Over 40% Of Americans Believe Humans And Dinosaurs Lived On Earth At The Same Time
With Jurassic World doing amazingly at the box office, it's pretty clear America has dinosaur fever once again. It's also pretty clear that a world with humans and dinosaurs would be a dangerous one. Lucky for us, that has never happened, and never will. According to a new survey though, Americans believe that dinosaurs and humans walked Earth at the same time.
YouGov's latest research poll shows that 41% of Americans think that dinosaurs and humans either 'definitely' (14%) or 'probably' (27%) once lived on the planet at the same time.
In reality, the earliest ancestors of humans have only been on the planet for 6 million years, while the last dinosaurs died out about 65 million years ago. There would be no way what so ever that dinosaurs and humans walked on Earth at the same time.
When asked about the science that provides the fictional basis for the Jurassic Park movies, most Americans (54%) say that it is not currently possible to create dinosaur clones from DNA found in fossils while 28% believe that it is currently possible. Half the public also say that if there were a theme park like Jurassic Park, they would not go to visit while 40% say that they would. "
If a Jurassic Park/Jurassic World really existed, I would visit! Wouldn't you?
