Numerous causes for dinosaur extinction have been proposed. Some have suggested gradual extinction. Others argue for a catastrophic cause. How do creation scientists explain the disappearance of dinosaurs from the fossil record above the Cretaceous layer?
The idea has been ingrained in our consciousness tha dinosaurs died out because a large asteroid or comet hit the earth some 65 million years ago. But the theory has some problems.
Those who suggest the Mexican meteorite triggered events resulting in mass extinctions presume the meteorite caused catastrophes such as sun-blocking seismic fallout and unprecedented volcanic activity. The models supporting this scenario, however, were not based on a realistic model of the earth.
The news has been buzzing recently with headlines such as this one from New Scientist, “Incredible fossil find may be first victims of dino-killer asteroid.”
Secular geologists attribute cluster of dinosaur tracks to a “dinosaur disco” and that sauropods spent time in the water. But what does the evidence say?
The observational evidence of this Alaskan dinosaur graveyard fits much better with the Biblical account of the Global Flood.
Paleontologists have long wondered why dinosaurs are sparse in the Late Triassic rock layers of the presumed tropics of that supposed time.
Massive volcanism correlated with the onset of the end-Triassic mass extinction, evolutionary geochronologists find.
Dinosaur demise now confidently blamed on Chicxulub asteroid, study claims.
New evidence suggests a mass extinction that was produced by a drastic change in ocean conditions.
Rodent-like mammals with bumpy back teeth beat out dino competitors by munching on flowers.
Move over, mass extinction meteorite, says new model.
Closing in on the K-T boundary.
A 41-member science panel has arrived at a verdict: an asteroid impact killed off the dinosaurs about 65 million years ago.
Did the catastrophic impact of a large comet or asteroid caused the extinction of dinosaurs?
While the well-known tale is that one kind of catastrophe drove the dinosaurs extinct, new research suggests another kind of catastrophe may have given them a leg up.
“Confirmation” that a meteorite impact killed the dinosaurs has come in the form of panel consensus at the recent Lunar and Planetary Science Conference.
A cocktail of environmental changes initiated by watery catastrophe doomed the dinosaurs, reports LiveScience on research published in Nature Geosciences.
An asteroidal collision is what ultimately doomed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, reports BBC.
Veterinarian-turned-paleontologist Cynthia Marshall Faux has a new hypothesis to explain the “often” awkward positions of fossilized dinosaurs. Faux and a colleague say brain damage and suffocation are likely culprits.
Evolutionary scientists have proclaimed for years that the dinosaurs died out at the end of the Cretaceous, exactly 65 million years ago. This date has been considered an evolutionary fact of nature.
New York Times has announced the latest variant on the ‘dinosaur demise’ theory. ‘New Theory on Dinosaurs: Multiple Meteorites Did Them In.’
Creationists are well aware that rocks are often dated by the fossils they contain.
Dinosaur extinction is still a major enigma of earth history. In this review article, extinctions in the geological record will be briefly mentioned.
