Researchers Find a Chunk of North America Stuck to Australia

Geologists from Curtin University in Perth, Australia, examined rock samples from the area around Georgetown in northern Queensland. Their analysis suggests that these rocks have chemical signatures very different from rocks found in the rest of Australia, and are quite similar to rocks found in Canada.

Apparently the continents have traveled around a lot in the past few gazillion years. Interesting stuff!

"The government" has some conspiracy going on to persuade people that continents drift more slowly than they actually do? My, this is news. The stuff you can learn here.

I hope someone puts a stop to those people so we can finally get the truth on these freewheeling continents and their fast ways.
