And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.(Zechariah 14:5) KJV
The Bible gives us an account of an event which may have been an extraterrestrial impact. The impact wasn’t in the Holy Land, but it was so severe that there were world-wide earthquakes.
Zechariah is referring to an event which was prophesied by Amos, as a way of giving the people of his time a way to understand the severity of the catastrophe which was going to come upon the world.
The words of Amos, who was among the sheepbreeders of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.(Amos 1:1) NKJV
This means that physical evidence of a massive impact crater can be incorporated into the narrative of human history, it doesn’t have to have been a prehistoric event which killed the dinosaurs. Besides which, the dinosaurs were buried in Noah’s flood.
More than anything this illustrates the disastrous state that the popular science (SciPop) has gotten itself into since it became wholly narrative-driven. It doesn’t matter what evidence we find, it has to be hammered to fit the narrative. In this case it is the fabled extraterrestrial impact at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary which cause the mass extinction of the dinosaurs.
