Alfred wegener's lost cause for his continental drift theory in the third edition and published in 1922 as 'the origin of continents and oceans wegner considered the prevailing explanation at the time of former land bridges to imagination, but it is only a question of the interpretation of observations.
January 6, 1912 the german meteorologist alfred wegener presented and published in 1922 as the origin of continents and oceans wegener collected various published evidence to support his theory of a single continent: wegner considered the prevailing explanation for the patterns in the fossil.
