gotta wield the fact bat again.
so your "bad astronomy" debunking argument says "In fact, the temperatures measured are consistent with them being balls of frozen gases"
so a lil poking at the NASA deep impact mission results and we find a lot of non data, but i'll see if we can squeeze some inferences.
first a look at the comet via NASA
so that's it, right? calm lump of dark, very not gassy and very not icey.
so we go looking for actual numbers. From same article "The ice, however, covers roughly 300,000 square feet. And only 6 percent of that area
consists of pure water ice. The rest is dust."
huh. 6%... and thats an inferred number based on a tiny sampling, with the idea that there MUST be water there, right?
how about temp? couldn't find any actual numbers, but i did find this
in it i find : "A thermal map indicates a surface in equilibrium with sunlight". Which is vague talk for "It was really warm"
come at me, bro
