Update: Comments and responses

There have been a couple of responses to this article. A fundamentalist Christian with a 'young-earth' perspective, wrote a short rebuttal. I would have responded but I have already addressed all of his points. Simply put, his views are based an faith and form a nice case study for the third agenda for believing in living plesiosaurs, as outlined in the 'epilogue' section above. I will, however, comment on one of the figures and the caption, because I thought it was funny and demonstrates for lack of critical thinking employed in this case:

The modified photo and part of the caption from the rebuttal

"...It has features similiar to the Mosasaur."

The source image:

Of course, there is a very obvious continuation of the spine past the 'mouth'. I have kindly indicated this feature with a similarly subtle arrow. (Please let nobody insult their own intelligence by suggesting that this may be the spine of an animal that the 'mosasaur' has consumed and is vomiting up).
