The Chiemgau impact – don’t believe in Wikipedia!
The Wikipedia page “Chiemgau impact hypothesis” is still manipulating science and defaming scientific research for the worst, when the visitor reads in a few sentences that the impact hypothesis is obsolete.
For some years now we have been trying to protest against this misleading of Wikipedia readers and the scientific community – in vain. Corrections we made with a host of documented quotations were deleted at once – apparently with the tolerance or even the forcing of the administrator. The initiators of this manipulation, partly close to an insult, are largely known to us as totally unrelated to the scientific research subject, which does not change the situation.
For Wikipedia, this is not a glorious fact; the claim to encyclopedic honesty and correctness is not fulfilled in this case.
Comprehensive and consistent information:
The visitor and reader of this website is requested to use honest, scientifically correct and according to strict scientific rules oriented information of this website about the Chiemgau impact.. A compilation of the scientific findings, published internationally at renowned congresses and in peer-review journals, proves the existence of what is probably the largest terrestrial meteorite crater strewn field, which is also widely accepted internationally.
