    Humans Were Almost Extinct

    Scientists say that about 70,000 years ago, the human population could have shrunk to as low as 2,000!

    Maybe Mother Earth was shaking us off like fleas. But we humans are very much like busy little bunnies

    Has anyone ever seen on Discovery Channel the 2 hour long documentary on dinosaurs? There is a group of scientists that belive that they died out in a drought as well, and have earth core samples that they've analyzed. It's been awhile since I've seen it.

    Snowball Earth

    Scientists also believe the Earth has gone through at least one, if not many more, "snowball" Earth's. A state where the entire planet was covered in ice. They are unsure how this state ended, or how long they lasted, but it conjures phenominal thoughts of how life existed during these times.
