Where are the subduction zones for Africa?

http://preearth.net/africa-expansion.jpg

The quote;

"The above picture has many features that are problematic for the current theory of continental drift. For example; How can Africa be drifting east, away from the mid-Atlantic ridge, and west, away from the Indian mid-ocean ridge, at the same time? How is it that Africa is also drifting north, away from the Antarctic mid-ocean ridge in the south? Where are the subduction zones? Why are the only subduction zones found in the Mediterranean, which is to the north? How does all this spreading, east and west, end up being subducted in the north? And, why is the region of subduction zones so small, in comparison to the region of spreading ridges?

The Antarctic continent is an even more extreme example of these problems. I will not dwell on the many problems of the current theory of continental drift, but wish to point out, that the reason the African plate appears to have expanded around continental Africa, and the reason that the Antarctic plate appears to have expanded around Antarctica, is probably because they did."

from http://preearth.net/ asks; Where are the subduction zones for Africa?

So,... where are they?

This is an honest question. I have no idea where they are supposed to be.

I want to know what scientists actually believe.

I want to know what the scientific establishment believes to be the case.

A link to a few scientific papers, and/or the attaching of such papers to this thread would be fine.

without providing a scientific paper or link to such, while claiming the patently false "everything was answered." And even if everything had been answered, why is that a reason to close a thread?

See redundant topic Where are the subduction zones for Africa (the topic concerns continental drift)? (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php/105487-Where-are-the-subduction-zones-for-Africa-(the-topic-concerns-continental-drift)) Look for other new topics on the same subject nearby in the future.

Dejavu: all around the Pacific, north Med, and still no extra mass.

Are we done?

The closing of the previous thread is ridiculous.

Unless I am dealing with a conspiracy of "moderators," this should cause serious concern.

Really? I didn't notice one good answer. Oh,... so you think your answer/s were good?

You should repeat it/them here so that all can see it/them.

So those reading can judge for themselves.

Is it your objective to drive away all real scientists and be left with only a forum of propagandists?

Have you even glanced at the rules of this board?

You were told what the scientists believe, what the scientific establishment believes and were given a link to a whole pile o papers.

What exactly are you looking for, fawing adolation?

You were told what the scientists believe, what the scientific establishment believes,....

So then, tell us again, exactly what the scientific establishment believes,....

so everyone else can see if what you say, they say, is true.
