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.

    With some tiny chance there might be ancient alien life that have recorded our past and perhaps in some distant future they can share their recordings with us. So just maybe, the "uknown unknown" won't stay that way forever.
    Alternatively if we ever figure out worm holes we might be able to look at the past earth ourselves using unimaginably insane telescopes :p
    Meanwhile it's incredible what people are able to derive and guess based on archeological discoveries.

    I really love the idea of dinosaurs being all colorful with patterns and emotional.
    But I'm confused now of some reasons.
    Comparing dinosaurs to similar reptiles we know: Crocodiles, which are neither colorful nor emotional beings.
    And we can't compare them to mammals like lions because mammals generally tend to have feelings and emotions.
    But when we consider their evolutionary beings: Birds which are obviously very colorful and emotional like mammals.
    So, I'm not sure whether to consider them as colorful and emotional or no?

      @T T i get that but that's like the basic mother qualities almost every living being does. What I meant was about the qualities when they get old, like the ones shown by the lions, playing with each other, grooming and licking each other.

    Soooo scales can “evolve” into feathers? I heard recently that the Darwin theory was false. They best and most truthful thing about this video is where the narrator said that he doesn’t know. Evolution is a lie, it was God not the Big Bang, Dinosaur fossils have been manufactured and MY ancestry never “evolved” from an ape but was created fully formed by the greatest power in existence not some random explosion. People are free to believe what they want, I know what I am and no Colorful animated video with a pretentious British narrator will convince me otherwise . Praise God
