Jose Canseco - Physicist/Paleontologist/Geologist

Jose Canseco, former Oakland A outfielder, was the first to hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases in major league baseball.  He must now be a professor of physics, paleontology, and geology.  I can't find where.

He has recently take to Twitter to explain the changes in the strength of the gravitational interaction and the effect it has had on animal physiology.  He then hypothesizes that the reason the gravity has intensified over the millennia because the Earth's core shifted.

I look forward to reading the peer-reviewed articles.  I understand Derek Jeter, Roger Clemons, and Ryne Sandberg will be doing the reviews.

  1. Mr. Canseco apparently has read my theory, 'The Gravity Theory of Mass Extinction', which explains how surface gravity changed. The theory posits that when a supercontinent such as Pangea moves latitudinally, the core elements move off-center to maintain the Earth's conservation of angular momentum.

    Therefore, Mr. Canseco cannot claim that this is his theory.

    If interested, visit a summary of the theory:
