No silly, they only ran the simulation once up to the first
Homo erectus. The billions of simulations running now all
started at that point. The dinosaurs only lived once.
They just leave the dinosaurs in the sim because their fossils
serve to create the dynamic tension between the scientists
and the creationists and thats the point of the sim -- what
is the probability that conditions can be flipped and we will
see that a majority will survive and triumph to ride the wave
given the fact that the people preparing to do so are currently
an inconsequential drop in the bucket?
