More About Dinosaur Extinction

February 12 is Question Evolution Day!

In the previous post, I mentioned that there are many theories about the extinction of the dinosaurs. The reason for this is that scientists find different theories (dino)sorely lacking. Some of them are so ridiculous, they are probably put forth as jokes. Part of the problem is that these scientists are operating from an evolutionary worldview. Perhaps they should be acting like scientists and examining the evidence without their presuppositional blinders?

Like their secular counterparts, creationists posit their models as well. The flood model seems to answer quite a few questions without playing fast and loose with the facts.
Dinosaur extinction is still a major enigma of earth history. In this review article, extinctions in the geological record will be briefly mentioned. Many of the imaginative theories for the extinction of the dinosaurs will also be presented. Within the uniformitarian paradigm, the meteorite impact theory, once considered ‘outrageous’, now is the dominant theory. However, the volcanic theory is still believed by a majority of palaeontologists. Both theories have their strengths and weaknesses. The unscientific behaviour of those involved in the meteorite paradigm change will be briefly explored. Evidence that the dinosaurs died in a cataclysm of global proportions will be presented, such as the huge water-laid dinosaur graveyards found over the earth. Occasional monospecific bone-beds and the rarity of fossils of very young dinosaurs suggest a catastrophic death and burial. The billions of dinosaur tracks recently discovered provide testimony to unusual, stressful conditions. Nests, eggs, and babies are a challenge to a Flood model, but there are enough unknowns associated with the data that solid conclusions are difficult to draw. The part that impacts and volcanism play in a Flood paradigm will be briefly discussed. The question of whether the K/T boundary and the extinction of the dinosaurs should be considered a synchronous event within the Flood will be considered.
