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.

    There you have it feathered dinosaur crowed!!! Kurzgesagt is one of the most accurate you tubers around and he did a great job pointing out a simple reality. We have no idea what alot of dinosaurs looked like, and frankly based on what evidence we DO have its likely very few of them had feathers.

    Another outstanding video! But, for balanced feedback, it seems like saying the tyrannosaurus “...probably had the strongest bite of any land animal ever...” in the same video where you point out that we have fossil remains of less than 1% of all the species that have ever existed....is highly problematic. It seems far more likely that other, even more powerful species existed, but they left no discoverable remains.

    This is stupid. The number of blue animals in the world is miniscule. Dinosaurs may not have been the green many expect, but they aren't blue. If not green, probably brown, maybe some yellow or red, but definitely not blue. Blue is a difficult color to replicate in nature. Green is easy because of chlorophyll, and brown is easy, just a mishmash of color.

    We should explore the deep oceans. Lots of alien-like creatures down there, and very unexplored. Everyone wants to go to Mars, to look for aliens, but nobody wants to find the life we already have here. Like Xenophyophores, the basketball sized single celled organisms that populate areas of the abyssal plain.

    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.
