What if Earth had multiple sentient species?

Post by Darth Guilder on Sat Jul 08, 2017 11:02 pm

The many nations and cultures of humanity are extremely diverse in their languages, food, traditions, etc. However, in spite of it all, all sentient beings on Earth (that we know) are humans a.k.a. Homo sapiens. What would the world, history, warfare, cuisine, etc. of Earth be like if there were multiple species or subspecies of beings with comparable levels of sentience that share the planet. Leave suggestions or scenarios for any species you can come up with as long as it has intelligence comparable to humans. Examples: Neanderthals, more intelligent gorillas, chimpanzees, or dolphins, alien refugees that moved to Earth in the twentieth century, reptilian or avian beings that evolved from a group of surviving dinosaurs, and the list goes on and on.

I beleive that like the diverse tribes of africa pre-colonization, m any subspecies would retreat to certain areas of the world that support their bodies. Certain species would rather the plains of North America, others the Sahara, others the amazon.this may lead to a more even spread of population since there are possible races that can prefer some extreme weather while humans mainly prefer the temperate regions of the planet. There would be many interracial wars, genocides due to species, and different species allying. Maybe even VERY alternate world wars depending on how the demographics split the land. Maybe a turtlehitler declares war on a dolphinpoland because they are dolphin. Who knows.

One would become subservient to the other and then eventually be enslaved. At least that is what too many hours of Stellaris has taught me.

Well, they probably would be wiped out by the more powerful species, whether that be humanity or other. People were and still are, to a varying degree, fearful of those different than us. Imagine teaching your children about how their grandfather fought in the Purity Wars (or whatever it's called) and helped to rid the world of the bird monsters.
If the others manage to survive to modern times, then racism (or species-ism?) would probably be a big problem. That or a perpetual cold war between the species.
