I'm a little confused. All the continents began as one separate but 
clumped together land mass, and gradually spread on their plates- 
So it it just me or did some continents change their positions on 
those plates. i.e. Has India turned slightly in relation to Australia 
or am I just imagining that.
I hope I made sense and that someone can answer my question
