Chixulub Was Not The Biggest Impact On Earth [Pic]

Scientists believe that a huge asteroid smashed into Earth 65 million years ago, wiping out the dinosaurs. But if that errant space rock was a whopper, it was a pipsqueak compared to an asteroid that scientists now say slammed into Earth 3.26 billion years ago. That one caused the oceans to boil and shook the entire planet for half an hour.

We knew it was big, but we didnt know how big," Dr. Donald Lowe, a Stanford University geologist who conducted new research to model the catastrophic asteroid impact, said in a written statement. The colossal space rock--estimated to be at least 23 miles in diameter--was likely one of many that struck Earth between three and four billion years ago, during an era scientists call the Late Heavy Bombardment.

Sleepyhallow: no one is denying scientific discoveries, but basing things off of assumption and calling them fact is not proper science.

The biggest impact would be the one that created the moon. That impact sent Earth into it's current spin and tilt.

So nothing has ever happened that you personally have never laid eyes on, is that is 747Pilot?
Centuries of scientific discovery are meaningless, huh?
