No, it is because it violates observation. In your Gestaldo critique I
would appreciate it if you would address one point he raised. I finished
reading that yesterday and the fact that the rootlets off the stigmarian
axis are always at 90 degrees to the axis. If the stigmaria had been
emplaced in the mud by transport, there should be deformation of the
rootlets. I would appreciate seeing your response to that.
