Theory of Plate Tectonics

Vocabulary1. convergent boundary - a plate boundary where two plates move toward each other2. divergent boundary - a plate boundarywhere two plates move away from each other3. fault - a break in the crust along which rocks move4. plate - a section of the lithosphere that slowly moves over the asthenosphere carrying pieces of the crust5. plate tectonics - the theory that the pieces of earth's lithosphere are in constant motion, driven by convection currents in the mantle6. rift valley - a deep valley that forms when two plates move apart7. transform boundary - a plate boundary where two plates move past each other

3.3 The Theory of Plate Tectonicsby Sarah J.

Key ConceptThe theory of plate tetonics states that Earth's plates are in slow, constant motion, driven by convection currents in the mantle.(Evolutionist viewpoint) This means that the plates are continuously moving very slowly because of the convection currents, which carry the pieces of the lithosphere.

Something I disagreed with in this section and whyIn the book, it says that before Pangaea existed, there were other super continents that formed and split apart over the last billion years and Pangaea formed between 350 and 250 million years ago. It also says that Pangaea broke up over the last 200 million years. I disagree with this because the Bible reveals that the earth is only around 6,000 years old, not millions or billions.
