Albert Wegner<br />His theory was that the continents fit together like puzzle pieces-also known as continental fit. <br />
Back in the 60’s…<br />It was discovered that south America and Africa fit together better if you connected them at the eastern border of south America and Africa western border then they’d fit like a puzzle piece.<br />
Even though…<br />South America and Africa were connected, Asia was still conjoined to Africa. So it looked like this:<br />
225 million years ago…<br />Australia was connected to Antarctica, and stayed connected up to 65 million years ago. <br />Shortly after the separation, Australia started to rotate.<br />
North America's eastern border used to be connected to Europe 65 million years in the cretaceous period.<br />
India was once connected to Africa’s Eastern Border. It drifted north colliding into Asia creating the Himalayas.<br />
This piece of evidence…<br />The most important piece. You don’t even need a text book to or computer. All you need is a world map. Its obvious, it fits like a puzzle!<br />
