Does anyone know the reference for the designation of 'elected Type'
of _Homo sapiens_ that Bakker wrote last year? If Cope is now
considered as Type of the species, then everyone will have to
measure up to a palaeontologist. I always thought that Linnaeus had
designated himself as Type of the species and as his skeleton still
exists (as far as I am aware), then surely his skeleton should have
remained the Type?
The other thing is a new theory of plate tectonics. The meteorite, hit
the Earth and all the continents did a double flip. If you look at
Psihoyos and Knoebber (Hunting Dinosaurs) 1994, page 7, you will
see the continents are shown part way through the flip. ;-)
