People have been trying to picture how, when, where and why everything in our known world started. There is a strong belief that if a subject can be broken down to its core components then there is a chance that its secrets can be examined. Time is one of the measurements used to try and break information up into understandable chunks. These chunks can then be examined in detail and then reinserted into the puzzle, that is existence. This website seeks to use timelines as a marker on the map of the development of life on our planet.
