Does the direction in which the earth rotates on it's axis have an effect on
plate tectonics and the shape of the continents? Does the direction of orbit
around the sun have an effect? Would it be possible to have a planet with
continents that are a mirror image of earth's, without also having rotation (or
orbit)in the opposite direction?
