For many years it was believed by geologists that the location of the continents was fixed.These scientists believed that the locations of the continents was determined many billions of years ago,as the young Earth cooled down from its original state as a ball of molten lava.It was believed that the continents were simply areas where the crust was too high for the oceans to cover them over.
