Large meteorite hit Earth 12,800yrs ago?

These articles are making some serious "apples and oranges" comparisons.

Disease, change of ecosystem and lack of food along with catastrophic flooding wiped out the North American megafauna. The Greenland Crater could date to the end of the Eocene and the Henbury and Kaali impact threw crap everywhere. On top of various impacts in Central Asia and Siberia which I have no desire to link.

There was NO Younger Dryas Impact. The Clovis people happily diverged into the Debert, Dalton, Taylor and other smaller cultures with no breaks in the transition.

@Carnoferox  I guess you can add this to your thread

The scientists never said there was.

"Without necessarily arguing for a single causal factor on a global scale, we cautiously hint at the possibility that these technological changes, in North America and on the African subcontinent at about the same time, might have been associated indirectly with an asteroid impact with major global consequences," says Thackeray. "We cannot be certain, but a cosmic impact could have affected humans as a result of local changes in environment and the availability of food resources, associated with sudden climate change." https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/10/191002110329.htm

There is probability and improbability in research.

"Hint the possibility" especially without looking at other factors is "sloppy science". Especially with all those "non-factors" they chucked in there.
