Land animals first appeared on our planet 360 million years ago, while life itself started some 3,500 million years ago. This is odd because life is extremely resilient. Life is always quick to occupy whatever space there is available to it. So, why did it take 3,140 million years for life to spread onto land?

The answer to this may be that there was no land to occupy before Earth started to expand some 360 million years ago. It wasn’t before we had some initial rifting and uplifting of Earth’s crust that we got any dry land.

But the ocean that covered our planet must have been shallow for dry land to have appeared so soon after Earth started expanding. The volume of water cannot have been nearly enough to fill our current oceans. Some additional mechanism must have been at play for the current oceans to have been filled so perfectly with salt water.

The only way this could have happened, short of a miraculous coincidence, is that the water has come from inside our planet. If it came from any other place, the coordination between expansion and water supply would be impossible. There’s no way the heavens could be coordinated in such a way that they supply water at the exact rate of planetary expansion.

Furthermore, comet tails have water rich in deuterium. They are therefore not the source of water on Earth.

The abundance of salt in our oceans is further evidence that the water came from within our planet because Earth has huge salt domes hidden inside its crust.

If the expansion of our planet is due to radiation, as suggested in this book, then water may even be synthesized inside our planet as part of the expansion process. Heavy elements split off hydrogen and oxygen atoms as they decay through radiation. The result is water.

From observing rifts and volcanoes, water vapour appears to be an abundant component of their venting. All evidence point to Earth as the source of water in the oceans.
