scientists believe the human race is around 276,000 years old and place the earth at 4.54b so that puts the human race around .00607% of earths time, given 24 hrs which is 86400 seconds and so we are just .00607% of 86400 which gives us a whole 5.24448 seconds.

if your going to post something math related plz ensure your math is correct.

P.S. (monkeys don't count as homo sapiens)

and before someone says but we are only 200,000 that is what wiki says http://www.infoniac.com/environment/how-old-is-human-race-new-data.html

Technically speaking, all members of the Homo genus is considered human (i.e. Homo Habilis, Homo Ergaster, etc.). The earliest known remains of the a member of the Homo genus dates back to about 2.33 million years, so if we include all species under the genus homo we have been on earth for about 44.341850 at most.

Keep in mind, I am using the broadest definition for the term "human" to find this number. In addition, Anon is correct as well if "human" in this case refers to modern humans.

Don't trust infographics found online, and remember to check online to see if it matches current evidence.


44.341850 at most using umbrella definition of "human". Anon is correct as well in his answer. Don't trust infographics.

not all members of the Homo genus are humans they are hominids which means they share humanlike characteristics but they are not quite human. This is excluding Homo sapiens of course.

I really hate this notion that we're insignificant and horrid for destroying the world and each other.
We're the most highly evolved and magnificent beings on this entire ******* rock. Hell, we're the most highly evolved beings in our solar system, and we might be the most highly evolved and intelligent in the entire universe for all we know.

Sure, on a cosmic scale we're not very significant, but neither is anything else. We cannot percieve things on a cosmic scale or through the eyes of time, as both of these things ivalidate literally anything else. The only two significant things when viewing the world like this, is the beginning and the end of the universe. Everything in between where just pointless particles mashing about.

The Human race has advanced a breath taking amount, and our collective ingenuity and intellect has allowed to, time and again, supass the barrier of what we though possible. Last time i check up on it, we were in the early stages of experimentation of creating a gravitational flux, essentially allowing us to perform the steriotypical 'warp jump' if it works. The physicists behind it, couldn't find a problem with the theory of these 'warp jumps' either, so its technically possible.
Let that sink in. Us. So called "insignificant us" are ******* with space-time. Any one species that can experiment on ******* with the fabric of reality, isn't so very insignificant now, are they?
We're ******* amazing, and the idiots amongst us shouldn't get to pull the rest of us down with their ignorance.
We're the ******* masters of reality, and no hipstery-hippie asshole is going to tell us otherwise. No religion is going to degrade us with being sinful creatures or tell us that life is torment that we must escape.
Life and reality is a beatiful and magnificent thing, our beatiful and magnificent play-thing.

TL;DNR: Stop postulating that we're insignificant and horrid. We're not.

True that. Now wrap your head around this:

The time between when the Stegosaurus lived and when the T-rex lived is actually larger than when the T-rex lived and the present day. Millions upon millions upon millions of years, and they were still dinosaurs.

Fast forward to Mankind in its entirity. We've only been here an estimated some odd 8k-10k years. Literally a decimal point of that timespan, yet we are so much more advanced than all other life on this planet. How do you account for such a huge gap?

<<<<Check it.

Remember that not too long ago it was the general consensus that Earth was the center of the universe and everything was here specifically for us. The way I see it, things like this attempt the put us in our place, in a sense. It is easy to forget or at least stop considering just how mind blowingly vast the Universe is, let alone the history of the Planet we live on.

I don't think anyone is trying to say that we aren't an anomaly worthy of awe, just that when you look at the Universe as a whole, humanity really doesn't stick out. Remember that it is possibly more likely than not that we are not the only sentient species in the Universe.

Not to mention we're the only beings that actually have the concept of meaning on this planet. So in the end if we're gone the world would have no meaning because there is nothing to give the notion of "meaning".

We are neither, but we have the choice to be. we also have the choice to be the opposite.

User avatar #170 to #24 - zedong (05/24/2013) [-]
well, the first 15 hours (or even more?) would be melted rock and lava cooling slowly into a hard, cold surface, then microorganisms would slowly start to grow. Dinosaurs first appeared about 230 million years ago, and the earth is about 4,5 billion years old, so the dinosaurs would first appear after about 22 hours and 45 minutes, then then they would disappear about an hour later, and as the top comment says, only the last 5 seconds would be of humans.

I think that something about life is that it spreads. So far our planet has just spread with diversity. I think that the next step is to continue to spread. If that means that we can or need to leave this planet. That seems pretty important, so we've done that, it's broadened the scope of life to other possibilities with even more interaction for life. Perhaps earth is just a step for life into another corridor of existence.

I remember reading some "experiment" for kids:
You hold your arms outstretched and say to your audience that the space between the very tips of your fingers and fingernails represents the entire span of the universe, from the beginning to the present. You then scrape the tip of your fingernail against a rough surface and say you just erased the entirety of human existence.

I don't know how accurate it is, I just remember it being neat when I read it many years ago.
