Re: K-T impact theory

This discussion, in its most recent form, began with a logical error that 
is very very very very common in debates.  You cite an "authority" who 
says something rather extreme about some hypothesis of theory, then 
proceed to demolish whatever the claim was.  Then you say, "See?  The 
theory can't possibly be true."

Of course, all you have done is show that the cited authority was wrong.
