It may seem strange but I agree with you on this point. I have been
proposing a very generalised model based on my word study of "Fountains"
of the great deep. I conclude that the word "fountains" should be
understood as conatiners or basins (as it is used in 'fountain' pen).
Thus the continual breakup for 150 days or so of the crustrial oceanic
basins would be a catastrophic cause for high energy movement of water.

As to how possible fossil pollen in supposed precambrian rocks fits into
such a model, I haven't a clue yet.
