There are three major theories about the extinction of the dinosaurs:
I rule out number 2) because of the involvement of ejecta layers. And I rule out number 1) because of the exclusion of other major species. So that leaves me with number 3) , a theory that no scientist has ever embarked upon.
The idea that dinosaurs were all gigantic is incorrect, as many ancient species were nearly as small as birds are today. In fact, today’s birds are dinosaurs. So, dinosaurs aren’t really extinct. But in this article, I am primarily referring to the big ones that are commonly thought of as the dinosaurs.
Scientists have always come up with new theories every time again, until another scientist came up with a more plausible better theory. I don’t know either, as I have never been there witnessing the event. Well, an Alien perspective may shed light upon the mystery.
The commonly accepted idea is that an asteroid or comet caused the environment to change such that animal life would not be possible, because of the extreme atmospheric conditions.
Well, yes, I do accept the idea that a celestial body has hit the Earth, but I do not accept the idea that the atmospheric conditions such as heat, pollution, ejecta and gas would account for mass extinction of the dinosaur but … not the other animals.
It does not make sense. Geologists have measured the thickness of the alleged ejecta blanket, and it is not a thick layer. Moreover, ejecta would cover small animals first and only the largest animals – dinosaurs – last.
Geologists did find numerous proofs that the Earth once got hit by a major asteroid or comet. Several times, actually. Some geologists managed to come with some theories about the Ice Age and the Great Deluge, but they fail in proving the details as well as the big picture.
I could agree on the way debris and ejecta got dispersed by the pressure waves of the asteroid or comet after impact. Some scientists believe that tiny fragments of heated up debris were responsible for the burning of the Earth’s surface. Others believe that animals, such as the dinosaurs got burnt to death or suffocated due to the sulphuric composition of the atmosphere.
But what puzzled me is that only the largest animals, i.e. dinosaurs seemed to have gotten extinct, and the smaller animals such as the crocodile stayed alive.
None of the skeletons, i.e. bones, of the dinosaurs that have been excavated by geologists, appeared to be burnt. You would expect that at such volcanic temperatures the bones would be at least partially cremated. But they are in near perfect condition. They also appear un-cooked. All of them.
In other words, there is no good reason to believe that the dinosaurs have been exposed to extremely high temperatures and the smaller animals remained cool.
Moreover, none of the bones appear to have substantial bruises. You would expect bones to be fragmented by any explosion or pressure wave at which countless pieces of debris would fly around at ultra high velocity, crushing any life-form. But the bones are in near perfect condition. All of them. No bruise, no dent, no burn, no fissure.
Animals do not die because of darkness, a so-called “nuclear winter”, after impact of an asteroid or comet. They can live well for extended periods of time without sunlight. So the post impact winter – if there was any – cannot be the cause of extinction either, because most other species should have been affected in a similar way as well.
The assumption that ejecta would account for destruction of vegetation, planet wide, points to the plausibility of global starvation. And of course, the larger animals are affected most. The finer ejecta particles, powder, if you will, got spread out the farthest. These particles were not hot and were rather soft at the outer spread. Easy to escape from, and easy to blow away by wind.
As ejecta – immediately after impact – would be very hot, like grains of lava, you’d expect it to bind together into a form of rock. But dinosaur bones have not been excavated from rock. Usually from (compressed) movable soil, such as sand, dirt, clay, etc. but not from solid stone, so that contradicts the ejecta blanket theory.
Scientific analyses, however, concluded that the dinosaurs died instantaneously, even though the reason or cause may not have been precisely defined, except for the overall condition of the remains. In addition, not all dinosaurs would die of starvation at the same time. The starvation theory is therefore contradicted. But the theory of instantaneous extinction by pyroclastic circumstances does not hold either, simply because the reach of pyroclastics is very limited, a few hundred miles at the most, compared to the circumference of the Earth.
Then there is the tsunami theory, that says that the entire surface of the Earth has been covered with water caused by a huge tsunami. But that would imply that at the entire surface of the Earth fossils of marine life must be present, at every location near sea level altitude. This is definitely not the case. So the tsunami theory does not hold.
The suffocation theory, i.e. a change in atmospheric composition, for example oxygen depletion and sulfur saturation, is a plausible one. But then it should have been all breathing animals. It doesn’t make much sense, this theory.
So there must have been another factor accountable for global death of these large animals.
Now, that leads me to the question: What did the dinosaurs have in common other than what the smaller animals had in common? What was their basic difference?
There is only one answer that applies to all species: Their size and mass. Simple as that.
As for the size, scientists argue that the larger size was responsible for higher exposure to ejecta and heat. But that would contradict the theory of heat, because more flesh and gut gives higher isolation against severe temperatures, contrary to the smaller animals that had a much thinner skin and flesh mass. And the smaller animals were the ones to survive. Moreover, a larger size would facilitate staying above the ejecta blanket.
