im currently doing some googling to see if i can find some answers. so far just a couple pages referencing the bible, and something about carbon dating being wrong, or slightly off. just wanted to make a thread for anyone who could readily show me in the direction either for or against it. thanks

i dont rule out that it could be impossible. maybe they did, and maybe they were physically more capable of doing such, but i dont know, im no super scientist. other than the fact that i know that we dont have all the answers, and maybe what we think is truth, is not complete, or a bit off, i cant say much more.

the question is, if we found evidence that humans and dinosaurs coexisted, would it be brought to light? i would hope so. they would have to rewrite alot of books though. ha ha

that would have to have been like a super human to survive though. if such a person existed, it sure got lost along the road when it comes to us, but whatever. what we have lost in brute force and physical ability, we have gained in intelligence, which still gives us the chance to be physically superior, and intellectually superior. just ranting. okay, bye.

I think you might like to edit your thread title while you still have time.

Otherwise yes I believe humans did coexist with humans

Well, you do have that famous human footprint beside a dinosaur footprint in fossil form that sparked alot of discussion on the subject. I don't know if it was true or not.

I think that it's possible that there were humans around when Dinosaurs roamed the Earth, maybe the large variety whose 28-33 ft skeletons have been found.
Furthermore, I think that some species lived on until more recent times,
which may explain one of the entries in the Anglo Saxon Chronicles.
I read this account last year, it was not included in my copy, but was posted on the internet and described a group of men fighting a large ferocious beast which, if I remember correctly, picked up and ate one of the men whole.
There are some very interesting entries in the Anglo Saxon Chronicles,
well worth a read.

Horsegiver.

I see absolutely no reason that a species or small group of Dinosaur could not have survived the extinction along with Alligators and Turtles... I do believe we have lived with certain species even up until this day that would qualify as prehistoric.

I don't believe that we lived in tribes surrounded by dinosaurs, though. Humans could never survive an environment with those kind of predators... but I do believe that modern man has shared this planet with Dinosaurs - even today. We call them sea monsters etc.

There is also this account of Behemoth I was inspired to share after viewing this thread.

I think you are talking about Mokele-mbembe from wiki below.


Mokèlé-mbèmbé is the name given to a large creature reported to live in the lakes and swamps of the Congo River basin. The term "Mokèlé-mbèmbé" comes from the Lingala language, and can be roughly translated as “one who stops the flow of rivers.” (Clark, 261)

The creature's very existence and identification have long been debated between mainstream scientists, local Pygmies, creationists and cryptozoologists. It has been suggested that the creature could possibly be a relict sauropod which survived extinction. Although this theory has received minimal attention or support from scientists, the living dinosaur theory is highly popular among enthusiasts. Although science would say that Mokele-Mbembe can be best described as a fraud supported by myth and misidentification of other animals, Mokele-Mbembe is one of the most famous cryptozoological mysteries, along with Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness Monster.

en.wikipedia.org...

But then again that's just wiki.

Interesting I had not heard of a man with an audio recording before, I don't suppose it is on the web anywhere, is it ?

Check this site. Has allot of good proof that humans and dinos did co-exit.
www.s8int.com...
Thats OOPARTS. out of place artifacts.

Heres a poster I made with some out of place artifacts; showing men
and dinos.


There is only one image here that probably is fake. The black and white
drawing of natives dancing around the dino. The picture in the middle, of course is a artist conception of what all the artifact evidence means. Men and dinos coexisted, without a doubt, it is a fact of known history.
It just doesn't fit the Darwinist, uniformitarian, paragrim. So the evidence is hidden, and ignored. The mainstream (system), has their agenda. Which
doesn't include the truth, or reality!

The only dino's we've co-existed with are crocs and other reptiles. I hear crocodiles and alligators haven't evolved much in the past few million years, compared with humans that have only been around for 100,000-200,000 years.

i dont believe that to be true. hypothetically speaking, i would assume the humans would be nothing like us, and comparing them to us would be wrong in my personal opinion. i would think they would be taller, with denser muscles, stronger bones, more advanced 5 senses, maybe faster contracting muscles to increase speed and reaction, etc...

if humans did exist alongside dinos, then they would essentially have to have been the top class of warriors we could only fathom in comics. but scientifically speaking, i dont believe it to be that outrageous to think that some type of "superhumans" could have existed alongside dinos.

but thats just my opinion. im just giving a hypothetical outlook on what could have been

Yes thank you, and excellent post. I didn't want to take this thread off-topic because Mokele is a specific cryptid with ALOT to discuss.

