On plate tectonics and the Ice Wall
« on: February 08, 2007, 06:05:20 AM »
According to someone on this forum who I believe is a FEer, but I forget their name, said that there still are plates. And they move. And one thing he mentioned was that the plates that go off the end of the earth curl on move downwards off the edge.

Questions: 1. WHat is the flat earth theory of plate tectonics?

2. If you believe the same thing as this unnamed person, wouldn't the Ice Wall fall off the earth?

Edit: Here. They subduct at the ice wall apparently. TheEngineer

No, they subduct at the ice wall.

Subduction is not curling up and moving down off the edge.

Actually, the mountains that they say is the ice wall would never have formed in those conditions, so that doesn't work either.

The OP doesn't make any sense. But they seem to be saying that plate tectonics would not be possible on a FE. Which is false.
