So, just to take these two examples, both the coral and the howea would have had to have developed from scratch during the last 10,000 years. A claim that nobody would dare to make.
But nobody would dare to make the claim that either coral or palms developed "from scratch" on this island, ever. Coral and palms came to this island from elsewhere, at some point in time. Why not in the last 10,000 years?

Oh sure. What did they do, just float over on an ocean?;^)
Ok, so where did that giant, flattened cottonball in the picture come from?

(Never retreat. Never explain. Get it done and let them howl.)
So are you saying that the unmistakable palms of Lord Howe could have developed during the last 10,000 years from other palms ?
