I see from devel that you solved your problem. Because you had said
you were a programmer, I had assumed you would interpret the
[google-earth-stable?] as meaning that it wasn't the actual name, and
that you should substitute the name. That's why it didn't work, not
because the package was gone (even though it was).
Having seen the successful command in devel, the command I gave
you should have been
rpm --erase --nodeps --test google-earth-stable
Since your problem is solved, I'm only posting this for completeness,
in case someone else searches on this issue.
