Did neanderthals and dinosaurs co-exist?
The non avian dinosaurs became extinct 65.5 million years ago, and the first primitive hominids (human like animals) evolved 3 million years ago. So humans didn't live at the same time as the non avian dinosaurs. However, scientists consider birds a group of dinosaurs, and thus we currently coexist with dinosaurs.
The non avian dinosaurs became extinct 65.5 million years ago. The earliest sirenians, (the order that includes manatees), didn't evolve until about 50 million years ago, 15 million years after the extinction of the non avian dinosaurs. However, scientists consider birds a group of dinosaurs, and, because birds still exist today, manatees do coexist with avian dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs became extinct sixty-five million (65,000,000) years before there was anything remotely resembling a human on the plains of Africa. Not all dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago. Some lines continued into semi-modern times and were scouted as the Anakims in the time of Joshua. So men did co-exist with the dinosaurs.
Cavemen didn't actually exist technically.... We know that the dinosaurs died out approximately 65 million years ago. On the other hand, the earliest hominins (our ancestors) only appeared about 7 million years ago. When people speak of 'cave men', they usually mean the Neanderthals - although all early humans lived in caves if they were available. The Neanderthals lived in Europe from about 200,000 years ago. So, cavemen certainly did not exist when dinosaurs did.
Dinosaurs were on earth a long time before neanderthal. Dinosaurs lived on earth from about 230 to 65 million years ago. Neanderthal features started to evolve around 650,000 years ago (over 64 million years after the extinction of the dinosaurs) and the 1st true neanderthals appeared about 130,000 years ago.
It's a question of chronology, time. Dinosaurs appeared long before humans. Then, due to a meteor strike the climate on earth changed and the dinosaurs died out. Long after that, humans appeared. If the meteor hadn't struck, dinosaurs would probably have lived on. Or maybe they'd still been beaten by the mammals, only slower. And maybe humans had never appeared. O maybe we had. No one can tell.
Not according to any mainstream theories or any commonly accepted evidence, at least as far as "classic" dinosaurs are concerned. Non-avian dinosaurs died out 65.5 million years ago while humans have evolved int the past two hundred thousand years. However it is no known that birds are the only surviving clade of dinosaurs. In the time of dinosaurs, there were some small, mainly nocturnal mammals around, but no humans. Members of our genus did not…
No. While the Bible mentions such beasts as "leviathans" and "behemoths" it is highly improbable that those were dinosaurs, because this directly violates strong scientific evidence that humans and dinosaurs live 65 million years apart. In fact, it would have been impossible for humans to arise without the dinosaurs becoming extinct first. Since dinosaurs dominated the Earth in the past, the mammals of the time were forced to remain small and insignificant, and only when…
