No it isn’t! It may be how you reacted, but many people were perfectly aware of the fragility of our ball of rock in a hostile solar system. All the discovery of the Yucatan event did was validate that understanding.
Do you have ANY idea of the size of the sun? Even a big comet would make no difference, a mere drop in the ocean. Any solar flare would devour/vaporise a comet before it got close enough to make a drop mark on the surface.
Here is something for you to ponder, at least 1,300,000 earth’s would fit in the sun. but perhaps a comet the size of Jupiter would make an impression but a comet the size of a comet creating the damage you are so paranoid about is just laughable
More info to educate yourself with, debris is falling into the sun and just about every other object in the solar system all the time. Around 14 million tons of debris from space falls on the earth each year. I can’t be bothered with the calculations but it is possible to use that figure to estimate given the surface area and colossal gravity of the sun how much falls into the sun.
As they say, a little knowledge can be dangerous and it is sure that you have little knowledge.
Actually you were the one pretending and what if and maybe, I was simply having a laugh at your expense

The title of the article is no more than that. The scientists weren't mystified or confused. While they were somewhat surprised it survived, they also never took the position it had to be destroyed. Just likely.
Why do you hate scientists so much? Talk about fixations!
And, no, I didn't do the icons. Someone else apparently thinks you're a bit of a dork as well.
I don't hate science. It is an awesome tool. But unlike you I know science can be wrong. They are not always right as you seem to think they are. Up until Lovejoy passed through the corona they believed it could not happen. That is the thing with science. They make theories and guesses and it is perceived right because usually there is no way to show it wrong, until Lovejoy proved it wrong. I say there is life on 18 other planets, in 18 other galaxies. It has to be right because you can't prove me wrong.

Provide the post number where I made such a claim. OR STFU.

They though it unlikely. Not certain. You seem to have a great deal of difficulty with such a simple concept.

Everything you just posted is wrong. Starting equating scientific theories with guesses.

Are you REALLY this stupid? Or just playing at it? If the latter is the case, you're doing an excellent job. Congratulations.

I can see sht in the dark, Infrared forward looking radar with look down shoot down capability. I can see 900 yards 20x closer with a
TruPlex rectical low light with 1/4 click moa, that translates to
6 in a 1/2 inch circle @ 100 yards. The imaginary line is outside the 9 ring.

Does that answer your question?

Actually the evidence already provided DOES go against your claims. The fact that you not only ignored it but didn't even understand a single word of it is rather telling. It's not just simple time factors that's a problem, it's the massive massive inbreeding which leads to inevitable population decline. And that's not a tenable position when you only start with 8 people, half of which are already related. And even worse for the animals who had only two.
In short, you're talking out your azz. This is not a problem. Just say Goddidit with magic and all your problems will be solved.
Hey Dud! use your scientific genius to tell us all again how massive inbreeding wouldn't allow for a population of only two animals to flourish yet you believe that all life came from a puddle of goo!....ha,ha,ha,ha.

You really need to be on the comedy channel, you are not ignorant, no, that comment shows you are simply stupid, reinforced by a hatred infused denial of any opposing opinion of your nihilistic world view .Don't despair! you have brethren of the same stupidity, the sucking bone who stated that,...( something that was alive then died can't come back to life,..but something that was never alive could come to life). Ha! both of your statements show a total lack of any intelligent thought process, certainly devoid of logic.
Now! let the evo-puddlegooists rush to the defense of their stupidity exposed brethren.

No, they were very surprised when it happened. They did not think it could not happen. And Lovejoy barely made it through. If I recall correctly it lost 90% of its mass. They thought that a comet approaching the Sun that closely was very unlikely to survive.

Latitude can be determined from an intimate knowledge of the stars and a fixed reference spot on land. LONGITUDE requires an accurate measurement of time. Something that was not developed until the late 1700's.

Historically, that is not at all accurate.
Especially as to the colonization of the South Pacific islands.

I agree man used to use the stars to navigate. Man used to use his knowledge a lot back in the day but anymore with advancing technology modern man(as a whole) is not only getting lazy but also in a way is becoming dumber from technology. Modern man does not have to do or think like they used to, technology does it for him. I read a article today I think it was direct tv that now you don't even have to search channels, just talk into the remote for what kind of movie you want and it pulls them up lol.

I cant say I disagree.

Our knowledge is greater today than ever before, and growing at an exponential rate. Yet overall, portions of our CULTURE are growing dumber simultaneously.

...such as New Earth Creationists.
...and Noachian Flood proponents.

You get my drift.

Charles, can you tell me where this god of yours was for the nearly 200,000 years that modern man has been around....you know, before the goat herders 'identified' Him/Her/It?

And maybe enlighten us as to where this god has been since the goat herders wrote their little book of myths.

You have faith....we have checkable, testable facts.

You basically have nothing tangible to offer....why is that?

Can you come back with something substantial, instead of your usual flippant answers to others?
