did neither of you read my post?  I outlined...in great detail...what "reptile brain" means and that we have no biological link to dinosaurs!

Sheesh.  It was only three posts ago.

When speaking upon a "scientific" concept- one must always checkt to make sure they understand the terminology being used.

As GWH pointed out, the "reptillian" brain is only a term used to describe the sort of thought processes that occur at the very basic level of thought.  Reptiles run pretty much solely on need- need for heat, need for food, need for making more little reptiles.

It refers the raw instinct we feel at times.  It does NOT refer to any genetic or biological connection to reptiles.

Dinosaurs were not reptiles as evidence now points out.  Findings have pointed to the very strong connection that dinosaurs were actually avian in nature.

"Common Ancestry" is not evidence that humans evolved from reptiles.  It simply states that when one goes back to the very beginning, everything came from the same type of single cell organism.  From there evolution then branched off.

As for this just being a theory... may I suggest you actually do some more research into such topics before proposing any other far-fetched theories.  After all, theories must have some claim to plausibility, in addition to justifying evidence to support such a theory.

Simply seeing a phrase without looking deeper into the context and substance behind it does not make a theory valid for discussion.

What would Lacerta, the subterranean reptiloid woman say?
I suppose common ancestry supports the idea.


She's say it's a (ohmy.gif you can't say that on a family forum!) crazy idea, too. And then she'd catch a fly with her tongue. yes.gif


Nothing to see here.

i never said we evolved from dinos only that both have a common ancestor, one went the way of giant creatures the other, much later in time when the big beasties were gone became us and every other mammal we see today.

I look at the world and see it needs to be conquered...

good point thumbsup.gif aside from common ancestor' there is nothing to back your theory up.


Oh really? Scientists have found fossils of the predecessors of mammals, and the fossils of small mammals that existed in the middle Triassic period. See for yourself, here.

To the best of my knowledge, mammals didn't evolve from dinosaurs, but rather evolved at the same time (certainly there were mammals around in the cretacious period...perhaps in the jurrassic also, but I doubt as early as the triassic). It just happens that, as dinosaurs evolved in one direction, other groups of creatures evolved in another. Although it wasn't until the dinosaurs were out of the way that there were any mammals around larger than a mouse tongue.gif

That's exactly what I was saying, as well.

Women perhaps, but not men. Women are cold-blooded and vicious on occasion. Trust me, I know...

But seriously, I don't think so. But who knows what lies in our DNA? Dorment DNA could be reptilian.

The parts which arent liable to be falsified by data.
The parts which cannot be tested by observation and experiment.
Try and give me few examples im sure you can do it.

Wait how about "The origin of species".

Dinosaurs were far to intelligent to evolve into a dumb creature like a human ..... unsure.gif

But I do rather rather suspect that some of them evolved into my Christmas Dinner  tongue.gif  grin2.gif
