Dinosaurs weren't as stupid as people thought years ago.  They were just very specialized.  Many of them exhibited pack hunting (velociraptor) which is a very advanced behavior and takes alot of forethought and planning.

maybe, but they still never had a TV ;) which is much better :D
I know that some dinosaurs had "schools" they put their children in when they were hunting, some parents watched all the children while the others hunted, then they shared the food some, or took care of the parents who were watching the kids kids. but still the children never learned 1+1=2 which we humans do when we are very young, even before we speak :D

No one's arguing that dinosaurs were sentient, but they were actually very intelligent creatures (the Dromeosaurids anyway).

Intelligent -  Showing sound judgment and rationality

Sentient -  Having sense perception; conscious

Some dinosaurs sentient?  Unlikely (though certainly not impossible).

Some dinosaurs intelligent?  Yes.  Pack behavior implies the ability to work together as well as plan in the future.

Note that technology does not imply sentience, or vice versa.  Our ancestors were not less intelligent or less entient than we are today, even though we have better technology.  In fact, our ancestors existed for thousands of years at just about our intelligence level without anything but the most rudimentary technology.

So it is not impossible at all that some velociraptor cousin reached sentience at some point in time.  However, we have no proof that sentience insures survivability.  Intelligence costs alot of energy to maintain, so it is only evolutionarily advantageous to have it if it means you can find food easier.

So a sentient group of dinosaurs could have come and gone.

we humans have a brain in our butt. its alot of nervers around our tripa. which is bieng called a second brain, coz it work independed from the brain. scientist belive that the big brain, which we humans have and other animals, come from that brain. some nervers wonder from there to start a bigger brain. they belive this coz at every animal that part of the neural net is well developed, unlike the big brain

If this is what you're talking about, you better rethink your position.  Please don't post erroneous information :bash:

Our brain came to develop as a single conglomeration of nerve cells.  They most certainly did not first develop in the butt!

As for any brain like organ anywhere in a chordata's except its head, it's a lie!

whats most important? to get energy, or analyze tha data from primetive senses which gives only little information about the sourrunding? and I am not posting erroneous information. im just posting what ive read,  :angry: adn how can the brain have started evolve in the head, when tehre was no head to evolve in? first organism was primetive and had no head, like a starfish, it doesnt have a head, but still a brain :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

Hmm, thanks Nums for pointing out about the second brain myth.  I was not aware that it was disproved.

By the way, when looking up info on how brains work, I've stumbled upon an interesting page, which appears to be an answer sheet to some exam.  It has lots of fun info about brains: http://www-inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~cs182/a..._-_Solution.pdf

No games, having a brain's been a total disaster for all of us - would be much happier without it.  Let's just all submit our wills to the government!

As Nums said, there was no brain in the ass.  Just a bunch of nerves that happened to be bigger than real ping-pong-size brain.
