My brother, Jonathan, knew that I was going to die. "How can things be so terrible," I asked. "That some people have to die, when they're not even ten years old?" "I don't think it's that terrible," said Jonathan. "I think you'll have a marvellous time." A tender story of courage, love, and life after death.
The Age of Dinosaurs began about 250 million years ago. In the beginning they were quite small but over time they evolved into the varied and fascinating creatures that captivate our imaginations today. What we know about dinosaurs is evolving, too! We've learned that some dinosaurs were good parents, that dinosaurs could grow new teeth when old ones fell out and that most dinosaurs walked on two legs. We've even discovered that birds are modern relatives of dinosaurs!
Dinosaurs have arguably occupied a key slot in the imagination of millions of people since the dawn of modern archaeology. Museums, television shows, documentaries, fantasy art, fiction and science fiction genre have all been utilized to express this intense desire to see, to hear, to be frightened by, and to be fascinated by these "terrible lizards." However, dinosaurs are almost universally depicted as nearly mindless, lumbering gargantuans. Consider this: The human race has existed for perhaps 5 to 10 millions years in various final evolutionary stages of sentient emergence from the animal state. Compare this to the age of reptiles which is considered to span most of the Mesozoic era, an epoch that lasted at least 180 million years, more than ten times as long as the reign of modern man. In the long, long history of dinosaurs, would it not have been possible for just one species to have ascended into a sentient state, following...no, preceding the evolutionary path of the human race? A path that ended the reign of the dinosaur in a cataclysmic celestial event that extinguished these amazing animals. Or did it?
