Consider: the fact that preserved eggs and nests exist at all could argue against global crustal disruptions within the Quaternary. On the other hand, the sedimentary sites where they are preserved could themselves, indirectly, argue for such global cataclysms.

Consider: the locations where dinosaur eggs/nests have been found in large numbers would have, in the past, been closer to rather than farther from what was then the equator. So, which equator locations, and how different from the current equator, do these finds imply.

This assumes that they have not been transported, in sedimentary layers, great distances from their original locations, riding on great forces. On the other hand, what if they were?

Again, underlying all, are the established assumptions about how far back in time dinosaurs can have existed.

Each yellow dot represents multiple egg and/or nest finds in each area indicated, sometimes as many as a dozen finds for each.

Worldwide dinosaur egg/nest finds

Are some of these sites possibly pockets of very late survivors of earlier mass extinctions? If so, could that point to climatic conditions implying different locations of the Equator.

If not, has the evidence layer possibly been carried from somewhere else?
