Comment: Hypothesis Not Theory (Score 0, Troll) 184

There is nothing really backing this one up. The Permian extinction could have just as easily been a glaciation on Gondwana. My personal vote would be that the Permian and Ordovician extinctions were the result of some earth-based forcing of the environment. But most importantly, this new information is just a hypothesis, nothing more. Lets not try to give it more weight than it deserves.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.

Working...
