We know. Dinosaurs included predators, meat eaters the evidence in their teeth. In order to hunt prey, you need to plan, seek and hunt. This requires intelect. With no intelect you may well hunt the fittest or biggest, rather than the young or weak thus conserving energy. This may be learnt, but to learn you need intelect.


okay, then give me the answer


I don't think there would have been time for one to evolve before ours. And they would have left traces — possibly not obvious ones, but we'd have found them.

What the article is saying, I think, is what would those traces be & how would we spot them. They may be scant & rare, but knowing what to look for is key, IF there is anything to find.


My question to this would be, who cares? Not totally true. I love knowing stuff. But whether or not, I would live my life the same way.


Rock layer evidence, Fossil record, Dna...the usual lines of evidence that are the foundation of evolutionary model.
