Slide 95 of 109

At one time, all the present continents were part of one super-continent, Pangea. However, well before man was created, this continent began to separate. By the time humans were created, the continents were quite similar to what we see today. The world's oceans have formed geographic barriers that have separated the continents. However, during the last ice age, sea levels dropped several hundred feet, temporarily connecting the major continents. It has been proposed that God scattered the human populations during the time that the continents were temporarily connected.
