If you distribute the time from the Big Bang to the present in a single year then-
January 1st -The Big Bang occurred. January 10th -The first Star was born. January 13th - First small galaxy. March 15th - The Milky way formed but not the Sun. August 31st - The Sun was born (4.5 billion years ago) The
Earth was born from a disk of gas and dust orbiting the new born Sun.
Repeated collisions produced a glowing ball.The Earth was quite
unstable in the beginning. But
Sept 21st - Life began (3.5 billion years ago)

microbes. They invented SEX or Sexual reproduction.
December 17th - Life came from water to land. December 28th - The first flower blossomed.
am December 30th - An asteroid hit earth and wiped out Dinosaurs that
could endanger the survival of Homo sapiens on earth (60 million years
ago) For the first time in the history of the universe the conditions were just good enough for Humans.
11:59:46 pm December 31st
- All of the recorded history occupies these last 14 seconds. We
learned how to cultivate crops,taming animals, Astronomy,
Mathematics,Paintings.About 13 seconds ago we invented writing. Moses was born 7 seconds ago. Buddha - 6 seconds ago. Jesus - 5 seconds ago. Muhammad - 3 seconds ago.
A second ago we discovered that Earth is not the center of the universe And just when that second was about to finish we reached the Moon. Voyager 1 crossed our solar system.We discovered that our universe started with Big Bang (January 1st).
Every person you have ever heard of, met, loved, hated and kissed lives in those 14 seconds.
