What this theory doesn't explain:

    * The impact events are associated with layers of extraterrestrial material, such as the iridium of the KT event. This would need to be present in Earth's mantle and there is little evidence to support that.



I think this is a biggie for the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event. The iridium layer would seem to suggest an impact with an object of extraterrestrial origin.

"He hath need of his wits who wanders wide,
aught simple will serve at home;
but a gazing-stock is the fool who sits
mid the wise, and nothing knows."

I have to admit, I know very little about how this theory came into existence.

I heard of this theory recently, here, in a site that talks about some possible end-of-the-world scenarios: http://www.exitmundi.nl/exitmundi.htm . For some reason, the theory sounds kind of comical to me. Maybe it's the site's description...

"The earth literally caves in underneath your feet. Next thing you know, you find yourself falling into this colossal, gaping hole, many kilometers deep and hundreds of kilometers wide. You, your house, yes: your entire country is sucked in. Deep down below, you might just be able to see the red hot flicker of the Earthís restless bowels.

And if that spoils your day -- just wait. For deep down underneath you, the gaping hole starts to collapse. Starting from below, the crater squeezes tight, like some ridiculously large gullet contracting. Traveling at the speed of sound, the squeezing comes straight at you.

Incoming!: What goes up, must come down

And then, itís: POP! Youíre blasted out of the hole, like a piece of wet soap, catapulted out of someone's hand. And youíre not the only one that is launched. In fact, your entire country pops out, along with tonnes and tonnes and tonnes of rock and soil. The debris -- and you -- fly off into the stratosphere.

Letís face it: by now, youíre probably dead. But for arguments sake, letís say youíre not. Next thing you know, you find yourself hovering over the Earth, like some oddball DIY astronaut, sitting on a chunk of debris. You fly and fly, and then, just when youíre beginning to appreciate the view -- oh boy, going doooooooown!

The Earthís gravity pulls you back in again. You impact on the other side of the planet, together with your entire country. Ka-boom!"

Ya I have studied this theory some. Not much, but a little to know a few basics.Yes it is possible for the volcanoes to collapse and erupt throwing debris into the air. For look at how much a pinch of volcanoe smoke can do to the atmosphere-alot of damage. So then it would set off the ring of fire, therefor creating no sunlight, which would lead to no sun, no heat--consider this theory with the ice age-we have wooly mammoths in perfect condition to prove that. Or the volcanoes would set off the earthquakes resulting in heat and cold air coliding, resulting in tons of hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes-therfor also in return resulting in poor water that would kill you drinking it which in revelations of the end times will be called 'wormwood', bad air, ozone layer gone resulting in overheating. So the 'big' volcanic wordly eruption could lead to so many things. We'll find out one day!! I think since dinasours lived millions and billions of years before us that possibly dinasours went extinct thru many different periods on the earth. Like ice age being one, poor drinking water, sort of a end of days scanerio with the blackened skies and such. Many many times they could have died. Till finally there was none of them left. wink2.gif

Ok, here is my veiws about this

How much gas would it take to send a huge piece of rock into the air when it takes tons of rocket fuel to blast a small rocket into space.  The gas would have to have enough force for something to potentionally explode out of the depth of the ocean and still have enough momentum to reach outer space, and if enough gas were to build up and explode with that amout of force, then the earth would most likely break a little.  I cant see how this idea works.
