>>It is an urban myth that Wegener was ridiculed in any extreme way. <<
I first heard about Wegener's theory when I was in the 9th grade in 1961.
I found a book in the school library that talked about it. Then I did not
get the impression of any ridicule being directed his way. What I did get
was that most people who heard about it agreed, but just didn't know how it
actually happened and that someday the mystery will eventually be solved.
