The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

    • Yes Kurzgesagt I do notice you deleting all the spam, thank you alot

    • @Hot Rod Fucking what

    • @Gabriel Dias itll available thismohtn too

    • Hi Kurzgesagt i was wondering when will the portuguese captions be available, i wanted to show this video to my class, but many of them don't understand english so if you could get the captions soon, i would be very happy. Thank you by doing these videos

  • Watching this just made me realize that we will also become the past. People will be wondering how we lived and call Iphones precious artifacts😥

  • Pls Indonesian subtitle

  • 4:00 if u dont understand, he is saying that we dont realise that we dont know something.

  • Sorry for being rude but lizards are incapable of being snuggly otherwise you make a good point

  • This is one of my favorite video you'd ever done. The gorgeous animation with a beautiful message warms my heart a lot.

  • Imagen the 🦖 🦕 we’re the aliens pets!

  • Time travel is still a possibility. That would be wild if dinosaurs had a super advanced civilization and actually died out from a prehistoric nuclear war. No opposable thumbs makes that unlikely.

  • I didnt know i needed to hear the voice say 'fellows'

  • Sheesh

  • 2:30 Only because of satan

  • Can we have a moment to think how the first human who discovered a dinosaur skeleton may have though at that moment? Probably his mind went on wtf/s XD.

  • So who in your team is the pokemon master? Lol

  • I occassionally feel sad about the fact that I will never be able to see anything past that isn't recorded. Thank you for putting it in a video.

  • Christians hate him, find out who he is!

  • This gave me goosebumps and made my eyes tear. Thank u for such a beautiful well done video!

    • i always love your videos

  • just want to mention, there's a term for that skinny hollow appearance of animals designed based on only their skeletons: shrink-wrapping

  • Make a video on procrastination!!

  • Loved the reference to Sir David Attenborough at 09:31. Very nice. He's my hero.

  • David Attenborough at 9:32

  • 3:08 WW2 destroyed almost all possible Spinosouras fossils

  • So Yoshis were real after all…

  • The giant humanoid skeletons that was found: ayye we *don't* exist

  • This guy acts like time travel isn't a very real possibility in the not so distant future.

  • Big pogs

  • the music is amazing is this video

  • 4:46 yoo kurzgesagt chill 💀💀

  • There is no right. Its literally simply our own perception and things that tell us certain things but at the end of the fucking day...NO HUMAN REALLY KNOWS ANYTHING.

  • 2:25 Sheesh

  • Mind blowing channel. I can't believe this just came up in my recc . Really algorithms??!! Amazing work by these guys.

  • i always love your videos

  • I never I'd see "Sheesh" in a Kurzgesagt video 😂 I sometimes forget yall are up to date with memes and references

  • tfw you realize that rex probably couldn't roar, spino was not a bipedal 60 ft long carnivore and velociraptors were much smaller in real life than in jurassic park

  • sus

  • “We nee to use science and imagination...” pretty much in a nutshell

  • I was a dinosaur fan as a child and this video almost made me cry from the beauty of the images and words

  • Dude, you are ruining the next Jurassic World..

  • ...and modern academia has absolutely nothing to do with these changes.

  • Got some David Attenborough vibes from this one!

  • Porque no tiene subtitulos en español? :(

  • Di terjemahkan Bahasa Indonesia pasti keren nih

  • Just came from Anton Petrov's video on a found dino cell possibly containing DNA material!

  • Hopefully I go the way of the dinosaurs sooner rather than later

  • That is a good thing we find 15,000 species each year, seeing as how we annihilate like 10,000 species every year. Lol.

  • The found skeleton of humans together with dinos. Humans lived together with them. Also the found remaining as of giant’s so well yes I think the history books are pretty wrong

  • Can I get a sub out of sympathy?

  • This makes me think and know better and one day i will pas down this info to my children one day . thank u for helping me

  • I’m russian and I love that I don’t need a huge English knowledge to watch your videos, cause my English is pretty bad. By the way, thank you very much for your videos. The are very interesting to watch!

  • More indoctrination to the unwitting sheep. By using a foreign accent makes it appear “legitimate”!🤣🤣🤣

  • Just an example that there is no way that an (accident) can create this beauty.....pretty sure god did

    • @PHOENIX 837 neither did any for yours stop burning books

    • @Mut no one asked for ur reply too u know

    • Literally no one asked

  • I feel one of the most important things that make these videos so great is the music. It's just so good and really helps set the stage.

  • Let’s go Brandon!!!!!

  • susssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

  • How did you get the animated pictures in this video? I'm in school, so I definetely wants to impress my teacher.

  • What I find interesting is that if the meteor never landed and the dinosaurs carried on evolving there would list likely have been sentient dinosaurs roaming the earth right now

  • never know about them if they lived in areas that didn't facilitate fossilization.

