Pangaea is only the latest supercontinent . It is one of several that has occurred . Rodinia formed over the south pole covering a large portion of the southern hemisphere. It was leading factor in causing a glglobal glaciation referred to as " Snowball Earth " . As it broke apart it released massive amounts of greenhouse gases that caused the Earth to warm . This radical climate change led to an explosion of life. ( actually , there were several global glaciations . )
Long Island so close to Africa?.....hmmm, you know who is going to be pissed and on even more paranoid alert.
A cruise from San Fran to Italy would have been awfully long and boring, unless you really like water. Doesn't look like a whole lot of ports along the way.
I was not finished . The second supercontinent Gondwana also had major affects on climate and life . If Pangaea had not broken apart ( which is impossible ) life as
we know it would not exist ! Geologic forces cause climate change by changing ocean currents , distribution of heat , the chemistry of earths atmosphere and water. Climate also effects geology . And life , in all its forms , effects both climate and geology . The interaction of these processes creates the ever changing conditions the allowed life to form and evolve . Now throw in the interactions of Earth within the Solar system , the Galaxy , and the universe and you realize that humans are just a product of chance .
@XTall Yeah, there's a bigger picture in the link, and looks like The Wall should lay just about across the border between Russia and Ukraine.
@RobC423 And you, apparently, are the Mayor.
@REDDYROG "Me thinks"......faggot.
That's certainly one theory. Another would be that the odds were so long that there must have been something guiding the process.
