The Best Documentary Ever!! - The Story Of Earth And Life

The Earth might seem solid beneath our feet but five billion years ago there was no sign of the planet we call home. Instead there was only a new star and a cloud of dust in our solar system. Over millions of years, a series of violent changes led to the formation of our world and, eventually, the creation of life.

In this photorealistic CGI epic, see how a boiling ball of rock transformed into the blue planet we know today. Explore every aspect of our world; learn how water first arrived on Earth, discover the vital role oxygen played as life forms began to evolve, and find out how land mammals evolved into dinosaurs and other giant beasts, before becoming extinct 65 million years ago.

Cutting-edge imagery also reveals how humans first began to walk on two feet and looks into the future to see what may be in store for our home over the next five billion years.

After watching this, I have to wonder is there really a God. Or is it something that man has created to hold on to.

Interesting documentary. Some of the timeline vary from what I previously thought but the general scientific arguments are in harmony with my own understanding. I thought man came about much earlier though. This piece showed an earth that existed for a very long time before the existence of human.

But not before the Gecom dude, Patterson ...right?

That GECOM dude older than God. 

I remember reading somewhere that the human existence is some 600 million years old but even so, there was a lot of time when we, the lords of the earth was not in charge of it. This documentary also showed that the earth has experienced many instances of heating and cooling which bring into question how much attention we should give to global warming. We do see the mighty Dinosaur being destroyed by changes in the earth's atmosphere and we are no match for the mighty dinosaur.
