the ancient land masses had never drifted apart and, therefore,
today's world consisted of a single supercontintent?

2.  What would today's world be like if the land mass which formed the
Greek peninsula never existed?

3.  What would today's world be like if the land bridge which joined

example:  Italy, Greece, Florida, and Baja, and the tips of Africa,
