I still remember my thoughts when I saw a timeline of life on Earth for the first time. Even as a child I said to myself, "how in the world have
humans been here for so short a time and have the ability to make machines and incredibly complex technologies such as mastering the atom and flying
to the moon?"
This line of thought really came to an explosion later in life in a University Neuroscience class on the evolution of the human brain, visual cortex
I put my hand up and asked the professor and class, "if humans just appeared on Earth a little sliver of time ago, why didnt the Dinosaurs, who lived
for like a hundred million years, why didnt they build skyscrapers and have cell phones?"
After a long pause the professor looked up at the class and answered, "who says they didn't?"
Needless to say this blew me away because he was 100% correct. How do we know what they did or had as a way of life on Earth? All we have are their
bones/fossils, which are now so old they are rocks, to formulate theories about them and what they accomplished.
When it comes right down to it, nothing they ever accomplished to give us a good reliable theory about them has survived the millions of years.
Is it possible that a comet will someday wipe us out and hundreds of millions of years from now some being digs up a human bone fossil and says, "oh
look, I found an old human arm fossil" and someone else responds, "ya those dumb things used to swing in trees and bark at each other. We think they
may have even been able to dig termites out of logs with their oppose-able thumbs"
They would have absolutely no clues or evidence that we went to Mars or had cities, cellphones or anything. All they would find are fossils of us
because everything else would be lost in time.
So reflect on that for a moment. Please do not flame me for suggesting Dinosaurs may have been more advanced than we are told because to simply accept
that train of thought would be ignorant to facts.
If it is true that they were like dumb idiot lizard type bird things with no technology then why are humans so special? What caused humans to have
these abilities so quickly? Intervention from other life forms? Creation by God type beings?
What are your thoughts on this subject?
