The theory of Plate Tectonics predicts that the Indian Plate was separate from the Asian Plate for tens of millions of years. Over geological time India drifted towards Asia, eventually crashing into Asia to form a neat suture zone between the two continents. Today’s geologists have spent many hours examining and debating this suture zone.

Three Indian geologists have recently highlighted significant problems with this seemingly simple theory. They start by wondering “how did the northern continental crust happen to be at the suture zone with a gap perfectly to fit the outline of the migrating Indian plate?” Even if they originally split apart before re-joining, “their perfect refitting would be nothing short of a miracle.”

The three Indian geologists, Zahid Ali Khana, Ram Chandra Tewarib and Rabindra Nath Hotac, discuss this tricky geological problem and many other related ones in their new paper, Problems in Accepting Plate Tectonics and Subduction as a Mechanism of Himalaya Evolution, published in a 2017 issue of the IOSR Journal of Applied Geology and Geophysics.

These geologists make the profound observation that all these problems are only problems for the Plate Tectonic theory, yet they aren’t problems for the rival Earth expansion theory.
