Scientists confirm that asteroid impact killed the dinosaurs 66 million years ago

Here's the abstract

In plain English - when the evidence of the asteroid was first tested 20 years ago, measurements weren't as accurate, and there appeared to be a very large gap between the impact and the start of the dying off.  They've retested with more modern equipment and gotten more accurate readings, concluding that climate change occurred and had an influence prior to the impact, but the asteroid was the event that occurred simultaneously.

Will this change how people attempt to present their cases on other issues like climate change and religion?

  • I'd like to think so but, I doubt it.
    Honestly until my question a few days ago, I thought true creationists were just a myth, that they didn't exist anymore. Most religious people I know, accept evolution and have changed their thinking of what the biblical "days" were.

  • Nope it's a lie... The world is only 6000 years old. Lol well people use to think the world was flat and well we now know its not. I think a lot of Christians are starting to except evolution. I mean you can only deny facts for so long right?

  • I don't believe these things to mutually exclusive, science and religion. I grew up with faith AND believing that Dinosaurs were killed by an asteroid.

    It used to be that you were the norm. I was raised in church but never had an issue with good scientific knowledge. Now though, it appears that the zealots rule the roost.....and the classroom
