Lloyd's EU Theory of Earth
* On Feb 18, 2009 I wrote the following summary of my best guesses about Earth's geology, which I'll compare with my best guesses now, based on Dwardu's interview and other things. I'll intersperse my present guesses here in blue.
- Feb 18, 2009Earth Formation
- Earth is a Geode
formed in an electrical Z-pinch. Geodes, Concretions, Tektites, Balls in Craters and Blueberries are formed the same way. Geodes usually have several layers, with the densest layers toward the center, although the center may be hollow or filled with fluid under pressure. Earth's layers appear to be Core, Mantle, Lithosphere, and Crust.[This still seems likely, but our Earth-geode may be hollow at the core. Allyn provided a good link on that at another thread some months ago.]
- The Seafloors are mostly Basalt
, about 3 miles thick, which cooled and solidified slowly, so the grains are microscopic. The Continents are mostly Granite
, which is identical to Basalt, except the grains are larger, indicating that Granite cooled and solidified quickly. Gentry's radio-halo Inclusions in Granite, with parentless Po, also indicate quick solidification of the Granite Continents
. It seems likely that Granite should initially have covered the entire Earth, because the outer layer would have been exposed to colder temperature, where solidification/crystallization would occur rapidly.
- Sedimentary Rock
is layered Rock that covers 75% of Earth's continental surface from 2 to 6 miles deep
. Sedimentary Rock was laid down by electrical deposition. 10-15% of Sedimentary Rock is Limestone. Limestone under the Bahamas is 3 miles deep. Limestone consists of Calcium etc, apparently from Seawater. Shale is common Sedimentary Rock made from Clay Soil. Sandstone is the third type and it is made from Sand, which is mostly silicon dioxide, SiO2.[Note: 1/2/2011: Nick reminded us months or longer ago that Juergens thought granite was produced by the electrical breakdown of sedimentary rock. If granite is nearly the same as basalt, then basalt may also have been made by electrical breakdown of sedimentary rock. Sediments apparently would have come from proto-Saturn flare-ups.]Continental Drift
- EDM removed most of Earth's Granite Crust from the Pacific Ocean Basin. Some of this was deposited on the Continents as Sedimentary Rock. The rest was likely thrown into space. The Pacific Ocean Ridge was formed in the process. Then a large meteorite and megalightning struck the Somali Basin and split the Supercontintent into Continents and Islands and drove them apart. The electrified fluid Moho Layer allowed them to slide
for a few thousand miles. The Atlantic Ocean Ridge formed when the Americas split off from Africa and Eurasia. Mountains were built up
mostly from horizontal compression from the initial outward motion of the Continents from the "impact" site and then from the friction that took hold as they slowed down, especially encountering the Pacific Ocean Ridge and Siberia. Electrical forces then modified the appearance of the mountain ranges.[I now think Dwardu may be right that proto-Saturn flare-ups caused seafloor spreading by temporarily stopping Earth's rotation, allowing the continents to slide by momentum. But I think "impacts" may have been involved as well in the continents' sliding.]Floods
- The Great Flood
occurred after the Continents stopped sliding, when the Plasma Column at the North Pole was separated from Saturn.[There were great floods, or tsunamis, during each of the many periodic proto-Saturn flare-ups.]Soil
- Soils are Loam, Clay, Sand and Loess.
Clay and Sand form by EDM pulverizing Rock. Loam forms from organic matter combining with other Soil. Loess is Soil deposited by wind. California Loam washed out of the Granite Sierra Nevada Mouintains. Plants and bacteria transform Lava and Magma into Loam.[Much of that seems correct, but the original sediments came from proto-Saturn's flare-ups.]Fossils
- Fossils occur almost exclusively in Sedimentary Rock, but also in Muck (mostly frozen), such as in Alaska and Siberia. Fossils formed mostly by electrification
and were soon covered by electrical deposition of Sedimentary Layers. Some animals and plants were buried during the Great Flood, when many layers of Sediment covered them before electrification. In Ohio is a large area where sharks were fossilized. The Fossils are mostly in swimming positions, so the animals were trying to swim in wet mud, when they were covered by more Sediment, which became thick and heavy enough to hold the sharks in their swimming positions after they died. The overburden of Sediments was so heavy, that the sharks were flattened to about a quarter of an inch thick before the Sediments were electrically solidified.[This still seems plausible, but I'll have to ask Dwardu for comments. I don't think he considers fossilization to be an electrical process, but I still do.]Other Electrical Effects
- Seamounts and some Mountains are fulgamites [raised up by megalightning]. Magma, Lava and Flood Basalt
are formed by electrical fluidization. Craters
are formed by vertical, brief EDM. Shattercones
in Craters are made by lightning sonic booms. Many River Valleys
and Tributaries, as well as many Caverns
and Gouge Patterns in Mountain Ranges
, were formed by horizontal EDM.
[These still seem correct to me, but Dwardu seems to think electrical forces can't do all those things.]
