RAY: What's interesting is your ability to articulate an interesting alternate big picture perspective of the Pre-Cambrian Explosion that is consistent with known facts--far better than simple evolution.
It could lead to a whole series of specific spin off discussions.
I'm with Ray, I think the Cro-Magnon/Pre-Cambrian post should be a new thread, as I'd be very interested in discussing both in more detail. (And FYI- That 'Lurker' image gives me the creeps;)
BTW thanos5150, thanks for the Cro-Magnon link, it was very informative. Also, regarding those Amazon links, I'm thinking of getting the 'Before the Pharaohs' book and was wondering if you thought that was the best of the bunch?
