This was also addressed in previous discussions, but the reasons you cite below are certainly compelling enough to forgo making the list longer at this point.
By the way, if Thunderbird is correct and humans were once giant hominids (just as birds allegedly evolved from huge dinosaurs), then how can we be so sure that some of those large bones hanging off the museum's dino specimens aren't really from ancient humans?

Don't forget mechanical. Cadman proposed a good old fashion ram pump modeled after Kunkel's patent.

This may get resolved as more people enter the investigation who don't have a vested interested in the orthodox tenets. And with the help of the internet, it likely will not require the same number of centuries to resolve it as it took to get us in to this mess in the first place.
