HISTORY & BACKGROUND

Over the years there have been various endeavours to assemble the continents around a smaller Earth. However, such experiments have been unsuccessful in presenting solid evidence in favour of expansion; each required a degree of manual manipulation in order to achieve accurate continental positioning. For a history of the expansion concept and the inspiration for this live model, see Why this Challenging Interest? An Expansion History.
The repudiation suffered by past investigators was due partly to the inadequate models they presented and partly to the well-funded, well-supported promotion of continental drift. If your knowledge is a little fuzzy about the currently-accepted theories for the Earth's development, review The Dominant Trend: Continental Drift . If you'd like to clarify this dogma's errors of discontent, check out Basic Oppositions to Continental Drift.

The author's personal approach toward the research is explained in A Craftsman Works by the Look of Things .
Just half a millennium ago nothing was known of the vast continents of the Western world. Now known from north to south, east to west, its reaches were revealed within 500 years as it emerged as the New World to influence every aspect of the old. A brief history of defining the Earth and the development of the highly detailed cartography as a result, may be found in
