New Study Finds Asteroid Impact and Not Volcanoes Wiped Out Dinosaurs
New Study Finds Asteroid Impact and Not Volcanoes Wiped Out Dinosaurs: USA Today reports that a new study confirms that it was definitively an asteroid impact, and not volcanic eruptions — that killed off most of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago.
OK, but come on! That was over 66 million years ago. Doesn’t USA Today have any news to report that’s a little more recent than that? Not surprisingly, the White House has reached a rather different conclusion on the issue than the scientists, and are blaming it all on the Obama Administration.
Frankly, I’m not so sure dinosaurs even existed in the first place. I mean, if they did, why aren’t there any statues of them around, like there are with all the dead confederates? The way I look at it, the dinosaurs could be just as much the vicious, ugly, and ignorant predators that the folks who support the confederacy were, so it only makes sense they deserve a few statues themselves.
