Death Of The Dinosaur

Commentary by Roger Oakland
www.understandthetimes.org

 Have you ever wondered what happened to the dinosaurs? Their fossilized remains have been found buried all over the world in massive layers of volcanic ash and mud that have been laid down by water activity. In many parts of the world, dinosaur fossils are scrambled together with different varieties of life which include marine organisms. So what happened to them? Is it possible to come up with a reasonable answer that will help explain the mystery behind their disappearance?

  Over the years, numerous theories have been suggested that attempt to explain the extinction of the dinosaur. While in the past, most dinosaur experts held to "the gradual extinction" view, now there is a new theory that suggests not only the dinosaurs, but countless other forms of life, were wiped out in the past by a global catastrophic destruction.

   University of Berkeley geologist Walter Alvarez is the founder of the sudden extinction theory. He and his colleagues believe they have found evidence that an asteroid or a comet estimated to be about six miles in diameter smashed into the Gulf of Mexico some time ago in the past causing a catastrophe of global proportions. They point to a record of destruction that included scars from tidal waves and chunks of trees buried along with marine deposition.

   An article from the Los Angeles Times, "Meteorite Makes An Impact," describes the region that Alvarez and his team investigated along the western coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It also provides an explanation of how the layers of the earth in that area were possibly formed.  The article stated: "the impact not only ripped off coastal vegetation but slammed the slurry of tree debris, mud, boulders and marine sediment back down on the sea floor. Atop the block lies a multilayered section that appears to have been formed by turbulent waves swaying to and fro. This indicates that the deposits may have been laid down by oscillating waves that ricocheted back and forth across the Gulf region."

   Not all scientists accept the meteorite impact theory for the extinction of the dinosaurs. Some researchers insist that volcanic eruptions may have produced a smoke cloud that plunged the Earth into the equivalent of a nuclear winter. For example, near Drumhellar, Alberta, Canada, the remains of thousands of dinosaurs have been found embedded in flood deposited layers of volcanic ash, some of them in swimming positions. As well, dinosaurs are found in similar conditions in the United States, South America, Russia and Mongolia.

   The facts being revealed associated with the extinction of the dinosaur, sound strangely familiar to the words the Bible uses to describe the worldwide flood that took place in Noah's day. The Genesis record states: "the fountains of the great deep broke up."  Volcanic activity occurred globally, both on the land and under the sea. As well, the Bible claims "the windows of heaven were opened." A cosmic destruction occurred as the Earth was blasted by asteroids or comets from outer space. Great volumes of water from the oceans covered the land. Massive waves, perhaps several miles high containing sediments mixed with plant and animal debris swept from place to place as "the waters returned off the earth continually."

   Is it possible a world wide flood described in the Bible could have wiped out the dinosaurs? The observable evidence seems to agree.
