called “slab pull.”
The official version: the descending ocean floor in this scenario is being sucked downward into the Earth by the subduction zones at the continental shelves. This “sinking” of the edge of the ocean plate drags the entire ocean floor along with it.
The official problem: what subduction zones at the continental shelves? The mainstream likes to point to a V-shaped gap that forms between the continents and the ocean floor. They argue that this must be the seafloor “diving” under a continent. But the gap is a pull-apart, not a push-in. It looks more like what would happen if the ocean floor were pulling away from the continent, over time, making a V-shaped crack.
The mainstream has not been able to successfully demonstrate that any of these are subduction zones, which has led them to allow subduction-zones to appear anywhere on Earth that scientists need them to be. And, like black holes and dark matter (see Chapter 9 on “Big Bang” myths), to be invisible.
