I submit to state that i have discovered that continents are not drifting,but rising.
the rocky plates of the earth are continuously rising.continents and islands are rising.
Due to this rising of rocky plates, earthquakes and tsunami are caused.

Subject: Discovery: The rocky plates of the earth are continuously rising. Due to this rising of these rocky plates, earthquakes and tsunami are caused.
After the 26-12-2006 earthquake in the island of Sumatra, which gave rise to the tsunami, the island of Simeulue which is at close proximity to Sumatra had risen up to three feet.
Three months later, following that earthquake, on 28-03-2005 there was another earthquake and the island of Simeulue was found to have risen up to six feet. A milder version of tsunami was also experienced at that time. Apart from that, surrounding the island of Simeulue , for about three hundred kilometers, the once submerged sea flora was visible on the surface of the water. The media had given a large coverage with photographs of this phenomenon.
Based on this, I had already stated in my research article published in Tamil Dailies, that earthquake and tsunami were caused due to the rising of the rocky plates below the island of Simeulue . Now, my discovery has been scientifically proved.
Why do rocky plates rise?
When hot gases and steam are eliminated from the molten rock material inside the earth, rocky plates of lesser density are formed from the molten rock of higher density.
I had explained that as substances with lesser density have the tendency to float on liquids with higher density, the rocky plates with lesser density formed from the molten rock with higher density rose upwards resulting in the rising of the island of Simeulue .
The explanation of researchers for the rising of the island of Simeulue
But, researchers were of a different opinion regarding the rising of the island of Simeulue .
Researchers had explained that India and the continent of Australia are situated on a large rocky plate called the Indo – Australian rocky plate which is moving in the north eastern direction. During the movement of the Indo – Australian rocky plate in this direction, its front edge got inserted below the rocky plate of Burma and this resulted in the 26-12-2004 earthquake and tsunami.
Researchers specifically state that, thirteen crores of years ago India , the continent of Australia and Antarctica were fused together at the South Pole. Later, India and the continent of Australia got detached from the continent of Antarctica and moved towards their present day location.
Researchers had stated that the movement of continents was the result of the separation and movement of the rocky plates below the continents.
At present India and the continent of Australia are situated five thousand kilometers apart!
According to researchers if it has to be believed that, thirteen crores of years ago India, Australia and the continent of Antarctica had been fused together in the South Pole region, and later were separated and are at present at a distance of five thousand kilometers away from each other, definitely these landscapes should have been situated on two different rocky plates.
If it had not been so and had been on a single rocky plate, there is no possibility of them existing five thousand kilometers away from each other.
But unfortunately, there is no scientific evidence to prove that India and the continent of Australia which are at present at a distance of five thousand kilometers away from each other are situated on two different rocky plates.
Picture proof released by NASA
The American Space Research Center NASA, had released a world map showing the epicenters of all the 3,58,214 earthquakes which occurred from the year 1963 to 1998 (Picture – 1) and a map prepared by the researchers of NASA, which was supposed to be the boundaries plates of the continents (Picture – 2).
In that map, it has been recorded that earthquakes had occurred continuously as if a line had been drawn surrounding the continents. Researchers are referring to this region as the boundaries of the continents. (Picture- 1)
But, on the map showing the occurrence of earthquakes released by NASA, (Picture -1) surrounding the continent of Africa as if a line had been drawn, earthquakes had occurred continuously. Based on this, geologists state that Africa is situated on a single rocky plate.
But, on the same map, it can be seen that earthquakes had not occurred in continuity in between India and the continent of Australia .
. Based on this and the world map released by NASA which is supposed be the boundaries of the continents (Picture – 2), researchers of NASA have stated that they cannot definitely state as to what is happening on the sea bed between India and the continent of Australia . (See the note below Picture-2).
So, there is no basic evidence to prove that India and the continent of Australia are situated on two different rocky plates.
Hence, there is no basic proof for the researcher’s statement that the earthquake and tsunami in the island of Sumatra on 26-12-2004, were caused as the Indian rocky plate’s front edge got inserted below the rocky plate of Burma .
Due to the rising of the rocky plates, the island of Simeulue suddenly rose and earthquake and tsunami occurred.
So my discovery is that, only due to the rising of the rocky plates, the island of Simeulue also rose and earthquake and tsunami occurred on 26-12-2004 gets proved by the map showing the occurrence of earthquakes all over the world.
No proof for the drifting movement of the islands
Moreover, researchers state that the island of Madagascar which is in the Indian Ocean was fused with the continent of Africa sixteen crores of years ago and was later separated from Africa and still continues to move.
But, on the map showing the occurrence of earthquakes released by NASA, (Picture -1) earthquakes had occurred continuously surrounding the Arabian plateau. But, there had been no continuous earthquakes between the continent of Africa and the island of Madagascar .
This justifies that the island of Madagascar is not situated on a single rocky plate. So, there is no solid proof for the statement of researchers that many crores of years ago the island of Madagascar got detached from the continent of Africa and is still continuing to move.
But the fossils of dinosaurs that lived six and a half crores of years ago have been discovered on the island of Madagascar . The island of Madagascar is located at a distance of four hundred kilometers away from the continent of Africa . Moreover, in between the island of Madagascar and the continent of Africa lies the Mozambique Sea , which is of two kilometer depth. Dinosaurs would not have crossed this deep area by swimming across the sea.
