What percentage of land on earth is dominated by humans?
29% of Earth is land mass. Of that 29% humans occupy less than 1% of that area. Of the remaining 28% about 40% is pure wilderness. 14% is true desert and 15% has desert like characteristics. 9% is Antarctica. Most of the remaining 22% are agricultural areas. There may be other areas with a human footprint of some kind.

To ask philosophical questions Because if humans weren't around, there would be no one to ask What is the meaning of life? Answer There are human's on Earth because of a semantic identification of ourselves as humans and this planet as Earth. Silicon based fluorine breathers on a planet circl…ing Sirius could ask a very similar question about themselves. The answers for both questioners would be the same: We evolved here, we are suited for the conditions here (not the other way around) We serve no higher purpose than to exist. Answer Because Earth is the only planet on our solar system where the temperature differences between hot and cold is the lowest; therefore life evolves. It was made for us! Isaiah 45 v 18 "For thus says the Lord, the one who created the heavens God himself that formed the earth and made it; he has established it he created it not in vain he formed it to be inhabited :I am the Lord and there is none else. Apart from indicating that the earth was formed to be inhabited the Bible also tells us that humans were given the job of caring for and controlling the earth and its creatures and environment. This is part of what some call the 'dominion mandate' found in Genesis 1 v 28 (see also Psalm 8:6) In connection with the above we note the following environment on the planet earth. 1. Water mostly in liquid form and in the right proportion for optimum climate. 2. Atmosphere of Oxygen and Nitrogen in the right proportions. 3. Renewing Cycles for both water and oxygen/nitrogen. This is interesting to say the least as both of these relate to life. Earth resources not related directly to life are non-renewable. 4. Exactly right distance from Sun . 5. Stable sun compared to others. Life would be 'fried' by massive solar flares. 6. Axis tilt to give seasons. 7. Space exploration has demonstrated how incredibly inhospitable everywhere else in our solay system really is. The first four conditions are not found anywhere else. Is this all sheer coincidence? Or could Isaiah 45 v 18 be true? Answer The Bible says that just as this generation of humans does not remember the generation before us, so we will not be remembered by the generation after us. I think that by 'generation' it means that there was some kind of species of humans here before us that were totally wiped out. It also says that our generation of humans will be completely wiped out as well. The word generation means an entire set of humans covering tens of thousands of years. But then again maybe I am wrong in my interpretation, it is just a guess. From all observations, there is no reason. However many religions have tried (and some still are trying) to justify our existence with varying results. Answer: the universe is strange. how could something possibly come from nothing? in my opinion God made the universe then scientist's theories come in to the equation... i.e. gases turning into planets and what not. on the other hand, from a religious point of view, how did God come into existence? I'm not sure i should be questioning the almighty. i suppose this sort of stuff should best be left alone, we as humans will never know fully how the universe was created or how it works. To worship him in spirit and in truth. Answer Why not? Good question and arguably the most asked; What is the meaning and purpose of life. First: People are here to be proven whether they will choose good or evil. That is why mankind have a God given, and universal right to be free to choose; it's called free agency. Second: To obtain a body of flesh and blood; Third: to gain experience. We shouted for joy at the chance of coming here. Job 38:7 lyrically expresses this profound truth.> ( Full Answer )
Asking how did humans get on the Earth makes it sound like we were dropped here by some Fedex system in space. We evolved from preexisting life forms through the process of natural selection or evolotuion. Our lineage back to the earliest life forms is trackable and accepted by credible scientists,… every year evidence surfaces which makes the assertions and understanding of the process of our evolution clearer.

By the most common criteria used (which includes swamps and seasonal dry land), the Earth has a land surface of 144,940,000 km 2 , which is about 29.2% of the total surface area of the planet.
About 25% to 35% of continental land mass covers the Earth. This is because about 75% to 70% of water covers the Earth. You can subtract 75 or 70 by 100 to find out.
The world is about 71% water and 29% land. Roughly 10.6% of the world's land is considered arable.
The percentage of land in India in terms of total landscape of earth is 2.3% , India is the 7th in terms of land area which is preceded by 1. Russia (11.5%), 2. Canada (6.7%), 3. China (6.4%), 4. USA (6.5%), 5. Brazil (5.7%) and 6. Australia (5.2%)

