Antarctic mosasaurs (NZ Herald 9 July 1999) "A geological expedition in Antarctica has unearthed huge deposits of dinosaur age bones in a surprise find that has excited scientists around the world. The fossilised bones were found in the remote Vega in Seymour Islands and Antarctic areas and give powerful support to the theory of Continental Drift."

Editorial Comment: Mosasaurs are named after the River Meuse where the first skeleton was found in Europe. To find northern hemisphere mosasaurs in Antarctica, whilst touted as providing evidence for continental drift, is better evidence for uniform conditions in an original ocean, which would have been much smaller and without Arctic conditions. It is consistent with the one universal ocean, as espoused in the book of Genesis 19-11 where "God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth and it was so."
