    I feel like this supports Pangea in a literal sense because God gathered all the waters and let the dry land appear. It doesnt seem like there are seperate continients from me reading this, but it seems like he gathered the waters in a place and all the land formed together in a place.

    It don't say in one place. Dry land appeared all over the world in different places. Not in one place.

    You could be right at that initial creation, of establishing the dry land (a super continent) & the waters. However, we aren't told any more about the formation of continents, whether the Great Flood had an impact on this, or maybe subsequent major shifting of the tectonic plates or other factors that might cause a division of the land.

    The only other (slight) reference we have is in Genesis 10:25: "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan." In the lifetime of Peleg there was a division of the Earth; whether this speaks of the physical division of the land mass or the dividing of people groups into other areas as a result of the new land masses, is debatable.
