Continental Drift Theory Denied:
Symmetry of Land Mass | Water Mass on Earth

© 27 June 2016

by Charles William Johnson

The continental drift thesis proposes a random drifting movement for the land mass on Earth. Said theory ignores the relationship between land mass and water mass. Supposedly there exists a 95% match between the oriental coast of South America and the western coast of Africa, as though ocean water had no effect upon these land masses during their proposed 250,000,000 years of drifting. Continental drift ideas propose an asymmetry among the shapes of the different land masses on Earth.

The following illustrations show the symmetry between the East and West continental land mass, with continental Africa between them, forming an obvious equilibrium as central land mass. Given the axial inclination of the Earth one may compare the symmetry accordingly. Antarctica is included in the West continental land mass given its connection and extension to the land mass of South America.

The quantification of the surface area of the different continental land masses on Earth reveals symmetries that are pronounced and even obvious. Aside from the similarity in the Y-shape between the two East | West continental masses, their square areas are nearly equal as the data show.

West Continental Land Mass 22.9 million square miles.
East Continental Land Mass 24.1 million square miles.
Africa with 11.7 million square miles; nearly half of each of the other two grouped continental land masses.

The following illustrations show geophysical facts, not speculative theses. The indicated relationships of water|land masses in the following illustrations deny the speculative nature of the so-called continental drift theory.

As mentioned above, the previously indicated relationships of water|land masses on the illustrations deny the speculative nature of the so-called continental drift theory. Continental drift theory, proposed one hundred years ago by Alfred Wegener, suggests a random drifting motion of the continental land mass on Earth, such that once there existed a super-continent, Pangaea, that broke up into the continents of today. The cited 95% match between the oriental coast of South America and the western coast of Africa supposedly represented an attempt to prove the drift thesis. If that were true, and the continents did drift for 250 million years, then it would mean that the random drifting motion during that extensive period exerted little or no erosion upon the two coastlines (under 5%). Identifying a modified match at the continental shelf level represented another attempt to prove their “drift” thesis.

Accepting the idea of random continental land mass drift for 250 million years, would further mean believing that the two different continental land masses reached a relation of equilibrium today through mere random motion. As the illustrations show, there exists a close physical equivalency and symmetry of a 40% to 40% distribution of land mass for the two cited land masses. The remaining 20% of continental land mass in Africa is neatly tucked between them. In my view, random drifting of land mass on Earth, in relation to ocean water mass, could not have produced the apparent relationship of equilibrium and symmetry as of the random breakup of the super-continent, Pangaea.

The quantification of the surface area of the different continental land masses on Earth reveals symmetries that are pronounced and even obvious. Aside from the similarity in the Y-shape between the two East | West continental masses, their square areas are nearly equal as the data show.

The so-called theory of continental drift is denied by the obvious interrelationship between land mass and ocean water mass on Earth as they exist today (and existed at the time Wegener proposed his drift theory). The so-called thesis of continental drift represents a speculative idea about land mass on Earth without consideration for the relationship of land mass to water mass on Earth.
