Think of dinosaurs, along with other
fossils, as telling us something important about
history and that history is in a sense the
history that came before us, but it’s our history to. What happened, what heaven on this earth? What were those changes? And what lessons can we learn from that?
Let’s just take extinction, that massive dinosaur extinction that wiped out seventy five percent of
all the species on the globe. Currently because of environmental
destruction we’re experiencing a mass extinction event this century, in the
twenty first century. So looking at those past events
especially trying to investigate the question, how did species and ecologies or ecosystems recover after
that extinction event? how long did it take them to bounce back? Only
paleontologists can answer those questions.
