“Sex, Drugs, Disasters and the Extinction of Dinosaurs” by S

Cleverly following the title of the article, Gould presents the theories of Colbert, Cowles and Bogert, which is based on testicular failure of male dinosaurs due to global warming (sex), Ronald K. Siegel, who presumed that massive overdosing due to poisonous flowering plants (drugs) may have caused the extinction of the dinosaur and finally, the theory of Luis and Walter Alvarez which is focused on the possibility of a huge asteroid striking earth and causing the dinosaurs, as well as other species, to become extinct.

Gould states that the theory of testicular failure has little merit because scientists would need information from the remains of dinosaurs that fossils simply cannot provide. Also, as Gould points out, this theory does not take into account the extinction of several species of marine life in the same time period.
