in reply to The worst case scenario

Good point about the drift. Of course, that doesn't explain how you get fossilized fish on top of mountains, or wolly mammoths frozen solid, but that's another discussion entirely.

I won't continue the debate / argument further, but I would like to point out that having varied interests doesn't mean that you're automatically worthy of being ignored. It just means you're creative. I bet lots of Perlmonks have unusual interests; for instance, I'm a member of the International Jugglers Association.

    Drifting continents have a lot of momentum. They don't stop on a dime, and when they collide the sea floor increases in elevation as the contents buckle (i.e. The sea floor is pushed up, forming mountains).

      *sigh* And here I was expecting your post to end with continents ramming schools of fish and sending them flying through the air rather than simple creation of mountain ranges.
        Yeah, but when living fish are flung up into the mountains during these collisions, they don't fossilize; they evolve and learn to walk.
