Point #3 = “if we calculate Baikal's depth from their top, it will be equal to 12,000 meters (about 39,370 feet)!” This doesn’t make sense. If the lake was at sea level and its depth was 5000 feet below sea level, then the surrounding mountains would have to be about 34,000 feet high and not even Mt. Everest is that high.

Ver impressive- what is its source ? Deep springs? I am sure I read a year or so ago that it was drying up due to water being drained for human uses/agriculture??

Where and from what did the seals evolve from that far from any other populations ? Any DNA similarities to Artic seals ? Was there a connection eons ago ?
