well i understand that where i live presently it was covered with water and there is a definite layer of ocean floor type fossils here in the rock. i
even pulled a small slab of this out of a rock wall when i was working for the states highway dept. and i studied it. it has coral and other signs of
marine life and seems to be comprised mostly of sand like material. safe to say it was part of an ocean floor.
BTW i live in kentucky.
there are things being learn about the US all the time but because its not as big a deal (to some anyway) as other things like bashing bush we miss
out on these "finds" in america. i'm pretty sure i'm unaware of abouit 95% of the finds made in america. i know there were dinosaurs here once
along with mammoths. i know there were HUGE glaciers thats covered most of what is now america. as for human history in america...we're always
finding new things.
this is a very important find though. the theory goes that people migrated to the americas during the ice age when there was a land bridge between
asia and north america and determining the date of this find could disprove that. MAYBE. or it will help us learn more about the first people that
settled on the north american continent and how they lived. i think its interesting but some may not. then again this is right up my alley and what
i want to study in college so i am bit biased in my feelings about this.
