Hi Paula:
I'm sure there's someone else on the list with more knowledge
than myself about accepted ways of scholarship and investigation
by contemporary evolutionary biologists and paleontologists, but
- no - I don't think it would fit the bill. E.g. in contemporary
debates among scholars about "Ida" that's not the way in which
answers are being sought.
