Neal Adams has an excellent new video short on his Continuity Studios web site simulating how mountain ranges came into being.
Geologists have long speculated that Earth's mountain ranges are the result of the continents crashing into each other in what they theorized to be part of the process of the Pangea continent formation breaking up into the present one we now have. Neal's science project calls the Pangea model into question, noting the improbability of the continents being able to plow through the ocean floor and lack of evidence for subduction in all the places we'd need to see it.
Neal Adams' new model for the phenomenon we see on the planet today suggests that the Earth has grown in size since it came into being, and continues to do so. The overwhelming evidence he notes for this is the age of the ocean floor, which is 2-4 billion years younger than the continental crust. As geologists continue to struggle with the house of cards they've built most of their theories on, Neal is pushing ahead with his science project and presenting compelling and sound answers to many of the questions about the Earth's origins, still puzzling the scientific community.
Mountain ranges, Neal notes in the new video, came into being as the planet grew and the curvature of the continental crust became more straight. This caused the "bunching up" of land masses at the edges of the continents while leaving open flatlands in the middle areas, as is evident today.
I was fortunate to have viewed a screening of Neal's science project video in production, during a Big Apple convention last fall. An awe inspiring project with much thought and effort behind the conceptual and technical breakthroughs it makes. Difficult as it is to sway public perception of this subject and to compel an acceptance of it in the scientific community, this video is destined to become a landmark achievement in our collective knowledge and understanding of our universe. Go have a look and witness a revolutionary discovery in the making.
This is a good opportunity to pass on a congratulations to Neal and Continuity Studios for the recent news concerning Continuity Comics properties coming to the big screen. Marilyn Adams is no stranger to the TV and Film industries and this good news can undoubtedly be credited to her vast experience and determination to elevate Continuity as a viable contender in the entertainment world. Congratulations, well done and best of fortune on the road ahead to Neal Adams' Continuity Associates enterprise.
