Thumbs Up D.R. North Coast Fossils >>Mass Extinction from Asteroid Crash

North Coast Fossils Mirror Mass Extinction from Asteroid Crash

Dominican Today, 26 April, 2012






Exclusive for DT


PUERTO PLATA, Dominican Republic.-



Geology maps of Dominican Republicís North Coast are revealing some areas just 35 million years old, as evidence by recent findings of fossils of creatures which went extinct during the cretaceous period beckon further study.



A black line of molten glass ferules, shocked quartz, rare earth metals such as iridium and many other signs are now confirming that the region has a k-t line or k-pg line marking the end of the cretaceous period, when a huge asteroid whose collision created the Chicxulub crater in Mexico 65.5 million years ago, killing nearly all living creatures in all the continents



First by the ultra high temperatures that set all forest ablaze, followed by a monstrous tsunami which changed all habitats.


The accepted theory says it killed the dinosaurs and was the final push which sent much of the periodís marine life into extinction.


The findings suggest that Sosua existed during that period and millions of years before, as the historical period underneath it dates back to at least the early cretaceous (100 million years).
But further study will tell us more in time.


All fossils relevant to this extraordinary mass extinction and upheaval, also called the K-T event, will be found in an educational setting in Sosua, probably in Casa Lindaís new restaurant.
END


Whooppppeeeee I live in Sosua so I am looking forward to this.

Default Re: D.R. North Coast Fossils >>Mass Extinction from Asteroid Crash

This stuff always fascinates me. What really happened on this earth to create massive extinctions not once but at least 5 different times.

Some of it points to asteroid bombardment. Things like tektites are basically what's being described in this report by the glass ferules.

There is no other known natural method that produces tektites.

The evidence of a deep impactor at Chicxulub crater was discovered while searching for oil through geologic surveys. The fractured crust deep in the earth could only be caused by a meteorite hitting the earth so hard that it went into the earth deeply. Chicxulub is not the only evidence of deep impactors. They are all over the earth, the damage to underground strata still there, long after the surface has weathered over the damage. Deep impactors are caused by large meteorites hitting the earth at steep angles.

Some have been shown in searching for why salt water had intruded into the fresh water aquifer. Some have shown up in other oil surveys. Enough have been found to leave no doubt the complete earth has been hit, often and hard in it's early days.

I will end this with one worrying little tidbit. Today, many scientists think the evidence indicates a sixth mass extinction is under way. The blame for this one, perhaps the fastest in Earth's history, falls firmly on the shoulders of humans. By the year 2100, human activities such as pollution, land clearing, and overfishing may have driven more than half of the world's marine and land species to extinction.
