It looks like our second debate is winding down. I enjoyed it as usual. A
comment. Yes, it does, but not to the extent that you would require between
David and Abraham.
>>Southern Mesopotamia was ocean 6800 years ago.
>The Rocky Mountains were ocean if we go back far enough in time.
Yes but there are no Recent oceanic deposits in the Rockies.
>the soil was so rich for growing crops is because it was an alluvial plain.
>Had it been oceanic I would have thought the soil should have been different.
>But maybe 2,000 years of nutrients washing down out of Turkey is enough (?)
The soil around Houston, Texas is nothing but the former ocean bottom.
Those soils are rich also. I think the item that Mesopotamia had which
allowed it to be an early agricultural site was a consistent water source
and the origination of farming just north of there.
