    Interesting... but if the earth's rotation is slowing, wouldn't that cause our days to be noticeably longer???

    Exactly. And level places to go out of level.

    Nice images, enticing music but there is always something that makes you go, "Hey..., wait a minute." Google this video creator and his theories and see what science has to say about them before accepting his premise.

    It sounds scientific to me and it sure makes my theory of giant alien gophers feel all STH.

    Some of the pictures they showed looked like washouts instead of sinkholes. I would give them more credit if they didn't try to pad the evidence. I didn't watch it all. The music was too dreary.

    I feel like knowledge got sucked out of my head after watching that video. Might as well blame aliens, or unicorns. The fact that the earths crust is in constant motion seems to play zero part in their hypothesis.

    Everyone knows the Earth is flat and the Sun revolves around it.
    Great pictures but, without true science, that's all I see.

    That is an absurd theory. The sink holes are being caused by those pesky space critters. They are burrowing under the earth's crust and mining Kryptonite, creating tunnels into the earth's core which in turn causes dirt to get sucked into that molten core. Everybody knows that....

    Here I am forty years ago just putzing around some eighty feet under the Earth's surface, about to enter a space I could best describe as equal to any domed sports stadium. Tens of thousands of years in the making and, as rain and soil percolate through the lime rock above, at some point, the surface is going to find its way to where I was at. In my part of the country minor sinkholes are a given. Our local high school football field is built on a sinkhole. For years, until the Department of Environmental Protection stepped in, folks took their old appliances and dropped them in to the local sinkholes; I'm certain the practice persists.


    Based on this "scientists" theory, tourist attractions like Luray and Carlsbad should have collapsed decades, or even centuries, ago.

    The sad part is there are gonna be a ton of people who find this theory completely believable.

    No mention of sinkholes being attracted to Corvettes....that's the REAL answer.

    We visited the Corvette Museum last summer. The sink hole story has become a very popular feature of the museum and there are several Corvettes on display that were damaged beyond reasonable repair. There is a special section that shows the security video of the cars being sucked in, a "feel the moment" display that emulates that fateful event and many photos & displays of what happened. Those guys sure know how to make lemonade out of lemons!! Maybe the Studebaker museum could do a special "when the plug was pulled on Studebaker production" display......
