My Daily Thoughts


Our Time on Earth

It was Apollo 8 that first showed us the tiny blue marble of Earth floating in the void of space, one of the great psychological shifts in human history. From out there, we can both appreciate and begin to solve the problems of our world in ways unavailable to us otherwise.

I am just returning from a week of camping in Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, Canada.

One revelation that really strikes me is that dinosaurs were on the earth for about 174 million years.

The Mesopotamian Civilization is the oldest civilization which was about 5500 years ago. That means that dinosaurs were on earth about 30,000 times longer than we have been.

What will the earth be like when humans have been on earth for 174 million years, or can we even last that long.
