Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

  • Published: 04 August 2014
  • Planet Earth is this solid thing you are standing on right now. In your everyday life you don't really waste a thought about how amazing this is. A giant, ancient, hot rock. How did it come into existence and how big is it really? You will be surprised. The ground you are standing on is just a very, very small part of the big picture.

      I think there is a confusion between Lithosphere and Asthenosphere. Lithosphere is rigid when cold and soft when hot whereas Asthenosphere is always ductile and supports the plate movement.

      This info has now been proven wrong that first humans emerged from Africa and it has been only 200000 years.
      In america during an excavation, skull of homo sapien has been found which when was carbondated, was found out to be 1000000 years old.
      Scripts have been found in Tibet which are estimated to be way way longer than that!!
      Human prison was found in Kenya which was a 250000 years old.
      This is no lie. Could search it out for yourself

                  my question is why is there a difference between the collision of asteroids?, why were X number of asteroids present for the formation of water and other essential components then but now it's rare, is it a time thing? or are we still receiving asteroids but far smaller than anything that'd harm us

It would be really awesome whenever teachers, scientist, or these types of videos reference "theories", that they would point out to the fact that they are theories. People, especially kids, need to know that these are ideas that are worthy to be debunked and challenged so that we can go beyond theories.
