Do intelligent dinosaurs really rule alien worlds? A press release earlier this week from the American Chemical Society, suggests the existence of alien worlds with super-intelligent dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs once ruled the Earth and it is possible that similar creatures may have evolved on another exoplanet – that did not get smacked by an asteroid (that hit the coast of Mexico 65 million years ago) – and they developed to have human-like intelligence and technologies.
Ronald Breslow suggests that life-forms based on slightly different amino acids could take the form of dinosaurs.
‘Such life forms could well be advanced versions of dinosaurs, if mammals did not have the good fortune to have the dinosaurs wiped out by an asteroid collision, as on Earth.
‘We would be better off not meeting them.’
