Interesting infographic about keeping in life in perspective. Only thing I didn’t like was that so much of the later graphics were not labelled as “theory” but stated as facts.


It’s Visual.ly, not Visua.ly :) But otherwise cool graphic. Makes you think about how insignificant we are.


Very good; very informative, thank you…


Interesting way of looking at time. A few quibbles with a few things, but overall it’s OK.

It was amazing read till it displayed a theory as being fact that humans were diverged from apes.Do you know that Darwinism was falsified by the very students of Darwinism.


I felt the same way, but that’s really the opinion of the infograph’s creator.
