In 1915, the German geologist and meteorologist Alfred Wegener first proposed the theory of continental drift, which states that parts of the Earth's crust

slowly drift atop a liquid core. The fossil record supports and gives credence to the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics.


Continental drift theory is supported by 4 evidences that wegener found. 1. The apparent fit of the continents, 2. Rock and mountain correlation, 3. Fossil correlation 4. Paleoclimatic data. Wegener died before knowing the reason why continents move.
