Both the reading and the lecture discuss the possibility that bees existed 200 million years ago. The author indicates the bees did not exist and suggests three reasons. However, the professor contradicts them by offering three counterclaims accordingly.
To begin with, the reading suggests the actual bee fossils do not exist whereas the professor contends that this fact does not contradict with the possibility that bees existed 200 million years ago. To be more specific, back at the time, the trees that produced the liquid preserving fossils were rare, so this could be the reason why we don't find preserved bee fossil. That is, the first reason is not convincing.
In the second place, the passage brings up the point that the absent of flower proves that the bees did not exist back then. However, the scholar strongly disagrees with the argument by mentioning that bees could feed on non-flowering plants instead. It is true that bees and flowers evolved in a closed relationship, but bees may exist before flowering plant appeared and adapted flowering plant later.
Last but not least, the speaker opposes the third reason by providing evidence. While the author contends that the structure lacks some details so it was not made by bees, the speaker mentions that the substance found in the structure has been proven containing same water-proofing chemical used by modern bees. Hence, the structure was made by bees. In other words, the third statement is not plausible.
