Creationist theory and plate tectonics do not disagree in any way.

The theory of plate tectonics explains large scale motion of the earth's lithosphere.

Plate tectonics is considered to be a unifying theory because a consensus finds it to be true. Most scientists believe the plate tectonics cause volcanoes and earthquakes.

Plate tectonics is a theory and not a law because there is no way that we can observe how the plates move, therefore it remains a theory. Plate tectonics is an explanation that is accepted as to why Earth's continents are where they are today.

But plate tectonics is the theory which suggests that the Earth's crust is made up of solid plates moving relative to each other. Plate tectonics and the plate tectonics theory aren't really two separate things. However plates are pieces of the Earth's crust which are moving.

That is the current theory of plate tectonics.

The theory of plate tectonics was accepted after the discovery of sea floor spreading.

Summarize the important aspects of the tectonics Theory.

The theory of plate tectonics explains large scale motion of the earth's lithosphere.

it wasnt accepted. Wegener's theory of continetal drift wasnt accepted. the theory of plate tectonics was created when scientists discovered about sea floor spreading and magnetic reversals. but i dont know when the theory of plate tectonics was created. so you can ask about that.

Plate tectonics is the theory used to explain the structure of the Earth's various formations and plate boundaries between the major tectonic plates.

The theory of plate tectonics explains large scale motion of the earth's lithosphere.

The theory of plate tectonics is that all the continents were once together in a land mass called Pangea and that plate tectonics(which means the earth moved ex earthquakes) moved the continents to the way they are today

The theory is called plate tectonics.