    • Add arabic plz

  • I want dinosaurs to be brought back to life. But first we should look at the species we could appreciate today

  • A bit out of topic, but someone should start teaching American young earth creationists about creation through evolution, just as almost all other Christians believe. Just a thought. In many EU countries, it is illegal to teach young earth creationism, because let's face it, it is just dumb and outdated.

  • Big bang 😳

  • It's crazy scientists can tell all this by the bones left and other things.

  • This video is so beutiful! you guys have really come a long way with colors and movements, and it is a joy to watch. Thank you so much for sharing your imaginations with us!

  • Damn, Christians must absolutely hate this channel lol

    • Oh they do they do

    • I'm a Christian but I do appreciate science. Trying to consolidate knowledge from the Bible & what science tells us.

  • Movie staffs still can't let those "correct versions" appear on movies or televisions - People love to watch quasi-dragons, they do not wish to watch a bunch of giant awkward-looking ostriches.

  • ‘Evolution’ mate not everybody believes in that

    • @castel de cristal not that it’s hard to understand, it’s just stupid.

    • @Command3r Cody Brickfilms ah yes, you believe that an eternal being created us but evolution is SO HARD for you to understand..

    • @castel de cristal Oh and please tell me, where is PURE evidence that evolution is true. Give me 10 facts that make sense and I’ll believe you.

    • @castel de cristal I do believe in science, but not that OUT OF NOWHERE some two fucking planets collided on their own making earth, and then some small life forms turned into prehistoric salamanders, which led to them fucking each other until they magically ‘evolved’. Yes people, somehow these creatures evolved into other creatures.

    • @Command3r Cody Brickfilms ah yes because your fairytales are SO accurate, don’t reply back because i won’t be replying back, i don’t wanna keep talking to a delusional person who believes some magical man created everything but doesn’t believe in science

  • You know there is some saddness to this. That we will never really know how dinosaurs looked like. Only our limited imagination can aid a little.

  • at least we are not furry foxy like primates

  • Imagine if Aliens found human fossils and imagine us a creepy skinny creatures just by looking at our bones.

  • Still dont get why there arent ads on this channel cause this one isnt part of Funk

  • The Animation makes it more interesting to watch.

  • One thing is for sure. This video is an opiate induced pile of soon to be copralite (fosillized crap), don't waste your time watching it.

  • or are they?

  • *five seconds in* "There are even more things that we don't know we don't know" Thanks, Kurzesagt.

    • Right. An illiterate person is not somebody who didn't go to college, but somebody who doesn't want to update their information from time to time, if not everyday.

  • Add arabic plz🗿

  • *cough* All Yesterdays *cough*

  • So smoov

  • you are in a nutshell so i'm surprised how you could see all this....

  • This was really beautifully done

  • This was really beautifully done

  • nothing about this is real and this propaganda should be illegal and the creator should be put in jail

  • After watching this, I start to think Jurassic Park isn't such a bad idea anymore.

  • "a loss" - on one hand, sure - on the one where they can and will just eat us, not so much :P great video

  • WOW

  • WOW

  • Beautiful 🥺

  • 2:09 R.I.P. little one

  • I am crying from all sorts of feelings this video gave. Mostly though it's because of how beautiful it is

  • take this, the father is a genius

  • very bullet thing m8

  • cool

  • bala demais

  • Do you think scientist only wrap skins around their skeleton ? Of course not, they're aware of how much soft tissue dinosaurs had, you probably haven't seen the scientifically accurate depiction of dinosaurs, this video is misinforming and should be deleted!

    • Clearly someone didn’t watch the video

  • Big chickens but no wings

    • lol

  • Idk why it makes me sad to think of all the forgotten species we’ll never get to see… Maybe it’s because I’m tired but I want to see them :( It also makes me curious to see how genuinely close we are to the real things in scientists interpretations and such.

  • These videos have started becoming more political. Educational videos that end on calls to action are not educational videos; they are targeted promotions. Its even more nefarious when the sponsor, think-tank, or supporting companies are not mentioned anywhere. Like I'm not sure who sponsored this video but given the call to expand nature sanctuaries, I'd assuming its a eco think-tank of some sort. Again no disclaimers but its pretty obvious from the call to action at the end that the intention of this video was not educational.

  • Kurzgesagt really just told us to touch some grass

  • you guys on here cant handle the fact that you have been lied to your entire life. there were no dinos

    • it's like saying there are no trees , you've been lied to by the us government or something ... like literally there are more than 10,000 dino fossils found , how are you stil doubting dinos?

  • i have a theory that sauropods and ceratopsids are very aggresive, similiary to Zebras, Rhino's, Hippo's, Elephants, wildebeast ect. but i think the larger predators like allo's giga's and Trex's are more friendly.

  • The big bang is not the beginning of the universe as much as a seed is not the beginning of a tree. Time is cyclical not linear. It's mandatory we understand this as it is the basis for every other understanding of everthing esle.

  • Noticed there was a lack of the trademark kurzgesagt existential crisis moment, is everything alright mate?

  • Always enjoy these vids.
