A New Ocean Is Forming Under Your Feet Right Now

Normally, our lifetime is too short to see any major changes. We don’t notice mountains rise, the way rivers change their course, or how oceans are created. Entire valleys may be sinking, but it usually takes too long for them to sink entirely. Still, a group of scientists recently noticed there’s a new ocean being formed really fast and we can even witness it appear. Not far away from the Horn of Africa peninsula, the sixth ocean is being born at the moment!

By the way, there’s a theory that claims the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans might just cease to exist, forming the new ocean basin. Eurasia will be split to form a new ocean, and all the continents will migrate to merge into the supercontinent. Another possible scenario claims the continents might merge into the uniform landmass, or form a circle with a large sea inside, and the Super Pacific Ocean outside. And since all the continents keep drifting northwards even now, it’s quite probable that almost all of them will meet up somewhere at the North Pole. So, here’s how the Earth might change in millions of years.

Lol. I'm Sorry. No There Is No Ocean Forming In the Middle of The African Continent. Africa is Where Humans Originated. Ancient Continent. Maybe A New Continent Might Form in the Pacific Ocean. Now There is a Video For BRIGHTSIDE.

If one day the continents "get the band back together" so to speak, then I wonder what that would mean for the Super Pacific? Would it have huge hurricanes or typhoons that could gather tremendous strength, since they could go much of the way around the planet without a land mass to weaken them?

Mickey Barradas December 13, 2020 - 11:00 PM

The other Theory is that Earth IS expanding and the continents will be further apart. Thus with atmosphere changes will affect Humans and follow by Darwin's Theory we will need to evolve or die out due to the changes.
