Meh, if dolphins are able to intimidate sharks, then they must have anger issues. The only whale I think that decimate those two is the Orca and those are pretty smart as well.

Dolphins are popular to people due to them being able to interact with them, as well as being able to scare sharks. But them killing their own young kind of says something to me, and they might need a couple of more million years to evolve into an advanced society.

Considering since their nature is that of a jerk, and quite possibly could be more destructive then humanity once they grow thumbs.

Here is a little something I found interesting;




“The extent of the genetic similarity came as a real surprise to us,” says David Busbee of Texas A&M University. He hopes his research will reveal how long ago humans and dolphins branched off the evolutionary tree. There’s been some speculation that dolphins and whales, who breathe air, may have returned to the water AFTER first evolving into land animals

Wasn't there a Star Trek film along these lines?

If Dolphins where aliens, they wouldn't let us slaughter them, they would send their giant robophins with laser beams to destroy us.

Poor dolphins, if only they were as smart as an octopus

Thats something you can research yourself

I mean they are shown to be highly intelligent and we have yet to decipher their language, could it be they share an intelligence with E.T's we dont even know about yet?
www.dolphinfacts.org...

"" Extensive research, carried out on dolphins has indicated that bottlenose dolphins have the ability of self awareness, a trait considered being a sign of highly developed abstract thinking. This ability was discovered in dolphins when they were able to recognize themselves in front of a mirror. This behavior has been seen only in human beings and great apes. Dolphins also showed a lot of interest in television, unlike other animals, when they were exposed to images in the television. ""

Tsk tsk, they missed Elephants on that list:

And Magpies (crow family... birds!):
www.newscientist.com - Mirror test shows magpies aren't so bird-brained...

Someone isn't doing their homework.

Octopi may be very intelligent in areas that they need to be intelligent for their survival and prosperity, but that does not necessarily equate to an over all across-the-board intelligence. I think dolphins are still considered more intelligent than the octopus and other cephalopods "overall".

Some animals may be virtual "genius savants" in some areas, but not necessarily have a greater overall intelligence. For example, the octopus and other cephalopads seem to have superior spatial intelligence, but may still may not have a "more superior" overall intelligence than other animals who have a lesser spatial intelligence.

Having said that, even dolphins intelligence has certain aspects that are greater than others (such as social intelligence -- i.e., communication and socialization), but lacking in other aspects. The bottom line is that it is hard to rank the intelligence of one animal to the intelligence of another, because the aspects of intelligence we are comparing may be like comparing apples to oranges.

Your thread title is worded strangely. The way it is worded suggests that all aliens are dolphins. You should reverse those two words, "are dolphins aliens?" makes more sense. Also, the answer to that question is no. Dolphins are born all the time on this planet, we've witnessed it. Therefore they aren't aliens. Do you think that intelligence is some sort of special evolutionary trait or something?

Over the years of surfing the net reading about aliens I have come across some ideas that greys are somehow genetically connected to dolphins.

Haven't a clue where or when I came across this its just the title sparked the memory in my head of coming across this.


Another bit of evidence for dolphins being well not alien but like the reptilians many speak of that were here before us and moved into the caverns of the earth.

This evidence comes from a source that one can find evidence of other conspiracies such as 9/11. So it must be true, many ATS threads as well.

Its The Simpsons, tree-house of horror 11, where the dolphins take over Springfield and tell the people that they were forced into the sea by the humans and now they have come back to claim whats rightfully theirs or something along those lines.

Forget the Simpsons humor and this is actually an interesting topic to delve into about the intelligence possessed by these wonderful creatures and how we as humans can work out a dialog between us and eventually communicate with Dolphins.

And dolphins kill their own young for whatever reason.


And we don't? As nations, we like to kill the young of other nations but, as individuals, we do the same for "whatever reason".

From the outside looking in, our actions would make zero sense to an outsider. Maybe it's the same thing here.

Hey, Dolphins are said to be hyper advanced. Got problem, take it up with them. Unless you are scared to get pecked like a shark or their young.

Or even raped? Maybe you won't like dolphins anymore after an incident like that.

We are talking about amphibious mammals, not football.

Orcas(killer whales) play with the crushed corpse of sealion, and toss like it was football, but won't kill a single member of their. Now thats intelligent, ask it why it support violence.

And if dolphins went endangered cause they culled a bunch of their young for no reason?

Plus, football players aren't rapists, even if they smack each other behinds, and still don't consider themselves Gay. Yes, I made a pun about football player insecurities. They think it good luck, I think it just gay.

Are we talking about those dolphins?

In response to your post (and your avatar), here is a great scene quoted from "South Park":

Cartman: "Stop defending your little girlfriend for writing about some stupid fish!"
Stan: "Dude, dolphins are intelligent and friendly."
Cartman: "Intelligent and friendly on rye bread with some mayonnaise."

What's the difference?




Also, in football, they traditionally throw around a pig's corpse.
