    The one that gave the coup de grace to the dinosaurs, by the Yucatan penninsula. What year do you think that happened? It left a crater over 100 miles wide and is now covered by about a mile of debris. Why doesn't the bible say anything about such a huge event?

    And what about the Ries and Steinheim impact craters in Germany? And that small hole in Arizona? I suppose nobody noticed because they weren't in the middle east. Jebel Waqf as Suwwan should have been noticed though!

    How big were those German ones? I walked around the rim of the Barringer crater in Arizona, it was caused by a meteor not much bigger than a school bus, small on the larger scale of things. The Yucatan impact now is thought to have been a very fast moving comet probably a mile or more wide.

    Don't know if they allow it these days, but back in the 1970s I walked down to the bottom of the crater. My parents stayed up on the rim. I remember Mom saying she was surprised at how quickly I got to the center of the crater.

    The Ries crater is big enough to contain the town of Nordlingen. In fact, you can't see the rim from the town because it is over the horizon. You have to climb the church tower to see the rim. The church is made of Suevite, a typical impact generated rock. The Jordanian crater is 6 km across so that should have been noticed if humans were about at the time. If nothing else, it would have made a hell of a bang!

    6 km is a lot bigger than Barringer in Arizona, which is more like 1 km across.

    No answer from the religious right crowd.

    Probably trying to find something biblical they can interpret as likely to make a large crater in Jordan. Has to be post-deluge though, anything that can raise mountains and excavate ocean basins in less than a year would have obliterated even the largest crater.

    The people that recorded the information in the Holy Bible were living on the opposite side of the Earth. It may of happened at about the time of the worldwide flood, but that is just speculation like the dates the evil-lutionists give. 😏

    Its funny how at one point the Bible is the word of God, and the next moment the writings of an ignorant tribe somewhere in the middle east.

    The fact is that the books of the Bible were written long after the events of Noah, and presumably most large meteors. So there is no way the writers would have been witnesses anyway.

    They had the witness of the Holy Spirit. 😏

    What happened in Mexico had nothing to do with the Israelites.

    Given the effects of recent meteor strikes (Russia for example) on global weather, and taking into account the size of the Chicxulub impact do you not think your Israelites would have noticed something?

    Nobody said it did. It apparently also had nothing to do with the holy spirit. Or you, or anyone the Bible might have been addressed to. But then that applies to most of science. Why don't you just stick with Israelite stuff instead of trying to discuss things God doesn't want you to know about?
