Bob,

Do you know the difference between real, meaningful theory
construction and wild-ass speculation? Apparently not, because
you introduce the notion of what we don't know about the
planet's history, and then maybe anything is possible. Theories
(if they are to be meaningful) have to be based on data,
established facts. Not on wild imagination.

The 'anything is possible' school of thought states only an
obvious generalization; it does not addrees or explain in any
way the data. What it omits is that some things are a hell of a
lot more likely than others, and in any event that reasoning
(deduction) from high-sounding generalizations has no
established connection with reality.
