The Earth was formed about 4.5 billion years ago. At the time, it’s shape was different from what it is today. After a very, very long time, the Earth was prepared to host the primitive forms of life. It took 2 billion years for the Earth’s atmosphere to be provided with enough oxygen. Now, the biosphere was formed. At first, the simple forms of life, as worms, jellyfish, and starfish came to existence. Millions of years later, dinosaurs stepped on the Earth and then, it was time for birds and mammals to emerge.
