Man dinosaurs are so cool. I hope we can recreate some in our lifetime, and then see them in some sort of zoo or park. I don't like to do most things other people find fun. I dont care about sports, I dont like bars or clubs, I dont even care about nature that much, but if someone sold tickets to a T-rex or Raptors hunting an elephant or hippo.... I would pay big money to see that IRL. Holy crap can you imagine some 50ton dinosaur getting ripped to shreds by another 50ton dinosaur, that would be so awesome.........

So their "confirmation" is really just "we *think* this is what happened, and we have no direct evidence, but we have really good circumstantial evidence, but trust us anyway." rolleyes.gif

Not that I doubt this is what happened, but it is hardly "Confirmation", and in reality, what difference does it make WHAT wiped them out, it's just good enough that they were wiped out, otherwise we would have never come to be.

I think it's pretty important to understand what wiped out a majority of life on the planet at the time...

There's no way to prove something that far in the past 100% conclusively, but if the dating on the crater or whatever matches I would say that's the smoking gun we would need to stop looking for something else.

Not to be flip or anything, but why?

It's not like we could stop a meteor from wiping us out if we discovered one today anyway. It wouldn't change a thing, we'd all be dead ... despite what Hollywood would say otherwise ... that is even if we knew about it with more than a couple months notice or maybe a year anyway ... which sadly, we often don't get because we can't even see all the "local" stuff with 100% accuracy.

We have A LOT more pressing issue to deal with as a species than worrying what wiped out lizards 65 million years ago, and we don't even bother with dealing with them.

Too bad the asteroid didn't kill off the cockroaches. Those things never die. They probably hid in a crack and made 19 billion babies.

These scientists aren't in the field of dealing with those other issues. They are doing what they want to with their lives, which leads them to this sort of thing. I make pneumatic connectors for a living, that doesn't really solve the worlds problems either.
