    False or unsupported assumption. There have been multiple mass extinctions in the history of the Earth, why this one? Just pick the one that sounds the best? You don't seem to realize the time sequence of the dinosaur extinction is off by about 60,000 years from the Chicxulub crater. It's just as likely the dinosaurs were hunted into extinction like the whales and buffalo and most others neared extinction before humanity awakened to limited supply.

    Science is not the authority on ancient history.

    In 1963, a geologist counted 46 different theories for dinosaur extinctions by the scientific community, and many more have been added since then. Probably only the cause of the Pleistocene ice age has generated as many bewildering theories. As of 1968, there were 60 theories for the cause of the ice age...

    If the moon is made of cheese, how did the fish survive? Why wouldn't fish survive? Any evidence or facts at all?

    Many species of fish did go extinct, and not all dinosaurs did, some survived and evolved into birds.

    The marine and freshwater environments of fishes mitigated the environmental effects of the extinction event.

    Not every creature on Earth died. Some survived because they could adapt to the new conditions, or their habitat was not as significantly affected.

    Everything big died. Sticking to the situation on land, it's easy enough to apply it to the ocean and easier because we know the names of the creatures. Small animals eat bugs and seeds for the most part. Lots of bugs eat dead stuff. There was no shortage of dead stuff. Seeds are also ubiquitous. Small animals are eaten by big things. The big things couldn't get enough of them and died. Once they were dead they stopped eating the little things. Over the course of then next few thousand years little things thrived without predators and the plants returned. Over the course of the next several million years the little animals evolved into big animals that ate plants and the plentiful little animals.
