I'm not really sure what you mean. Conteniental drift has nothing to do with creationism.
That's why I said "elaborate" ... it's not obvious, but non-the-less it's what is driving the theory.
The landmass is the thick part, that isolates the hot inner core from the surface. If the mechanics were so simple, then if the mass was lining on a
single side of the planet ... the thin, ever recreating surface would line the other side ... and if that occurs, this little piece of work would mean
the inner core and it's immensely hot, expanding outer core would be wobbling towards that thin oceanic layer ...
... and then we would be no more.
The continental drift theory, doesn't hold water ... it's based on the assumption, that the inner core is so stable that it will hold everything
else together, as if bound by purpose, rather than natural chaos.
And the only reason it is accepting, is because the majority of the people on this planet are religious or political, and all their line of thought
... is that they have a purpose. Therefore, they ... and you, are not inclined to scrutinize the theory, adequately.
You may notice, if you are observant ... that I am not argueing Expansion ... because expanding earth is not important. Because it isn't correct.
We know some facts, but not enough to understand the why. So a stable theory at this point, is not possible ...
But you need one, and all the other 5 billion religious and political fanatics out there, who must have a purpose to kling to.
To give it to you more sarcastically, the majority of mankind must ask the question which is in itself ok ... but they also must have an answer to the
And The bible, Big Bang and continental drift ... are the answer 42.
The answer isn't important ... but at least you have one.
