|(For Schindewolfe had to admit that the empirical record revealed no direct evidence at all for a catastrophic mechanism of mass extinction, and he therefore had to seek a potential cause that would leave no testable sign of its operation! Can one possibly imagine an unhappier situation for science? - to face the prospect of a plausible explanation that does not, in principle, leave evidence for its validation.)"|
But if that fails, cherry-picking the data is worth trying.
