Continental Undrift


Above is a prize winning Japanese rendition of the Earth’s land surface showing minimal spatial distortion compared to the standard Mercator projection.

Fitting South America onto Africa now becomes a bit of problem for not only continental drift theory but also for plate tectonics and earth expansioners.

Just observing/mentioning.

    Maybe not… in this format the landmasses begin to look like an origami template 🙂

    Discovering the right template might crystallise a few thoughts….


    • That’s using the present day sea-level boundary. Change it to the edge of the continental shelf and what then? You really need a decent bathymetric dataset to see what changing sea-levels do to the origami protocols.
