Something from the Royal Wine Cellar. This has to be done right.

Washington (AFP) - Scientists in the US say they have discovered the fossilized remains of a mass of creatures that died minutes after a huge asteroid slammed into the Earth 66 million years ago, sealing the fate of the dinosaurs.

In a paper to be published Monday, a team of paleontologists headquartered at the University of Kansas say they found a "mother lode of exquisitely preserved animal and fish fossils" in what is now North Dakota.

The asteroid's impact in what is now Mexico was the most cataclysmic event ever known to befall Earth, eradicating 75 percent of the planet's animal and plant species, extinguishing the dinosaurs and paving the way for the rise of humans.

Researchers believe the impact set off fast-moving, seismic surges that triggered a sudden, massive torrent of water and debris from an arm of an inland sea known as the Western Interior Seaway.

At the Tanis site in North Dakota's Hell Creek Formation, the surge left "a tangled mass of freshwater fish, terrestrial vertebrates, trees, branches, logs, marine ammonites and other marine creatures," according to Robert DePalma, the report's lead author.

Some of the fish fossils were found to have inhaled "ejecta" associated with the Chicxulub event, suggesting seismic surges reached North Dakota within "tens of minutes," he said.

"The sedimentation happened so quickly everything is preserved in three dimensions -- they're not crushed," said co-author David Burnham.

"It's like an avalanche that collapses almost like a liquid, then sets like concrete. They were killed pretty suddenly because of the violence of that water. We have one fish that hit a tree and was broken in half."

The fossils at Tanis include what were believed to be several newly identified fish species, and others that were "the best examples of their kind," said DePalma, a graduate student and curator of the Palm Beach Museum of Natural History in Florida.

"We look at moment-by-moment records of one of the most notable impact events in Earth's history. No other site has a record quite like that," he said.

"And this particular event is tied directly to all of us -- to every mammal on Earth, in fact. Because this is essentially where we inherited the planet. Nothing was the same after that impact. It became a planet of mammals rather than a planet of dinosaurs."

The paper is to be published in the Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences.

Dig up a well preserved jellyfish, and conclude all that evolutionism doctrine 🤷‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️
This is just more evidence that when God goes, anything goes. Immorality and weird religions like evolutionism reign supreme.

@edgarblythe,
good stuff E B. A paleontologist whose been a real stickler for detail several decades has been Gerta Keller. She has been downplaying Chixclub , and, while this doesnt fully counter what she says, it does make the Alvarez hypothesis("The Crater of Doom") become more of a heavily evidenced theory .

We ran into a similar rubble "assemblage" in Coastal Delaware two decades ago. There were same amounts of a seemingly "Tsunami derived sediment smoosh" right in the middle of the Miocene .What was found was a huge pile of a similar mass of mixed up marine mammals, fish, coastal land dwelling reptiles and mammals all in the same assemblage. The sediments were all mixed up and this looked like a similar tsunami"smoothie". . anything but the species list of these animals and its contained some speculation of animals getting caught in a unique high storm tide. That one happened around a time of another Crater of Doom where a big bolide hit the base of the NOW Chesapeake bay. I wrote the USGS to have the bolide report (and popular book) writer , Wylie Poag, do a fuller job and see the relationship between the Delaware assemblage and the Miocene meteorite. No luck, and I hope some grad studentfrom U Maryland or U Delaware does an MS or a PhD on it.To date no one has published and Im no longer intrested in following it up

Sometimes , I think God would be so proud if he knew that you began using your brain for more than holding up your halo.

Is that your line? It's very good. Regardless of authorship, I'm stealing it.

@farmerman,
I don't know and that makes it much worse. Years ago, it was mom but she's with Jesus now. I suspect my sister-in-law. They're supposed to do that stuff.


ps.... not pissed
