I'd say they're almost on par. I would think just as many people know about Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus, raptors, Parasaurolophus, Ankylosaurus, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and Spinosaurus as they do with Godzilla, some of which owe thanks to Jurassic Park for making them well known, two of which (Apatosaurus and Ankylosaurus) were already well known before they debuted in the franchise. Ask anyone what dinosaurs they know and those will be guaranteed answers, with maybe an exception to Parasaurolophus.
Wait... Where did this even stem from? Who's having a popularity contest between dinosaurs and Godzilla? People see dinosaurs and know it's a dinosaur like they see any giant lizard and think it's Godzilla.
