Fascinating article, Myst. Thank you for posting it!

I agree - bury the child again. Artifacts belong in museums. People don't.

ya know, the entire theory of plate tectonics was not even proposed until the 1970s.  Up to that point there was little agreement or understanding about how land bridges could exist and then disappear as the continents drifted apart.  Fascinating stuff......

I believe the Bering Land Bridge existed due to low sea levels during a glaciation period, and disappeared under the waves as the ice melted and sea levels increased.

Pretty much the same as the Dover Straits bridge.

Incontrovertible?  They must have a consensus.
