Prehistoric Impact Theory 'Doesn't Hold Up,' Scientists Say

Prehistoric Impact Theory 'Doesn't Hold Up,' Scientists Say

Commented May 13, 2014 at 21:55:58 in Science

“The Law of Evolution has been proven by thousands of tests; there is no reason to call it a theory anymore. What other evidence is there for the theory of creation other than some 3,000 year old writing?”

Maezeppa on May 14, 2014 at 10:26:12

“Scientific theories are already the highest and best bodies of explanation science has. Scientific theories never, ever 'graduate' to become scientific 'laws' or 'facts'. Scientific laws are something else, and many theories rest on laws.”

“Get the Justice Department to launch a criminal investigation into Donald Sterling and his business holdings. Do whatever they can find find what crimes he committed in addition to fomenting racial hatred and stick it to him. Sterling is a slumlord and has stiffed people in his business dealings. There are a number of criminal charges that can be filed against him, so get to work and get this obscene racist slumlord behind bars, where he belongs!”

“Brazil just passed a net neutrality law that is one of the world's tightest, which assures that everyone has equal access to the Internet. Might want to proxy a Brazilian server to take advantage of its new law.”

“Vladimir Putin has beat you to it. He's sent navy ships to take over the island.”

Ed VanDyke on Apr 8, 2014 at 18:29:52

“And here I was thinking about Kim Jong Un all along... I guess I should have seen that one coming. Putin can literally make himself the CENTER of attention in East Asia, and he just got divorced... A guy can only take his shirt off so far before he needs to find another way to let everyone know how 'manly' he is... :)”

“Western North America has a long history of supereruptions. In fact, some of the biggest supereruptions took place during a period from 40 to 25 million years ago that is known as the mid-Tertiary Ignimbrite Flareup, which dozens of such eruptions occurred, including the La Garita supereruption in Colorado, the biggest known volcanic eruption of all time.”

“Should the Yellowstone supervolcano blow, not only would half of the U.S. be wiped out, the eruption's effects would be felt worldwide and be enough to bring an end to human civilization. The Toba supereruption 64,000 years ago almost brought the human race to extinction.”

“I have an aunt who moved to Tucson years ago partially because of her allergy problems. My aunt thought she would find relief from her allergies in the Arizona desert. However, she found that Tucson is not that much better because of the vegetation that was brought there for landscaping. She has allergy problems throughout much of the year and has to stay on medication.”

“Tom Clancy was a writer, not an actor. His novels may have been adapted into movies, but, as far as I know, he did not write any movie scripts.”

“In some European countries, all ancient artifacts belong to the government and any found must be turned over to it, even without compensation to the finder. Even artifacts found in your own backyard must be turned over. Germany is apparently one of those countries.”

evolvedtg on Feb 24, 2014 at 14:15:09

“They ought to be be compensated by the museum that ends up with it, or anyone else who ends up profiting from it.

No wonder the finders try and circumvent the system. Nothing in it for finding it and digging it up.

Weird system that doesn't encourage the turning over of treasure, since the govt. wants it so much.

Thanks for the edification, SM!”

“This was not in the U.S., which the finder may keep whatever he finds, provided he had permission from the landowner and an agreement from the landowner to keep it. European countries have their laws, with some, Germany apparently one of them, stating that all artifacts found belong to the government. Even in the U.S., any Native American artifacts found are considered property of the tribe that produced it or its descendants.”

“Western Ukraine was never a part of the country until the Soviet Union annexed it at the end of World War II and added it to their then-republic.

“Is it a mystery why Milwaukee, along with eight of the other nine cities on the list, have Democratic mayors?”

Floyd MacGillicutty on Feb 21, 2014 at 10:45:31

“Milwaukee had a Democratic mayor in 2011 and they didn't even make the top 25. Only difference now is a Republican governor. Does the Milwaukee mayor set gun control laws in Wisconsin?

Can you prove that any of the mayors on that list set laws in their cities that supersede laws set at the state level? Half those states are red.”

“Better yet, why didn't he go and confront the kidnapper? Every caring adult should go to the defense of a child in distress, even if it puts the adult's life in danger. That man who witnessed the kidnapping should have confronted and fought the kidnapper, even though he would his risked his own life and limb. Because children are fragile, their lives are more precious than adults, and caring adults should risk their lives to protect children.”

“The entertainment industry is no place for a minor to work. There are too many factors in the entertainment industry that go against a child's well-being. I would favor a law prohibiting minors from working in for-profit entertainment. Kids can build their talents in school and non-profit community productions and counseling to prepare them for the for-profit entertainment industry should they want to pursue a career there.”
