Anyone interested about extinct animals

    People of religion, have very little interest in our extinct animals history. A million species and 95% are extinct and religion mainly focuses on man's history.

    Why is that?

      Humans are generally considered to be higher forms of life than animals. Sadly, we behave lesser than a large percentage of life forms on our planet.  Not all religions focus on man's history and even hold some animals in higher regard than man.  Consider the cultures that won't kill a cow, but will allow people to go hungry or the temples where the rats are allowed to have full run of the place and are catered to.

        Man was not designed well for eating so much meat, about 90% of our dieses come from meat. Human have flat teeth and not the body acid to break down the digestion like other animal do.

        Man advantage over other animals is mainly the brain, eye sight and thumb. There is so much we can learn from our present animals and even a lot more from our missing 95% extinct animals. For example, the immortal jelly fish make the bible feel disrespectful toward it.

        I got a new pioneering vide coming on for a renew industry.

          Teeth have nothing to do with what foods you eat. I watch Seaseme street with my kids in the morning and just the other day it showed a video of kids eating veggies and all the kids bit into carrots with their K-9's not their front teeth. Arn't K-9's for eating meat?
          Panda's have sharp teeth and all they eat are plants.
          Grizzly's eat grass, anyone else know that? Yep grass, they graze like cows yet they have some sharp teeth too. Beware the man who has all the answers.

            Meat vs., water enrich food Health Reasons:

            1.Lower risk of cancer. Cancer by 25 to 50 percent.
            2.Lower risk of heart disease. Includes a vegetarian diet and is currently one of the few programs that have been proven to reverse heart disease. A vegetarian diet reduces cholesterol.
            3.Lower risk of osteoporosis.
            4.Lower risk of kidney and gallstones. Kidney stones and gall stones.
            5.Factory farmed animals carry disease. Risk from highly contagious diseases like Mad Cow Disease and Foot and Mouth disease in sheep and cattle.
            6.Factory-farmed animals contain toxic chemicals. 90% of those are not used to treat infections but are instead used as growth promoters.
            Environmental Reasons:
            7.Inefficient use of agriculture. 70% of U.S. grain production is used to feed farm animals.
            8.Inefficient use of water. It takes 2640 gallons of water to produce one pound of edible beef.
            9.Inefficient use of energy.
            Calories of fossil fuel needed to produce 1 calorie of protein in beef: 28.
            Calories of fossil fuel needed to produce 1 calorie of protein in soybeans:
            10.Environmental Pollution. Raising animals for food is the biggest polluter of our water and topsoil.
            11.Destruction of natural habitat. It takes more land to raise animals for food than it does to produce the equivalent nutritional value by raising edible plants
                                           Animal Rights Reasons:
                                      :   
            1 Animals on factory farms are over-
            2.crowded and Animals on factory farms are tortured.
            3.Animals on factory farms are treated like machines.
            4. We don’t need to eat animals! Most of us in the U.S. don’t eat animals because we must in order to survive. We eat them because we want to.

      I'm a Christian and am very interested in extinct animals. As a matter of fact, science was my degree!! Some may be closed minded, but not me! As a matter of fact, many of my hubs are on science... I just wrote one about a week ago about "fossils".  I find all areas of science to be very interesting!

        You living in Mississippi would most likely means you are a believer of a super natural God. I'm a spiritual non religious believer of God. Since most professional scientist are non believer of God. It will be interesting to hear your point of views. I wrote a hub on the Creation Museum

                  Wow, how did you get so many followers in 2 months?

                  I read one of your hubs on Sasquatch, reports of a hairy, man-like creature walking quickly or running through the wildernesses of North American.

                  I worked with John Green on a few sand sculpture projects. He is one of the leaders in the field about the Sasquatch also. His thoughts on that film you have, is they can not disprove it

                    I agree with his theory...they cannot disprove it! Which makes it possible in my opinion.

                    I think there's nothing too out of the normal for Sasquatch to exist....he's just a bigger-sized ape! If they've developed some tool skills then it's possible they could bury their own dead!

                    Wow....that's pretty amazing that you worked with him! Awesome!!!

    Our eyesight isn't all that great, our eyes have to constantly "jiggle" in order to avoid our inate blindspots, plenty of animals have far less restrictive and stronger eyesight. I wouldn't say it  was a comparative advantage!

    I agree with the brain and to some extent I think bipedalism is important (although walking fully upright is causing us almost universal backpain -- had it been slightly curved we wouldn't have the problem).

    I am currently reading "The greatest show on earth" by Dawkins and find it a marvelous book, so I would have to say that most days the past, and my imagination are my reality.

      Humans all round by measuring visual ability, fine detail, range of colour perception, depth perception, and long range of focal depth, then humans have the better vision of any animal.

      Runners up
      An eagle can see 8 times further than the average human, birds of prey eagles, hawks, owls have excellent eyesight because they can spot a mouse moving around in a field from very high up in the sky. Their eye balls are on each side of their head, giving them some disability

        many animals, insects, reptiles and birds have better colour vision than humans/primates.  eg a turtle has colour vision that extends into the UV and infra-red range.

        I read recently that australian marsupials see different colours to humans - they have 3 channels too, but one of them is UV

        I think humans would eat just about anything. In China I showed a picture of our pet horse, one guy ask me what dose horse taste like, I said no no no that horse is a champion and worth $30,000. Some of been known to eat preserved frozen Mammoths meat or Elephant meat is said to taste a bit fatty. People will eat whale blabber with seal sh*t, some bat blood, or maggot stew in leaves, or chocolate coated bugs. I could be ban if I told you what I’ve have really seen eaten around the world.

        It’s the largest animals who are on the highest risk of extinction list, today.

        Unless we protect them at gun point or adopt them as pets like the Flintstones, large dinosaur would be eaten to extinction too.

    I am very interested in the extinct species from the paleolithic
    era because I find and collect Native American artifacts.  Some are over 10,000 years old and were used to kill some of the huge animals during that period.

    Every time I find a projectile point I wonder what type of animal was attacked with this weapon.  Some are very large points!

        Actually, we have learned quite a bit about the earliest Americans over the last few decades.  The Topper site near the Augusta river has raised new speculation about the earliest people to live in this country.

        Some archeologists have speculated that habitation of this site by pre-Clovis era people may go back thousands of years earlier than first thought!

              Amazing site, Spiritual is the unknown, not the known in an over ego book. I am going to retry these N.A studies again because extinct animals still may not be ready with flow of what can sell.
              I’ve had a lot troubles presenting a views of North America History. That could be for the greatest embarrassment genocide in human history, the natives. Signs of modern man in the Americas are from earlier around 15,000 years ago, to Oahspe 40,000 years ago. Then native have their own stories. Indicating that modern man appeared in various places of the Earth at earlier stages of development rather than developing in one place and spreading out from there.

                    It is suspected that when our early ancestors started leaving the trees and began eating meat scavenged from predators.  This extra energy giving food enabled the brain to increase in size and function.
