No, Man did not co-exist with dinosaurs, that concept was created by Fundamentalist Christians to back up their claims of a young earth.
Well i am not a fundamentalist Christian but am still considering the possibility of it being true.

Lol. We are talking about an awful lot of time here. Either all life in the here and now existed with the Dinosaur in some form, or there is a new life generator somewhere. I heard yesterday that a new virus had emerged. I'm not sure if that is supposed to mean it spontaneously started to exist or not. No not a humour, because it sure happened at some time in the past. Proof that it is not impossible.  

I might be mistaken, but I think the fundamental Christian preaching in some quarters is more profound than suggested, I.e. That the merry ground is as young as Abraham, or thereabouts. A few thousand years. This thinking does not seem to cause them any problems, but is more obviously disputable

An asteroid/meteorite impact will leave proofs there is no denying that but that event leading to extinction of all dinosaurs is an unverifiable statement and hence not a part of empirical science.In short it is an unverifiable assumption.

That still does not make it pseudoscience.

Considering the timing in between the two, it's still impossible though.

Wow, Harsh86_Patel, you're still here? Hmm...

Try to realize it's all within yourself / No-one else can make you change / And to see you're really only very small / And life flows on within you and without you. / We were talking about the love that's gone so cold and the people / Who gain the world and lose their soul / They don't know they can't see are you one of them? / When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind / Is waiting there / And the time will come / when you see we're all one and life flows on within you and without you. ~ George Harrison

yes, but a very different kind of man and a very different kind of Dinosaur, in fact so different that the "man" of the Dinotime walked on all four, was two inches long and mostly hid underground until nightfall.

Actually the mammals ruled the earth before dinosaurs and the dinor ancestors looked like 2 inch mini t rexes. Then most everything got extincted in a time of severe drought and that began the dinosaur age.

There were no mammals on earth before the dinosaurs. While there were therapsids they were not, by definition, mammals.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Therapsids, being what they are, mammal-like reptiles, I can see where the confusion comes from though.

The truth is, there's simply no evidence for mammals before the dinosaurs, but that doesn't mean they weren't there.

The mammal-like" reptiles were more mammal-like than reptile-like, IIRC.

You're right, they had more mammal-like caracteristics than reptile-like ones. This being said, it's still impossible for man and dinosaur to have coexisted.

Not so sure about that, considering we wouldn't be on top of the food chain any more. I'm fairly sure I would not appreciate becoming a dino snack LOL

There are dinosaurs alive today, we co-exist now.

Whether we did millions of years ago? We probably did, or our great ancestors did.

No evidence has ever been found suggesting humans and dinosaurs co-existed. Dino and human bones have never been found in the same strata, or were dated to the same period. A belief in this is unfounded on any evidence at all and is more 'wishful thinking' in my opinion.
