first let me say sorry for the lack of posting knowledge. ( from under a rock i came )

this first image is of the gulf taken from google earth.

This next image is what i think happend. the impact came in from the direction of the black arrow ( forgive my paint skills ) the red arrows show the direction of the out ward blast. the yellow arrow is the resulting inward water flow.

This last pic shows how the earth and water flowed back in. The earth is in red showing the flow back in from the mexico side, and the abrupt sea shelf where the blast went up ward. the black shows where the water flow back in to the crater thus not resulting in the same out ward blast pattern shown in red. so what you see is two lips almost opposite of each other right at the mouth. this happens when rushing water has a back flow at a choke point. so it just a flat debris field.

well thats just something that ran through my mind and i wanted to see what every one thought. since im broke and i just cant report back the field studies on my own : )

thanks for your time.

Isn't that the asteroid hit location that killed off the dinosaurs?

Why revised?

The pic shows good detail.

You could be right. They say the asteroid was 6 miles across, but that seems too small when you look at the gulf.

The pictures you posted certainly do not look like an impact crater as we have come to know them. I am not sure what to think. Think maybe we need geologist to come by, someone might, often they are lurking.

Did want to say, not to worry about not being a pro poster. Everyone has to start somewhere, you did fine

but alas ear wax.....

it might also explain how the odd ocean current got started. the new madrid fault line might be the after math of it as well.

thats why i need you guys

Interesting theory. I used to think about the same thing, and was terriby disappointed at the "official" explanation in my school books. I never looked into it as deep as this, though. When I first looked at the pic you posted, I thought the meteor would have come in from the north east, leaving a long ditch shaped appearance as it dug into the earth. But yours could make sense too, if it came in at a steeper angle, causing it to come to a short halt, rather than dragging a distance and creating the ditch like appearance. Thanks again for sharing. I can't wait to see what else comes out of that brain of yours
seriously. Let us know if you ever get your daughter to be interested in this kind of stuff xD I bet that will be a great day for you when she grows bored with the beib! XD

thanks for the input. yeah that will be a good day, but the odds are in favor of 2012 happening first.
