Why was Palaeocritti Site Important to the Creationist Cause?

First off, it is down.

"Notice: This domain name expired on 07/13/16 and is pending renewal or deletion"

Second, I had agreed with Nobu Tamura, one project leader for it, to save as much as possible before it went down:

I Hope This Blog will Get More Writers - it is a Salvage Blog

Approved by Nobu Tamura!

Defining terms:

What is a salvage blog?

Third, I found no other writers, but did some job anyway.

Palaeocritti Blog

Fourth, when I saw the original site was down, I knew I had failed:

Mission failed

Now, you may wonder why the original site, and by extension my back-up blog or salvage blog was so important to a Creationist?

It was managed by Evolutionists ... yes. But Evolutionists who were being unusually candid about what kind of material we have for each species or genus, how many fossils, how well preserved, where the type fossil - called holotype - was found, how many countries around the world it is found in (Pterodactylish things are found in UK, Austria and Brazil, for one ... not always same species).

My dream would have been to prove that no where in the world do vertebrate fossils overlap, except perhaps in NW Mexico shrimps and prawns from "Palaeocene" being situated above Ceratopsians from "late Cretaceous". And shrimps and prawns aren't vertebrates anyway.

My other dream would have been to use the fossil map to make a map over the pre-Flood world. One part of Austria you have a Pterodactylish thing, as said, so it was presumably land. Near Vienna you have a very old seal, probably coast. Elsewhere - in Salzburg I think - you have a whale, so it was probably sea. West Morocco has trilobites, probably sea, perhaps shallow seas or lakes. In Karoo you consistently find land animals, so Karoo area was land. Jonkeria, Moschops, the skeleton which looks like an otter or teckel (dachshund), except its legs are reptilian (could some geneticist have been doing an evil experiment on real mammals?)

But in order to fulfil it, I would have needed either a prolongation on the part of the palaeocritti site, or fellow writers for the salvage blog, so it could have been completed quicker.

Site is down, though not yet deleted. I went through very few countries. Algeria was a short one. So was Antarctica. Austria - the whale not from Vienna/Nussdorf (there was one there, next to the seal) was from Linz, not Salzburg - Belgium, Brazil. United Kingdom only got started. For US, I only did Arizona. Linking to complementary articles on the web. In Africa, I started with South Africa and got started on a few more, see the page Locations. Where I also tried to make a new list about how well preserved they were ...

I hope someone donates - or that they charitably try to supplement at least the world map part, according to fossils - which I could never make. If they, being scientists and evolutionists, are interested in doing such a service for a creationist who is in letters rather than science.

Meanwhile, Creationists who unlike me and like the team behind palaeocritti are scientists, are missing this opportunity:

CMI : Fossil snakes and the Flood boundary in North America
by Chad Arment

The placement of the geological boundary between Flood deposits and post-Flood deposits is a point of debate within creation science. One method for estimating the placement of this boundary utilizes biostratigraphy. [footnote] Ross, M.R., Evaluating potential post-Flood boundaries with biostratigraphy—the Pliocene/Pleistocene boundary, J. Creation 26(2):82–87, 2012.

Well, the thing is ANY such kind of layer could be pre-Flood. Perhaps not the one with two snakes of same kind (unless Noah's pair was one of each species, so they could diversify back into the two after Food), but in my experience from the site which is now down, there is no such thing in vertebrate palaeontology as biostratigraphic layers above each other.
