In 1933, German scientist Otto Hilgenberg demonstrated, with a series of models, that the zig-saw puzzle fit of the continental plates fit together across the Pacific as well as the Atlantic to form a planetoid approximately 65% smaller than earth’s present size.1,2

Scientist Arnold Euken, 1944 Germany, and J. Marvin Herndon, 2005, have demonstrated mathematically that this 65% smaller earth was the necessary byproduct of the primordial conditions of Protoplanet Earth.2,3 Both theories of ‘Whole-Earth Decompression Dynamics’ (WEDD)4 and the supplemental Fluid Dynamics of Whole Earth Decompression Theory (FD-WEDT)5 use as part of their basic premise a 65% smaller planetoid at the heart of a large gas giant Protoplanet Earth.

Further evidence for this 65% smaller planetoid actually comes from the mistaken theory of super-continent Pangea. The notion of a super-continent grew from the observations of apparent land bridges across oceans. Land bridges made obvious by matching geological evidence, ie: similar rock strata and composition; and supportive fossil evidence.6,7

The fossil record clearly indicates that various dinosaur herds shared the continental boundaries. Particularly for late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic life forms. Classic examples are the Mesosaurus, a snagle-toothed reptile, found in both South America and South Africa. Glossopteris, a tree like fern, is found in South America, Africa, Madagascar, India, Antarctica, and Australia. Sauropod fossils such as the giant Brachiosaurus build the connection between North America, Europe, Africa, and India. A shallow sea occupied the middle of the North America but an extensive land bridge joined northeastern Asia with western North America; indicated by carnivorous dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurs, armored dinosaurs, duckbilled dinosaurs, and horned dinosaurs throughout the American West and Mongolia.8-12

The obvious zig-saw fit across the Atlantic is apparent to everyone. However, continental drift theory has the continents swimming their way around the globe mating up in multiple combinations to include all their land bridge and fossil evidence; while a 65% smaller planetoid with all of the continents fitting together to form a continuous concentric crust shell simultaneously satisfies all the evidence.

Super-continent Pangea was actually planetoid Pangea.

Evidence from the fossil record has long been used to argue evidence of large scale flooding.13 Just why do some things become fossils and some things decay to oblivion? The answer is primarily because they were covered with mud.14,15 Fish usually float when they die. To bury these marine fossils, in such large numbers, might have required a sudden and catastrophic event..

Supporters of large-scale flood theories have used polystrate fossils; fossilized trees that stand vertically through horizontal layers of different rock strata, as flood evidence. Such fossils are found all over the world and some are up to 80’ long. Standard thinking gives the impression: these trees stood upright for centuries as the rock slowly accumulated. Flood theory suggest the rock strata must have accumulated quickly to bury these trees.16,17 Can anyone argue with seashells on the top of the Rocky Mountains?

There are even suggestions that the Petrified Forest is only a result of some gigantic logjam caught in the torrents of floodwaters. Piled aground in Northern Arizona and buried to petrify.18 The Wolverine Petrified Forest piled aground in Southern Utah. The Petrified Forest of Lesvos Greece is another logjam example from across the globe. While Fossil Grove in Glasgow Scotland and Lulworth Fossil Forest in England appear to be entire forest buried upright.19

The use of the fossil evidence to support either planetoid Pangea or flood theories leads to a curious revelation. 65% smaller Planetoid Pangea at the heart of a large gas giant Protoplanet Earth had an active biosphere.

The great pressures of a gas giant protoplanet would not have been a limiting factor to an active biosphere. Here in Colorado it becomes self-evident that as long as the pressure within my inner ear and atmospheric pressure are the same, my biology is comfortable. It is known that a scuba diver could stand on the deepest sea floor if it were only a question of pressure. Instead it is the air mixture he breathes that determines a scuba divers limit.20,21 The breathable air mixture of Protoplanet Earth is simply unknown other than it must have been much different than today.

Laminar flow fluid law speaks to layers of fluids and gases flowing past one another smoothly, with faster flows sliding along side slower masses without conflict.22 An eloquent visual representation of this phenomena is seen in the atmosphere of Jupiter. Bands of gasses race around the planet, with turbulent eddies formed at their boundaries; while other bands of calmly wandering gas are wedged between.

Following this principle of laminar flow, there is no scientific reason preventing the planetoid’s surface being wrapped in a thick layer of warm tropical weather year round. Temperatures moderated by the thick greenhousey atmosphere of a gas giant protoplanet. An image of Planetoid Pangea also supported by the fossil record with tropical-type fossils evenly distributed across the frigid poles of today.

Another correlation that seems to support an active biosphere prior to planetary decompression comes directly from the great dinosaur extinction event. Mainstream theory suggests a meteor impact, in the Yucatan Peninsula, triggered the extinction event. The timing of this impact event is approximately 65 million years ago.23,24 Correlate this time scale next to a sudden and catastrophic decompression event approximately 70 million years ago, as gauged by the age of the oldest sea floor.25 Expressing this correlation in worst terms yields a +/- 5 Million year margin of error. As a laboratorian, I would compute this data as 67.5 Million years ago +/- 2.5 Million.

As an abstract thinker, I would suggest that absolute understanding of all the variables used to guestimate ancient dates and the reality from Relativity that time isn’t always exactly linear yields variance in the guestimation process. Therefore, a +/- 2.5 Million year variance at 67.5 Million years ago is only a 3.7% variance over such a great time span.

When you are on the right track the pieces simply fit together. If the evidence indicates that a meteor impact and decompression event happened almost simultaneously in the past then that’s just what the evidence indicates. An eruptive solar event capable of sweeping the inner solar system clear of debris and ejecting gas giant atmospheres could have easily thrown a meteor to earth.

The following decompression sequence was sudden and catastrophic and the fluid dynamics of gasses and fluids cracked the planetoid into its continental plates followed by rapid decompression. Gasses and then fluids would have raced to their hydrostatic equilibrium as rapidly as possible. Followed with delay by the slower decompressing planetary mantel. The lag time variance between Gasses and fluids versus semi-solid planetary mantel reaching their hydrostatic equilibrium points could well have buried the land’s surface under the waters of Oceana; and saw the semi-solid planetary mantel catch up to, and then surpass, the waters level by continued slow decompression that grew us to the planet we live on today. The interim global floodwaters of Oceana leaving evidential log jams and burying fossil beds.
