The very interesting thing was covered in one of my journals (I admit I hadnt opened a few since before my operation). ANYWAY, the whole story about the evolution of marsupials an wallabies and roos, doesnt have a damn thing to do with Mt Ararat and Noah. It has to do with the fact that (as I said previously) AUSTRALIA was separated from ASIA by ANTARCTICA. Marsupials and monotremes had attained early structural phenotypic status by the Jurassic , and , as the Pangea supercontinent started to separate and present day ocesn basins began to appear , the early marsupials had rached what would become Australia and began to evolve while Antarctica and Australia were still joined.
SO, with this as a "falsifiability statement' (that being, If Australian marsupials eveolved separate from Asia, they should have left fossils on ANTARCTICA.
Well sir, several years ago a bunch paleontologists, surmizing that kangaroo ancestors could possibly have been on Antarctica because this landmass and AUSTRALIA wre continuously joined until the earlyCretaceous when at lleast seven of the 9 mammal classes were in the China lowlands and several key species (Ancestors of monotremes and autralian type marsupials ). The placentals were nver found in this area because they were apparently separated by mountain ranges of the Mongolian Plateau. So, the paleontologists looked for several years in Antarctica and found, you guessed , several species of wallabie and monotreme fossils(Teinolophus
(This guy had all the attributed of a platypus except a large bill, instead it had brackets of flat teeth in a tenontosaurian
So the path of evolution of the monotremes and certain marsupials took off around 90 my ago qhen Australia separated from Antarctica which separated from Pangea about 110 my ago.
Lota expeditions get funded by falsifiability gambles.
Id like to know of any expeditions so falsifiably based that failed to find what they said they were going out looking for.
Even Cope and Marsh had general ideas of the stratigraphic controls of the rock bodies they were hunting in the US wet.
So far, as much as i can tell, no discoveries have been made using ID CID style thinking.
That alone sorta deflates a lot of their BS stories about "designers" and "jesus lecturing his posse about the fossil record" , and "design programs"
