    Amber is amazing stuff! It can preserve organisms whole, and essentially freeze them in time, and the specimens we’ve found in it so far range from amazing to downright bizarre. Here are six of the coolest things we’ve found trapped in amber.

While watching birds in my backyard, I had an epiphany. Watch the initial jump of a bird, closest living relative to dinosaurs. I believe feathers evolved from this escape method. The higher and longer the duration of the jump would be advantageous. Feathers would have helped both of these.

Shouldn't you call these plants "insectivorous"? Since they live symbiotically with the insects that actually digest the trapped prey, they wouldn't survive without these insects. It's not like mammals are helping this plant.

Ironically, we're as positive as we can be that the Plague was a rodent-based bacteria, not a human-based one. The Plague just happened to get into humans when exotic rats were brought over to mainland Europe. That's why this plague was so short: it burned through the exotic rat population and couldn't sustain itself.

So, something similar to the bubonic plague was found in a flea that lived 20million years ago. It may have very well been the ancestor of the bubonic plague that wiped out most of Europe. Given that, why is it soooo hard for some people to believe that a virus can evolve? @_@ Some keep believing Covid-19 is some sort of lab experiment but arent viruses allowed to evolve just like the rest of us?

I hope you'll take this as constructive criticism: I've just watched several of the SciShow videos, and although they were interesting, there was something about them that was really putting me off, but I wasn't sure what it was. I've finally identified it as those quick cuts that almost sound like the speaker is interrupting himself. Having less pause in the cuts than the speaker would normally put between sentences throws off the cadence and just seems pointlessly rushed.

I think it's stupid how scientists can find a specimen of an animal like a Dino bone or the bird with a long toe and say it must be a new species, how many genetic abnormalities are there in the human race that cause all sorts of changes to physical characteristics. We're not going around saying you're a different species of human because you're feet are big and mine are small. And even if it is a new species of bird, you shouldn't be able to jump to that conclusion unless you have more than one specimen and even then it's not 100%

someone should do a study.... We always here how stuff survives long periods through fossilization, and we are sold the idea of amber doing something similar (thanks to fictional nonsense in Jurrassic Park), but where is the scientific proof that amber survives for millions of years like fossilization does?.... It doesn't exist. Also, the we are sold the notion that fossilization takes millions of years, thus, anything that is fossilized must be at least millions of years old, but that isn't true. You can see for yourself by going to the petrified forests in Arizona, where you can see half-fossilized wood and sawn tree stumps that are still rooted in the ground. The conditions of minerals and heat in that area are right to produce wood that is fossilized one the bottom, but still ordinary dead wood on the top with a line where the process continues and transitions from wood into fossil. Just more science lies. Amber cannot survive for millions of years, and the only way to prove that is to live for as long as the process takes to see it for yourself. But therein is the magic in science's lies... You cannot see much of the reality, you are spending your time going to work and taking care of your families. You rely on them to give you the doctrines of science, so you generally don't see for yourself whether anything they say could possibly be true. They count on your ignorance to perpetuate their science cult religion and feed you made-up fiction that sounds interesting, but which has no bearing in reality. It's called job security!

Every time he rattles off these “millions of years ago” dates remember this.....they are using circular reasoning for these dates....the fossils are dated by the rock layer they are found in but the rocks are dated by the fossil types in the layer...get it?.....so they are guessing because there is a constant attempt to remove GOD from everything and deny GOD created everything....and there is ample evidence to show the Earth is very young.
