"But let's not pretend that the role of pope in ancient times was even slightly analogous to the modern institution of 'Pope'.  Peter was the bishop of Antioch, and there is no historical evidence that the various counsels of…"

"There does seem to be a lot of problems with the state of the ground at the site. One side argues that the tools were found under an unbroken layer of ash, the other that this is false. I suppose it's probably best to discount the site until or…"

"As I recall the site was difficult to date because the ground had been disturbed and the layers of gravel distributed.  Last I heard there were a few potential dates for it, but never anything as old as the one that the graduate student had…"

"That's interesting. This site does seem very strange, particularly the fact that all the tools were made from non local materials. Wasn't the site also supposed to have been quite difficult to date for some reason? I'm no expert but I…"

"If that is the date that I think it is then it did have some controversy surrounding it and still has some quirks.  The original controversy came from a single graduate student who jumped on irregularities to push a radical hypothesis for a…"

There does seem to be a lot of problems with the state of the ground at the site. One side argues that the tools were found under an unbroken layer of ash, the other that this is false. I suppose it's probably best to discount the site until or unless better information becomes available. I'm also a bit suspicious that the later reports on the site come from a man called Sam van Landingham, a creationist. I know this doesn't automatically discredit his views and I know he published a peer reviewed paper, but given the significance of this site to conspiracy theorists, it does seem a bit strange that both he and Steen McIntyre are hostile to evolution.

Hi Heather

I was just reading something you posted a while ago about the Hueyatlaco date controversy and I was wondering if you have been able to refute it since then. Of course I agree with you that we need to be careful about refuting it just because we don't like it.
