Description

When Dinosaurs and the Expanding Earth was first published it proposed a startling idea to explain the long-standing puzzle of the dinosaurs' gigantic size. Stephen Hurrell presented scientific evidence that dinosaurs lived in a reduced gravity and this allowed them to grow to gigantic proportions. The Reduced Gravity Earth theory explains why all land-based life has shifted towards a larger scale on the ancient Earth. This includes gigantic dinosaurs, plants and insects. It is also a key piece of evidence that provides additional support for an Expanding Earth, something a few leading geologists have been suggesting for decades. Since its initial unveiling, the Reduced Gravity Earth theory has been widely discussed and debated. Individuals from laymen to professors are now arguing that gravity was lower on the ancient Earth. You can analyse the evidence for believing the controversial Reduced Gravity Earth theory and its implications for the Expanding Earth in this third edition of Dinosaurs and the Expanding Earth. Praise for previous editions of Dinosaurs and the Expanding Earth 'something completely different ... an original work rather than a re-presentation of existing knowledge ... well presented.' GEOLOGY TODAY - Blackwell Science Ltd. 'Engineers (Hurrell) have shown that dinosaurs' bones could not have borne their weight ... much reduced surface gravity is essential for dinosaurs to have existed.' Professor S. Warren Carey, University of Tasmania. '... written in a plain straightforward style and its target is a wide public not interested in specialist treatises. Its clear and lively descriptions lead the reader straight to the core of the arguments. ... could well be the topics of joint scientific collaboration between engineers and paleontologists.'

"Stephen Hurrell's book (proposes) an increasing gravity throughout geologic time. Its clear and lively descriptions lead the reader straight to the core of the arguments" Professor Giancarlo Scalera

"Hurrell [has] shown dinosaurs' bones could not have borne their weight" Professor S. Warren Carey

"surface gravity during the Permian was ... precisely what you are suggesting ... much reduced surface gravity would have benefited their existence and mobility immensely" Dr James Maxlow

"Like many such independent thinkers ... we can understand the huge size of the Dinosaurs" Professor Lance Endersbee

"Stephen Hurrell has put his finger on an answer to what is surely one of the most perplexing questions in palaeontology - why the dinosaurs were so huge" Don Findlay

..".has written a landmark book that will still be read and cited 100 years from now" William Erickson

..".finally gives compelling universal answers as to why giants existed back 'then' and not 'now'." David de Hilster
