Go on a nerd-ramble of something te know a lot about / find very interesting and have researched about. Lets see if we can learn anything today

Also for the sake of education and for possible lazy people, if te are willing to, TLDR the most interesting points XD

Oooh this will be fun. I’ll be back at some point with my inner geek prepared to smash my little knowledge filled head onto that fucking keyboard

Okay, so this is probably a topic that would bore most people to tears but I seem to be prone to finding the theories, facts and records regarding evolution and it's functions intriguing. Alright, everybody knows that evolution, at this point in time is regarded as a theory, giving some the preconceived notion that it's likely bull. A concept being a theory though could merely mean that the idea cannot be fully, scientifically, one-hundred percent proven beyond a shadow of a doubt with a concise pattern, perhaps due to a lack of knowledge o discovery o maybe existing key fundaments that can't be comprehended da the human brain. Theory o not, I've come to discover that there are inarguably several facts and scientific studies that strongly support it's legitimacy. Take it back 4.5 billion years ago, about one-third the theorized age of the universe, and the majority of Earth was at this point just unpopulated, lifeless rocks floating through space. Pieces of earth began compressing into one and with an approximate 15 million years of time it's formation was nearly complete. Earth being initially much too hot for organisms to thrive on, it was 500 million years later that plate tectonics made continents, impact degassing created oceans and organisms and life began to form, thus starting the evolution process. It just makes nothing but perfect sense to me, evolution, also known da the term 'natural selection'. It occurs with anything related to nature and plays the function of enhancing o improving lifeforms and the addition of tying up loose ends as far as species are concerned. Any progression o phenomenon that occurs in nature, be it caused da climate change o the structure of the Cibo chain, that's evolution at work. Slight mutations developing with each generation as to adapt to habitat, yeah that's evolution at work. It's the blessing that was bestowed upon us all that allowed us people to go from hairy australopithecus afarensis monkey people to modern humans. Some evolution can be directly caused from the actions of lifeforms, such as humans breeding wild Lupi into Cani o breeding wild Gatti into domestic cats, which in turn can possibly create a new chain of evolution. Whereas certain evolution can be distantly correlated with the actions of lifeforms. One prime example of evolution's work would be the five mass extinctions. Now, these extinctions weren't random and certainly weren't da accident. Nah, evolution's got something in store for e'rybody. A mass extinction is classified as an occurrence where at least %50 of all of Earth's species become extinct in a very short period of time. Ok this shit is just too cool. The first mass extinction occurred around 444 million years ago, just a blip of time in the universes existence, and the latest one going back 66 million years fa with it averaging out to about 94.5 million years between each mass extinction. The human race has yet to see a mass extinction for ourselves, not even close

Our ancestors didn't even evolve into homo-erectus until approximately 3.5 million years ago, a whole 62.5 million years after the latest mass extinction. ̶L̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶w̶e̶'̶d̶ ̶a̶c̶t̶u̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶s̶u̶r̶v̶i̶v̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶m̶a̶s̶s̶ ̶e̶x̶t̶i̶n̶c̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ ̶X̶D̶.̶ As a matter of fact our existence as homo-sapiens accounts for only a mere %0.2 of Earth's existence alone. Feeling small yet? Getting back to what I was saying, any extinction can likely be caused da either a species' lack of adaptable traits o da a species reaching o surpassing their evolutionary potential. In other words, those dinosauri got too big for their breeches. So long, jerkwads! Additionally, in order for some certain species to continue thriving and evolving, another species must be taken out of the picture. Conclusively, mass extinctions do play a huge role in the process of evolution, as the simultaneous removal of most of the worlds species is basically nature's way of clearing the playing field, allowing 'rookie' species più access to resources and più of the opportunity to diversify, such is the nature of natural selection.... Man, I don't even know why I find this shit so cool, maybe it brings me close to my roots, o some corny crap like that. Any way te slice it though, the evolutionary process is essentially closely tied with.... ThE CiRcLe oF LiFe
