More questions about today’s alien fossil story

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

The questions this article raises jive well with my own doubts. However I find the level of hatred expressed in the comments to be quite disgusting and vile.

    Either this paper will hold up against scientific criticism or it won’t. Where it is published is only relevant in the sense that it tells us how much real confidence Hoover might have in his thesis. It doesn’t really tell us much about the validity of the thesis to begin with. In any case, while it would be great for Hoover to be right, we have to go where the evidence takes us.