Hence, it gets proved that six and a half crores of years ago the level of the sea had been two kilometers lower than now. As the level of the sea had been two kilometers lower dinosaurs would have used the connecting land area to migrate from Africa to the island of Madagascar .
When the molten rock material inside the earth gets cooled and hardens to form new rocky plates, the water which gets eliminated from the molten rock gets mixed with the sea water through deep sea hot water springs and the level of the sea keeps rising.
But, on the map showing the occurrence of earthquakes released by NASA, (Picture -1) there had been no continuous earthquakes between the continents of North America and South America .
So, there is no solid proof for stating that many crores of years ago all the continents remained fused together and in due course got detached and are moving away from each other continuously.
No solid proof to state that continents are moving continuously
As the fossils of sea fauna and flora are seen scattered all over the continents, it proves that many crores of years ago all the continents had remained submerged in the oceans and have now risen up above the sea level.
The Islands of Indonesia are continuously rising.
Soon after Tsunami, which killed more than two and a half lakhs of people and had originated from the island, Sumatra, it was found out that, after the earthquake the north western part of the island simeulue, which was in that region had risen about three feet high above sea level.
On account of this, a new shore had formed on the north western part of the island. In addition to that; the sea sponges which were on the sea bed were visible above the sea level!Three months after the earthquake on 26th December, 2004, another quake occurred on 28th March 2005 after which simeulue was found to be four feet above sea level. Apart from this, for an area of about three hundred kilometers, sea sponges which are normally found below the sea could be seen from all visible areas!
Why did the island rise four feet above sea level ?
As the molten rock keeps cooling gradually, the rocky plates that are formed at different levels are of less thickness and density and they keep rising continuously.The main reason is that, when the molten rock cools, the water and hot gases get released and the rocky plates that are formed are of lesser thickness than the magma in which they formed.
Water has a higher density and the ice cubes formed from it have a lower density and they tend to float on water Likewise, the molten rock material which has a higher density produces rocky plates which have a lower density and these move above sea level and form islands.When new plates are produced by the molten rock material, they start moving upwards thereby pushing the plates which were already formed.
The plates suddenly start rising upwards due to intense pressure.Similar to the ripples that are formed and expanded when a plate of water is hit at the centre from below with a finger, when the island simeulue, which was found in the central part of the Indian Ocean suddenly rose up, the water was pushed aside in all directions and only this resulted in Tsunami.The frequent occurrences of earthquakes and Tsunami in Indonesia are only due to the sudden rising of the islands.
But, the geologists have come up with a different explanation for the earthquakes which occur there.
They say that, about six and a half crores of years ago, India was an island on the southern part of the equator. It moved slowly towards north and collided with Asia about five crores of years ago and it is still continuing its movement.
The geologists also opine that due to this movement, when the indo-Australian plate suddenly went below the Burmese plate on December 26th, 2004, an earthquake occurred.
There is no truth in what they say because even six and a half crores of years ago India had been part of Asia in the same place as it is found now.
The fossils of mammals which lived in Asia six and a half years ago have been excavated in the form of bones by Professor Ashok Sahani of Punjab University and Professor G.V.R. Prasad of Jammu University in the village of Naskal at Andhra Pradesh and they prove that the above statement is true
So, as per the researchers’ opinion, India had not been an island on the southern part of the equator about six and a half crores of years agoSo, it is proved that even six and a half crores of years ago India had been part of Asia in the same place as it is found now and is not moving in the north eastern direction.
Therefore the indo-Australian plate did not go suddenly below the Burmese plate. So the earth quakes on 26 -12 -2004 and 28 – 3 -2005 and the Tsunami are only the result of the rising of the island, simeulue, above its original level.
Why did the island of Java alone experience earthquake on 2009-09-02 ? On 2009-09-02
The earthquake which was of 7.3 on the Richter scale and shook Java, one of the islands in the group of Indonesian islands, claimed 75 lives. The explanation given by geologists is that, India and Australia are found on a huge rocky plate, which is moving in the northern direction and sliding below the rocky plate on which the group of Indonesian islands is situated and rubbing against it. This is the root cause of earthquakes.
But why did the island of Java alone experience earthquake on 2009-09-02 ?
Why didn’t the island of Sumatra or the island of Andaman experience earthquake on 2009-09-02 ?
How is it possible for the Indo-Australian rocky plate to slide only below the island of Java alone?
How is it possible for the Indo-Australian rocky plate to slide below different islands on different days?
What is the real reason behind the striking of earthquakes in different islands of the Indonesian islands on different days?
Volcanoes result in earthquakes.
There are one hundred and thirty volcanoes in the Indonesian islands. When the molten rock material in these volcanoes cools down and hardens to form rocks, hot gases and water are released from it. This produces rocks of lesser density from high density molten rock.
A thing of lesser density will float in a liquid of higher density. Hence, when the newly formed rocks of lesser density in the volcanoes below the Indonesian islands rise upwards their edges rub against the edges of the nearby rocky plates, resulting in earthquakes on that particular island alone .
