Moving continents!

Lots of depictions of continent movement can be found here. PALEOMAP Project “is to illustrate the plate tectonic development of the ocean basins and continents, as well as the changing distribution of land and sea during the past 1100 million years.”

Remember when you could throw a stone from Florida to Africa?  Check out a movable globe from the early Jurassic here.  See what the world will look like 250 million years from now here.  Many other animations are here.

    Here's a clever (crackpot) rebuttal to the theory of continental drift. [gv data="7kL7qDeI05U"][/gv]

    Notice that he uses the modern shorelines rather than the continental shelf boundaries.

    Note that he pooh-pooh's the idea of subduction, that is so well documented.

    Note that he proposes no hypothesis to explain his expansion idea.
