The most significant advent was the evolution of cyanobacteria or blue-green algae, around billion years ago, which generated oxygen and changed the chemistry of first the oceans and then the atmosphere. For most of Earth history, therefore, life has played an ever-increasing role in modifying how the Earth works. This book describes comprehensively the evolution of the earth, from the time of the big bang to the present, and in the final chapter there are short and long term forecasts of the future and what we can do to influence it (2 billion years on, whatever we do, the earth will be swallowed by an expanding sun).Cited by:

This third edition includes 30% new material and, for the first time, includes full color images in both the print and electronic versions. Introduction to the History of Life []. It is very interesting that life began from simple chemical molecules. Starting from the formation of the universe from simple elements such as hydrogen and helium billion years ago, until now, with Homo sapiens evolving and trying to expand its colony to a new planet, there is one great history of life. To understand those sequences in. Creationist Views of the Origin of the Universe, Earth, and Life. Many religious persons, including many scientists, hold that God created the universe and the various processes driving physical and biological evolution and that these processes then resulted in the creation of galaxies, our solar system, and life on Earth.
