: Nearly two kilometers in length is roughly four and half times as high (long)
: as the Empire State Building!

: So now it was a much smaller object?

""You'd need an asteroid of about 5km diameter to contribute that much iridium and osmium, But an asteroid that size would not make a 200km-diameter crater," said Jason more, one of the researchers, in an interview with BBC News. "So we said: how do we get something that has enough energy to generate that size of crater, but has much less rocky material? That brings us to comets.""

So no lies as (2km * <2km * <2km) is much smaller than (4/3 * pi * 5km^3).

Also, if my understanding is right, then the Dreaming God was not encased in something solid, but in packing foam.
