Welcome to my Metazoic site! This site discusses the existence of the creatures to come along after humans will be extinct. I first became interested in a world after man when I acquired my first copy of Dougal Dixon's After Man: A Zoology of the Future in 1992. However, I unwittingly created creatures that did not exist from the time I was about 8 years old. But it was after I obtained a copy of that book (now a collector's item) that I decided to take these same creatures I created as a child and make them more realistic in an evolutionary sense. Though it may be hard for a lot of us to grasp, humans will soon become extinct. One of the biggest factors of how this will happen is the current overpopulation rate. Which is why I don't contribute to the population. I created this world with little more than mammals fulfilling all ecological niches with the help of some friends. I even gave the era of the age after man a name, I called it the Metazoic, derived from the words for "After-era" (Meta, meaning after, and zoic meaning era). We are now in the Cenozoic era. To view all the animals I have created since I began this project, you can go to the "Meet the Mammals" section of this site. To discuss your own ideas about what you think will happen in the future world, and share your ideas with others, please feel free to leave a comment.
One more thing, some of you may find this site quite offensive, and you have a right to your own opinion. But please respect my right to have an opinion too. I'm not saying there is no GOD, I believe it was HIM who got the ball rolling. But I believe after that, evolution took over. There is so much more evidence of evolution than there is of creation. Even that going on right under our noses. Other than that, enjoy yourself and visit our many links.

The End of Time Drawing Near

Well, my time on this computer is almost up. It is a rented machine and I have decided because of this recession that I cannot make the payments anymore, so it has to go back. I will be giving this computer back to the store on the 3rd of March. Sad as that is, but I will be coming back. Probably not until May or June. One of those months. Just wanted to let my loyal readers know this beforehand.

I wanted to find someone to take over the posts here until I can return, but the only person I really trust to keep on the subject told me he doesn't really respect bloggers. So I won't ask him. As for commenting, I'm probably going to have to fix it so that comments are posted immediately, instead of having to be approved by me. So any commenters who are reading this, if you want to say something, and you don't want it read by others, do not post it here. Instead, send it to me through e-mail. I can maybe try to get online about once a week at the library computer. But no promises there that I will be typing up anything new. The library only allows 1 hour per day per person. I know it sucks!

I am sorry for any inconvenience. I was trying to complete at least another family or size chart for my website. The problem is that I had to F-disk my computer, and when my computer went out, so did my site builder. And since this is going back to the store, I really don't want to download it on here again. So I will be working on all that when I get my own computer hopefully by early summer. I will however, try to get on to answer e-mails. I must let you all know I cannot promise I will answer each one right away, since I have many other places online that I like to visit. My hour at the library will be pretty much used up. In the meantime, until I can get my new computer, I will be working on more families for my website, and more size-charts. By the time I get my new computer, I should have quite a lot to put up. You all will see it. But again, don't expect it to come every day. I can only go to the library once a week. To even try and get there daily would be an impossible task, since I have a house to run too.

Well, this is NOT the end of Metazoica! Like the dawn of time, I will be back!

*****************EDIT to add*************************

Metalraptor will be taking over this blog while I am gone. He has agreed to keep it active. I will be giving him full privileges on March 1st.

Good Luck to you, I feel things will get much, much worst before they get "better". We may see years, decades of very "interesting" times.

I feel that way too Raymond. We're in for another depression, I've felt it in my guts all along.

Dear Raymond and all the other readers of Metazoica,

This is Metalraptor, the guy whose going to be taking over the function of Metazoica in March. I would like to say I am excited to be able to post here, and am interested in hearing your thoughts and comments. (I love comments, by the way)

Metazoica, once again I would like to say how sorry I am at your loss of a computer. Hopefully you can get one up and running this summer, and by then you will have numerous new things to add for Metazoica.

As for me, I have to get my first posts ready. Be prepared for giant killer pigs, the possibility of gigantic birds, and who's most likely to survive the next big extinction.

-Metalraptor

I cannot wait to see what you have when ever I can get to a computer. I'll think about things I may want to add when I can as well.

These giant birds and pigs- are they fossil animals or are they a new addition to the Metazoic?

This is Metalraptor...

The killer pigs are fossil animals. The giant birds are just some speculations regarding...well, can't tell you there, spoiler alert...
