1. the plates don't move the way Wegener says
2. the plates don't fit together the way he says : two minerals are identical doesn't mean they were made in the same place and that, given the enormous number of geological formations in Europe and North America, it was not surprising that a few would match up.

Three, the amount of geologic time necessary to complete such an action of modern, global continental drift, was too short.
