This was generally accepted, then some doubts/different opinions..
Now it's back more solid than ever on the old C-T boundary

Scientists Discover New Evidence of the Asteroid That Killed Off the Dinosaurs


Drilling into the seafloor off Mexico, scientists have extracted a unique geologic record of the single worst day in the history of life on Earth, when a city-sized asteroid smashed into the planet 65 million years ago, wiping out the dinosaurs and three-quarters of all other life.

Their analysis of these new rock samples from the Chicxulub crater, made public Monday, reveals a parfait of debris deposited in layers almost minute-by-minute at the heart of the impact during the first day of a global catastrophe. It records traces of the explosive melting, massive earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides and wildfires as the immense asteroid blasted a hole 100 miles wide and 12 miles deep, the scientists said.

The sediments also offer chemical evidence that the cataclysm blew hundreds of billions of tons of sulfur from pulverized ocean rock into the atmosphere, triggering a global winter in which temperatures world-wide dropped by as much as 30 degrees Fahrenheit for decades, the scientists said.

People should always invest in learning more about outer space and improving our capabilities there. Not doing so is a gamble, and the house always wins.

It's a concidence, I watch a program on this subject yesterday that is very interesting and proves that it is indeed the asteoid who killed 75% of living beings 66 million years ago and we can see the difference of the rocks, the granites in the 300 cores

Did they get a better size of it? I see no news reports in Breaking News or Current Events. The size of the asteroid is estimated to be 11 to 81 kilometres (6.8 to 50.3 miles) in width.

No doubt Chicxulub asteroid hit the Earth, but it's just a theory that dinosaurs became extinct from it. Prof. Walter Alvarez formed his thesis because it coincided with the K-Pg boundary. Whether it actually did is still being disputed as there isn't a smoking gun -- 11. Conclusions – Based on 30 Years of Research | Gerta Keller, Professor of Geosciences. Of course, the actual research gets buried for some odd reason while Alvarez' hypothesis gets major reporting.

It seems that you have exposed another vast conspiracy perpetrated by those "evilutionist" atheist scientists. Those diabolical evilutionists have even submitted their findings to the peer-reviewed journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

You should rally your Christian ministries to issue a fatwa.

I know something about this as Alvarez is a professor from my alma mater. We know that he wasn't right because the supervolcano or volcano scientists immediately challenged him. It was discovered that Chicxulub was too early and way before the K-Pg boundary. Can you answer what the size of the asteroid was or is it too much for you to find out about something you profess to back, but don't know anything about? In that case, then why don't you shut up and wait until we get more info?

When you claim that "we know he wasn't right..." who is the "we" that know this?

Could the "we" be the "we" at creation.com"

That's completely false.

Is this your shtick? You try to derail threads by saying false, stupid shit, then everyone has to sift through the steaming pile of shit you just pinched off in the middle of the thread?

Cool, dude.

This is typical of your biased view. When I studied evolution and the "so-called" extinction of the dinosaurs, there were two opposing views. The geologists were saying supervolacanoes while the astronomers claimed asteroid. The astronomers must be the same people claiming an asteroid will cause the end of the world, but Chicxulub showed this was not the case. You to buy a better telescope, dude.

The Indian volcano happened less than 6,000 years ago?

Time to buy some new gawds, dude.

Fort Fun Indiana doesn't answer my questions so I know he doesn't know that the asteroid was too early. He can't figure out who is right between two opposition camps of secular or atheist scientists. What an idiot!

Hollie is an idiot, too, because not only can she not answer my questions, she can't read. What an idiot!
