Say the Dinosaurs never went extinct, and they were all just as prominent in 2019 as they all were in their prime, do you think we could have found a way to co-exist?

You mean like sit down and reason with them?

Not really a history topic.

Well, not sit down and reason with them, but just having humans advance to what we are now even with lots of Dinosaurs around.

No, I do not think we could co-exist.

They would destroy our buildings, our modes of transportation and us without even meaning to.

I think we would have to live completely underground to co-exist with them. LOL

Mammals and dinosaurs appeared around the same time about 250 million yrs ago. During the entire reign of the dinosaurs, mammals stayed small. I wasnt until after dinos were extinct that mammalian megafauna appeared. I dont think this was a coincidence, so great apes probably never exist if dinos dont go extinct.

True but perhaps it would be more plausible if say the dinosaurs survived on one continent/island.

The dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago, primates appeared about 50-55 million years ago, great apes appeared about 12.5 million years ago, and the homo genus appearing about 2.5 million years ago.

Now what if the dinosaurs managed to survive on a continent/island such as India which connected with Asia around 50-55 million years ago or South America which connected with North America 2.7 million years ago.

Perhaps the Dinosaurs were only restricted to the Americas since Beringia would probably be to cold for them to cross over, would the Native Americans have been able to settle the land, or would the dinosaurs also get wiped like all the other Pleistocene mega fauna?

Just how tough were Dinosaurs? Could a single AK-47 shooting at say a T-Rex be enough to take one down? Especially if say you were shooting it's eyes?

Also, doesn't anyone else think it's kind of sad? Dinosaurs are very majestic, far more majetic than humans yet went extinct?

The only mammals that could survive when the dinosaurs were still dominate, were small ones, that burrowed in the ground or lived in trees.

No. Radiation fallout would turn them into rampaging, fire-breathing killers.

Dinosaurs didnít go extinct. They are all around us. Itís just that we call them birds now. We have definitely found a way of co-existing, but the dinosaurs have gotten the short end of the stick. In most cases at least.

The therapod dinosaurs had three toes, hollow bones, feathers and even flew ó just like many birds today who are their descendants.

Take a look at: How dinosaurs shrank and became birds.
