    Are you serious? You had someone who has kept records for 11 millions years but don’t know anything about a lizard? Why don’t you resurrect Darwin (whom we all know took his place as the creator of Heaven & the earth) & ask him about the Pinocchio Lizard! You scientists are so smart, you’re stupid!!!

    If coelacanth, and other species of bugs and lizards have survived extinction,why not Dinosaurs and mammoths and giant humans?

    So, what does this do to the fossil record?
    If they are dating the rock layers by the fossils they find in them, but...... these animals are still around.... so......

    How do we know that the stick insect found on Ball's Pyramid is indeed the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect? Given the potential for rapid microevolution of island animals, if say we travelled back in time and brought a LHISI from Lord Howe Island, would this insect be able to produce fertile young if it mated with the stick insects on Ball's Pyramid?
