Main Question or Discussion Point

Here is a website that shows the arrangement of the continents and seas at a range of past times (105-750 MYA).
It was made by Ian Webster, a software engineer.
This a lot like a similar but less good iPad app I used to have that was (like Ancient Earth) based on the work of Christopher Scotese.
I consider it a nice tool for seeing what ancient environments were like. I was also able to get a movie from Scotese to use in a presentation of where the research animal, the zebrafish (Danio rerio) came from.
Here is an article on the How Stuff Works website that has an interview of Scotese.
