Is it really that hard to imagin that one or two species evolved into a intelligent creature?
not to hard no....
One that exsist even today?
no again, the possibility that primative life survived extinction is a farely well known fact, look at the coelacanth. also consider that millions of
creatures continued to exist in a fairly un changed state, the crocodile, the shark, coral....
Would it be so hard to imagin that they would have a minimum of a 67 million year "jump" on us in technology?
ah. see thats where you just went mad and shot your self in the foot with a ridiculous supposition.
just because somthing has survived for 65 million years, and has indeed evolved over those millions of years does not mean that they have evolved into
an intelligent society such as our own, in fact the probability that they have is increadibly unlikely, again look at the coelacanth, the shark,
Its fairly well accepted that dinosaurs evolved into birds. and that some mammels evolved into primates which evolved into homanids.
we were able to evolve into "intelligent beings" because of several biological advantages reptiles lack. larger brains, warm blood, live young.
these factors all point towards the creation of social, working animals who exploit rather than adapt to their environment, necesity to do this leads
to language, opposable thumbs, tool use and eventually technology and society.
The reptile has none of these necessitys, they are anti social creatures who cannot escape their reliance on a surtable environment, with no
fundemental necessity to change it, or commune with other reptiles of the same species, there is no evolutionary impetus to evolve down the same
communal route as humans and as such the chances that they became anything other than slightly more efficient, smaller versions of what they once were
are massively improbable.
in fact scientifically one would call it a certainty.
