If you are interested in a specific section jump to it directly:

Solar System Formation

Formation of the Moon

First Seas, Land & Atmosphere

Origins of Life

There are so many theories on the creation of the Earth and Moon that many of us don't really know what to believe, and, simply don't care.

There are many human related problems on earth which are far more important than navel gazing on the past, and I'm not exactly enamoured of all the money spent on Space Exploration either.

May be gazing on the past may bring up a theory ( a breakthrough ) that would help us to figure out how to deal with Global Warming in a more effective way.

and btw i thought that you might have the experience to tell us what to believe cause you are the only one who survived all that, didn't you???

arana - toyomotor is but a kid compared to me, so I don't think he saw the creation...

However, when God said "Let there be light", I'm the electrician who already installed all the wires.  

Welcome to our World - Worldhistoria - which now also, is your world  :)

Yes indeed, some scientific studies, like those being done on Antarctic ice may shed some light on global warming.

But, while I accept that mankind is contributing to global warming by pollution of the atmosphere, it also must be acknowledged that earth has suffered global warming and freezing phases over the millennia. Now, if by studying them and what caused them we can avoid any future massive global climate changes, fair enough.

As for the creation, I helped plant the Garden of Eden, but that was long after Northman and Panthers time.

In the words of the late Robin Williams.
"Reality, wow! What a concept!

Maybe World Historia is a simulation, or even a simulacra.
A simulation presupposes that some like all 'this' is a imitation of something that "exists" in the "real" world.
A simulcra is an imitation of something that does _not_ exist in the "real" world.

Think of a symphony where a microphone is hooked up to each instrument and then the whole thing is digitally mixed on the sound board.  That would be the imitation of a performance that never "really" existed.

But this specific thread is about the earths past, like other threads about space exploration. For those who want to discuss our problems: Fine. Let us have a thread about those problems, and perhaps about our very own solutions? I prefer that for just being "against" something.

What I want to know is what did the sun look like in past eras.  From what I understand, the sun is getting brighter, the moon is slowly getting further away.  I imagine that during the dinosaurs, with more cloud cover(?) it would be hard to see the stars.  During the dinosaurs, there was more oxygen in the air, and forest fires were fiercer.  Of course, the Earth had two moons for awhile before they combined.  And like most stars, our Sun started life out in a stellar cluster.  What did the sun's neighborhood look like before the cluster got all spread out, through the rotation of the cluster around the galactic center.  If i recollect correctly, flowering plants were not around during the time of the dinosaurs.  If I am wrong about that, I am sure that someone will correct me:)

None of these really are big things in the history of the world, but they are "little" things that would tell us that we are dealing with a different reality than the one we are used to.

To me, the biggest event, was the manufacture of an oxygen atmosphere by the stromatolites.  I want to make T-shirts saying "God bless the stromatolites".  I guess some of them still exist in a bay down under in Australia.  Lot of weird things in Australia, marvelous weird things.  Witness the platypus, a know that God has a sense of humor;)
