This question is basically related to my former question: What would change if our Earth lacked mountains? (Geology)
So in my world people have stopped at a level of wisdom that might be similar to the one of the end of the 7th century.
I assume that scientists -in this world- are able to communicate and share wisdom easily as this world isn't too big: communication via letters etc. wouldn't take more than a few weeks. So maybe some have got the latest technology but could communicate it to others who were much better in deducing or in experimental matters etc..
Would their scientists or people of wisdom be able to describe the phenomenon of tectonics?
How would they describe it?
Would they be able to understand the phenomenon of earthquakes and tectonics, for example would they realize that mountains are a among the results of earthquakes or would they rather reverse cause and effect.
Maybe one could say my focus is on the relationship between earthquakes and Mountains and how they might explain it (scientifically).
