This portion is interesting.
"Overall it should be concluded that the Kt had a limited effect in terms of extinctions on plant life."
The rate was about 75% of plant species up to around where I lived and decreased dramatically northward.
The period was about a half million years? I read where a dino in New Mexico may have been alive over 770 thousand years after the event.
The extinction rate was not so bad a longer ways from the impact.
There was something in there about dormancy mechanisms in plants. Some must have been dormant for a long time. I have often wondered how much of those old seeds have been blowing into my yard, and how much dino dust I have inhaled in the SW. Sometimes the wind really stirs up the dust from California to here in Colorado. Can irritate your nose and lungs like allergies. Just ain't much vegetation to cause such.
The drought took a toll last year in my yard. Even killed a lot of weeds permanently. Taking some serious watering to get things to come back, and what is ain't all what was.
Well, you should keep a few things in mind. The nuclear winter came very close to wiping off all life on earth. And the cloud of debris around the earth would not have stayed there long. At most a year.

However, it took the ecosystem millions of years to recover from the harsh blow it was dealt. So if you want to argue that it was hard going up until maybe 50-45 mya, I would not argue the point. Even in geological terms, the Earth would have taken a long time to recover.

Without photosynenthesis, plants die. Blocking out the sun killed species in droves. Herbivores feeding on these plants would die too. I don't know if you knkw what a feeding pyramid is - the bottom level is the most plentiful food source. The level above it is herbivores an the level above it is the carnivores that fed on them. When you wipe out 60% of the plants, you will conclude that the remaining plant life cannot possibly support the entire population of herbivora. And the remaining herbivores cannot possibly sustain all the carnivores. A new balance is created, therefore many animals die

You have no evidence that it formed all its own. All you have is a belief "Well it had such a long time, so it must've happened that way eventually".

How do we KNOW the hadrosaur lived in familial groups?
Why are you comparing animals of today to those of 70+ million years ago?
Well, you can google 'hadrosaurs', or even better,'Mayasaurs', to get to the Wiki page and most importantly, the dissertations an fossil information, by following the references.

Anyways. Hadrosaurs built their nests close together. This in itself is not unexpected. The most common defence for any herbivore, even today, is safety in numbers, i.e herding instinct. Carnivores usually have you on speed, strength, weaponry, sense of smell, intelligence and ferocity. However, through herding, animals are able to mount a solid defense. Why? Because many animals can look out for danger, while others feed. Also, in the case of better armed herbivores (like Buffalo, elephants or rhinos today), they can charge down a formidable enemy.

What we see with Mayasaura, is carefully constructed nests, as well as a close grouping of nests. This would imply the herd knowingly built their nests close together, in in order to make the nests more defendable.

To answer your second question. Yes, we do use modern day animals to study dinosaur behaviour. Because although fossils give us priof of existence (once upon a time), it tells us nothing of behaviour.

So we study behaviour today and try to make sense of what the Mesozoic world *could* have been like.

yep - and btw, i didn't mean anything personal about your granny, but i gots to preach the Gospel, because like the Good Book says "it is the power of God onto salvation":-)

i actually got kicked out of preaching at a juvenile corrections facility because of this same scenario when a kid who was challenging my preaching asked if his unbelieving granny went to hell. i had to tell him like it was for the sake of the group and i got let go from being chaplain there. no matter, i'd do it again in a second if it meant standing with Christ for His Gospel:-)
That is just sick dude.

You have no idea what was in that boy's granny's head before she died and what God liked or disliked in her, or what she didn't believe in exactly or why.

And you actually think you will be standing with Christ for that one!

You are crazy

1. Just like ‘Lamb of God’ is a figure of speech referring to Jesus,'serpent' is a figure of speech referring to Satan.
Unless you wanna believe that a snake talked or Jesus was a four-legged furry creature....
2. I'm using the ancient Hebrew word for serpent, nachash, which means 'shiny one' or 'brass one'. "Snake" or "serpent" should not be in the Bible, it's incorrect.
3. Snakes don't talk. A serpent isn't necessarily a snake.
4. No, I wouldn't agree. See 2.
So, whatever it was when it seduced Eve, it got turned into a snake afterwards?

well...as much as I hate them..the big black and yellow garden spiders do have neat looking webs...with the spiral down the middle. We had one a couple years ago that had a huge web on my front porch. Thankfully it was att the end of the porch and out of the way. For some reason...I refused to let my husband tear that web down. It was pretty awesome...and I actually called that spider Charlotte...she hung out for awhile..Lol. I did, however, keep my distance.
. You should try living with Red back spiders and Funnel web spiders.
Red back spiders love hiding under toilet seats, they are everywhere.

We are not talking about evolution. We are talking about abiogenesis.

I find it quite weird, that when we talk about evolution and when a theist brings up the fundamental complexity and the life from non-life issue, then atheists quickly back into a corner stating "No but that's not evolution! That's abiogenesis you're talking about!".

And now when we are talking about abiogenesis, you are bringing up evolution as evidence.

So are you just going to say anything when it suites you?

Whence I die, my "molecules" may reassemble into a heretofore unimagined concoction, which can be quite a horrorful or sexual scenario, as we may see fit to perceive/imagine. The "cules" (my stardust) may rearrange themselves to create a common housefly, to be caught in a nice spider web, to be consumed over a period of time, or I may become "that" spider to create a feast from a nice fat fly. These are simple considerations we may think about after we disburse.

Led Zep is a class act. That riff of 'whole lotta love' is pornography for the ears.
