Evolved into more intelligence dino's?
Evolved into more intelligence dino's?
Yes, but they didn't.
Could they have evolved into a human-like intelligence
Is it true there were some dino's that were about to enter the path to intelligence right before they got hit with that asteroid?
No, dinos weren't human. Could they have continued to evolve as dinosaurs if they weren't killed off? Probably.
I mean could they have possibly possesed human-like intelligence?
Define intelligence P.R. What are you looking for? Reptilian intelligence? .. Watch Sliders. That fiction has as much speculation as you'd get here .. probably more. Reptiles are cold-blooded and inferior to mammals IMO.Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
Edited to add: My zoological wife said dinos weren't reptiles so .. bottom line: #-o .. don't listen to moi when it comes to Dino :wink:
Why the need to attack me?
It's conceivable, but evolution is blind. A very smart animal is not necessarily "on the path" to human-like intelligence. Chimps, for example, have the most human-like intelligence of any non-human animal, but that doesn't mean they're in the process of turning into humans.Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
Thats true, but theres a possibility, although not a probability?
If we (humans) were to go instinct, who would have the best chance of taking our place as become an intelligent species/sentient beings?
Who's attacking you? :roll:Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
It's awfully hard to justify a judgement of "inferiority" in evolutionary terms. As I just said, evolution is blind. I'll grant you, though, that the human brain is an energy hog that requires constant fuel, which may not be very compatible with the eating habits of most cold-blooded animals.Originally Posted by Archer17
Did you ever tell the fine BABBers why you ask about universes/dimensions and such P.R. ad nauseum? If I wanted to attack you, I'd tell them why you do .. I know.
One of the apes, perhaps, but quite possibly nothing. Life existed on Earth for a long, long time without human-like intelligence appearing. The dinosaurs got along without it for far longer than we've been around. So there doesn't really seem to be a need for human-like intelligence to exist at all.Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
Edited to add a word.
Who are you Mrs. Cleo all of a sudden?, I dont really care what you do in fact I encourage you to tell all these fine people why I ask and speculate about those stuff to a nauseating degree...lol @ you threatening meOriginally Posted by Archer17
W.F. Tomba, are we "one" of the apes? and dont you think that once a specie has gotten a foothold on intelligence that it will become more and more intelligent?
One word: reincarnation heh, I'm "threatening" you now P.R.? Yeah right. :roll: Some people have memories.. it's in your posting resume for those that don't. Spare me the accusations - you took this there P.R., not me .. I'm looking forward to your next question myself. :wink:Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
I dont believe in reincarnation anymore, I looked deeper into and found it not believable
Edit: you act like the belief in reincarnation is some kind of disease that people should be ashamed about and hide it, you deserve a little smack in the forehead for that
Whatever - Your accusations are baseless .. don't ask questions if you are too thin-skined to accept the answers, capice?Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
I forget whether taxonomists include humans in the group of apes, but as far as I'm concerned we are. As for the second question, no. What I mean by "evolution is blind" is that species don't evolve on purpose or toward a goal; it's just something that happens to them. So a species could get right to the threshold of intelligence and then stop, or even become less intelligent.Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
Hmm...I see, so basically it could go either way.
I didn't say that. I'll be in Toronto in May so let me know if this isn't just more of your spiel. I'd love to see you smack me.Originally Posted by Platinum Rhymer
