Methane is pretty flammable.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

I always like the term coup de grace.

The dinosaurs being on the way out prior to the extinction is untrue.

Gives a whole new meaning to SBD.

Also gives the creation museum new possibilities for interactive displays......

Your beliefs do not make you a better person, your behavior does.

Got anything to support that? Or is it just wishful thinking?

The fossil record shows that an increasing number of large dino species – all larger than 2 feet – went extinct in the 5 to 10 million of years preceding the KT event.
The Yucatan meteorite impact – and, more to the point but usually ignored, the Deccan flows, half a million years later – only finished the inevitable process.

RE: Dinos farted themselves to death
The hypothesis that dinosaurs were on their way out was based on a paucity of dinosaur fossils up to the iridium layer. This was a sampling bias however due to a lack of collecting efforts by Paleontologists up to the boundary. New research shows from more recent collection efforts that dinosaur diversity was just as high at the boundary as it was below. The timing of the Deccan traps doesn't work, you can't trigger an extinction with it if they are already gone. Most of the work done on this hypothesis comes from forams and not dinosaurs too.

An article saying basically the same thing. The locality in Montana is not an anomaly, this idea of sampling bias all started with a challenge from an ammonite specialist who challenged a group of Paleontologists in Europe to find an ammonite in the "3 meter gap" while on a field trip, the incentive was a case of beer (gold to us paleonerds). It wasn't long before the first was found, and then another, and another, etc.

I'll try to find the reference for the paper that shows the diversity being the same above the "3 meter gap" as below but I can't do it from my phone unfortunately.

Try giving an intelligent opinion first, instead of resorting to insults.
I've yet to see a single post from you that is even remotely intelligent.

I like this theory, not for its scientific basis, but for its comedic potential Big Grin
