Diamonds Could Mean Comets Caused Killer Cold Spell

Teeny tiny diamonds that are scattered across North America have some scientists believing a "swarm" of comets hit Earth about 13,000 years ago and caused enough disruption to send the planet into a cold spell.

Scientists say that the freezing spell would have been enough to drive mammoths and other creatures into extinction and would transcend any biblical theories. In fact, the researches describe the comet pattern as a series of blinding explosions in the atmosphere equivalent to thousands of atomic bombs.

The nanodiamonds, as they are called, are made under high-temperature, high-pressure conditions created by cosmic impacts, similar to an explosion in Siberia that flattened trees for miles in 1908. Researchers found the little diamonds at sites from Arizona to South Carolina and into Alberta and Manitoba in Canada.

Do you think the theory is plausible, and if so, what will creationists say?
