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?
