Scene 10. Doubter’s Chorus
The doubters rebuke Wegener for his model.
Know your lines! Speak clearly and loudly into the microphones. Good energy!
Doubters: Doubters on the continent (x8)
Look at this dude,
He’s not cool,
Talking about Pangea,
Sounding like a fool.
That’s not the truth,
We need some proof.
We highly doubt it,
So be quiet about it.

The scientific journey
Evidence for Pangea is growing, but much of the fossil evidence appeared on southern continents, and not in Europe and North America where the academic communities were largest. Not surprisingly, one of the leading supporters of Wegener’s model at this time was from South Africa, the heart of the fossil evidence.
