Post your proof, or a citation to the refereed journal where your proof 
is detailed.  I believe that it would be *extremely* difficult to prove 
that viruses (please note the proper spelling of the entities you 
claim to have investigated) existed at the time of the dinosaurs, and 
even more difficult to prove that they were emerging at the time of the 
extinction of dinosaurs, but I am willing to be convinced as long as you 
provide proof beyond unsubstantiated statements like the above.
