It is perhaps the greatest adventure story ever: how tiny pioneers came to settle on a seething molten ball of dust and gas, and slowly created a cosmic oasis teeming with a seemingly endless variety of life, from microscopic bacteria to whales the size of locomotives.
THE FOUR BILLION YEAR WAR explains how both conflict and cooperation have helped shape the species that today populate our world. And it profiles the winners and losers in this epic evolutionary contest — from the massive dinosaurs who disappeared long ago to the humble bacteria that have survived for billions of years virtually unchanged.
Nobody knows exactly where the seeds of life came from. Some believe the chemicals essential to life were brought here by meteorites, while others believe they arose naturally in the early oceans and atmosphere. But most researchers agree that carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen eventually linked up to form the basic molecules of life. Then, they slowly assembled into more and more complicated structures that could reproduce themselves. That set the stage for the blossoming of life.
At the heart of this amazing story is the quirky and chaotic process of evolution — the ability of organisms to change their behavior and body shape over time to adapt to changing circumstances. For instance, a flock of birds (let’s call them the “small beaks”) might face a changing climate that kills off its favorite food plant, which produces small, soft seeds that perfectly fit their small beaks. Luckily, due to random changes in their genetic codes, the flock produces a few newborn birds that have bigger beaks.

I am going to take a break for a couple of weeks because i am moving to a new house and i have a lot of things to do..I will be back with more great documentaries after that..
Friday is propably the last day that i am uploading before the break, maybe one day earlier it depends how things turn out.I would of appreciate to all out there to help seed thoose torrents,since i am not going to be able to seed myself. i would have my internet connection in two-three weeks. The laptop i am using for work can not reach up to reasonable upload speeds and i have to wait until the regular one is connected.
*** Thank you all for helping seeding thoose torrents so others can enjoy! ***
