Interesting how nobody wanted that big blob at the top of the screen for ages and ages then Russia came along and said "Ok we'll have it then, I suppose it's not great though, but if that's all there is left without traveling a long way, well have it, you do understand that an awful lot of it is fecking awful though don't you, rest of the world?" :D

This will cause a lot of arguments.......
I don't know where to begin.
A modern human skull found in Greece has been dated to be at least 210,000 years ago.
There were Aboriginals in Australia 60,000 years ago.

#2 There's nothing wrong with an intelligent discussion, the video may have not listed everything.

#2 It will only cause arguments with brainwashed Theists whose only argument is the evidence they call upon from their bibles and the like. This is not an argument at all, leave them to live in their imaginary world and the rest of us who live in reality can get on with ours. Fact and science will eventually de-solve the stupidities of religion, sadly it won't be in my lifetime or generations to come, but we are in new times and knowledge will eventually little by little separate stupid superstitions from the real world. It will just take the deaths of generations of fools to get there. <3

#4 So true, and I very much agree, one can never have a normal conversation with Theists because everything is based and leads back their religion and is therefore limited and restricted, kills all free thought and ideas, and causes strife. And it won't be anytime soon, that truth pervails, but eventually it will, not in our lifetimes...<3

Over 17 mins to get to a billion people. Then 7.5 billion in under 2 mins. Who owns what land will become pretty irrelevant pretty fast (within the context of this video) when mass migration through brute force for survival purposes becomes increasingly common.

#6 Yes, that's a good point. Food for thought for those who are against refugees fleeing wars and those looking for better economic opportunities. Wouldn't anyone?

#6 I'm not sure I agree. Of course I don't have a crystal ball but it seems as though the more affluent and educated people become the less children they have. I think the Earth will hit a max and then constrict from there.
