Re: extinction

Hi James,

I agree with you that the post-K-T hydrologic cycle may have been pretty
screwed up.  But to think of the entire K-T earth as one big erosional
surface is similar to the *reationist belief that the whole earth was at
one time entirely flooded.

I can see where my comment could be misinterpreted.
