Lubenow did not say so directly, but, yes, he did imply so. Part of his
world view, of course. I give him points for consistency!
I appreciate the rest of your post, of course. My interest in the book is
in what Lubenow claims as his expertise -- fossil bones of hominids. His
case on this subject, which does not rest at all on a YEC position, is very
persuasive to this non-expert.
