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.

  • The past may be mysterious, but the future is even more mysterious, there is no way to tell what the future holds, the only events that are sure to happen no matter what are astronomical events, such as solar and lunar eclipses for example, we can pinpoint the exact location of the eclipse as well as the exact timing down to the second.

  • I don't feel we need to preserve life. Not in the strict sense. We need to preserve the ability for life to flourish. Extinction and new species arising is part of nature. Unfortunately we are a driving factor of Mass Extinction. But if we can survive long enough, we will have to geo-engineer our planet to sustain oxygen levels and push it away from an expanding sun and keep our core moving for a strong magnetic field. Our create a custom one.

  • Neat thought experiment, and might be possible, but we also need to remember that the crocodile is a surviving dinosaur. I'd guess there was a greater chance of dinos looking like them rather than a parrot.

    • Crocodiles are not Dinosaurs in the same way that Hippos aren’t whales. Both groups share common ancestry, but they are not apart of the same group. Crocodiles are apart of a group of Reptiles called Archosaurs, which also includes Dinosaurs (both avian and non-avian) and Pterosaurs (like Pteranodon or Quetzalcoatlus). So whilst both Crocs and Dinos are archosaurs, they are both separate groups of archosaurs, just as whales and hippos are separate types of ungulates

  • what a loss indeed that we can't know everything about dinosaurs, but we do get to experience something pretty incredible and that is the blue whale. if I'm not mistaken, the blue whale represents the biggest species to ever exist on planet earth as far as we know. pretty amazing that we coexist if you ask me.

  • that is a whole lot of worthless "maybe"... Here are the facts: - Dino's existed on a spectrum between reptiles and birds. We know this because they split from repiles, and the decendents we have left are birds. - We know that birds came from a VERY specific branch of dinos, and thus we can only infer that specific branch from birds. - We know a very little about specifics aside from bone structure, and thus we simply cant infer much outside of those specifics... Going any further from what facts we have is irresponsible fake news.
