They won't find the fossils of land animals that much.

As I posted previously, 95% of all fossils found are those of marine animals. Thats because, since apparently many haven't seen wild kingdom, animals eat one another.

The few fossils we have found of, lets say dinosaurs, are usually because they fell into a swamp, or were buried quickly by some means (mudslide).

That's what I've been thinkin. Especially when it comes to "evolutionary biology" or "evolutionary psychology", there isn't anything particularly "enlightening" or "progressive" about the theories AT ALL....

Unless people believe that evolution stops at the neck LoL...

It was satire designed to illustrate that lack of data doesn't undermine any hypothesis.

Ouch. You don't pull your punches, do you.
