What about Dinosaurs in the future?
In simplest possible terms... Weight is proportional to volume, a cubed figure, while strength is proportional to cross section of bones and muscles, basically a squared figure. Double your physical dimensions, and the factor of two gets cubed for volume and weight but only squared for cross section and strength; you'll have cut your power/weight ratio in half. That's why you don't get 200-lb gymnasts and why we no longer have sauropod dinosaurs. You can get a rough size limit for the planet by solving for the point at which one of your top heavyweight power-lifters becomes dysfunctional because of this square/cube thing, that is, by solving for the point at which just standing up becomes the same effort as a 1000-lb squat or dead-lift at his normal weight which you'd assume to be around 350, that is: 1350/(two-thirds power of 350) = x/(two-thirds power of x) You get a number around 20,000 lbs which would be a theoretical size limit for our present world. In real life the biggest elephant around 15,000 lbs and that's around 1% of elephants. That's the real world limit. 2/3 power of weight is the normal scaling factor for lifting events, i.e. it eliminates the effect of different sizes and lets you see who, amongst the champions of various weight divisions, has actually done the best lift for a particular event.

What about Dinosaurs in the future?
There is no way to start with what Newton and/or Einstein ever said about gravity and believe that it could have ever undergone a major change near our own planet's surface, but it is a very simple demonstration that it has. The familiar square/cube problem prohibits animals any larger than elephants in our present world. Gravity is an electrostatic dipole effect of some sort, it is not a basic force in nature.

Sonia Shah: 3 reasons we still havenâ€™t gotten rid of malaria
One simple word: DDT http://junkscience.com/ddt/ http://junkscience.com/1999/07/26/100-things-you-should-know-about-ddt/ http://junksciencearchive.com/malaria_clock.html A friend of mine once took a course in ornithology under America's greatest expert on birds of prey i.e. Dr. Heinz Meng. Asked about DDT point blank in the classroom in front of 30 people, Meng replied that everything my friend had ever heard or read about it was a bunch of BS, that it had zero effect on any kinds of birds or bird eggs including birds of prey. They all but had malaria and polio wiped off the planet by 1965 or thereabouts and that was too good for them. They had bedbugs totally wiped off the south 48 states, that was also too good for them. Nothing ever developed any sort of a real immunity to DDT, the ONLY problems aroe from it gigantic use as an area pesticide for crops. Using it to protect human habitats would have no downside.

The larger dinosaurs could not function in present gravity. You'd have to find a smaller planet or a planet with its gravity attenuated by electromagnetic/electrostatic phenomena to put them on.
