Before I would comment on this, I'd want to go back to some maps showing
continental drift, to see if there was a continent a few million years
back where the Atlantic ocean can now be found. If these changes happen
over vast ages, it does not necessarily have to be a "rising" or "sinking"
of continents. 

What's Cayce's slant on this?
