Why Did Mammals Survive the 'K/T Extinction'?
Jan. 31, 2010

Why did mammals survive the 'K/T extinction'?
excerpt from above:
Picture a dinosaur. Huge, menacing creatures, they ruled the Earth for nearly 200 million years, striking fear with every ground-shaking stride. Yet these great beasts were no match for a 6-mile wide meteor that struck near modern-day Mexico 65 million years ago, incinerating everything in its path. This catastrophic impact -- called the Cretaceous-Tertiary or K/T extinction event -- spelled doom for the dinosaurs and many other species. Some animals, however, including many small mammals, managed to survive.
The tendency of man's nature to good is like the tendency of water to flow downwards.
