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.
