Supercontinent Pangeon Obscura: Contrasting Secular Geophysics with Theological Ratiocinations

Richard L. Amoroso


Before geologist E. Suess scientifically proposed a supercontinent he named Gondwanaland in 1885, over 3,300 years earlier, around 1450 BC, Moses wrote of a supercontinent in the Book of Genesis regarding division of Earth at the time of Peleg, “for in his days was the earth divided” (Gen. 10:25). The next step, the first sufficiently detailed and comprehensive theory of continental drift proposed in 1912 by meteorologist A. Wegener, postulated from geologic and paleontological data, that most geologic time had only one continent, which he called Pangea. Using the seven contemporary continents as puzzle pieces, geophysicists have proposed four versions of a Peleg-like Pangea supercontinent. Utilizing additional theological insights, in conjunction with the Hand of God putatively driving the evolution of continental drift, a 5th global supercontinent Pangeon Obscura is proposed, illustrating how Jerusalem (Israel) and Zion (New Jerusalem on the American continent) will merge to occupy the same location by the end of the Judeo-Christian-Islamic Millennium.
