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.

Having Fun With The New Site

As you all may know by now, the new Meet The Mammals section is up. All the bugs haven't been worked out yet, but it is up now. I'm fiddling around with the new features. My web designer is still trying to make it perfect. He promises it will be done today. I can only hope! I haven't been back this morning, but I will periodically add new species to the list. Even I cannot wait to see what it will look like. This time, each family counts as a category. The categories can be found on the right sidebar. I can no longer have the species listed as "large grazers", "small grazers" or "pentadactyls", etc. Now, the families just show up on the side individually. Hope you all like the new feature!

I am still thinking of putting up a "members only" area. But you have to donate to set up an account. That will be the area that has the best features though. Such as short films about some of the animals (I will not be putting these films on YouTube, so don't look for them there), video games, maybe even a rating system where you can rate each of the animals, and comment if you'd like. The donation will be a one-time thing, not a monthly or annual thing. But I will have it fixed so that only people who donate a certain amount can create an account. Perhaps a $10 donation will get you in. But that comes later. I've even been thinking about this video game, been thinking about it since 1998. I thought it could be set up like a safari, and the users ride in a car, which breaks down and they have to get back to the safety hut. Or something to that effect. On the way back, there are a bunch of mammals (Metazoic-style) that tries to destroy the sight-seers, and the user has to try and escape them. I think that's a cute idea. But that comes later.

So far, I've worked on a few anteaters. I will be working on more species as time goes on. I will also put up the new checklist. I just added some more species to the list. You can download it later on in the Meet The Mammals section. I think everyone will like the new features. Meantime, just enjoy!

I'm still in the middle of working on that group :x I just took an extended break. It should be done tonight though.

What family do you plan to do after the anteaters

Timgal said...

Not sure. Maybe the true lemurs? But I still have to scan some of those in.
