Alfred Wegener made a proposition in 1912, which stated that a number of the continents seemed to neatly fit into a sort of jig saw puzzle thus implying that these continents were once a single land mass-which he called “pangaea”.geological studies of these continents in the past-refered to as continental plates-have revealed that indeed they fit together as well as the plates under seas and oceans to form a continous land mass that probably existed billions of years back during the formation of the planet earth.
