Apologies for getting off topic, but scientists miss the most obvious stuff sometimes. When I was 12, I pointed out to my geography teacher that not only did SA and Africa fit together, the mountain ranges did too. I was dismissed. I also asked how a blob of molten Earth could be thrown off Earth and form the moon (the Pacific Ocean basin was considered to be the result of that at the time). I was dismissed. At 15, I asked where birds came from, and if small dinosaurs maybe had feathers. I was dismissed. At 18, I asked about where mammals originated, how ice ages were caused, how sexual reproduction started, and things like that. I was dismissed.
Being apparently stupid, I majored in History and Political Science, and spent a career in Federal Civil Service managing telecommunications.
Thank Darwin I never became a scientist. I would have really messed things up!
