Hi there, guys. Didn't read the whole post, but the earth HAS grown in size. Check out this link:junglelord wrote:What if it was flightless?
I know we would think it had to be a form and function relationship, but maybe it did not fly.
Of course maybe the earth has grown in size.
Short video, but a real eye opener. Pangea was a lie. Gravity must have been much less powerful in the early earth, and therefore, creatures of this size most likely could fly without much of a problem. It also makes sense that dinosaurs, in general, were so big in size because they required less energy to uphold themselves against gravity allowing them to grow much larger than wildlife seen today. According to this video and the evidence presented by it, the earth has nearly doubled in size since then.
The lower gravity of an earth half the size of the earth as we know it allows a much larger range of growth in creatures in general, allowing massive creatures to exist, and even fly, unaided. So, basically, that number mentioned in the original posts would be doubled as far as poundage goes.
