Speculative STEM Thoughts — #Musings, #Pangaea

Popular Science posted an article on Pangaea a week ago or so (8/8/2013). It had a beautiful graphic that caught my eye on what the supercontinent looked like, if we super-impose today’s geo-political boundaries upon the supercontinent for reference. This is the source of my musing today.

Pangaea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, forming about 300 million years ago. I look at this image and it immediately evoked a serious of questions in my mind:

  • Did any landmasses disappear and should the map be more fuller?
  • For example, Atlantis, would it have appeared near England/France water areas?
  • How about the four great rivers of Genesis?
  • Did the islands, like Hawaii or the Azores appear after Pangaea?
  • Were there other islands that existed when Pangea did, but disappeared since?
  • Would Canada’s Hudson Bay & Great Lakes areas be land or water?
  • What about Caribbean Islands?
  • Does this SuperContinent shed any light on dinosaur fossil finds, if plotted against this map?

Well those were some of my musings when I saw that map? How about you? Did it give you pause to wonder? Email me!

Earth – Status – #Shakin’

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

A 5.8 MAGNITUDE  EarthQuake struck  DC and felt as far NYC. Locally, the quake ended court early  in MontCo, PA.

There is absolutely No Truth to rumor that Democrats & TeaParty Republicans agreed on something.

 

Just  A Whole Lot Of #Shakin’ Going On.
