Here's an idea.

Why don't you ask Firestone about flash frozen mammoths?

He'd laugh you out of the room.

If you cherry pick what parts of scientific investigations you [i]prefer[/i] to believe, you can support any idiotic theory at all.

The idea that you can dismiss the C14 dates of these mammoths with a wave of your hand (with no reason whatsoever, in other words) and then simply decide in your mind - again, for no reason whatsoever - that they all died simultaneously is laughable.

Not to mention all the other bogus, so-called "evidence" of flash freezing (tropical vegetation in the teeth and stomachs, etc.)

Like I said, Hancock forwarded this lie in FOTG along with many others. He had the info available that utterly debunks this claim (except for Audrey) and so should have known better, assuming he didn't know better already.

Same is true for the Pacal sarcophagus I mentioned, and dozens of other claims he noted in that book.

This alone is the reason I won't buy another of his "works."
