Part of your argument against is a perfect argument for,
the fact that camels and elephants went extinct in NA while they didnt in SA or africa and asia.

The immediate effect of the series of wildfires started by the event killed off the NA animals by denying them food.
The populations were so severely depleted by the event that they couldnt sustain themselves and they died out over a relative short period of time.

And if makind killed off all off the large animals in NA the why didnt he is SA asia and africa.

Imagine what would have happend if the tunguska event had happend over a dryer environment and not the extremely wet siberian forest.
It would have set a huge fire ablaze and in an environment as dry as NA was at the time in question the fires would have raged unabbatted.

I was unaware that chumash is one of the oldest languages, thats very interesting, especialy in light of the fact that one of the oldest inhabited sites in NA is on the seaward side of the channel islands.

What this study is saying is that there were no such large fires.

Twisi, the issue is not whether your old thread is valid, or if its wrong. It isn't about your ego is it?

One aspect of Firestone theory has been shown not to be supported. No continent wide fire storm ignited by a cometary explosion or impact.

Remember the earlier theory Firestone had I believe was that the effect was from a super nova, but later studies cast doubt on that.

The diamond aspect of it wasn't looked at but IF there was no fire storm then the effect was much less than earlier believed. I believe we'll find that as this is investigated that the various events occurred at different times and are a mix of effects, not just one large event.

If you are deeply concerned about this just contact one of the team members and ask them what they think the effect of this study is on Firestones original theory. Note too I don't think anyone has accessed the original report. We are working off a journalists take. Always a frightening thing to do.

Let us know what the team members say - either that or find a forum where the member have access to that report and see what they are saying.
