How to Think About Minority Science Views — The Case of Plate Tectonics - Discovery Institute


The idea that continents drift is now taken for granted, but it wasn't always. In fact, when the theory was proposed by Alfred Wegener in 1912, it was mocked, until decades later after Wegener had already died, when the theory was ultimately accepted.
