Memphis demands a recount too.

I thought Dresden got that record in 1945.

I think everyone knows that dinosaurs never existed. All of the fossils were planted by aliens.

"Everyone knows that the asteroid here killed the dinosaurs. They teach it in the schools," said Isabel Lopez, a shop owner in the village of Yaxcopoil.

"It's a shame what happened," said schoolboy Daniel Tzeu, 11, lamenting the dinosaurs' end. He was standing near a bore hole in the village dug by University of Arizona scientists probing for rock samples in a crater caused by the asteroid.


now that, folks, is quality journalism.

Texas BBQ: beef jerky covered in Kraft BBQ sauce.

Put this on some corn-fed Omaha beef and call it a day:

No, you're wrong. Everyone knows the dinosaurs were killed and fossilized during Noah's Flood.

Hmmmm.

Isn't it unlikely the entire earth was affected by this event. At most, I can see a world wide up-swing of perhaps a few degrees, but I'm supposed to believe it rose to above 450F...Worldwide, yet the air wasn't hot enough to suffocate animals living underground?
Sorry, don't believe it. Earths just too damn big guy, and your evidence has been dead for 65 million years. I'd rather believe they died off from the cold than heat. They were cold blooded after all and couldn't regulate their body temperatures rapidly enough if the earth was plunged into a extended cooling period.

If you think about it, it's pretty effing remarkable. I mean, what if the asteriod had not hit the Earff? How far would dinosaurs evolved? Would they still rule the planet?


either way, i'm sure that Starbucks would still rule the planet.
 
2004-10-27 07:40:32 PM
One Bullet Barney, you're wrong! Dinosaur bones were planted here by Satan so he could fool us into believing in them and thus, in evolution!

Oh come on... The Bible clearly states that the Earth is no more than 11,000 years old. This is all a liberal conspiracy timed to disrupt our President's reelection as forseen by God.

Scientists have officially become annoying.

Dinosaurs died when an asteroid caused a "nuclear winter".

Dinosaurs died in blazing inferno caused by asteroid.

Dinosaurs died from global warming from volcanos and SUV's, and then another asteroid, not the one the other guys are talking about, finished them off.

AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

They're like bickering children. Whatever happening to slowly forming a hypothesis based on a preliminary observation, then finding data to prove the hypothesis. When did get to the declare you are right and everyone else is "teh ghey" stage of science?

settle down BeowulfSmith.
don't you know that what killed off the dinosaurs will lead us directly to a cure for cancer?

BeowulfSmith, I agree, the Discovery Channel can be frustrating at times.

Brian Toon has been peddling this crap for years. consider this statement:

"The entire sky would be radiating at you. It would be like standing next to a giant fire; you'd be burned very severely,"

Now, consider the fact that every organism alive on Earth today had a Cretaceous ancestor. And no, they didn't all radiate back up from bacteria in 65 million years. Hmm... frogs, salamanders, lizards, snakes, birds... oh yeah, all animals that do very well in firestorms!

"The entire sky would be radiating at you. It would be like standing next to a giant fire; you'd be burned very severely," Toon said, whose research is based on mathematical and computer models.

Except you probably weren't born yet.

This guy gets grants by being mighty dramatic in his presentation of "science". I don't like him, his theory, or his fruity name.

George Bush tolt me there were never any dinosuars. That's a falsehood spread by commies, ragheads, queers, lesbos and brown people. Every right thinking christian soldier knows the world is 6000 years old. Evildooooers will be sent to re education camps.

A dinosaur heart was discovered (they had to do a CT scan as it would be impossible to study it physically without destroying it), and it was four chambered, stronly suggesting that dinosaurs were warm blooded, like today's birds.

clicky

I'm not saying cold couldn't kill them, but the evidence suggests that at least some dinosaurs were warm blooded.

BeowulfSmith: They're like bickering children. Whatever happening to slowly forming a hypothesis based on a preliminary observation, then finding data to prove the hypothesis. When did get to the declare you are right and everyone else is "teh ghey" stage of science?

You're forgetting an important step in the process. Where do you get your hypothesis to test? You hypothesize based on a theory. A theory is an explanation that incorporates all available data. Once you have a theory, you can develop testable hypotheses which may disprove your theory. For example:

1. Theory: dinosaurs died in a flamey, BBQ death.
2. Hypothesis: dinosaur fossils should therefore taste like Corky's Dry Rub.
3. Test: Have grad students lick N fossils and rate them on spiciness.
4. If your test fails, then you would invalidate your hypothesis and your theory.

BTW theories can never be proven conclusively, only disproven. They are disproven when data which is inconsistent with the theory is discovered. In that case, you develop a better theory which explains all previous data and the new data. That is then the prevailing theory until it is disproven or another (better) theory comes along.

Science lesson ended.

There were some formidable marine dinosaurs and since the oceans don't change as drastically as the land does, I always wondered why they all died out. Like the Ichthyosaurs, which if the current understanding is correct, should have survived.
 
2004-10-27 09:57:40 PM
The dinosaurs didn't have these guys.

 
2004-10-27 10:07:03 PM
What I wants to know is this, how in the heck did the dinosaurs get buried under 6000 feet of rock in the Gulf of Mexico. You mean to tell me all this water we have in the oceans right now didn't exist then?
