After 30 years in the business of Earth Science, I ask of you that you can tell me the difference between Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics? It appears that some people may actually think that they are not one and the same!

Roberto Mantovani the father of Plate Tectonics is listed as a violinist in order that Wegener can get the glory of his work !! Wikipedia will not do justice and put the record right !! Not only in order to deliver max demise to the father of Plate tectonics astonishingly Wikipedia makes no reference to Mantovani whatsoever!

A certification beyond doubt that my books on the systematic demise of Italian history its actively on the way! Take a look on what Wikipedia says about Roberto Mantovani the father of plate tectonics and Alfred Wegener! I CHALLENGE ANY GEOSCIENTIST IN THE WORLD TO SAY THAT ROBERTO MANTOVANI IS NOT THE FATHER OF PLATE TECTONICS AND THAT WEGENER DID NOTHING!

Wikipedia will not allow a single article of mine to stay. I wonder why? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 01:12, 10 September 2007

It is remarkable to see that Roberto Mantovani construct the entire theory of Plate Tectonics when Wegener was only 9 Years old, and Wegener got the recognition for it! Roberto Mantovani gave the theory of Continental drift to the world, and now Wegener is the father of it?

Furthermore it is remarkable that there are no references to Mantovani in the Wikipedia Wegener Biography. The truth is that Mantovani established the theory of plate tectonics in its entirety, Wegener made a copy Of it and come out with the same identical theory ( in his own word Mantovani's work on Continental drift was remarkably similar! And now Wegener takes the glory for it! Indeed both man were erroneous when describing the Mechanism responsible for the drifting of continents, and took some 70 years after Mantovani's death with the development of Seismic, gravity and magnetic and computer science to be able to shape the science of continental drift. Wegener was not honest when he wrote the note as to Mantovani's work, for he never said that he took Mantovani's theory and became a prominent follower. Weger embarked to offer a different view as to the Mechanisms responsable for Continental Drift. Wegener in changing montovani idea of thermal expansion Proposed a theory for far more incorrect, one of centrifugal force “being the responsible factor for explaining continental drift“ !

But I would go further to prove the injustice toward Mantovanis recognition of his revolutionary work, by taking Wikipedia historians to look at the Alfred Wegener page! There is no clear reference to Roberto Mantovani when addressing the historical development of the so called "Wegener Theory of Continental Drift”! This is like looking into the history of the development of quantum mechanics and not mentioning Heisenberg or looking into the history page of Wolfang Pauli and not finding a reference to Heisenberg. 22:38, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. You will find that if you take the trouble to observe the Wikipedia:ManualOfStyle that your efforts will gain more favourable attention from other editors. There may be substance to what you say about Mantovani, although the references seem pretty scarce. By all means work to improve the quality of the article. Cite more sources, by multiple verifiable writers. I've taken the unusual liberty of copyediting your above to render it somewhat closer to the form that's expected here, while trying not to change your meaning.LeadSongDog 05:42, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
