Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, ‘We see.’ Therefore your sin remains.(John 9:41) NKJV
“Heavy rainfall and aridity?” An ecosystem had 40 days and nights of rain, was buried in sediment, and what was left afterwards dried out. The Devonian is one of the biggest jokes in human history.
Paleobotany and the evolution of plants
We’re studying the periods of geological history as described by Wilson N. Stewart.
This was the text book we used in grad school when we studied for a masters of science in Biology.
DEVONIAN– Wilson N. Stewart, Paleobotany and the evolution of plants.
Heavy rainfall and aridity. Extensive inundation of continents to form seas in areas of major synclines. Diversification of vascular plants: all major groups except flowering plants present by end of Devonian. Heterospory and the seed habit in early seed ferns. Liverworts, fungi. Diversification of fishes.
By a totally staggering coincidence, the Devonian period was our area of focus when we were in grad school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, studying for a masters degree in Paleobotany. Not that this means that we are an expert by any means, but we do have personal experience handling the evidence of the fossil record in general and the Devonian in particular.
