I don't understand your statements Grog . You say I am making an assumption that these livers can't hold stones. I never said anything like that. I did say that I cannot see where the large number and size of stones reported could possibly fit in the liver based on my personal observations. You then go on to say:
"To think you can analyze these livers and their capabilties just by looking at them is not a very scientific process and really doesn't prove or disprove anything"
Now I would think that looking at them and carefully dissecting the structures to see how the connecting ducts and all the other plumbing is connected would be a very good method of estimating the capability of the liver/gall bladder/ connecting ducts to hold stones and also gives a pretty good indication of how things work. I mean if you see pipes connected together and running to some palce you wouldn't find it hard to make a guess on how the system might work...kinda like looking at a plumbing tree in a house. I think if you can hold in your hands the connecting and common bile ducts in your very own hands I think you can make a fair assessment of what can or can not fit into it. How would you suggest a person should learn about liver structure and architecture? How do you think liver (opr any organ) structure and function was first determined?
