Thats from the Gaia Network. A platform for flaky New Age pseudoscience. So you have to take it with a pillar of salt.

The guy is a charismatic speaker, but even without much expertise on his topics I can detect flaws in his lecture.

He mentions that Mesoamerican Indians had "a metric system". *A* metric system???? That just means that could count by tens - and just did their measures in base ten - rather than using a mish-mash of base six and base eight (like the British imperial system of measures). Doesnt mean that they had...contact with time traveling space aliens who introduced them to a future measurement system (or whatever hes trying to prove).

And "dinosaurs with meat on their bones"?

That "stegosaurus on the Cambodian temple" thing is an old meme that has been shown to be lame. Compare the critter that that guy talks about thats carved into the temple- to a real stegosaurus. A real stego had a tiny head. That thing has big warthog like head. Stegos had spike like spines on their tails. That thing does not have that. The flat big "spines" on its back that look dinosaurlike are most likely leaves in the backround. And the critter is a modern warthog. But even if it did look more like stego than it does - thats a lot to hang on one single carving- saying that one carving proves that "humans lived alongside dinosaurs".
