A team of scientists from Purdue and Stanford universities has found that the decay of radioactive isotopes fluctuates in synch with the rotation of the sun's core. The fluctuations appear to be very small but could lead to predictive tools for solar flares and may have an impact on medical radiation treatments. This adds to evidence of swings in decay rates in response to solar activity and the distance between the Earth and the sun that Purdue researchers Ephraim Fischbach, a professor of physics, and Jere Jenkins, a nuclear engineer, have been gathering for the last four years. The Purdue team previously reported observing a drop in the rate of decay that began a day and half before and peaked during the December 2006 solar flare and an annual fluctuation that appeared to be based on the Earth's orbit of, and changing distance from, the sun, Jenkins

Maybe not as many dinosaurs died in the meteor impact/flood as we thought, I know alligators and crocs are pretty much dinosaurs and I think some other animals like turtles basically survived past the event, so maybe others did too?
Knowing how humans work id say any that were left got killed and eaten, and maybe climate/environment changes took care of the rest

Then, why aren't t rex and bronto parts found throughout civilization?

Let's talk about how my points and evidence have been "100% wrong" based on those facts and evidence shall we? It seems like a better idea than telling me I'm wrong because you don't agree with religion.
And why does everything textbooks have told us have to be correct beyond questioning? At some point in time all great minds and thinkers were considered quacks and lunatics. I'm sure there were people telling Galileo and Einstein and others the same things you are telling me now. (Not that I consider myself a great mind or thinker by any means)edit on 17-8-2011 by nyk537 because: (no reason given)

He never mentions religious faith. He just presented some evidence, that's all.
And aren't you a 'member' of ATS? Yet you blindly believe everything the 'mainstream' scientific community presents as 'fact'?
Mmmmm? Deny ignorance: That mean anything to you?
