Unfortunately it's only interesting so long as you ignore volcanoes, earthquakes, mountain ranges, and all manner of other Earth sciences. He misinterprets and skews the key points about plate tectonics, not to mention the fact he ignores pretty much all applied physics theories - i.e. if you were to change the mass of the planet, the orbit and rotation would change significantly (as well as our distance from the Sun), thereby meaning that it's highly improbable that life could ever have started or existed on Earth and that his timescale in years could never be accurate.
My favourite part is where the narrator says "we'll be going back in time, imperfectly". Hmmm, "imperfect" science - isn't that called religion? haha
Actually you are partially wrong there. As none of us were there to observe this change, it's all theory. However, what most people are unable to do is think of both being true. My opinion is he is partially right. The earth may have been smaller than it was and as it grew, the plates shift. I think a combination of events is very plausible. In fact, more plausible as it would take into consideration both key elements of the two theories and make them work together. My opinion of earth is it very could have endured changes in size over time inside. As we really don't know what occurs at the core, speculation will insue. If planets do grow, or shrink over time (live planets) then perhaps one can say Jupiter or Saturn may be a foreshadowing to our planet. Simply we don't know and as such, any possible theory must be accepted as a possibilty, much like religion. Again, I think both theories together work much better than on their own.
Any science which is theory is imperfect. Science is in fact a form of religion. Either you beleive it or you don't. Either it changes with time or it becomes stagnent and disappears into mythology and movie of the week.
There is proof that the core is at least metallic and that the Earth is spinning, otherwise the magnetic field wouldn't exist. We can all see this in action very simply by using a compass. I have since read some of the comments on the video by the creator and he claims that the Earth's core is hydrogen. It can't be and there is more than enough scientific evidence that it isn't.
The reason he makes this claim is because he also tries to claim that as the Sun will do, the Earth can "grow" by "more matter being created at the core". Due to the way in which gravity behaves on solid matter, it would be impossible for it to "grow" as he theorises - in fact, since the original cloud of gas that the Earth was originally composed of then the Earth will have become "smaller" in size (or more dense to be scientifically correct), to the point where gravity and the Earth's rotation formed it into a sphere-like object. He explains this away by claiming that the Earth's core is gaseous, with fusion reactions taking place as they do in stars like the Sun. The fact is that this wouldn't even be possible if the Earth did have a hydrogen core as the Earth doesn't have the mass required to create the gravitational effect needed in order for the temperatures required for fusion to take place - we can see this too by the fact we exist and wouldn't be able to if temperatures such as those at the centre of the Sun existed at the Earth's core.
This guys theory is absolute bunkum, ignoring all inconvenient truths and facts, making wild and impossible leaps of faith, all just to try and justify an entirely flawed perspective.

The part that bothers the heck out of me, as a geologist, is that he acts like subduction is not happening, while it quite obviously is! Do this, compare the ocean west of the americas in his globe versus google earth, its completely different! he has superimposed the atlantic rift onto the pacific. The pacific is subducting along the west coast of america not rifting!!!! Complete Hoax!
Congratulations America. Through your hard work of ignorance you have now taken another step towards the end of the constitution. Yep, the first amendment just took an uppercut to the chin.
Whoever attempts or conspires to knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct in, or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions; OR
knowingly, and with the intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, obstructs or impedes ingress or egress to or from any restricted building or grounds
In other words if you want to show your discontent for the corruption your government does, you go to jail...for up to 10 years!
So again, congratulation America. and if you love the constitution then obviously you're traitor to your Reich...I mean country...
The following summary was written by the Congressional Research Service, a nonpartisan arm of the Library of Congress, which serves Congress. GovTrack did not write and has no control over these summaries.
3/8/2012--Public Law. (This measure has not been amended since it was reported to the Senate on November 17, 2011. The summary of that version is repeated here.) Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 [sic] - Amends the federal criminal code to revise the prohibition against entering restricted federal buildings or grounds to impose criminal penalties on anyone who knowingly enters any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority. Defines "restricted buildings or grounds" as a posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area of: (1) the White House or its grounds or the Vice President's official residence or its grounds, (2) a building or grounds where the President or other person protected by the Secret Service is or will be temporarily visiting, or (3) a building or grounds so restricted due to a special event of national significance.
"War is young men killing other young men they do not know on the orders of old men who know one another too well."
You have to laugh at the comlete stupidity of the law these days.
$1 million bail for a man who sold raw milk in California (a drink the queen of england enjoys)
$25,000 bail for a cop who beat a man to death after tazering him umpteen times.
Can you say 'good german'? Something just isn't right with this? But hey, that's conspiracy.
I know there is a farmer in rolla, missouri that sells raw milk, hear it makes great cheese. To non-americans, please don't judge us based upon the retards in california! Land of fruit(s) and nuts. Equivelant of judging islamics as all terrorists.
Also what are you getting at with "good german"??
Yeah, right now all we are really working on is getting it down range and safety safety safety. Not even letting them bench rest. They are all doing great, one minor safety screw up and one of the twins spent the next hour till we left in car and they have got we are serious about it. good fun. All 6 kids last weekend went through 500 rounds in an hour. We actually went once just young ones and I to practice safety things again.
