    I thought it was already an obvious fact that the plague evolved with rats and flees without any need for humans.

    Hey genius, since both the plant and bug ARE TOTALLY different, which one came first? Did all the plants die before it "found a bug" to help it eat and live? Since it's a symbiotic relationship, that would require that both were "made" at the exact same time?

  10. Nate

    Nate5 hari yang lalu

    Not necessarily. Humans survived for hundreds of thousands of years before they developed a relationship wiht some wolves (who also had been around for quite a long time) and then the wolves evolved into dogs and we've had a symbiotic relationship with them.

    Are fleas only carriers of diseases or do they suffer and die from diseases or sicknesses like most lifeforms do?!

  13. Nate

    Nate5 hari yang lalu

    Well, with the plague they are as much victims as carriers. The glob of gunk that forms when the fleas drink plague-infested blood actually prevents their digestive system from getting the nutrients they need from the blood and starves them, forcing them to bite more and more to try desperately to feed which increases the chance of spreading the disease.

    "Earlier in history"? History does go back a million years. I think he means pre-history.

    My understanding was that History started with humans inventing a written language. Therefore I don't think it goes back a million years. The rest is all pre-history

    The bird foot with electro in its name is because the ancient Greek word for amber is Electron. They might run it against wool and get zapped. We call the little bits of zapp, electrons. Who would have thought. Electric eels are called Torpedo. When you get zapped with 800 volts, it's as if your hand has been blown off.

    Just a nit to pick, but a lump of fossilized amber isn't an "artifact". An artifact is made by artifice, IOW, by people, not by natural processes like the fossilization of tree sap. But otherwise, good show.

    This comment is a little off the topic, but. Remember, I think in the 70s, give or take a million yrs Lightning would spark off a forest fire. The fire was watched to keep other areas safe. It would burn it's self OUT. Then some moron in Washington DC, came up with the idea, when a fire started, run out there and put the fire OUT. Well, fast forward a few decades, plus or minus couple million yrs. The undergrowth built up because man wanted to play God. "My thoughts are, this was planned out for a reason. This is a story for another time." Now, when a fire starts, natural or...otherwise, with the build up of dead undergrowth dry as a cotton ball, the fire becomes a uncontrollable fire storm that man cannot control almost by any means. Was it deliberately planed this way? Think about it.

    Speaking of the Salamander, wading across to the Caribbean...one, the sand was just wet. Two, it had really long legs. My guess is, one remote chance, it took, Caribbean cruise ship. One really remote chance, Caribbean Air. Yeah, I know, what I said is out there in left field. Scientists, 95% of the time, can only speculate what may have happened. My guess was a 100% B.S. speculation and then some. LOL. That flea sure looked like any flea that you see on Fido today, didn't it? What about the feather sorta saying, it came from a, LEAPING Dino. That's a foul out in left field ya think? That's got to be a cream job being a scientist, make a guess, right or wrong and still get a paycheck.

    Amber being like the blood of a tree you'd need a whole forest to bleed all its resin at the same time to enclose an entire dinosaur... I find it an unlikely event to occur naturally.

    Couldn't the amber bird be a mutation individual to the specific bird encased in amber? Why is the assumption that it was an entire species?

  35. Nate

    Nate5 hari yang lalu

    Because it would be about as likely as finding only one human hand millions of years from now and that hand belonging to someone who had six fingers on that hand. It's not impossible but very highly improbable.

    People always say we cant have Dinos like in Jurassic Park because we don't have the DNA but they miss the point that in that fictional world they are lying about having the DNA in the first place and actually reversed engineered the "dinosaurs" from birds. They are genetic Frankenstein monsters that just resemble dinosaurs which is some brilliant science fiction writing imo.

    i find that very interesting they found a flea 15 million year's old flea in amber, which begs the question how old really is human beings? I'm not saying human's are 15 million year's old, but i will stake my life on it, that we are much older that 100,000-300,000 year's old as a human species, the reason is mammals lived with dinosaurs, granted they we're litte rats thing's but the fact remains this, it took what 65 million years to evolve into human's but we have crocodiles, alligators, coelacanth,and so-on that never really changed in 400,000 millions year's but we have these mysterious ape-like things that pop out, out of the blue randomly, but something has got to happen to the ecosystem radically for this to occur, but im going on and on about this subject, but content like this is thought provoking and very interesting.

    @David k I honestly don't know if they all had defenses against mosquitoes or how many mosquitoes were around.

  57. David k

    David k5 hari yang lalu

    @Nate see i stop myself form going on and on because i can go forever on the subject, think about this for one second it's 66,000 million year's ago there's reptilian dinosaurs, non-avian dinosaurs, tiny mammals, insects of all kinds, and every single one has some sort of defense mechanism i.e. armor pleading, feathers, etc, who was the mosquitoes feeding on? Second from the time of lucy to 40,000 year's ago only 1 humanoid species survived when there was dozens of humanoid species a 100,000 years ago, statistically speaking that shouldn't be 400,000,000 tell now we have scorpions, spiders, coelacanths crocodiles, alligators sharks, etc, there's only one of us, the point im trying to make, we must have gone back futher in time as a human species to make sence of theory of evolution of human beings.

  58. Nate

    As I recall something did happen to the ecosystem. We got caught in a part of Africa that progressively got drier and drier, turning from lush tropical forest into savanah and we adapted. Plenty of other species have appeared in tha time as well.

    I do find it interesting, that without anyway to prove most of this stuff, the amount of speculation, imagination, rationalization, and conclusions "scientists" come up with and then admit they "have no clue"... if you have no clue then they shouldn't make "comments" that sound like "facts" or even "reasonable" theories....... Observation: The original Ford cars came in any color you wanted, as long is was black... Why?... if it was never documented as to why, how would you "speculate"... Black was the cheapest paint available?... actually Barn Red may have been more prevalent at that time as it had been the cheapest paint for farmers to use on their buildings... so why didn't ford use Barn Red?... White might have been cheaper, as you have to add pigment to White to get Black...?... if it wasn't documented as to why he chose Black... any "guess" would be just that... and to complicate that guess/speculation you'd have to learn everything you could about Fords life and preferences, and financial resources... he may have just liked black or may have found some company which gave him a "deal" he couldn't pass up... to speculation about things that happened billions of years ago, in another time and climate, etc... is somewhat silly and a waste of time... we could just marvel at it and say "way cool, I wonder why and how that may have happened" and leave it at that because we'll never know...
