I haven't read through the entire 11 pages of this thread, so I apologize if this has already been brought up, but... why would these dinosaurs
evolve into a humanoid shape? (I'm going off of the image here) Why would they choose a breeding partner with stubby legs and gimped claws that would
effectively make it harder for their offspring to hunt?
In my mind, if these dinosaurs were to evolve into a sentient species, they would keep their general shape but obtain bigger brains and stronger
arms/more nimble fingers to craft things with.
As for there having been an advanced, space-faring dinosaur species on our Earth - the idea sounds fun, but wouldn't we find relics? If they were
truly advanced, they would probably have populated the entire planet, like us, so a meteor wouldn't have destroyed every single city. And surely,
there would be graveyards with thousands of their bodies being excavated? If they were fleeing from some catastrophic event, I doubt they would have
time to bring all their dead with them.
Also, wouldn't there be ancient satellites orbiting our planet? I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure our early forays into space left a lot of
junk circling the Earth. Although, I suppose you could say that they would crash back down after a few hundred/thousands/millions/etc. of years.
