The question I would ask:
How many Evolutionist lovers in here believe that Continental Drift is something that was 'predicted' by the Evolutionists side and believe that it is a 'pro-evolution' discovery?
Probably most of you.
In fact, this was a shocker to everyone and confounded Evolution theory and posed a massive problem.
Continental Drift had been suggested earlier on but it was only just recently confirmed and accepted at large.
It was so problematic for Evolutionists that to this day nobody has really been able to come up with a decent explain-around for it.
When I was in school the explanation was that animals must have floated across oceans on little logs. Then the next best explanation was that all the animals traveled up the entire Earth.. over an ice or land bridge in the Arctic and then all the way back down again. Like an animal parade.
Like Egyptian people traveled all the way up to north east Russia, over the ice bridge to Alaska and all the way down to central America where they started a parallel culture.
Genesis offers some clues and did so long before the 1960s. The Earth 'gathered together in one place'.
Although the cataclysmic global flood doesn't specifically tell us all consequences it does tell us of subterranean breaks and is on a scale that would call for such a thing as continents busting up.
Later there is an era called 'the days of Peleg' which we are told is when the Earth was dividing.
If you get into YEC flood models, the idea of the Earth expanding is fairly popular now and some non-YEC people are taking a look at that one too. Rather than 'drifting' apart it is the Earth expanding (think of a balloon).
but yeah, its a huge problem for evolution.
