Even this would only show that _certain_ dinosaurs _may have been_ killed by
the K-T impact (after all, the bones could have been scorched shortly after
the dinosaurs died from more natural causes, such as flooding). And even if
those particular dinosaurs _were_ killed by the impact, it would _still_ be
premature to extrapolate the discovery to _all dinosaurs, everywhere_(!).
