In some other threads it happen that I needed to explain something what was in a domain of geology. But I couldn't do it because that would be going totally of topic. So, I have created a thread that will serve for that purpose. For people who don't know I am geology student.
From what I see there is a lot of people on this forum that are intellectually
curious and this part of science is almost unknown to general public epecially if we take our the Dinosaurs. Which are just a small part of the entire story.
There are things that are worth of posting for sure.
This thread will probably mess with peoples minds a little bit.
Few days ago I have found one good video on youtube.
It shows how continents move across the globe during the last 600 million years.
Video starts 600 million years ago and it is going towards the present.
Most of the time you can't recognize Earth since it looks totally different then now. You need to wait to somewhere around 200 millioin years ago to see something that you can recognize.
At the beginning continents are gray bacause plants and animals do not exist in that time period.
I accept question if there are any.
