Could be, but of course sometimes the people who are most
sure of their theory are the most disappointed when the
theories bite the dust! Healthy cynicism is a very valuable
thing for any scientist, particularly in an area when
the answer is _only_ availble through clear, deductive
reason, hard logic, and whatever tiny fragments of
fact that the fossil record might provide.

Why did the megafauna disappear? I certainly don't
_know_ and I really doubt that any of the respondents
to this newsgroup _know_ that answer.


P.S. Occam's Razor is a double-bitted ax!
