I recall being about 7 years old and looking at the globe. I could see that South America fit right up next to Africa almost perfectly. I really wanted to understand why…
Later as a freshman in college in 1978, I enrolled in a geology class. But curiously, our textbook, published in 1976, said little about one of the most important geological theories of our day: Plate tectonics. In of the 350 pages only one half a page outlined the theory. Modern geology texts give the “theory” at least a chapter (35 pages) and more. Why the difference? What happened? Well, two central critics (from Cambridge and Yale) opposed the theory, keeping it out of textbooks for over 60 years. Their motives likely involved fear of the new paradigm, or an overturning of their own research.
