60 million years ago and on backward, the length of days on Earth were often more than 20 hours or more in length.

  2. I didn't know that. I wonder why that would be? Was Earth closer to the sun? Or is it because of some change in the atmosphere? Curious.

  4. Well Adam, one of your "followers" won't believe this.
    Over that period of time, things change.
    If your don't believe in climate change as is obvious by
    the current extreme changes in temperatures and islands in the
    Pacific Ocean just disappearing by water rising, you are in extreme
    mental denial - like WALL BUILDING TURNIP TOP!
