When Time Became History - The Human Era

** UPDATE: Calendars are sold out on the US-Shop but you can still get them from the EU-shop: shop-eu.kurzgesagt.org/ **
For the fifth time, we present to you the Human Era Calendar for the year 12,021 - this time it is all about the journey of humanity, beginning tens of thousands of years ago, leading into the revolution of agriculture, to ancient high civilizations and the beginning of modern times, culminating in a vision for our future. You can get the limited Edition now until we sell out and then never again. As always the calendar features 12 illustrated pages printed on high quality paper in Europe and the US. And this year the cover is especially shiny. The calendar will look great on your wall and let you dream about a glorious future. We truly have come far as a species!

  • Those ancient humans who made this celebrated transition would be better thought of as _evolutionaries_ than as revolutionaries. Their choices may have been deliberate, as suggested in this essay. Their motivations, however, were more likely unconscious and ambiguous, and certainly in response to emotional triggers rather than intellectual analysis, and to necessity rather than esthetic,. Humans are still pretty much the same animal today. We'll deal with climate change when the ocean is lapping around our ankles--on Capitol Hill.

  • This just made me think a lot as why was I born in this era of time. Why wasnt I born way before or why wasnt I born way after in the future. I will be able to get a glimpse of the world we think is impossible but I guess I will never be able to see it. But the most important thing is being grateful that your living even tho your suffering. Goodluck to all of you people.

  • Or the populations that turned to agriculture were able to form larger societies with more numbers, therefore were both able and incentivized to conquer lands held by hunter-gatherer societies. We even have examples like this in more modern history, with the European conquest of the Americas and the displacement and assimilation of the indigenous peoples.

  • Love this type of content Kurgest. We start as a small group, dish ordered knowledgeless. Hunting became our first food source, every day was a struggle, moving groups of people from one side to another, fighting between groups was normal, until harvesting became our base. Kingdoms rise, order & faith became in despotism & fanatism, war became our way of life. But we survived. Philosophy created new forms of culture, science, etc. Until we mastered many thing. Now we have this stuff that you are reading thanks to the solid bases of tech as a result of centuries of constant discovery.

  • Dear people, do you know that Jesus is coming back soon? Are you ready? Today is the day of salvation, choose LIFE (Jesus) before it's too late. It won't be long now until the great tribulation of 7 years starts (the last 7 years of the world as it is now, and Jesus will save His followers before the great tribulation starts ), all the signs of the times are pointing towards this, and Jesus is your only hope for salvation, so I'm begging you to ask God to open your eyes and to consider these words from God's Word carefully: "Jesus said , “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6) "...if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13) "But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8) "Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, He was buried, He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15) For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9) Jesus Christ said : “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
