The theory is called "Continental Drift."
It takes tons of years, probably millions of them, for there to be a completely noticeable change in the continents' position. This is because the continents move centimeters per year.

Plate titonics, is the gradual shifting of plates in the earths crust causing the continets to shift and move their positions.
