Nah their are actually studies that say it would last for years given a big enough meteor. Same for certain supervolcanoes suspected of also causing mass extinction events. We are talking large enough to literally send dirt flying into outer space, above where most clouds form. Also, the largest asteroid impacts would set off volcanoes around the world.

On phone so can't dig too much for links, but heres one:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicxulub_crater

A meteor large enough to do what they theorise would have to:

A) Leave a crater so big it would be visible from space

B) Leave chunks of meteor pieces behind so big they would rival mountains

C) Possibly knock the earth out of orbit.

The earth moves, crater could have disappeared by now due to tectonic movement.
What if it hit the water, causing massive tsunamis around the globe drowning all the dinossaurs? The crater could be Mariana Trench.

"Dinosaurs didn't exist but dragons did" or smart and highly repped members wasting their time trying to educate the one forum member that Alex Jones would distance himself from.

What's more, Mercenary isn't simply content to peddle his wing-nuttery in good humour but instead feels it necessary to label dissenters as "naive".

Mercenary's account may yet turn out to be the most deeply embedded troll account the RVF has ever seen. Possibly a creation of the venerated Suits. I only say this because I've never seen such a vast spectrum of tin foil hattery emanate from a person who didn't explode and ninja-vanish when their bizarre claims were rebuked with concentrated fact-shaming.


That's quite an accusation coming from a member with a rep of 95, but not 1 single one of those is for a meetup with another RVF member in the real world.

The more than 15 RVF members who have met me in real life know I'm legit, and many of those who haven't still take the time to put in a word of appreciation for the work I put in to help other men, especially with regard to helping them overcome unhealthy addictions.

It's a shame you just like scoring points by keyboard jockeying rather than actually getting off your ass and doing something for the community offline rather than spending all your time gaslighting me in various threads.

I hate to Dox Leonard but at the end of the day his reputation is on the line here. The truth must come out.

RE: Asteroid Impact That Killed the Dinosaurs: New Evidence
Also Mercenary have you heard of the Alvarez hypothesis? This scientist in the 80s noted that the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary sediments were rich in iridium. This is weird because iridium from Earths formation accumulated in the iron rich core - it is a siderophilic element. So the theory is that a chondritic meteorite rich in iridium hit Earth 65 million years ago.

Just google "K-Pg boundary Iridium" for more info. It's an interesting theory, because the iridium is a good piece of evidence for the impact extinction theory. I agree with weambulance though - it's just a theory, no idea if it's right.

Speaking of other impact theories, have you heard of Sudbury Ontario? One of the great Nickel deposits on Earth. The theory is that an impact hit the area 1.8 billion years ago and stimulated enough magmatic differentiation to help concentrate ore in that specific locality. Impact breccia, shatter cones and shocked quartz all are the main evidence used to suggest the impact.

Interestingly they think it may have been a comet not a meteorite.

Anyways I'm just saying this to show you that evidence of impacts manifests itself in different ways - you have to look at other evidence because through geologic time, the immediate physical effects of impacts are weathered away or buried by regular geologic phenomena.
