In the world of science, ideas are proven and dis-proven every day. Ideas about the Earth have arguably been some of the most controversially argued concepts. From Columbus?s theory that said the Earth was round to Copernicus?s heliocentric model of our solar system with the sun in the center and not the Earth. Now there is a theory which was actively worked on called the expanding Earth theory. This theory started around the late 1800?s and was heavily introduced to the geological community by Professor S. Warren Carey from Tasmania. And some information currently in the works by retired U.S. Naval Commander Lawrence S. Myers.
