Did dinosaurs eat humans?
I was watching Jurassic Park last night and was wondering if Dinosaurs actually attacked and ate humans like it is portrayed in the movie? and if that is the case is that why humans did not evolve during that period because the dinosaurs ate all the humans?
No, those were extinct for 65.6 million (one million is one followed by 6 zeroes) years. Even by the broadest definition, primitive humans/cavemen have lived for only 3 million. The absolute oldest even distinct ape-men could be is about 7 million years before present.
Absolutely. The Jurassic Park movies are documentaries.

Dinosaurs became extinct because they exhausted themselves searching for humans that wouldn't appear on earth for another 66 million years.

Birds which eat carrion eat human bodies given the chance. Further back in prehistory, giant predatory birds would've eaten our ancestors sometimes, and before the K-T event they would have eaten early eutherians, so kind of, but non-avian dinosaurs and hominins were never contemporary.

There were no humans when dinosaurs lived. They went extinct 65 million years ago. But humans didn't evolve til about 3 or 4 million years ago.
Dinosaurs did eat small rodent like creatures that were the only mammals around at the time. So they kept small mammals from evolving into larger species and into primates. When the dinosaurs were gone, mammals took over the earth.

At the time humans did not exist (homosapiens) our ancestors only date back to around 6 million years ago so there is no factual evidence to say humans existed alongside dinosaurs. However, if dinosaurs existed today I could only assume we would be eaten like in Jurassic Park :)

Humans were thought to have eventually evolved from a small Burrowing Animal at the time that was warm Blooded
They survived the Onslaught being away from the main Carnage to Evolve into Apes then us
Jurrasic Park IS Science Fiction
Or is it ??

Humans were not around but a lung air breathing small warm blooded predicessor was probably around I saw a good show in evolution where we were probably a creature that stayed in caves and survived the disaster of the asteroid hit because being small meant able to be in small crevasses and we are little
Eventually that creature evolved into something more looking like a primate then us

Absolutely! The Bible describes massive, reptilian creatures called "Behemoths" that roamed the land, eating all in their path! Creation Scientists believe it is the bones of these creatures, most of whom died in the Great Flood, that secularists call "dinosaur fossils."
The reason humans are still around is because only one behemoth is believed to have survived the Flood.

And sometimes they still do. Komono dragons and alligator, etc. are dinosaurs.
