Hi all, what if the dinosaurs had not been wiped out? What would have been the implications for human development and the earth in general?

It is a popular misconception that all the dinosaurs were wiped out at the KT boundary. Some of the Therepods survived and evolved into the modern birds.

Perhaps if the dinosaurs had not been so badly effected by the mass extinction, there might be more avian variation.
