What seems most unbelievable about this hypothesis is that it requires small 
mammals everywhere, all of a sudden and in concert, all across the world, 
from Australia to Africa to Asia to the Americas, in all kinds of

eggs that all the dinosaurs are extinguished at almost exactly (if not 
exactly) the same time!
