Correction fator for genetic change

Note that this team sets the "original" bird at 50 million years ago - it was more likely 65.5 or so.
Thus the correction is most likely a factor of 65.5/50.

They estimate genetic mutation based on radiation flow, so this correction may be applicable to hominid evolution estimates.

I picture "the" bird survival as having been in a north facing rock cleft rookery on a cliff wall in some far northern area.
Usually people believe what they want to believe until reality intrudes.

Thanks, E.P.

Quite interesting.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
