Well of course Alfred Wegner's theory was that pieces of land had moved apart over time because we didn't always have continents. So people thought that he was crazy because they didn't know how big islands such as North America ould move so far apart. So they went with Alfred Wengner's apponent Eduard Suess's idea. His idea wasthat all of that land just built up from the ground and as a result of that the Earth was shrinking. If his theory was right we wouldn't be here right now.
