Sources & further reading:

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.

    E = MC^2 of science lose to sperm virus. Virus sperm are extremely sophisticated, sperm virus use 1 positron + suck 1 electron -- create lightning 0,1 voltage create energy for sperm virus to work, the function of viral sperms is to generate electricity for cells human and animals cells, the sperm virus enters the egg to create mitochondria, mitochondria produc millions lightning 0,1 voltage per second, so the humans and animals are always 37 degrees Celsius

    Even though we missed out on this era of time, the good news is, on a long enough timeline, there's comes a point where civilization invents a time machine, inevitably. So people 7,000 years from now can at least interact with that portion of time. On a long enough timeline, everything happens at least once, including me being a rapper.

    The title purports it's going to show us what dinosaurs looked like. Then when you watch it it's nothing but a long-winded explanation of why we don't even know what the majority of animals were that used to exist and have no idea what many of them looked like. I'm really deeply sick of the clickbait in titles.

    Love the videos you guys put out. Not sure how recommendations work, or if any are even taken, but I recently finished the highly controversial book The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes, How a Stone-Age Comet Changed the Course of World Culture, which talks about the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis proposed by Richard Firestone, Allen West, and Simon Warwick-Smith. Upon further research, I found that this hypothesis is highly contested to be true or not, and I would love to see your take on it. Fantastic and immensely informative work, looking forward to the next video!
