dolphins have a advanced "sonar". when they look at us with this ability, our skeletal structure looks similar to them in some ways.
the reason dolphins help drowning humans, is because dolphins also come to the aid of other injured dolphins that cant swim
and keep them at the surface so they dont drown and our drowning look similar to a struggling dolphin!
on a side note: they especially like pregnant women because they can "see" the baby and they can also use sonar to see
things like cancers!

It is echolocation not sonar, there is a difference. You are also using the term dolphin like there is only one, and treating 40 different species as such. Dolphins are not very altruistic towards
dolphins species, especially bottlenoses and killer whale, both of which have attacked other species for "fun" and killer whales predate on other dolphin species. There is no evidence of dolphins
seeing cancer and pregnant women are a much higher risk group for be attacked by dolphins.

Are killer whales and dolphins in the same family?

I still think that dolphins intelligence is exagerated, i mean i've seen a monkey ride a bicycle, when was the last time you saw a dolphin do that?

Thanks to everyone on this thread who posted and felt the nerve to humiliate me in public. Just for giving out my opinions and beliefs on dolphines. Therefore, I've decided to delete my post about my beliefs and opinions on dolphines. I'll no longer be replying to this thread ever again.

Here's my opinion on this subject:

I believe that Dolphines did come from atlantis at one point in time. But I don't believe they are humans. However, I do believe that at one point in time. They were friends with the atlantis humans. And I believe they still are friends with humans today.


ERM...ok dear.
Atlantis was a mythical city on land, that was swallowed by the sea as punishment by the greek gods, so at what point did the humans evolve into dolphins....shortly before they drowned presumably  huh.gif

Well, in fact some investigation was made.
Scientists compared brain of human to the dolphin's one. The structure is similar. Human's brain's weight is approximately 1400 g and the dolphins' brain's weight is 1400 g. However - the proportion between the cerebellum and brain's hemispheres is like 1/6,7 in human's brain and 1/6,5 in dolphin's brain. The brain cortex is also more complicated in dolphin's brains. Density of neurons is almost the same!!
Computer simulations show that human race after living in water for a few million years would evaluate and looked very similar to dolphins. Our legs would connect and our skull would evaluate making the nose part larger, our eyes going aside and our forehead going back. The simulation also showed that only human race could evaluate into the race similar to dolphins.

Best Regards


I am sure you mean "evolve" not "evaluate", but at anyrate coevolution is a documented phoneomena. If humans decided to move to the seas then perhaps we may end up looking like dolphins after a few million years. But that doesnt mean they evolved from us. Bats can fly, it doesnt mean they evolved from hairy birds or vice versa. Dolphins are smart. Theres no doubt about that. But they evolved from early cows, not us hairless apes.

I dunno...It could be just me. I tend to be skeptical when it comes to theories that are based on what sounds good rather than actual evidence.
