OK, take your time and read this slowly:

"Statistically insignificant" means that the amount is so small that it can't and shouldn't be used in ANY kind of trend projection.
Why is that so hard to understand?

In the article it doesn't show what sort of statistics have been applied to the data. So it is still possible it was said loosely as insignificant rather than mathematically insignificant.

QUOTE
FYI, the Earth's core isn't cooling by any significant degree.


See you have used the significant word again! Is it cooling or heating? But I was told it is cooling by around 100 degrees every billion years, so it is cooling and therefore I suspect it to be contracting.

QUOTE
The Earth is still a couple billion years away from geological shutdown. Thus, it wouldn't be expected to contract from cooling until long after the crust becomes geologically inactive (i.e. no volcanoes, earthquakes or geothermal hotspots).

Aren't you contradicting yourself/ Yesterday you were telling us the Earth was once completely molten, but now you'd have to go down quite a long way to get to molten material. So that too sounds like cooling has set in under your scenario. But mind you I see the whole situation differently.

Go screw yourself with a fork and knife

I believe there is photographic evidence of features that could be attributed to contraction on Mercury and Mars. If I get a chance I'll try find them.
Are you just testing me or don't you believe it has happened?

"Testing you" would be futile. You fail every time.

And yes, I don't believe contraction due to cooling of either Mercury or Mars has ever taken place, and you are simply spewing out your anus.

Truthfully, I don't believe there is any merit in anything you've posted since you first appeared.

Well I'm sure I've seen a recent photo showing signs of contraction on Mars. How do you find a photo?

On Mars today, there do not appear to be any obviously disconnected surface plates. But scientists don't know exactly how Mars is constructed. Like Earth, it has a core that is mostly iron and, according to a study in 2003, at least partly molten. That suggests the red planet has not fully cooled following its formation about 4.5 billion years ago, researchers say.

Volcanoes on Mars appear to be dormant, but scientists aren't sure about that, either.

Theorists expect the gradual cooling of Mars would have slowed tectonic activity over the past 3.5 billion years. Yet some think there could still be dozens of temblors a year with a magnitude of 3.5 or greater.




On the Moon there is evidence for contraction:

"New Images Show Recent Geologic Activity on the Moon"
http://airandspace.si.edu/events/pressroom...m?releaseID=278

QUOTE
In August 2010, the team reported the discovery of lobate scarps in the lunar crust using LROC images. They propose that these scarps indicate the moon shrank globally in the geologically recent past and might still be shrinking today. The team saw the scarps widely distributed across the moon and concluded that it was shrinking as its interior slowly cooled. The new images of graben therefore present a contradictionóregions of the lunar crust that are being pulled apart as the moon shrinks.


"Chapter 7
Earth and the Terrestrial Worlds"

QUOTE
Did Mercury shrink?
Steep long cliffs formed when the core
cooled, shrinking the planet by ~20 km.
Mercury is now geologically dead.

Have you seen any work you have done publicized?

It seems you are not convincing anyone here. I can't even tell if you've convinced yourself since the work your are at is being postponed indefinitely. If you came here only to entertain opposition to your idea without even being sure of it yourself, you've achieved nothing but self reproach in the long run if you're lucky. Neurosis and discontent if not.

This thread is the research behind the idea that life first started on Mercury. I was hoping to find some residual biological evidence for it. I would say only Soundhertz comes close to being interested in biology, as the forum seems to be hung up on discussions on time and relativity.

BruceP was the first to challenge me to write it up as a paper when he said "put your money where your mouth is", or something like that.

I don't really need to convince anyone here. As long as they continually pick out the weak spots and I can find answers for them I feel as if the idea is becoming more entrenched in my head. I believe it as it fits the evidence better than the current knowledge. So there will be a shift toward my view over time. This will happen whether I write it up or not. It is inevitable.

@Alex - Go back a few posts and there you are saying you didn't know about the contraction of the planets and moons due to cooling. I found the evidence without much difficulty or dispute that Mercury, Mars and the Moon have shrunk, so I ask why hasn't the Earth?
You have shown your ignorance and that you are a hopeless case for you haven't got the courtesy to discuss what I had found for you.

Do you think you could do it? It sounds rather a drastic step, to go from a simple idea to a sci-fi book. I'm not up to it.

Well, it's up to you what you do. Either sublimate your imagination or don't.

I think I've said all that I really want at this point.

It's tragic that you think writing a book of fiction is harder than coming up with a comprehensive theory on solar system formation.

This thread is the book in itself the hero The Mad professor Robittybob1 fighting off the wicked AlexG Force. His half hearted assistants Beer w/straw and flyingbuttressman caught in between.
The Devils Granouille and Lady Elizabeth sidelined he struggles on to get readership and acceptance for his comprehensive theory on solar system formation.

You have found no evidence of anything. You have found speculation based on geological features, features which indicate geologic activity. And you totally ignore anything in these press releases which might contradict you.

As I said, mentally incontinent.

@beer w/straw I looked up the phrase
QUOTE
sublimate your imagination
in Google and it hasn't appear before.
Looking at the meaning of sublimate there was it's use in psychology meaning
QUOTE
b. To divert the energy associated with (an unacceptable impulse or drive) into a personally and socially acceptable activity.

So you are saying turn this activity into something socially acceptable.
