Many people have a distorted view of the world and relative sizes of the continents. Our American maps typically draw the United States as being around the same size as Africa, but as this satellite image shows, the entire USA fits neatly into one corner of that continent. In fact, it’s hard to understand why Africa is considered its own continent since it’s so firmly connected to Asia. Europe even more so. Europe is a fraction of the size it typically appears. India as well seems tiny in comparison to its relative size on most maps.
I’ve long believed the continents represent the crust of the original earth, a much smaller earth that began its life as a ball of hot plasma. As the planet cooled, she expanded and the crust broke open and the few inches of water that covered the entire planet rushed into the cracks. The size of the ocean shows how much larger the earth has grown since.
Of course, this is a renegade view not supported by universities, but it would explain why dinosaurs are found on all the continents. And if you believe the current paradigm, continents float around and crash into each other? Does that make as much sense as saying the earth is expanding, and as the various crusts cool over the eons, they create massive plates that interact with each other?
