      Tin: ..of course you are incorrect.
      You can't even start with a correct
      word.

      Tin: Your response is not relevant to the fact
      that fossilization is rare.


      Are you claiming that most life
      fossilizes Tong ? Are you having
      another aliens, foot fetish, insanity
      moment ?


      It is simply a fact that most life
      doesn't fossilize.


      Why are you arguing with reality ?
