Thanks Renfield! An update topic (see the list above for more), which saves me the effort of posting it, as I was going to do. :'D Thanks again!

I'll bet Dr. Walt Brown likes this news.

He has a unique explaination for frozen mammoths that could mesh with this find.

But wait! The extinction of the mammoths was due to greedy, evil pre-historic humans over-hunting them. Now this?

This article sucks! Inconsistencies, contradictions, and confusion abound.

The ONE thing I bring away from this article is that the scientific community should never ever EVER question their own dating methods.

One problem that jumped out at me was the ~35,000 year old tusks MAY have been peppered with fragments ~13,000 years ago. Not likely for the simple reason that once exposed to the air, tusks begin to deteriorate. So what would have HAD to happen is the ~20,000 year old tusks MUST have been exposed ~13,000 years ago, THEN resealed to preserve them for another ~13,000 years. Did I miss something?
