This is my first thread in this section, so apologies if this is not the right place
A Cretaceous/Tertiary Boundary Rock or the K-T Boundary Rock is the evidence that a large meteor killed hit the Earth 65 million years ago wiping out
the dinosaurs. For those unfamiliar with this, there are no dinosaur fossils above this line, and it is the ‘theory’ that dinosaurs were wiped
out in the cataclysm.
Scientists have been looking for the fingerprint of the impact for years, with a few being pinpointed and with best guess scenarios or being
I have no problem with the idea that a large meteorite hit Earth, it happens all the time (geologically speaking).
What I am confused about is the fact that if this meteor killed off the dinosaurs, then shouldn’t there be a large collection of dinosaur fossils in
The scenario is that there would be a large amount of ash and rock thrown into the atmosphere, a fire ball and shockwave spreading out at supersonic
speeds, virtual nuclear winter, little to no sunlight getting through.
Wouldn’t the ash and other eventually fall with the rain and basically ‘concrete’ the dino remains over?
The scientists still cant answer why the marine based reptiles died out, whilst other reptiles survived.
I summarise that something else killed off the dinosaurs and that this theory is just a convenient method to avoid answering annoying questions
without an answer.
if just one of you answers reptoids...
