Actually, we've got big problems here; none of our hypotheses are falsifiable --- I have to have an unbroken global record of species appearances and extinctions to demonstrate that N.'s assertion that the current extinction rate is high enough to count as an "event" is false, and N. has to have an unbroken record to demonstrate that my assertion that appearance and extinction rates are of the order of 103 is false.

Stalemate.
