  • It recognised the principles of civil liberty, equality before the law for men (not for women in the same sense), and the state's secular character.

  • The geologists see it differently though. They believe it's more of a "repeated collision" and call it plate boundaries. The three types of plate boundaries are: Convergent, Divergent, Transform.
  • These tectonic plates move at a rate of 1-2 inches per year.
