Sorry but you are grasping at straws, it would take a divine miracle to
statify palynomorphs they way we see them stratified them in the geological
record. And if you are going to fall back on miracles, lets skip out of
scientific explainations and accept by faith that a Noah's flood happened
even though we do not have the evidence.
