I think the T-Rex just go around and killing whatever it pleased. If it sees a group of raptors taking down and weakening a large herbivor it would just chase them away and take the food for itself.

If you could have either a T-Rex or a Velociraptor hunting you for an entire day, who would you rather have hunting you?

T-Rex, definitely. I may not be able to outrun it, but I could sure outsmart it.

Depending on terrain T-Rex, easier to hide from, but if its a wide open area I'll take my chances with the solitary raptor.

I don't. Despite being one of the world's leading experts on dinosuars, Jack Horner still sticks to that outdated idea that he was a scavenger. T-Rex was most likely an oportunistic hunter--like lions are hyenas. It would eat anything, dead or alive.

Horner thinks it was a scavenger because it had a great sense of smell. It's possible that this is what this was for, but it's also possible that it used its sense of smell to track living dinosaurs as well. It also had its eyes in the front of its head (binocular vision), which has no other purpose except hunting. There are also partially healed wounds of Tyrannosaur bites on other animals. So it would have definitely attacked others. Besides, it's jaws are probably the strongest ever.

That's a tough one. I think I would be less interesting to a T-Rex. He would look for bigger food. The Raptor might not care and just eat me.

We who? The oldest written material in the Old Testament (most likley recorded by Aaronoid priests and based largely around the oral traditions of southern Judah) are post-exilic constructions, and most current scholars date the Exodus to around the 15th century B.C. Occasionally you'll hear the Van Impe/Lahaye types who believe that every hunk of shale lodged in every remote middle-eastern cliff is actually a petrified chunk of Noah's ark, but that ain't archeaology--that's stand-up comedy.

Hell--no one was writing ANYTHING in 4000 B.C. Sumerians didn't start messing with cuneiform until nearly 1000 years later.

I meant to say that the books were written at a different time period, but what is written is about the time of 4000 B.C.

ok so basically what you're saying is: We're just all really really really smart dogs?

Umm--never mind.

What he meant to say was since all the water left the atmosphere in the great flood, there has been a gradual buildup in radiation causing exponential decay in the span of life a human can live. This would be reflected in the ages given in the Bible (originally starting around 900 years and shortening towards modern lengths of life). Increases in living conditions and modern medicince have (of cousre) increased the life span of a human. That's what he meant to say. He just wasn't able to say it.

(I'm not saying that that's true or if it has any crediblity, but I have heard that before)

you said humans were animals...i kinda group animals separately from humans. But it's all good, we both have different views on life. No worries