I am endlessly frustrated that I cannot find mention of the man or his audio tape - all I have is the memory of his story and having heard the tape myself, so I made a new thread for that.

There's no doubt about it: we WERE superhuman to survive through pre-history. We did have hyper-senses and we were extremely strong, and fast, and we had endless endurance. We also died before we were 25 (usually).

Even still, the strongest and most agile warrior could never have evaded or killed a pack of raptors. It's just that simple. Still, I believe species survived extinction and we ran into them frequently. To kill one, or to be a 'dragonslayer' would put you in epic social status. And frankly, I believe such men existed.

I have added a few of my favorite pictures of artifacts.


There are actually thousands hidden away in museums around the world.
And of course we all know about man's history of living with dragons.
Dragon was just what they called Dino's. Before they were named "terrible
lizards", in the 18 th century.
Just because men embellished their stories. of their encounters with
Dino's. Doesn't mean they didn't happen. Every ancient culture, that left a history. Left a history of encountering living dinosaurs.

Those skeletons were part of a viral campaign for Shadow of the Colossus, if we are thinking of the same ones.
Theres a mention of the viral campaign in here:

Dinosaurs coexisting with humans is impossible. So is a global flood. It didn't happen. Anyone telling you otherwise is feeding you propaganda because they want you to give them your money.

There are passages in The Bible that can be loosely *emphasis* interpreted as dinosaurs. Bible thumpers enjoy trying to make that assertion because people often question the validity of The Bible based on the fact it doesn't talk about dinosaurs in a forthright manner... since dinosaurs are obviously a BIG part of Earths history hehe. People say, we discovered all these dinosaur bones, they existed, so why doesn't the God-inspired Bible talk about them?

Sorry if that was OT, but that's really the only thing I could offer as far as humans coexisting with the dinos.

Well actually, not too long ago a prehistoric deep sea shark was video taped and shortly died thereafter. I personally think there is probably many prehistoric "dinosaurs" in the ocean still.

It's still possible that we will find creatures in the ocean that were thought extinct, and there is some possibility that other fauna that was thought to be extinct could be found on land, but at the same time I think folks would notice a dinosaur peeking around, not just a few odd sightings of something that could possibly be a dinosaur.
Keep in mind how many different species of whales are on the endangered species list, and yet how frequently people come in contact with them. Some are barely within survivable population numbers. Ancient marine reptiles were well adapted to the ocean, but they still needed to come to the surface to breathe. The coelocanth was hidden for so long because of it's deep water and small habitat.

Quite possible

This dinosaur drumstick is really yummy

Did humans coexist with dinosaurs? In a sense they did, and still do.

Here is what a modern dinosaur looks like:


So this, I'm afraid, is incorrect:

Reptiles are an older class, from which dinosaurs evolved, and from them birds. Crocodiles and other sauropsids are also descended from early reptiles, but along a different line.

No-one has addressed this yet...

...so allow me. The probable reference is to the fossil prints at Paluxy in Texas. I first learnt about these as a teenager when I was dabbling in something called Youth for Christ. One of the other members lent me a book about it; I fail to recall the title but I found it very convincing at the time. Still, I wasn't entirely convinced. And I was right to be sceptical: the Paluxy 'evidence' was soon discredited. You can read about it, and other equally shaky creationist claims of evidence for human/dinosaur coexistence, at this site. Here's an excerpt:


A few individuals continue to promote the Paluxy "man tracks" or alleged human tracks in pre-Tertiary rocks from other localities, but such claims are not considered credible by either mainstream scientists or major creationist groups.

In fact, this is what one of those creationist groups has to say about Paluxy:


None of the four trails at the Taylor site (Paluxy) can today be regarded as unquestionably of human origin. The Taylor Trail appears, obviously, dinosaurian, as do two prints thought to be in the Turnage Trail. The Giant Trail has what appears to be dinosaur prints leading toward it, and some of the Ryals tracks seem to be developing claw features, also.

Pace the wonderful exhibits at the Institute for Creation Research, there is, today, not one iota of scientifically admissible evidence to prove that dinosaurs and human beings ever crossed each others' paths.

More than this, it is clear to any scientifically literate person that such evidence can never be forthcoming. We know more than enough about the history of Earth and life on it to be able to say with confidence that humans and 'real' dinosaurs (not chickens) can never have coexisted. Any claim that they did can confidently be disregarded as false.

The Coelocanth is not a dinosaur.

We already co-exist with Dinosaurs. Children at a 4th grade education level in Science already know this.

A global flood is not impossible. Especially during a global pole shifts. In fact, there are situations like a pole shift, or the passing of a nearby planet (Planet X situation) where it would be impossible not to have a global flood.
