It is often (always?) said that if you view the movement of the
continents backwards through time, you end up at a point where
all the present land masses were one giant continent. If this is
true, then why was this the case? It seems unlikely that when
the Earth formed you ended up with all the high portions (above
sea level) being in one mass and not spread evenly around.
