history or natural ?

It seems that the key history is disputed. It's coming late now during the vote (or approval) and it's the fault to all of us who did not participate in the first call on the ML about this proposal.

The reason I think we shouldn't use historic is because paleontology has nothing to do with human history but something about earth history (or environmental history) in which case we could also say that crude oil is historic.

Wikipedia says : Paleontology (British: palaeontology)is the study of prehistoric life. -- Pieren 18:23, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
