i think that we were alive with the dinorsars because we proberly survived of what ever happend and started human life again.

Tiger...In fact, the Cretaceous-Tertiary Extinction Event, also known as "The K/T Extinction Event," did NOT anihilate all living organisms from the earth. It also wasn't the only such catastrophe in the history of life on earth, and statistically speaking, not the worst. We know of at least one other that occurred at the end of the Permian period, 250 million years ago, when over 70 percent of land-dwelling animals and 95 percent of marine animals were killed off. Just how this global extinction came to pass, is still a mystery.

One clade (or group consisting of an organism and all its descendants) of dinosaurs that DID survive the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event, are our modern birds (Neornithes).

Although it was in dispute amongst various scientists...for over a century since Thomas Henry Huxley proposed that birds were descendants of dinosaurs...by the 1990s, most paleontologists considered birds to be surviving dinosaurs, and referred to 'non-avian dinosaurs' as those which had gone extinct.

Prehistoric crocodiles (an offshoot, along with pterosaurs and dinosaurs, of the archosaurs), as a group, also survived the Cretaceous-Tertiary Extinction Event. Present day crocodiles and alligators are little changed from their prehistoric ancestors, and remain extremely well adapted to their environment.

What about the fossils found with human footprints inside dinosaur footprints? This would suggest that something more was going on then our contemporary knowledge is accounting for.

Or type Human and dinosaur foot prints fossils in your search engine, all kinds of stuff comes up from both sides of the debate.

There are several different fossils like this that has been found, some of them I am sure are a hoax. Just as there has been many missing evolutionary links that have turned out to be a hoax. But, it would be hard to prove all of them a hoax. Just a thought. I dont care one way or the other, these kind of discoveries to not mess up my worldview. I am open to the evidence. Its interesting eater way.

Yeah but you're arguing a fallacy. You made those dinosaurs up. The Flintstones actually happened.

Since we're at it: rosieopulus and and chenysaurus sound horrifying and obamasaur sounds like a pansy.

Sorry about that. I accidently clicked convince on your other post.

However, it does appear you are correct sir. You are a gentlemen and a scholar. If there is a picture on the internet or it appeared on broadcast television in the 1960's it must be true!

While I agree with you that humans were definitely not contemporaries of dinosaurs (the modern human species is dated in thousands of years, not millions), I believe you're incorrect about the nonexistence of human fossils. There are fossils of Cro-Magnons, for example, which are anatomically modern humans. Moreover, there are different kinds of fossilization, and not all take such long periods - although it's true that all do require very specific conditions.

Wow, great argument. "You think"?

These are the facts. Dinosaur fossils are found in abundance up to the end of the Cretaceous period. Thereafter, non-avian dinosaurs disappear completely. The end of the Cretaceous (and beginning of what was called the Tertiary, but is now called the Paleogene) was about 65.5 million years ago. The earliest hominid fossils are found in sediments laid down approximately 6 million year ago. And those things aren't even human; they are our most distant recognizably bipedal ancestors. The earliest Homo sapiens fossils date from 200,000 years ago.

So let's do the math: you are out by a factor of THREE HUNDRED. Dinosaurs have been extinct for 300 times the number of years that humans have walked the earth. For 99.67% of the time since the dinosaurs disappeared, there have been no humans. Can you appreciate the scale of that error?

The recorded history of mankind goes back perhaps 6,000 years. Generously, then, there have been ten thousand human histories between us and the dinosaurs. Am I getting through yet?

Wikipedia is only a click away. Next time please use it before bringing this weak crap.

We weren't "made", and there isn't any particular point in time at which you could say, "that's when humans started". 200,000 years ago there were people who looked very much like you and me. They almost certainly had complex language skills (but no written language), and they were definitely very good tool-makers. As late as 2 million years ago, our ancestors looked like something we'd be more inclined to call an ape (the Australopithecines). In the 1.8m years between, the various members of the Homo genus evolved. Most of them are now extinct; we are the survivors.

Google "hominid". It's a fascinating family tree.

I did in fact google that after reading your first argument.
I can not find any that have withstood scientific examination.
It would indeed be very interesting if any of these fossils were proven human and from the same period, unfortunately they have not been.

Not to add insult to injury, but...when you research this field of knowledge, please begin by using the keyword "dinosaur," and not "dinorsars." Proper spelling does help! ;) ...Good Luck! :)

I know this was meant for Dkturner, but here's a link to an interesting article about the oldest human remains found in Ethiopia: nypost.com/p/news/international/item_KSVcJUoawxktxk6UzgGFtK

"Ardi," scientifically classified as Ardipithecus ramidus, lived 4.4 million years ago. That's a million years before "Lucy," also found in Africa, but of the more human-like genus Australopithecus.

This is noted in the scientific community, as one of the most important discoveries for the study of human evolution, because it "provides evidence that chimps and humans evolved from some long-ago common ancestor, but each evolved and changed separately along the way." That common ancestor is speculated to have lived 6 to 7 million years ago.

I think the key word here is "evolution," and in time, hopefully we will discover more and more about how we and all life has evolved. Whether we evolved from starfish, or one-celled organisms...it's quite possible that ultimately...we are related to all living things.

Dinosaurs still exist :
• Britneysaurus: Terrible meat eater. Very unpredictable. Natural predator.
• Bonderdocus: Very powerful dinosaur. Known to be quite aggressive. Very muscle bound.
• Bushteridoctyl: Flying dinosaur. Changes flight often. Will not back down from a fight even if it means certain death.
• Stewardopolis: Domestic dinosaur. Vegetarian. Very erect stance with huge lips.
• Obamasaur: Compromising dinosaur. Does not attack unless provoked. Powerful scream can be heard from miles around.
• Cheneyarus: Most vicious of all meat eaters. Goes for the throat. Easily provoked. Beware of his tongue-lashing.
• Pacmanotops: Tough, natural troublemaker. Carnivore that loves to devour smaller indefensible dinosaurs.
• Lohanosaur: Social dinosaur. Vegetarian and extremely friendly by nature. Tends to run into trouble when confronted by the meat eaters.
• Cruiserdocus: Daring dinosaur that fights all carnivores even under impossible conditions. Has three horns on the top of his skull.
• Rosieopulus: Big mouth dinosaur. Has over 2,000 teeth. Plant eater. Beware of her spiked tail in the back.

there arent human 'fossils' because it takes a very long process to fossilise, ie millions of years; basically proving that dinosaurs were around ages before people.

Are you talking about the Paluxy River fossils? Those "human" footprints have been proven to be faked. Read the wikipedia article entitled "Paluxy River" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paluxy_River) and check out the citations provided. That hoax was discounted decades ago. This site also has great information: http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/paluxy.html.

I strongly recommend you to read up on it - and if you were referring to a different instance, I apologize. Please cite your source, and I will address it accordingly.
