People on the internet will argue about anything. Let's do this.

I voted for Ur. It like its name. I also like how it contains land from both India and Antarctica. I find that to be delightfully bizarre.

Gondwana. Next best thing to having a supercontinent called Straya.

RE: Favorite Prehistoric Supercontinent
I just saw a documentary about Ur not long ago, and we learned about Pangaea and Gondwana and Vaalbara in class in HS, but really only the names and general locations. My 8-year-old son researched this stuff himself and knows all about it tho; he'd love this thread.

Apparently at least parts of the Middle East were a water world at one point! And there may have even really been that Biblical flood or even floods like it.

I'm sentimental if you know what I mean.

There is some geological evidence of an extremely large flood in that area. However, you probably wouldn't see that in the time scale we're talking about here. The first things that could be called humans started showing up about six million years ago, and homo sapiens has only been around for about 200,000 years. Compared with the last 3.3 billion years as shown in the video, that's basically nothing.
