Just thought I'd pose the question - would you rather allow the dinosaurs to survive on the island, free of the lysine-dependency but with the small chance of something getting off the island, or destory the island and kill all the dinosaurs, thus halting the evolution of a species wiped from the planet long ago but sending species extinct forever. Or would you take the dinosaurs off the island and onto the mainland?
It's your choice, but I have to say destroy the dinosaurs. They aren't on the planet anymore, and they aren't ready for our world. They are a different species, a whole new class of animals. How could we, seperated by them by millions of years of evolution, possibly know what to expect? One of many possiblities is that they could bring a new disease and change the planet. Or they could spread far more rapidly than even turtles. Not a clutch of 200 eggs - a clutch of, say, 1000. And those 1000 would lay 1000 more. 1000000 that fast. It just goes on...(sorry if I sound a bit paranoid, I'm very opinionated). The theroy is dinosaurs are like birds. But that's just a theroy. And anyway, I don't believe in most theroys - after all, they are just a guess. And who's to say the dinosaurs are what we guess them to be? (Naturally, I won't end up working as a scientist).
To sum it up, in the words of Jack Forman from Micheal Crichton's book Prey, "They didn't understand what they were doing.
I'm afraid that will be on the tombstone of the human race.
I hope it's not.
We might get lucky."
So what are your thoughs? Save or destroy?
Oh, and please don't start a really heated debate. This is just for fun. (Although I guess that I did make it seem really serious)
