Did humans and dinosaurs ever coexist?
Most people believe that dinosaurs became extinct millions of years before there were any humans but there is some evidence that this belief is false.

Nearly all cultures have stories of dragons. The discriptions of these beasts resemble those of dinosaurs.
Quote:Evolutionist Adrienne Mayor spent considerable time researching the possibility that Native Americans dug up diniosaur fossils. But some of the reports she received make a lot more sense if these early Americans interacted with actual dinosaurs, not yet extinct. An old Assiniboine story tells of a war party that "traveled a long distance to unfamiliar lands and [saw] some large lizards. The warriors held a council and discussed what they knew about those strange creatures. They decided that those big lizards were bad medicine and should be left alone. However, one warrior who wanted more war honors said that he was not afraid of those animals and would kill one. He took his lance [a very old weapon used before horses] and charged one of the large lizard type animals and tried to kill it. But he had trouble sticking his lance in the creature's hide and during the battle he himself was killed and eaten." Mayor, Fossil Legends of the First Americans, 2005, p. 294.) This story conjures up credible visions of the scaly hide of a great reptile, something Native Americans would not know from mere skeletons. It was once thought that Woolly Mammoths had flourished in North America prior to the arrival of humans. But the discovery of sites where many mammoths were killed and butchered has established the co-existence of men and mammoths. Perhaps similar evidence involving dinosaurs will be forthcoming.

Quote:The atheistic astronomer Carl Sagan once remarked: "The pervasiveness of dragon myths in the folk legends of many cultures is probably no accident" (Sagan, Carl, The Dragons of Eden, New York: Random House, 1977, p. 149). Indeed he felt compelled to address the similarity to the great reptiles of the Jurassic era and "explain them away." How could Sagan do this? Peter Dickinson stated, "Carl Sagan tried to account for the spread and consistency of dragon legends by saying that they are fossil memories of the time of the dinosaurs, come down to us through a general mammalian memory inherited from the early mammals, our ancestors, who had to compete with the great predatory lizards." (Dickinson, Peter, The Flight of Dragons, New York: Harper and Row, 1979, p. 127). Thus Carl Sagan believed that we evolved not merely our physical bodies, but also memories "uploaded" from our mammalian ancestors!

There are also ancient pictures of animals that resemble dinosaurs. How could the people who made them have know what dinosaurs looked like unless they had actually seen them?

In fact it is possible that we still coexist and they haven't all died off:

If there are still dinosaurs this wouldn't be the first time a species believed to be extinct for millions of years has been found to be still alive:

His invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

It is acknowledged within the scientific community that not 100% of all dinosaurs were extinguished during the extinction event 65 million years ago. Many of them survive today, such as crocodiles, monitor lizards, and many birds.
What you won't find are creatures like the Apatosaur, Spinosaur, or Deinonychus romping around anymore. The oxygen content of the air has changed in the millions of years since that have disallowed certain animals from being functional parts of nature.
In that sense, we're living with dinosaurs now, but it's more likely than not that what you won't find is natives riding Deinonychus in the fossil record anytime soon.
If today you can take a thing like evolution and make it a crime to teach in the public schools, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools and next year you can make it a crime to teach it to the hustings or in the church. At the next session you may ban books and the newspapers...
Ignorance and fanaticism are ever busy and need feeding. Always feeding and gloating for more. Today it is the public school teachers; tomorrow the private. The next day the preachers and the lecturers, the magazines, the books, the newspapers. After a while, Your Honor, it is the setting of man against man and creed against creed until with flying banners and beating drums we are marching backward to the glorious ages of the sixteenth centry when bigots lighted fagots to burn the men who dared to bring any intelligence and enlightenment and culture to the human mind. ~Clarence Darrow, at the Scopes Monkey Trial, 1925

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. ~Ronald Reagan

Why is this topic in "Science and Math?" Shouldn't it be moved to a padded cell?
