When Time Became History - The Human Era

Birt 6 okt 2020
** 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!

  • Dangit that made me cry a little

  • this is half of the sapien book

  • Pebble‎s

  • 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.

  • 7:08 maybe they were part of peta or sumthin

  • Kurzgesagt make me feel proud to be human, even after the devastating news of everyday

  • you're extremely optimistic to think we'll still exist in 12,000 years

  • 10:29 less exciting than 12,020. "Exciting" isn't the word I'd use.

  • this channel earns my respect

  • Now i wanna be immortal so i can see evolution

  • Hunter-gatherers were probably more hungry than well-fed, the supply was very erratic, either you had abundance or nothing, and same as with the wild animals - when the population grew, it was in next-generation reduced by famine because they have killed all that was to kill.

  • *What'll happen if CHINA was to be DEMOCRATIZED ??*

  • Hey Robot Generation, if you read this, your metal "brain" is stinky haha

  • 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.

  • can you do a vid on the largest objects in the universe?

  • legit how can you dislike this video

  • Bold of you to assume there will be trees in the future when the deforestation is so high right now.

  • BEST YOU TUBE SHOW EVER AND THE BEST VOICE ON YOU TUBE!

  • 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. (Matthew @) Please check out JD Farag ISchats Channel and watch the Bible prophecy updates, very interesting for these days!!

    • Jesse, 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.

    • Yuval Noah Harari: 'Hold my Sapiens!'

  • This isn't the first time we have done this

  • The moment you are reading this comment will be past

  • Really good vid

  • Your content is inspirational. Thanks.

  • Ngl i shared this channel with my grandma

  • Do a video on brain chips

  • I'm pretty sure it's just Hunter Gathers not being as effective at reproduction as Farmers. Even if the farmers life is arguably more painful and sad they definitely had and kept more kids on average then Hunter Gathers. Kinda like how the bird with the longer beak gets the deeper grub, and the ones with the shorter beaks get nothing. evolution marches on.

  • "Hopefully in another 12,000 years our descendants will look back on us today with gratitude for the amazing world they are able to inhabit" Press x to doubt

  • Super cool! I'm inspired by your videos!

  • I am going to share this video.

  • the world is in chaos while murica is still busy doing side quests

  • Kurzgesagt: Humans are a complex being who collectively evolved from hunter gatherers to farming. Me: humans dance funny

  • except for the Koranderthals...........they are stuck at 600AD. But oh my god, here we have the ridiculous grain/seeds theory.......................that people thousands of years ago selectively bred useless grass seeds, with no meaningful results for hundreds of generations until they had grain seeds that actually had productive calories...........what utter bollocks. The sumerian history clearly explains where grains, and mankind came from. Homo sapiens is not millions of years old..............its only about 200,000 years, go read the human genome project results that align with the sumerian history.

  • Yuval Noah Harari: 'Hold my Sapiens!'

  • I didn't sure our next generations could survive in this dirty, hot world

    • Joshia, 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.

  • Bought the calendar before they sold out. I'm probably going to make it a yearly thing. I love this channel.

  • and also 3:39 that's my country Indonesia

  • how do you know that our ancestors use old technologies and have a same life? do you ever met them? how do you said that we started from 2 million and 80.000 generations ago? do you ever count them?

    • It's all about evidence we found, really. Like skeletons of old humanoids or ancient caves with really old tools that was made by people. If you consider the genus Homo as humans, then yes we did start about 2 million years ago, Homo Sapiens is two hundred thousand years old.

  • Such garbage
