Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

  • Published on: 04 August 2014
  • Planet Earth is this solid thing you are standing on right now. In your everyday life you don't really waste a thought about how amazing this is. A giant, ancient, hot rock. How did it come into existence and how big is it really? You will be surprised. The ground you are standing on is just a very, very small part of the big picture.

    One correction: The lithosphere is the solid crust and the upper mantle, the asthenosphere is the more plastic layer.

    @1:43 "Water from the inside of the earth wandered to the surface".This information in itself is astounding. why because a religious book has the same claim. while talking about the creation of the earth."And we extracted water from its pasture"

    “30% are ground waters, and only about 1% make up the remaining ground waters”... so 31% are ground waters?

    Earth was created by frequencies we know as sound, its core is made of water, the same water structure as space, nothing like the water we drink.the hole planet is sealed inside a bubble, hence the reason we cant get out into what we call space, the sound or frequencies that created the planet is dielectric, which is why it has a magnetic field & magnetic poles, same as a magnet has a north & south pole & a line of ensurer, so does this planet, except we call the line of ensurer, the equator. Please feel free to try & prove me wrong, As this will lead to you proving to your self, that your head has been pumped full of shit, & your video reflects that fact.
