  Plants The sixth sense/Geologic time/distance.

To all Friends,

All this discussion is great, but many that are giving their welcome
'opinions' do not seem to have the concept of how long geologic time really
is. The whole concept of geologic time and how long the life forms being
discussed have been on our planet is hard to grasp, much like distance----
many can not conceive (unless it is taught or properly explained to them)
the distance of stars from our earth. Untill some one (not me!) can
explain the meaning, concept and how to understand geologic time, we al
wasting the skin on the tips of our fingers debating this point.

If one wants to understand how 'natural selection' works, visit the
Galapagos Islands.

Just my silly opinion!!
