    Here is a theory there I suggests
    that instead of Pangaea the continents formed a
    belt around the equator, spun out as the earth cooled,
    as a centrifuge would.

    I presents redrawn maps
    to show how this concept would handle the magnetic
    orientations and transcontinental chemical parallel
    features, etc. I am sure that this is
    the only way the continents could possibly form.

    If you take a closer look at Gondwanaland who is the best evidence for Wegener`s theory, you can see the ONLY thing I have done, that is to move Gondwanaland away from Eurasia to explain those heavy
    mountain ranges there. The geoligist today have no explanation for this mountains over Eurasia today!

    To get North-America close to Europa, I only had to move Gondwanaland so far that all landmass on earth form a belt along Equator before N. America and Europa fits togheter as Wegener told us.

    That is the only thing I have done to get an explanation for the enormous mountain ranges we talk about. The result of this total necessary movement:

    Pangaea did NOT stretch from pol to pole on one side of the Earth, but was a belt along Equator. That explain tropical forest there where we find ice today as Svalbard and Antartica and so on.

    My theory is only a litle movement at Gonwanaland and that`s all.

    It takes 28 minutes to read the theory. You can find it here: www.aspevik.net

    You think the earth is rotating fast enough to have the effect of a centrifuge on such staggering land masses? Not likely. What you propose is equivalent to suggesting that a mosquito flying too close to your car will flip it over due to the wind gusts coming off its wings.

    No, if you take a closer look to all planets we know about, you can se they have one thing in common; all the planets are bulges at the equator and they are compressed at the poles.

    On Earth, this line lays about 15 kilometres farther out than the radius of the centre of the earth- and forward to the Poles.

    Tell me the about this forces that cause this?

    This thread is the exact same op as the one in Earth sciences right now so I vote moving this duplicate to the trash can.