That leaves us to the one and only parameter: mass.
At first it may sound even more puzzling than the theorists have come with so far. What has mass to do with survival?
So here I am opening a new factor: Gravity. Mass gets translated into weight by the amount of gravity. The lower the gravity, the less weight a certain amount of mass would have. The higher the gravity, the more weight a certain amount of mass would have. And this is exactly what I am referring to.
When a major nuclear explosion hits the Earth, one of the energy forms that get released or generated is EMP, electro magnetic pulse. EMP is a form of magnetic energy. In extremely large scale quantity, say at planetary scale, that magnetic energy interferes with the Earth’s gravity. Gravity may go up for a while, because the EMP is an additional energy caused by something coming in from an external source. That source could be an asteroid of a certain composite, but more likely some nuclear device[s].
Moreover, the ejecta blanket was relatively cool, exactly like with any fall-out from nuclear bombs. Besides, the ejecta layers appear more compressed than normal gravity would ever cause. Yet this phenomenon has never been addressed by the scientific community.
If dinosaurs would be lying in a bed of ejecta, then they would have fallen into it under influence by increased gravity rather than kinetic forces by falling ejecta onto them. That’s why their remains are not exactly at the bottom of the layer, but a bit higher up. Also the feathered dinosaurs – nowadays known as birds – could not fly for a while.
I neither exclude the possibility of artificial nor natural phenomenon. Who are we to say for sure that in ancient past there was no advanced technology? Who are we to say for sure that we are the only living intelligent species in the galaxy?
From a geological viewpoint it would be almost impossible to measure a day or week of time-line in any fossil or soil. But it must be possible to analyze the dinosaur bones at the sub-atomic level in order to determine the variations in gravity.
On a side-note, I must address the source of gravity.
there are two distinct theories:
- Core system. A central hot magnetic core in the middle of the Earth causing gravity all over the planet, spread all over the surface in even intensity.
- Hollow Earth. Gravity comes from the center of the mass of the crust. Because the EMP may not have reached the inner Earth, gravity may not have suddenly increased there.
Regardless of the planet structure, still the theory of increased gravity by EMP holds. After all, if gravity can be manipulated locally by artificial means, as science has proven possible, then it doesn’t have to be from mother nature. And why should it be far fetched? It is more far fetched to assume that an asteroid has selected only the dinosaurs to die, whilst the other species remained alive.
Where the EMP field was present – at first near the impact zone, then hours later across the entire planet for a short period of time – that is where the gravity increased. I have no way of computing by which factor, however, that number is large enough to cause immobilization of animals with very large mass. A few G is enough. Of course, smaller animals had relative little problem with elevated G’s, because of their smaller mass and their higher agility. They could still move and hide. The sleeping position – in which many dinosaur remains were found – is most suitable for coping with high G force, as it is a natural reaction to elevated gravity.
In addition, the nuclear radiation was responsible for weakening the nervous and muscular system of all animals and humans. And as a consequence, the animals with the greater mass got most affected.
And that gravity EMP burst is exactly the cause of extinction of the dinosaurs. Even only a few days of increased gravity, say a few G’s, caused by temporary EMP would be enough to indefinitely stop these animals from functioning, or drown these animals into the mud or water without any way to walk away due to their sudden excessive weight their legs could not support. The dinosaurs on hard soil could only lie down, and get buried alive by the falling fall-out ejecta, and lie down in starvation. In this regard, the ejecta is not the primary but the secondary cause of death. Without said gravity increase, the ejecta was escapable.
Nuclear bombs 70 million years ago? Yes indeed. The layers in which the dinosaurs bones were found contain traces that, if properly dated, point to that era. No scientist has ever tested the layers on radio active related traces, because the idea of nuclear bombs is dismissed as fiction. Of course the half lives of trans urane elements is shorter than 70 million years, so theorethically no trace will be there. But I am convinced that at the sub-atomic level there are always stable traces no matter the time lapse. If carbon dating is possible, then not only the time but also the characteristic of the scanned particles must be known. How could the bones stay conserved for 70 million years, unless subjected to specific types of radiation? But stigmatic conventional science excludes “wild ideas”, as usual.
Of course the theory on artificial nuclear detonation may be far fetched, but on what solid grounds are we correctly entitled to dismiss that possibility? We must not assume knowing the entire history within 100% acuuracy. Okay, neither must I. But for as long as we refuse to deviate from mainstream ideas, we will never come any further in our knowledge. There are alien based scriptures that talk about nuclear wars millions of years ago.
This concludes my theory. To the scientific community to prove me wrong. Some of their conventional references:

PS: As for the other theory, a temporary biophysical related situation, such as a virus causing deadly disease, that too may explain the “sleeping position” of numerous dinosaur skeletons. The problem with this theory is that such genetic event would not cause any fall-out ejecta neither any form of nuclear radiation.
