many of the things we take for granted today as established science was once controversial and the establishment scientists of the time fought against them.
I don't think anyone can argue that we today have it all figured out. Therefore, I prefer to read about and keep an open mind to fresh ideas rather than simply accepting what the scientific consensus of the day dictates.
If there is one thing I have learned in my various readings, it is that there is a scientific establishment and it works very hard to protect the status quo.
If you looked seriously into the expanding earth theory by reading the books and papers on the topic, and watching the various lectures available on youtube you might begin to agree that there is considerable evidence for the theory and that it in fact makes more logical sense than "conveyor belt" plate tectonics and an ancient pangea surrounded everywhere by ocean.
But then, I guess it is much easier to quote a wikipedia page than exert any effort into looking beyond scientific orthodoxy of our time.
