I wonder who used the term megaflood? Ice ages have come and gone for
either 3 or 30 million years. Depending on which number mentioned in the
Dvd "Ice World", about the development of permanent settlement in ice age
Europe that I just got you believe. I actually thought the first ice age
was just before teh Cretaceous ended, and it was indeed caused by the modern
placement of the continents. "Ice World" makes the argument that the ice
ages ahve shaped mammalian and human evolution, forget about megafloods.
It repeatedly forced us to become more intelligent and to change our
lifestyle in response to the changing environment.
Sea levels have risen and fallen over time with the ice ages. Each time
there would probably have been "megafloods", but I seriously thought a less
dramatic development has repeatedly separated Britain from the mainland.
Grin. It only took - rises and falls in the sea level.
Do I really want to look at this Nature article? From what I'm hearing I'm
in no hurry to go look at it. I'm not going to have any patience if
Creationist papers are suddenly appearing in Nature. Or is it there
because this is the subject of a future Discovery Channel special?
