The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

I don't know much about dinosaurs, nor even animals that exist today, so i have a question. many of the things that were said here compared dinosaurs to modern day animals, but aren't many living species, such as lions and elephants mammals, while dinosaurs were reptiles? aren't birds the dinosaurs closest "relatives" because of ones such as the pterodactyl, which was very different from other dinosaurs? I might, of course, just be wrong, but wouldn't that mean they're likely to still be very different?

This was truly miraculous. I would like to see you do a vidoe using concepts of different species on other planets. Exploring what creatures could exist on different earth like planets and even create concepts of different humanoid species. Another idea could be to look at how humans could react and respond to these species and also how relationships can be formed for all to triumph. Title WHAT SPECIES COULD BE OUT THEIR AND HOW WOULD WE RESPOND.

Speaking of Dinosaurs, I feel as if some of the collective information is incorrect. Studying & researching the fossils ... in my opinion again... & it's only speculation. Some of the fossils present like they could possibly be the same species of dinosaur at different stages of life.

We have so many weird animals today. Take octopuses. They are intellengent creatures with 8 arms, have color and pattern changing skin and use ink to ward of predators yet they only have a small beak and the largest octopus has a really small beak. HOW ARE FUTURE SCIENTIS SUPOSED TO KNOW THIS? HOW MANY CREATURES LIKE THIS ARE WE MISSING?

I read the comments b4 watching the video and i found a lot of people saying that they got a bit emotional watching this video and i found it kinda absurd like why would someone cry over dinos? Welp after watching the vid i guess i can say yes this vid was indeed an emotional 11 minute journey to past. Whoever wrote the narrator script knows how to make people emotional, for real.

Richard Blazer

We have some very small patches of scaled skin, although we can't rule out the possibility of feathers completely, and given the developmental conditions of dinosaurian feathers, they could very likely have both as they age or seasonally.

Lot of misinformation here, after what happened at Mt St Helens, we are seeing fossils, layers and petrified wood that can develop in a very short time, and get the same crazy mix of carbon dating numbers when testing for age. That agenda to leave out God from the equation causes scientists to look foolish and untrustworthy.

@Captain Meow No, not anything with C 14 can be dated, you can’t use it on newly formed zircon crystals, something has to be at least 100 years old for it to be carbon 14 dated, and any instance of dinosaur fossils being dated using radiocarbon dating is monumentally ignorant, it is permineralized, you can’t carbon date a permineralized fossil, it is not the true bone and any instance it has occurred it has been contaminated. Soft tissue in issues is caused by iron from hemaglobin from red blood cells being expelled and causing cross linking, do you fail to understand what that entails as well?
Captain Meow
Captain Meow 4 日 前
@Richard Blazer Because you bypassed what I was saying and invented your own argument, I wasn't going to play along and called you on your M.O. Also anything with carbon 14 can be dated, but since the method actually used is flawed you can get more than one number from the same piece...and carbon 14 does have a shelf life like with dino soft tissue! Look it up some time.
Richard Blazer
Richard Blazer 4 日 前
@Captain Meow You dodged the question, I’ll ask it again. Why on earth would you carbon date zircon crystals from a volcano? That is what you said, and that the dates came back wrong, of course they would, you can’t carbon date that, the fact that you don’t understand that demonstrates that you do not understand how radiocarbon and radiometric dating methods work.

just think about there might be creatures that roamed the surface of the earth even before the dinosaurs did, or might be just a form of extraterrestrial life that just discovered earth as a habitable place then later on become us humans.

There were many groups of animals that lived before the dinosaurs, literally tons. Gorgonopsids, dicynodonts, many other synapsids, many pseudosuchians, pterosaurs, other avemetatarsalians, early amniotes, the list goes on.

Ice13 6 日 前
It's impossible to travel back in time, unfortunately, we currently know that we cannot break the flow of time no matter what But there's something that's possible, seeing back in time, if we can find a reflective surface 125 million light-years away, we can see the universe during the time of the first dinosaurs. Idk how the heck we'd zoom in on earth Here's the calculations for seeing back in time if you're curious reflective surface distance (lightyears)= time x2 (for light to reach the reflective surface and back) ex. We can see what happened on Earth 2 years ago if we installed a mirror 1 light-year away, same applies for the dinosaurs but different proportions ...and this isn't even breaking the rules of the universe, it's just manipulating light

Studies have NOT proven that dinosaurs had have feathers. This assumption is not likely, dinosaurs were more reptile like - and had more scaly skin rather than thick feathers (I’m not getting this from Jurassic Park). The assumption that dinosaurs have feathers is unlikely, and was probably not true.
Richard Blazer
Richard Blazer 4 日 前
Just, wrong in every way. Yes, dinosaurs were reptile like, of course they were, they are archosaurian reptiles after all. Although, just highly derived, active, endothermic, social, and feathered reptiles. And that isn't speculation, that is a fact. We have multiple dinosaur specimens with direct evidence of feathers, such as Sinosauropteryx, Zhenyuanlong, Yutyrannus, Psittacosaurus, and many, many more.

Fantastic work, that was a much more intense eleven minutes than I expected.

I was raised religious, believing that the earth was specially made for humans less than 10,000 years ago, and I can't help but feel offended at this point over the how people can be so arrogant as to believe that this world somehow belongs to us by birthright, meanwhile it's clear as day we're so new to this scene that if we were all to be wiped out tomorrow, the human era would be but a footnote in the history of life on earth to whatever future archeologists dig us up.
