Dinosaur Extinction and Chicxulub Revisited

A common dogma perpetrated by the owlhoots at the Darwin Ranch is that a rock fell from space, smashed into the earth, and killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. School children learn to repeat this as a mantra, but consensus, popular opinion, repetition, and those kinds of things do not make for science. Also, even though the asteroid impact thing is told as if all scientists are in agreement on this. That'll be the day!

Creationist scientists reject the asteroid impact extinction concept for a number of reasons, especially because basic science and logic do not support it. This alleged impact at Chicxulub has a prairie schooner-full of problems, and further research shows that the whole thing smacks (heh!) of bad science.



The truth is that everything was created recently, and dinosaur extinction is a result of the Genesis Flood, a concept that secularists reject because it doesn't fit their deep time uniformitarian assumptions. Papa Darwin needs long ages, and his accomplices are willing to give it to him. It took creation science people to get past the narrative and commence to doing serious reasoning.
Did an asteroid hit in the Yucatan explain the demise of the dinosaurs? New drilling in the crater has brought some surprises.

The Alvarez theory of an asteroid impact causing the extinction of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago, embraced reluctantly at first, has taken on the feel of accepted truth, especially after a “smoking gun” crater was found. Chicxulub in the Yucatan is assumed to be ground zero where a San-Francisco-sized object at the right time, leaving a quasi-circular scar part onshore and part offshore. It would have raised tsunamis far and wide, and lofted smoke into the atmosphere, cooling temperatures for decades. Some 76% of organisms are said to have perished immediately after that unlucky day for planet earth. Or so, that’s the typical story.

Now, published results from new drill cores recovered offshore from part of the crater’s peak ring have scientists wrinkling their brows. Some things are not what they expected.
