C'mon! Don't be a tease! Your theory sounds much more interesting than Darwin's. Won't you please elaborate? I am particularly interested to hear you extrapolate this backwards through time. You know, to describe the interactions between what we consider modern man and all the various species that have been and gone over the millenia.

I used to imagine what it must have been like to live alongside dinosaurs, then as I grew older, I was told that man and dinosaurs never coexisted in time. But your theory clearly dictates that my childhood musings must have in fact been true. I would dearly LOVE to hear more about it.

Sure, that's easy.

Man and dinosaurs lived in different places, and when man went into the same places as the dinosaurs, they were either eaten or the dinosaurs left them alone to eat something much bigger. It wouldn't make much sense for a dinosaur to eat 1000 humans, when it could just take down one good sized dinosaur. Plus, lots of dinosaurs were herbivores, they wouldn't bother eating people.

I'll turn the question around, maybe you will understand better:
People live in areas with lots of animals which can easily eat them, like lions and tigers, so why haven't they all been eaten?

There are sharks in the water, they can easily eat humans, yet humans swim with sharks. I've seen lots of video of people swimming with sharks, but the sharks prefer to eat fish, and leave the humans alone. Why? Because sharks don't recognize people as food. However, if a guy is on a surf board, from below he looks a lot like a seal, which is shark food, so they get bitten. Strangely, the largest percentage of shark attacks are non-lethal, because the shark realizes the person is not the food they like, and let them go. I'm sure it was the same with dinosaurs.

Any other questions?

You saying the cute little bunny rabbit will outlive all his predators?

Or, the nonproductive human will outlast the productive human?

You're just fukkin around with me, right? Hell, look how nice people in California are, and watch what happens to them when they implode.

the nice little bunny rabbits were able to outlive the sabre toothed cats. Smilodon probably lived off of deer, yet the nice deer are here, and smilodon is gone.

More questions? You betcha. But first, back to my original question: I was not wondering of the survivability. As you stated, there are many predators that exist today that can (and sometimes do) kill and eat humans. Luckily, we are smart enough to find ways to work around those dangers.

That being said, if the creatures that we recognize as modern humans existed millions and millions of years ago, why did it take until just the last thousand years or so for us to develop society, industry, art, philosophy, etc?

If the humans that you say coexisted with dinosaurs were precisely like modern humans, then our capacity to think, and our abilities to problem solve, improvise, and understand were the same - why, then, did we not see what we consider to be modern technology springing up in the mesozoic era, for instance?

Nobody HERE is talking about religion. We are talking about history, pre-history, and evolution.

Nothing to see here. Move along...

Honesty, I can see a dinosaur sitting down on a recliner in front of the tv set, watching Discovery Channel while snacking on a supersized bag of people. *crunch crunch crunch*

Probably because they relied on an oral tradition. If you consider the native north american indians were thought to have crossed the bering straight land bridge at the time of the ice age, it begs the question, since they came from Eurasia, why don't they have the same level of technology. Instead of them having all the stuff the Chinese had, they lived in deer skin teepees. Yet strangely, the people to the south, who were the same genetic stock (the Incas and Mayans) were way ahead of them technologically. So why? Because they lacked the written word. The same can be said of the Australian aborigines and many other "primative" cultures around the world. We don't all have the same technology, yet we are all the same genetically speaking.

So there you go, no written language, no culture/writing/technology.

Next question?

I'm in class right now so I don't have time to read all the responses, but I would just like to say that I was kicked out of the house when I turned 18, worked 2 full time jobs to survive. Went back to city college when shit hit the fan, worked multiple part time jobs to support myself, while completing my associates and bachelors, (starting masters soon)I pay for everything on my own and don't rely on anyone to help me. My truck is paid off and I just landed a bitching job at SpaceX! Working on rockets! All this and I'm only 24, so I dont give a **** about people my age when they complain there parents dont buy them shit. **** them!

Oh and my student loan payments are pennies because I paid for most of education out of pocket.

Venting over.
