Have we always had the same continents we have now?

    Yes and no. The majority of land masses with the exception of islands, are floating on top of the liquid lava mantel layer on what are called continental plates. These plates, through a phenomenon known as plate tectonics, move all over the Earth’s surface, migrating over millions of years. We have always had the same continental plates, just in different configurations. For instance, the country of India sits on its own plate, and smashed into the Asian continent thousands of years ago creating the Himiliayian Mountains. During the time of the dinosaurs, all the land masses were connected in one super-continent known as Pangea.
