Re: All kinds of odd observations

>I certainly agree that a large, intact slump block could be explanation.

        While I can't say I know much about this particular detail of the
Chixilub (pronounced CHISH-ih-loob, although it's spelled CHICKS-ih-lub
;-)  ), I do know of another really fascinating instance of slump blocks
having been geologically problematic.  There's a place not too far from
Lovell, WY called Heart Mountain, where gigantic block glides of Ordovician
limestones have come to lie nicely on top of Eocene terrestrial sediments.
Creationists love that one, and for a long time, geologists had a difficult
time explaining it.
