(there are no mountain chains on the perimeters of the vast Atlantic Ocean's coasts)
the Rocky Mountains of the United States spans an approximate distance of three kilometers from the coasts.
Ophiolite, I think a closer answer would be found in the iridium layer of Earth. The time line found in the bedrock is more precise. It is unfortunate scientists spend many hours considering the Chixculub Crater on the Peninsula of Central America. Chixculub is the assumed crater, which killed Earth's dinosaur populations; as well as many other animals and plant life.It is through this concentric layer we may find the time line. I think this is the period (the Cretaceous-Tertiary), where we find the age of Earth's great mountain chains. No other event in Earth history, was more extraordinary than the KT event. Nonetheless, the Chixulub crater impact was for certain; not the crater of impact, by which Earth's great mountain chains emerged...
Tell me..what do you know about the concentric iridium layer?
Remember the KT event. It would be absolutely idiotic for a scientist to forget the KT event! Study it, research it... it is extremely relevant to Earth history.
The wealth of strati-graphic, paleontological, radiometric dating does not clearly define the 'complex' of events, which are responsible for the mountains around the Pacific. You speak of events...spread over hundreds of millions of years responsible for the mountains around the Pacific. That is not science, that is uncertain speculation with too much or hardly any thought.
Quote from: dareo on 19/04/2012 23:09:44 i have studied it. I am familiar with it. It is relevant to Earth history, but not to the formation of the Circum-Pacific mountain chains. If you believe it is relevant you have to demonstrate in what way. You consistently fail to do so.
Yet, there is still more. Are you familiar with the mineral 'shocked quartz'? Again, another clue misunderstood in your world, as it is also prevelant and abundant on the Pacific Ocean floor. Can you tell me something about shocked quartz Ophilite? Or has the detective scientist failed to observe a massive crater with puzzling evidence? Is it truly that difficult?
dareo,Here are three things that reveal you as an ill-informed crank.
If you think, I have failed, failed, failed...why are you still posting? Good bye Ophiolite
OK.. I stand to say. Subduction is BS!
These fossil beds were pushed up and folded during the earths reshaping to a larger radius during expansion.
Hi Ophiolite.I didn't know your questions were directed to me as I got into this conversation late.
Wow love your red letters. Real high class there.
First I did not refuse to answer your question I simply did not and could not have thought it was for me as I do not see any clear evidence of anything that is proported by subduction.
.... I do not see any clear evidence of anything that is proported by subduction. I believe subduction is a theory that will be proved wrong. Earthquakes indicate nothing to prove subduction. And your plate movement along slabs? WTF is that?
LOL Ophiolite.Lets just agree to disagree.
There is no subduction!Talking to you about this makes about as much sense as talking about Zombies.Show me your evidence.
