The internet just learned how the dinosaurs went extinct

There’s been talk about dinosaurs on the internet, and honestly I wonder what a lot of people did in science class as kids.

It all started with a tweet – er, X-post, more accurately – from the user @latkedelrey. They posted: “Did you know that many people believe the asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs by hitting them all at once?”

Of course, the mass extinction that wiped out the dinosaurs 66 million years ago wasn’t an asteroid that somehow killed every dinosaur upon impact. As the theory goes, there Was a massive impact and pressure wave that threw tons of debris and soot into the air. This reduced the amount of light that could reach Earth, destroying large amounts of plant growth and causing destruction in the food chain.

Honestly, if you had just watched The land before our time Maybe you have a good idea that this happened. Apparently a lot of people missed this movie.

The replies to the original post contained all sorts of theories and misunderstandings. It seemed to be a collective moment for many people who simply accepted that “an asteroid killed the dinosaurs” and moved on. There was also opportunity for lots of jokes.

There was this particular kind of Christian way of looking at things.

There was this joke about heat-seeking missiles.

Or the idea that you could just… avoid extinction. In other words, the “built differently” defense.

Concert theory is a personal favorite.

Honestly, these comments just seem like the truth to many people.

There was a mix of jokes, strange comments, and people’s amazement when they learned that the dinosaurs didn’t literally all die from an asteroid impact. In other words, it’s just another day on the internet.
