I believe there WAS indeed another planet between Mars and Jupiter that was destroyed; I don't believe the orthodox idea that the asteroid belt was simply primordial material that 'just didn't ' coalesce into a planetary body...that seems a bit more fantastic considering all the nice, symmetrical planetary bodies we have in our system.
Now, just what were the two impactors? There's another question.
