The snags with this scenario are legion. For example, there are no descriptions of dead rats lying everywhere (this is explained by suggesting that either the rats were indoors, or people were so used to dead rats that they were not worth mentioning; though if they were indoors how did they travel so fast?)

I found this to be quite interesting. It seems that one researcher is noticing inconsistencies in the historical accounts of the Black Death. His research is starting to lead toward:
1) people and not rats were possibly responsible for the spread of the disease
2) it might not have been the bubonic plague at all
Is it possible that we don't know enough about this one event that was just a few hundred years ago, and if so then how much could our theories of dinosaur extinction or even how the pyramids were built be accurate enough to call them solved?
