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?

Really?! Colin Farrell? :zzz: He just doesn't do it for me.

...true, kas, but it's not like you'd wake up and go 'Whoa, I did what with this swamp monster?'. He'd at least throw in a few cute pet names with that brogue, which would then make everything right in the world. ;)

Colin Farrell could probably make me do a lot of things I wouldn't be proud of. :oops:
em1282 em1282 8 years
:rotfl: Jude, I think the Farrell could get me to do the same thing. I do want a tattoo, after all...

"PLAYA" :ROTFL: Well, that makes me feel better. Em, that Colin Farrell you've got in your avatar...he almost makes me not miss the Firth. Colin Farrell could get me to tattoo "Playa" on myself any day.

You just can't make up that kind of stuff. Gotta love it. I kind of wish I had gotten a gift like that from an ex. Makes for a great story at least! My one ex almost got a tattoo of my name on himself. He's probably gotten some ill-advised tattoos since then though. Hopefully not one that says 'playa'. ;)

Em I wish I was kidding! He had it engraved at one of those little kiosks at an amusement park. I have no idea why he thought it would be a good idea to advertise that he was a player on his girlfriend. Ah good times. ;)

"Nicer than my ex (actually a few exes ago...), who gave me a "gold" ring with "Playa" engraved in it." :rotfl:

I can understand that. I almost always feel that way after ou Christmas show. Although that could also be because we only do the Christmas show, and then do it 3 straight weekends, 4 shows a weekend.

I just finished a really busy time. So I have a bit of a break before my next project. Just little gigs no big show. It's nice to have some time off truth be told. :-)

HF - I wasn't referring to Citizen, and that "here" was supposed to be "hear". I was referring to all the "What killed the dinosaurs?" thoeries that have been spouted off over the last 20 or so years.

The ring my ex gave me had a nanodiamond in it. Maybe even two.

Hain Citizen is not debating with you, she is just posting a story. Apples. Oranges.

No it is NOT citizen's responsibility to prove every single theory wrong before posting this one. That's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard.

I don't know about this theory I mean, what are the parameters, was there any experimental control. What if the mammoths were high on peyote, and that's why they died. Maybe all of the smoke from that peyote made God think that the earth was burning and he had to put out the fire. Come on sugar, you posted this, so it is your responsibility to explain to me how they came up with this determination when there are so many other things that could have been the case. I mean it cannot possibly be true unless you can prove that the other explanations aren't true. Or is that only the case when a conservative is posting, not a liberal?

Creationist will do as they always have some in the face of scientific evidence (such as the Earth not being the center of the galaxy and universe), ignore it and let time fade the weight of their errors until their followers believe everything they say again. I'm with Ilanac 13, I hope they pursue this so that we can learn more. It's been common thought that a comet was involved in the ice age. These diamonds are definitely supporting evidence and progress, but I would like to hear more before any hoopla is made.

It wouldn't have an impact on Christianity: only on people who call themselves creationists and christians.
stephley stephley 8 years
I think creationists don't have much to say about it because creationism is such a poorly thought out notion they don't know what, if anything, this would add to their picture. And that's why I don't think creationism belongs in our schools.
