    Odd the headline photo is of a much larger, unrelated gecko find. They give a link to the anole picture. I suppose since it is vastly less interesting/detailed to look at than the gecko.

    RA, you're old. What were those lizards like back then?
    As defined by the Official Terrorism Training For Law Enforcement:
    What Is Domestic Terrorism?
    Extreme force and violence perpetrated by
    the people government of a country, within that country,
    for the purpose of coercing its government and population public
    into modifying its behavior"

    You are either with Our Constitution or you are with The Terrorists!

    Government...if it leans to the left it eventually means theft. - tlc

    Wall of text is unnecessary.

    Here they "date" the fossil based on where it was found, but elsewhere they date fossils based on when they think they existed. You know, when 3-year olds dig up 150+ million year old fossils barely below the surface.

    The rocks date the fossils which date the rocks which serve as index markers for carbon dating which is calibrated to date the rocks and fossils according to what evolutionary timelines suggest.

    Tectonic uplift and/or erosion. Once again you display a lack of any intelligence on the subject.

    But to be fair, you were goaded into this.

    This was a total letdown. It's less than 2 inches long--when I hear "23 million year old lizard discovered, frozen in time", I expected to see something the size of Cadillac. So much for the Jurassic Park jokes.

    Sometimes you just have to be tricksy...

    I wonder if they'll try to get some genetic material.
