In modern palaeontology, the consequences of the meteor strike in the Yucatan 1.3 million years ago are now accepted as one of the dominant hypotheses as to how the dinosaurs went extinct. Beyond the initial destruction and shock wave, the dust thrown into the...
How the dinosaurs died
By: Carmen Colin
Dinosaur fossils have been found all over the world. Finding these beautiful wonders has raised many questions, and paleontologists have answered these fumbling questions with the evidence that lies in the fossils. One question has been answered, but speculations are still being made. How the...
Tyrannosaurus rex: Hunter or scavenger
By: James Johnson
Tyrannosaurus Rex, was it a "vicious" Hunter that attacked others or a "lowly" scavenger that ate the scraps from true predators? This has been debated ever since the first skeletons were uncovered, at least for several decades. The topic was immortalized in the comic strip...
Scientists wonder were we once on the Soup Menu for Dinner
By: Kenneth Boser II
The primordial soup theory, as a means of explanation of the "way things came to be," lacks sufficient evidence to be called a theory and as such, would be considered at best conjecture, (mostly bunk), or at worst fantasy (completely bunk). Number one, the...
Primordial Soup Theory is False
By: Mark Harmony

Do you believe in the Primordial Soup Theory
By: G E Barr

Information about lamp shells (Phylum Brachiopoda)
By: M E Skeel
Lamp shells were common at the beginning of the Cambrian period some six hundred million years ago. Their shells are readily fossilised so there is a good record of them from this time on. They were very common in ancient seas but only a few...
What really killed the dinosaurs?
By: James Robinson
There is a widely held belief that 65 million years ago a massive object crashed to earth from outer space, an event that resulted in the extinction of the dinosaurs, and most of the other life forms then existing at that ancient time.Substantial geological...
Doubt raised on the cause of dinosaur extinctions
By: DianeD
Doubt Raised on the Cause of Dinosaur ExtinctionsA mere 65 million years ago, Tyrannosaurus Rex, a forty-five foot scavenging carnivore, Triceratops, a mellow-mannered, five-ton herbivore, and many other species of dinosaur roamed the planet. Due to the well-preserved fossil record, paleontologists are able to determine...
What really killed the dinosaurs?
