Pangaea and Peleg

When did the singular land mass (the dry land also known as Pangaea) Break into the seven continents of today? Much speculation surrounds this subject. There are the “old earthers” – evolutionists, the “young earthers” – creationist and a garden variety of inbetweeners. Personally, I am a creationist ascribing to the literal 6-day creation as presented in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. I have a complete study of this subject in draft process. The Flood of Noah’s day came about 1600 years after the Expulsion (of Adam and the woman from Eden.) The Flood was a cataclysmic even that flooded the dry land with the waters above the firmament and the waters under the earth. Form Noah we travel to the time of Abraham. In between we see the rise and fall of Nimrod’s Tower of Babel. Tracing the diaspora of the ancient Babylonians, we see in the record of lineage in the Bibe a person named Peleg. At least in those days, children upon birth were given a name consistent with a significant event of the day. Peleg in the Hebrew means great quaking. Most would marginalize that to mean there was a localized earthquake at the time of Pelegs birth. I don’t think so. I believe this great quaking was world-wide. I believe this is the moment the Dry Land began to break up into the continents we recognize today. Most earth scientists see plate tectonics, the movement of continental plates, as a linear event. I propose an alternate view. Suppose there was a perfectly level straight 1100 mile track with not cracks, hills, bumps, absolutely no irregularities. And, suppose you had a three wheeled cart so designed that it would trace this 1100 mile track with absolute precision that no energy was lost due to direction correction or the turning of the wheels. The only point of contact of the cart to the track would be the nearly razor thin tread of the three wheels of the cart. Challenge: how fast would you have to accelerate the cart with one burst of energy to make the cart travel 1100 miles in about 4000 years that at the end of that 4000 years it would still be...
