Dinosaurs Took Hundreds of Thousands of Years to Die Off?

I caught this little gem on Slashdot.

In the article, it points out that there are major problems with the sudden catastrophy theory as to way the Dinosaurs died off. I guess there is ample evidence that dinosaurs took hundreds of thousands or years to die off. So now scientist have decided that insects and disease may have killed the Dinosaurs.

This brings up some interesting points.

1) I don't buy the whole timeline of billions of years. I'm a Christian, and a creationist. Just to let you know where I'm coming from.

2) If there is ample evidence that it took a REALLY LONG time (though I doubt the amount of time our scientist are telling us, but rather I believe the timeline is more like thousands of years, and scientist are misreading and giving us a huge timeline. Just compress it), then why isn't this information well known? A lot of people are believing inaccurate stuff because this little factoid isn't being widely distributed.

3) To me this is just another chink in the armor concerning evolution. Evolution will fall once the timeline commonly presented is crushed, which there is already plenty of evidence of it being inaccurate.

Who knows for sure?

However, there could have been eons of time between Gen 1:1 and 1:2, the dinosaurs being in Gen 1:1.

Can't go into all of it here, but v.2 should read "And the earth became without form and void, and darkness upon the face of the deep". It became that way (revolt by Lucifer), was not made that way.

Cool site!
