I know the cretaceous period ended 65-66 million years ago but when exactly did it end? Did it end as soon as the meteor touched the Earth's surface? As soon as all dinosaurs went extinct? After a certain amount of species went extinct? There may not be a definitive answer but if it was up to you where would you decide where the end of the cretaceous meets the beginning of the paleogene?
I recently came across the young earth theory (the theory that earth is 10.000 years old and dinosaurs coexisted with humans and traveled with Noah and his ark) and of course i thought it was unfeasible but one common argument they keep having is why are we finding soft tissues, proteins and other biochemicals in fossils like triceratops, t-rex and other dinosaur bones of course that doesn't mean DNA BUT they shouldn't have been preserved because such biochemicals don't get preserved after so much time. Another one is that some old fossils are still close to the surface when they should be bu

From the album: Invertebrates and plants(& misc.)Debris, including micro glass "beads" from melted earth ejected into the air, from the KT boundary burn layer. Garfield county, Montana, Hell Creek formation. Late cretaceous (duh) *i added "misc." to this album because this didn't fit anywhere, and I thought it was really cool and should definitely be included somewhere. **There could even be vaporized dinosaur material as part of the glass and melted debris included. There definitely was plenty of it, but I guess realistically, unless it became evenly spread into the atmosphere and airborne debris, this is
