    We also both know that there is nothing planar about the Okefenokee, yet
    eastern US coals primarily have planar, sharp contacts with the substrate
    and with partings in the coal. And these planar coals may cover
    thousands of square miles.

    Now, Glenn, will you admit that the evidence regarding these coal seams
    in the eastern US points toward an allochthonous origin, even though they
    cover most of the eastern half of the continent?

    As you should know, your answer will carry a lot of baggage if you are
    willing to follow the evidence where it leads. To date, you have avoided
    the implications through the use of some microscopic analogy like the
    Okefenokee. Come on, join the hunt. Fraid of gettin snake-bit?
