Pretty easily actually. IF one employs his or her brain.

One problem was that there shouldn't be monkeys in the New World, because that continent separated from Africa too early for them to have evolved or for people to bring them there.

Oh, and furthermore, Earth Crust Displacement isn't associated with evolutionary theory at all.
It is simply a geological hypothesis that nobody in academia has really taken the time to consider.

Look, here is the deal...
It doesn't require evolutionary theory to be incorrect in order for this to be considered.
All that it requires is that our time-lines be brought closer together.
Everything in the evolutionary record is based on geological findings. Skeletons found in the different layers of strata.
If we have evidence that these things considered modern are found in older strata then we need to relook at the evolutionary time scale that is dependant on the excepted geological time scale.
Saying that it is possible that man and dinosaur coexisted does not mean that evolutionary theory is incorrect.
Not by any means.
All it says is that we need to revisit the geology used to date the changes observed in the evolutionary model.
Please consider it.

Originally posted by undo for example, the pendulum went way too far to the opposite side. the position it maintains is untenable. it deliberately ignores EVERY ancient piece of evidence that casts doubt upon even the smallest detail. if it can't ignore it, it reinterprets it so that it agrees. and if it can't do that, it pretends that it agrees even when it's clear it does not. ...the only persons capable of modifying that position are a very select few at the top of the heap and they are all on each other's payroll and good buddy program.
One of the construction blocks from the pier was fashioned from a stone block that weighs an estimated 440 tons (equal to nearly 200 full-size cars). Several other blocks are between 100 and 150 tons. The quarry for these giant blocks was on the western shore of Titicaca, some ten miles away. There is no known technology in all the ancient world that could have transported stones of such massive weight and size. The Andean people of 500 AD, with their simple reed boats, could certainly not have moved them. Even today, with all the modern advances in engineering and mathematics, we could not fashion such a structure.
