Oregon stone tools enliven 'earliest Americans' debate.

Looks as if evidence is building that the coming of the Paleoindians was a messier and more drawn-out process than previously beleived. What's interesting about this from a paleontological perspective is that the earlier colonists seem not to have triggered any mass extinction. Maybe the Folsom culture, with a more land-based technology including a superior hunting toolkit, could regularly take larger animals than could their more-maritime predecessors?

Modern Amerindian tribal organizations, of course, are too busy being Creationist (yep, just a different Creation story) and obstructionist toward science to join in this debate. Too bad.
