Let's begin by gaining a basic understanding of the knowledge ancient peoples had about dinosaurs. There are examples from history from peoples from
all corners of the world in which intimate knowledge of dinosaurs can be found. Keep in mind the only reason that this is strange is because according

that date back much longer than that is immediately a major hurdle for evolutionary thinking.
No hurdle for evolutionary thinking at all.

Like modern Paleontologists, the ancient fossil hunters collected and measured impressive petrified remains and displayed them in temples and museums,
they attempted to reconstruct the appearance of these prehistoric creatures and to explain their extinction. Long thought to be fantasy, the
remarkably detailed and perceptive Greek and Roman accounts of giant bone finds were actually based on solid paleontological facts.
