It Came from Outer Space?
American Scientist ^ | November-December 2004 | David Schneider

Posted on 11/25/2004 5:13:07 PM PST by SunkenCiv

Speranza points out another difficulty with the impact-origins theory. Large blocks of limestone sit within the boundaries of the Sirente "crater." Such limestone would not have survived an impact. So if Ormö's theory is correct, one must surmise that somebody set these giant chunks of rock in place since the crater formed. To Speranza, that just didn't make sense. Speranza and colleagues further argue that Ormö's radiocarbon dating gave one age for the main feature (placing it in the 4th or 5th century a.d.) and a completely different age for a nearby "crater" called C9, a date in the 3rd millennium B.C.

In 1953, at the age of 10, I saw my first movie (ever) at the drive-in, it was titled: It came From Outer Space

It Scared the daylights out of me. My son (Dr. blam) sought out and viewed this movie. He said he laughed through the whole movie. LOL

Would you like to know of another impact "failure" : the impact-splash theory of earth-moon formation? It is highly hyped as a religious tenet, but has fatal flaws : statistical probability of the right hit on the proto-earth's terminator is far too small of an area for the mars-sized body to impact; and, we wouldn't even BE here as water rich life if a mars had hit the earth, even 4.4 billion years ago. Remember the SL9 comet fragments that hit Jupiter? It would have been a GAMMA RAY burster all over the planet = NO water(and other delicate molecules)would have survived on a surface hotter than the sun. So, where did our OCEANS come from? Contact waynepowell25@hotmail.com for the real answer as to how our earth-moon system came to be. Hint:there was an original, hydrate-rich terran ring system...

Check my links page -- I started a topic a few months back in which there was a lively thread regarding the origin of the Moon.
