Here's an interesting article about new evidence questioning whether the Chicxulub impact asteroid was the cause of the mass extinction 65 million years ago.  

The newest research, led by Gerta Keller of Princeton University in New Jersey, and Thierry Adatte of the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, uses evidence from Mexico to suggest that the Chicxulub impact predates the K-T boundary by as much as 300,000 years.

Asteroid may not have done Dino's in

There is a competing theory that massive volcanic eruptions at the Deccan Traps in India may have been the primary cause of the K-T extinction.  

Both events happened at roughly the same time.  But the question becomes which one was the primary cause of the extinction?

At any rate, this is another nice example of how the scientific method works.  New evidence and research can result in rethinking of old hypothesis/theories.  Either strengthening them, or proposing a new alternate hypothesis/theory.

No! I refuse to believe that! My parents told me that it was the asteroid, and i have a book that said it was the asteroid!

And i'll teach my children that it was the asteroid, and to hate those who think otherwise.

And nations will be divided upon this belief! And we'll go to war to defend the killing asteroid hypothesis!

And you'll be able to map which regions go with the asteroid and which ones go with the volcanoes!

Edit: It would be funny, if it wasn't sad.

Would we see a mammal by the water's edge "suddenly" start breathing underwater(w/camera effect of course)?

Yes Wisp, the old beliefs are hard to give up.  To your dying day you may never come to accept it.  But for new generations it will be no big problem.

Peace be with you my friend!

I am a creationist and I believe the dinosaurs went extict after the flood. You see, before the flood, the earth was sorounded by  water. This made the earth liek one huge Hyperberic chamber, enabling humans and animals to grow to huge sizes, and live to a very old age. Lets say there is a pre-flood chamelion. Reptiles never stop growing their whole lives. So there is this chamelion in this world that is basically a hyperbaric chamber. If this chamelion lived say 200 years, it would grow to be about the size of a car. Now wouldn't that look like some sort of triceratops? The "dinosaurs" went on the ark just like all the other animals.
During the flood, the water around the earth fell to the ground and created our oceans. When all the animals (and reptiles) came off the ark, the world was a dsifferent place. The oxygen levels where greatly declined. The reptiles lungs are small  and most of them died off. Today, reptiles and humans do not live as long, so they are not as big as they grew before the flood.

so there you have it.. thats my view on the extinction of the dinosaurs....

So, what's the geologic marker for the flood?


-------
Pogge:” This is the volume of a sphere with a 62 kilometer (about 39 miles) radius, which is considerably smaller than the 2,000 mile radius of the Earth.”
Wikipedia:” For Earth, the mean radius is 6,371.009 km(≈3,958.761 mi; ≈3,440.069 nmi).”
Wisp to Lester (on Pogge): Do you admit he was wrong about the basics?
Lester: No

First off, thank you a lot for stating your beliefs in advance. That's very nice.

I am a creationist and I believe the dinosaurs went extict after the flood.
What's your basis?

You see, before the flood, the earth was sorounded by  water.
What's your basis?

What held the water canopy in its place?

This made the earth liek one huge Hyperberic chamber, enabling humans and animals to grow to huge sizes, and live to a very old age.
What makes you believe that high pressure promotes gigantism and longevity?

Lets say there is a pre-flood chamelion. Reptiles never stop growing their whole lives.
That's interesting! I didn't know that... Will look it up.
So there is this chamelion in this world that is basically a hyperbaric chamber. If this chamelion lived say 200 years, it would grow to be about the size of a car. Now wouldn't that look like some sort of triceratops?
You're saying that if you put reptiles under high pressure... they... turn into dinosaurs?

That would be very easy to demonstrate, right?

Unless they whole The "dinosaurs" went on the ark just like all the other animals.
Didn't get that phrase.

During the flood, the water around the earth fell to the ground and created our oceans.
Where did the ocean creatures live before that?
When all the animals (and reptiles)
Reptiles are animals. All of them.

Wait, checking...
Yeah, all of them.

came off the ark, the world was a dsifferent place. The oxygen levels where greatly declined.
But higher levels of oxygen don't promote longevity either. More like the opposite.

Just like candles. They burn brighter, and last less.

The reptiles lungs are small  and most of them died off.
What's your basis? Why were they carried into the ark?
Today, reptiles and humans do not live as long, so they are not as big as they grew before the flood.
We were bigger? Only 4k years ago?

Going back in time you only see us getting shorter...

so there you have it.. thats my view on the extinction of the dinosaurs....
Which you won't back up with evidence, i presume...
