` Caveat Lector. I have not found the retraction you refer to but a
` re-evaluation of the dating only because of the C-14 controversy. I dont
` see this as settled science at all, and you will find a *Natl Geo*
` website still posting on the Great Black Sea flood. which they would not
` do were your characterization correct. A link which I have posted on
` usenet in a reponse to you on this issue before.
It's in their archive, and dated 1999. People are not in the habit of
deleting articles just because new evidence appears. The presence of
old articles on the net is not a demonstration of their current
validity by any stretch of the imagination.
