I find it amazing & think the world will just end up as small islands splattered around the globe

Geophysicists have calculated that in 10 million years the East African Rift System will be as large as the Red Sea. When that happens, Africa will lose its horn.

I hope everyone realizes that it will take millions of years for the rift to split open enough to form a new sea. At this point in my life I have no plans to wait around for this to happen.
Places like Vancouver Island are also on the move, but it's only traveling an inch or two a year.
(that's why the B.C. Ferries keep jacking up ticket prices) :shk:
It's a dynamic world we live on, but geology is very slow compared to our brief lifespans.....
