besides chemicals in the atmosphere. I might add that possibily since we add a second to the atomic clock the Earth rotated faster. And instead of a 24 hour day- Earth had maybe had a 20 hour day.
And Gravity might have been different- Stronger maybe.
And if that's true then dinosaur's might have been even stronger then we realize.
A T-Rex running at 37 miles an hour then, might be 45 mph today.
60 million years from now we might be walking on air. well anyway...
Rod, i didnt think gravity had any effect on a 100% vertical path, In physics we was doing gravity/weight/mass equations and one of the examples was a lorry not braking and slowing down on a bed of stones, using the friction to stop its movement, and in the next example we added that it was on a rather vertical slope and gravity had a impact.
But I never thought gravity affected vertical forces.

So, I'm doing a report for physics, and I have been presented with a question...
What was the early atmosphere of the Earth like? As I understand it, the early atmosphere was without oxygen, to allow the development of life. Is this still the prevalent school of thought? What was it like? Was the Earth's atmosphere really as hellish as it sounds?
Any imput would be very welcome. The report is due at the end of this week, today being Monday.
Life began before--life is--above logic--beyond logic--no need for logic
life is not molecules--they are selling you a bill of goods
life is love in a manner of speaking
life is nothing and
life is all
fight the good fight
never give in
