Re: The science of Col Barnett, or the Dinosaur Tracks at James Price Point, ...



Rescued from truncation:

I have just spent years telling them "how wrong this is", in long
confidential submissions about the importance of Broome Dinosaur
tracks. [Not confidential to hide my identity; confidential to hide
the whereabouts of the "best" dinosaur tracks.] I explained it at
length in 'Nature' (May 2011, in News Online, in response to J.M.
Crow)... and I just published a bloody huge paper in PLoS ONE showing
how wrong it is... but if a corrupt government doesn't WANT to believe
something, it will go on denying it (and trying to hide it) for ever.

Argh. That implies that only museum-quality specimens are of any
interest for science!!!
Somebody needs to tell them how wrong this is.
