Evidence has been produced, evidence has been ignored. How did the tusk get shoved in the ground. Trampling mammoths, stream interaction mean nothing. I want solid experimental evidence per the article above, by the anti-cerutti gang proving their point.

Okay let's see how they would move the goalposts: Let's assume that they conclusively find proteins on the stone, how would the ant-Cerutti gang respond? Simple, they would instantly say did they rule out geological processes that could have transported the proteins there? No? Did they rule out capillary diffusion of dissolved proteins from the rotting mammoth to the rocks? No? Too bad. Did they rule out possible scavenger contamination? i.e. a bird could have landed on the mammoth plucked out some goodies, and then moved to a rock cross contaminating the site? Why not? That's done in introduction to forensics.

Now here's why it would probably be pointless anyhow. Why? go here; [www.academia.edu] Scroll down to the various rocks that were there. See all of that white encrustation on the rock? Right probably Calcium carbonate deposits. Where did the Calcium carbonate come from? Here's a hint; the mastodon. So where does that leave us, assume they found bone on the hammerstone how do you know it wasn't dissolved from the mastodon?

I like to think Team Cerutti woke up. What's the point of playing a game (and wasting time energy and money while you're at it) with somebody who keeps changing the rules every time they start to lose?
