You have more chance of twisting your ankle walking over river rocks than being hit by asteroids!

You are in more danger from a rock tumbling down in a slip than an asteroid!

You will live a more meaningful life implementing stone tools than worrying about asteroids!

Tell it to the dinosaurs. Oh, you can't. That thing you continually insist can't happen made most of the life on earth extinct.

Tell that to the forest of Tunguska... what's left standing of it. Tell it to the inhabitants of Chelyabinsk.

A large area of forest in Tunguska was laid waste by a meteor just 109 years ago.

Chelyabinsk was damaged and nearly 1,500 people injured. That was just over 4 years ago.

You carry on happily claiming it can't happen, after all ignorance is bliss. The rest of us will engage in rational, evidence based thinking

The universe was a very different place 65 million years ago.  The world was very different 65 million years ago too.  

For a start no humans even existed.

Fast forward a few million years and yet here we are.  

The odds of humans getting decimated by asteroids actually decrease over time due to the expansion of space.

I feel as if I have told you this before.

If anyone has an irrational fear of space rocks here is some advice....  Be wary of what lies underfoot least you stub your toe on a pebble. ( the pebble in this case being meteorphobia )
