Peek into the past and learn about dinosaurs and other amazing creatures:

Sources & further reading:

66 million years ago, maybe on a Tuesday afternoon, life was the same as it had been the day before or a thousand years before or pretty much a million years before. Things were good for our feathered dinosaur buddies. Until a tiny, tiny detail in the sky changed.

      The Chicxulub asteroid dino extinction is just a theory, it isn't confirmed. I personally don't think an asteroid did that to the dinos.

    So the map isn’t accurate as at this time earth is still a super content as the map is shown as it is my have been after the actual asteroid hit as this helped jump start the tectonic plates moving but the tectonic plates already were moving meaning the Astor’s helped move the plates over and land may have been lost during the meteor’s impact meaning some land cold have been consumed by the crust of earth.

    I've viewed a recent video with one of the best astrologists and meteor watchers we have, and he explained that an event similar to this one or meteors this big or a even a little smaller than this can be spotted, and nothing will be coming to us in the next 100 years, so no need to worry about an extinction event..... HOWEVER! he explained that a meteor that could destroy a city or a smaller country can still happen in our lifetimes (meteors up to about 1km in size, not 10km like the extinction event presented here) these meteors that are up to 1 km size cannot be spotted until it's too late :) and no, at the present time there's nothing the army or NASA can do to stop it if it hits us :).
