    I don’t think it was too long ago because the Earth formed 4.5 billion years ago. That is less than 1/45 of Earth’s time. There is more than Earth, so things probably happened way before Earth.

  2. Nia says:

    No, that was not a long time ago in the big scheme of things. If you compare the earth which was formed 4.5 billion years ago to only 65 million years then it’s not a very long time ago.

  3. emanuel says:

    65 million years is a long time, even longer than waiting for the doctor, or the dentist, or a therapist, and lunch.

  4. Liana says:

    Yes, It is to humans and animals because they don’t live that long.

  5. izailya says:

    We as people think It was a real long time ago, But although It does seem like a long time it really isn’t considering the earth’s formation growth until today.

  6. Maliah says:

    It was a long time ago to people but other things that have been here for a while it doesn’t feel that long ago.

  7. Maggie says:

    To humans it seems like a long time since one human normally dies off within 0-100 years. If you think of how long the earth has been in the universe it doesn’t seem that long ago that dinosaurs died.

  8. Lukas says:

    No, because there are billions and billions of years the universe has existed. So 65 million years isn’t that much in the grand scheme of things

  9. Tianna says:

    65 Million years is a long time to us because we cant live even close to a quarter of that.But in reality its not a very long time.When you think about the fact that the earth has been around for billions of years.

  10. Nolan says:

    Yes and no it was a long time ago because it’s 65 million years and to a human’s concept of time it is. But to the expanse of the space and time continuum, it is not that long ago.

  11. ezra mr says:

    To everyone and everything alive today 65 million years is a
    very long time but considering how old this planet is,its not a very long time

  12. Mariah says:

    Yes, To humans and animals it is a long time. Because they don’t live that long.

  13. LONI says:

    Yes and no, because if we took time from a humans scale, then it would be a log time ago, but if we did from an animals, it would be kinda short. So like if you asked a shark with the ability to speak and had information about their old ones, they’d say something like “Yeah dude! They were kinda ugly, but a pterodactyl was my great great, something great grandpas buddy who gave him food from the land! Too bad they died from [redacted]..”, since they’ve been around for such a long time.

  14. Joey says:

    To people it was a long time ago but to the earth it was not.

  15. shellbee says:

    65 million years ago seems like a long time ago and it is. Yes it is a long time ago but to some people it doesn’t seem like a long time ago but 65 million is a big number.

  16. Katrina says:

    No it wasn’t a long time ago because if the earth formed 4.5 billion years ago the dinosaurs extinction would be much more closer to today’s time on a timeline. For humans it might be considered a long time ago because we usually only live a few years after 100. But to earth obviously it didn’t happen a long long time ago.

  17. Jakai says:

    Honestly I think that its a long time because we humans only live for about 130 years and 65 million years would be tons of centuries

  18. calvin says:

    I don’t think it was not that long ago because people have been on the earth for 300,000 years ago. End the world is 4.543 billion years old.

  19. carter says:

    In human life span, it was a really long time but in the earth’s time or how long it has been here, it was a short time.

  20. olivia says:

    Yes, we feel it was a long time ago and we think it was a long time ago but to objects like mainly rock it was not.

  21. Tashauna says:

    Yes, because humans haven’t lived for more than 100 years. As for humans it is quite long but not for the planet.

  22. Ezra m says:

    i only lived 13 years and i think 13 years is a small number compared to 65 million

  23. trinity says:

    i lived 14 years and is a less number compared to 65 million years ago

  24. Anthony says:

    its a long time ago because 1 million years ago is a long time but then 1 mil times 65 is a long time
