A new theory explaining the extinction of the dinosaurs is Methane gas leaks from the bottom of the ocean.......
(That's right.The Earth cut the cheese and a T-Rex lite a cigarette and

There is loads of theories in this subject and i find it fascinating how a whole world was wiped out in 1 go, some of the theories include

[list=]Global Warming

Ice Age

Astroid

A comet that flies close to the earth every 26 million years, scientest thinks this went off course and hit earth. This changed the weather dramatically which killed off the plants and dinosaurs

Some scientist's believe that most dinosaurs turned into birds and fish.

Massive volcanic eruption[/list]

The honest truth is that NO ONE knows the truth behind dinosaur extincion and no one ever will

That is part of the challenge where science is concerned - new theories may always be proposed, and provided that evidence may be identified, hypotheses may either be validated or rejected. Some of the current theories can give new insight into not simply how a dominant species could become extinct, but also how perilously close our own species is reaching this point.

I think that the only certainty is that no single theory will explain everything - but conflicting theories and ideas give additional insight. For example, although some scientists believed that the KT Event led to mass extinction of dinosaurs with a single asteroid strike (with dinosaurs becoming extinct overnight), others believe that several asteroid strikes led to a less severe decline in population over a longer time frame. At the moment, evidence suggests there were at least three major asteroid strikes - with the impact having differing degrees of severity on distinct populations.

But.... if you get a chance, review the literature (Peer Reviewed Literature), and reach your own conclusions.

many dinos have been found with food in their mouth or belly--so we need to always remember--we dont know the day nor the hour....
