Dinosaurs did thrive until the moment asteroid hit, acc. to site excavators

When a massive asteroid struck Earth some 66 million years ago, were dinosaurs around to experience the cataclysm? Two years ago, a paleontologist claimed to have found evidence at a fossil-rich North Dakotan site called Tanis that dinosaurs were alive until moments after the impact, when floodwaters surged over them.

But many paleontologists were skeptical, especially because the dinosaur data were first discussed in a magazine story rather than a peer-reviewed journal.

Last week, at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America (GSA) in Portland, Oregon, paleontologist Robert DePalma and colleagues added detail to their claims. They presented evidence of fossils from Tanis—including stunningly well-preserved bones, skin, and footprints from what’s probably a Triceratops—that suggest dinosaurs were indeed witnesses to the asteroid that ushered them out of existence.

Philippe Lambert, astrogeologist at the Center for International Research & Restitution on Impacts and on Rochechouart, says what he’s heard so far is “certainly quite impressive.”

Why hasn't something like that happened again?

It's predicted that impacts of this scale only happen once every ~100,000,000 years.

I would love to know what religion dinosaurs practiced...did the fossil records show any of that?

Nooo???

Hmmm...strange how dieties and religion only came once humans came on the scene...not even other primates show signs of worshiping anything...

It's almost like it's a result of human culture and society!
