    Pangea

    I'm referring to the supercontinent that at one time consisted of every major peice of land.. North America, Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa, South America etc. then shifted and seperated over 180 million years ago and formed the modern world we know today. My question is, if Pangea never disbanded how much different do you think we as a people would be today? Culture, Language, Physical Appearances....would we even treat eachother better? Here is an image of how the once great continent looked.

    Are you sure that your source for that map is accurate? Back when Pangea was the world, India was still embedded in Africa, just south of Somalia.

    or so we think...

    I don't know. I mean, I guess we would be a little different. But there would still be nations prejidice against other nations, I don't think how close we're all together will ever change that. Though you have to wonder what would motivate the Renaissance...

    Nah, I was thinking the same thing. Plus, doesn't it seem logical that the border of Brazil be connected into the border of Africa. They look like a very fitting puzzle piece.
    Plus, The UK looks like it should be inside to norther Canada, with the border of Canada connected to Europe

    No, it's not correct. It's supposed to be like this:

    http://www.scotese.com/newpage8.htm

    The link will take you to a site that talks about it.

    You also need to remember that alot of dry land now used to be under water.
