Why would it be impossible for time paradoxes to happen? It would becoming a fixed temporal loop, but so what? Time travellers eat all the dinosaurs because the know already most of the dinosaurs die out about the time they go back to eat them, little realising that their eating them is what caused the dinosaurs to die out at that time in the first place which led to them choosing that time to go back and eat dinosaurs. I don't understand why that would change our time line, if our time line is already contained within that temporal loop. How do you know it's not? It's another wonderfully non-falsifiable idea that deserves a healthy dose of fanatical support if you ask me. All the ideas that already have fanatical support are just as (un)likely as this, so let's jump on this bandwagon because at least this one is fun.

Once the Time traveling connoisseur(s) first go back and discover that Dinosaur meat is not only is the best tasting stuff around, it's also a powerful aphrodisiac, the door is wide open for profit and gain. So those guys have been seeding a market for probably thousands of years after TT is discovered. So...I'm betting yes...and they are stinking rich.

Yes that was an important part of the story. The tremendous profits to be made. tThe story was written before environmental concerns were all the rage but it seems to address our current regard for the ecology.

"A Sound Of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury was a pretty cool short story and the movie, although a little on the B side was not bad either.

I doubt profoundly that the people of the future would be so stupid as to squander the supply like that!

I do like the fact that this hypothesis explains the foot prints recently recovered of Dinos and Humans in the same strata , but why would the people from the future be barefoot?


Here is what I mean. You go back in time, Find a big plump Dino. Tag it and track it till it dies. You go back an hour before it dies, and haul it back.
You go back a couple of minutes before the last time and grab it before the time you already grabbed it, which already happened so cannot be undone. And on and on. You litterally turn one Dino into Billions of Hungry Man Dino Dinners!

There is never a need to extinct them.

yeah and that was a show on sci fi channel recently only they didn't eat the dinosaur they just hunted the same dinosaur over and over for profit. You saw it too, huh?
And why were they barefoot? Had to clean the dino dookie off their shoes. that's why they were on their way to the stream.

You know since I've been a member I've started a few threads that I felt were important and interesting but just didn't get the kind of response I'd hoped for. I was feeling kind of irritated about that and thought what does it take to get a thread noticed around here? And guess what I came up with?

To all of you who've taken the time to post on this thread.... thank you...and
'Made ya look!'

Sounds delicious, but no. You can only go back as far in time that--when--time machines were invented. Someone said that once. And I know for certain time machines werent invented until the 1900s.


you no for certain do you? rofl. do please tell me how you know this for certain?

No, I missed that one! But there is nothing new under the sun, and the variations are a limited domain. I am merely facile.

My question is based on a short story I read many years ago portraying an alternate explanation for the extinction of the dinosaur. Seems somebody invents a time machine, goes back to the time of the dinosaur, for some reason I don't remember ends up cooking and eating one and discovers that they are the single most delicious food ever known to man. The crack coc aine of food, if you will. Needless to say despite their better judgement future us end up eating all the dinosaurs.
They do say dinosaurs are related to birds so I figure they taste like chicken.


If they had developed the time machine and not had the sense to farm the dinosaurs, it is little surprise that there are none left now. Time machines are not everything. Crop circles and cycles count in too.

Hmm...facile, huh? Have you tried Viagra?

But seriously folks, it was a made for TV Sci Fi Channel movie on not too long ago and it was actually pretty good. When they go back in time to hunt the dinosaurs they inadvertantly bring back microsopic matter from the past and change the way things turned out in the present.

If Dino meat was sort after as u say. they could harvest it easily and rear 'cattle' non stop.

you go back in your time machine to the END of the Dino era. u start killing and harvesting from their backwards in time , killing every generation of dino's ther ever was.

when you get through with the whole of dino history and go to the beggining of the Dino era. u leave the first generation in tact and jump forward to the end .. rinse and repeat .
A never ending supply of tasty magic power giving dino burgers? ..or the end of the universe .... u decide?
