_Every_ piece of obversational data....? As I recall, when you and I
discussed the Pittsburg Coal seam, you were asking for help because you
hated to see any YEC argument go unanswered. And after it was all said
and done, you begrudgingly admitted that the most logical model to
explain the data was an allochthonous (floating mat) model rather than
the autochthnous (swamp) model. Have you now come up with an explanation
for how you can imagine depositing a thin, widespread clay or shale
parting in a swamp? Or, did you just forget about the Pittsburg Coal?
