True. So why do you insist on making a big deal from this ambiguous (and
essentially statistically meaningless) evidence? Why was the subject of aqueous
depositional environments even brought up by your side in this discussion to begin
Elaine, it would REALLY help our discussions if you would take the time to
actually READ-up on some of the taphonomic literature before you start whining about
why such ambiguous evidence doesn't disprove your side's ideas. It's ambiguous
evidence, for *hrist's sake...
