Dont know if i have put this in the correct forum, so mods please feel free to move if needed.
This thread is based purely on my own ideas, the ideas put forward are simply that, ideas.
I have no scientific or archealogical training so please bear with me. I would like anyone elses thoughts or ideas regarding the subject matter below,
so here goes.
I dont believe the dinosaurs were wiped out by an asteroid or a disease, and i dont believe we evolved from monkeys either and heres why.
IF the Earth was struck by an asteroid millions of years ago that caused the sun to be blocked and cause another ice age, why are there still plants
that existed in the cretacious period? surely they would have been destroyed as well, plants need sunlight for photo synthesis in order to thrive.
Also there are very few fossils left on Earth to support the vast array of prehistoric life that are supposed to have been eradicated during this
Now i know that not all dinosaurs would have become fossils upon their demise, but the few (on a global scale) that have been uncovered, in my mind
indicate another fate for our scaly ancestors. I honestly believe that they evolved and left the planet in search of a new home / in the spirit of
exploration / or to conquer other worlds. And IF my idea is correct, is it so hard to imagine that our ancient lizard chums have infact now become the
reptillian species that we hear so much about? Maybe the majority of the species left in whatever craft they built and a few remained, what if the few
that remained split into two factions / societies and had a war for dominance of our little blue gem? The few fossils that remain, in my mind, points
to an already reduced population on the planet BEFORE any extinction level event, natural or dino-made.
Maybe we ARE the product of this highly evolved form of reptillian life, maybe they needed some mineral or other metal, perhaps gold, in order to
produce their ships or run their technology and in order to do this they created us as a slave workforce in order to mine the tight spaces beneath the
earth. This is just my opinion, my idea or theory if you will. After all the modern consensus of opinion regarding the dinosaurs is also just a
theory, its just one that has been accepted as the norm for so very long.
Onto my second point, i dont believe we evolved from monkeys for one simple reason. We still have monkeys on Earth to this day. If a species evolves
from another species, then surely the original species, in this case the monkeys, would evolve out of existance. Why would only half (for arguments
sake) of the monkey population evolve into modern man while the other half remained just hanging out in trees?
I welcome your thoughts and ideas on this one fellow members of ATS, and i thnkyou all in advance for your input.