I believe the 3 most dominant gases of our atmosphere are nitrogen, carbon dioxide and methane
The bible tells us that God made Adam from the dust of the earth. I think that the word "Dust" was used to indicate that the earth contains all that is required to make a human being as all of the atoms (Dust) were brought together. It would not be hard for God to command certain atoms to join toget…her to form the body of a man. The real question is how was Eve made. The scriptues say that the Lord took a rib from the side of Adam and made woman. This is of course figurative. It is this writers opinion that God made Eve in the same way as He made Adam. The rib sugests that they stood side by side in all things. Both Adam and Eve received their spirits so that they became living things. After being cast out of the Garden of Eden they had children and so began the pupulation of the world. Remember that the blood line was pure at that time and brother and sister could mate without fear if it having any affect upon their children as it would today. ( Full Answer )
There is NO dominant race. Everyone is equal! -Scientifically this is wrong, in a relationship the man is more likely to have the more dominant gene, for example a white man and latin woman are more likely to have a white child, less likely to have a latin child or a mixed race. Mixed races are v…ery less likely to have the strong gene. ( Full Answer )
Because Earth happened to meet all of the criteria necessary for supporting life which eventually evolved into humans. Now that we are here we will continue to reproduce until we no longer can. To say that we are here to worship a god is to assume that there is one. Scientific answers please, save t…he spiritual ones for the people who are asking why there is life in general and not asking about a species and a specific location. ( Full Answer )
Humans didn't land on the Earth (except, of course, those that leftvia spacecraft and returned a few days later)
face shape...round and long = oval hair texture...curly and straight = wavy ear size...large and small = medium
First appeared about 500 000 years ago, but only became the dominant species about 10 000 years ago.
Dinosaurs have dominated earth for 150 million years ago. This is the reason why they are so successful.
No. While you may not think about it, Bacteria is actually on top of the food chain, and has the biggest population of 5,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or five million trillion trillion estimated. Even besides that, some animals in some categories beat man.
This question does not work: atmosphere is volume, and land and sea area is just that, area. You cannot compare one to the other. Perhaps what you mean to ask is the ratio of the atmosphere's volume to the Earth's volume. The Earth's radius is around 6350 km, and the official edge of space in 100… km above sea level. The Earth's volume = Ïr 2 = 3.14 x 6350 x 6350 = about 126,600,000 km 3 . The Earth's and the atmosphere's volume = Ïr 2 = 3.14 x 6450 x 6450 = about 130,600,000 km 3 . The atmosphere's volume = 130,600,000 - 126,600,000 = about 4,000,000 km 3 . The ratio = 4,000,000 Ã· 126,600,000 = about 0.032. Or if you want that as the atmosphere as a fraction of the earth and atmosphere together: 4,000,000 Ã· 130,600,000 = about 3/100. That as a percentage is 3%. ( Full Answer )
No, Earth is a planet (dirt could also be called earth). People (such as you and I) are humans.
The Northern hemisphere is about 60.7% water and 39.3% land. The Southern hemisphere is about 80.9% water and 19.1% land.
Vision because 70% of all the sensory receptros in the body are in the eyes, and nearly half of the cerebral cortex is involved in some aspect of visual processing.
70 percent or more is water. but actually land is under water so i depends on the actuall questions.
only about 3 % is fresh water and less than 1 percent of that is available the rest is frozen in glaciers etc
There is no answer. We have no idea how many animals live on land or in the oceans. However, we have identified more animals on land than in the oceans (theyr'e quite a bit easier to find).
This depends on what you mean with 'human use'. But it is estimated that 2.75 percent of all water on Earth is fresh water (which I believe is what you mean). Most of that however (2.05) is frozen in glaciers. A further 0.68 percent is ground water, with only 0.011 percent being surface water (in …lakes and rivers). ( Full Answer )
Approximately 10 % of Australia is inhabited. Although much of the land is used for livestock and farming, this land is not actually inhabited. There are vast tracts of land which are completely isolated from any settlement.
Land use in Australia can be broken down into the followingapproximate divisions: 62%: Agricultural land and livestock grazing 16%: Minimal use, meaning reserved, vacant or crown land 13% native title and protected areas, including indigenous uses 6.5%: nature conservation 2%: Forestry 0.5%: built …environment, including both urban and periurban areasand open-cut mines.

About 30% is actual land. This does not include the polar ice caps since those are just icebergs floating, but does include the mainland of Antartica.
No, the water is dominant in the Southern Hemisphere. Most land mass is in the Northern Hemisphere.
land is 28.888888888889 percent and the water is 71.111111111111. This is the exact percentage. Due to the Quran, the water (Bahar) word is mentioned 32 times, since land (Bar) is mentioned 13 times. So, 32 + 13 = 45 32 / 45 = 0.71111111111111 x 100 = 71.111111111111% 13 / 45 = 0.28888888888889 x …100 = 28.888888888889% 71.111111111111 + 28.888888888889 = Exactly 100%. So this is the exact percentage of the earth. Good luck. ( Full Answer )
Depends on how you think of it. If you are looking for a straight forward yes or no answer, than you will not receive one because it's a matter of either people look at it as facts or opinions on this matter. If you are talking about a specific region in which males are more dominant than the female… gender, than look at politics. While a lot of people are struggling to accept the fact that the president is mixed, I don't think many people are going to accept a female president any time soon. After about 40 or 50 years women are still not as equal as society would like to think. There is always discrimination when employing females as well as the amount a female gets paid for doing the same job as a male. ( Full Answer )

Dinosaurs dominated the land from 200 Million Years Ago to about 66-66 Million Years Ago.
Dogs were thought to be the most dominant after humans because of the size of the species and the tactics of its species.then again the more less dominant species of prim mates were thought to rule the earth, but they're only in parts of the planet as in dogs are spread across the globe.

As they are "medieval" castled, they were built to dominate the land in "medieval" times - that is in the Middle Ages, a period of European history encompassing the 5th to the 15th centuries, from the collapse of the Roman Empire to the beginning of the Renaissance.
Some parts of the Earth's surface have been affected more profoundly by human activities than other parts, but all parts have been affected to some degree, so my answer is 100%. Don't forget, global warming affects the entire globe (to give just one example of how humans have affected the Earth). Va…rious forms of air pollution and water pollution have penetrated to the most remote parts of the world. Nothing is entirely unaffected. ( Full Answer )
Everyone has some sort of learning style that works best for them, so this would be 0% -- around 65% of people are visual learners, 30% are auditory learners, and about 5% are kinesthetic/tactile learners.
Only a tiny fraction of it is. Most of earth's surface is desert or tundra, and as such is largely unoccupied. Mumbai has 30,000 people per square kilometer. Karachi, Pakistan has about 20,000. Sapporo, Japan, about 5000. Denver, Colorado has only 1,500 people per square km. The median of the wor…ld's 125 largest cities is Manchester, UK, at about 4000 people per square mile. We'll use that for our average. There are a little over 7 billion people on earth now. Using the average of 4000/km2, that works out to 1.75 million square kilometers (675 thousand square miles) of "urban" landscape, which would include roads, bridges, etc. Approximately 150 million square km of earth's surface is land, so 1.75/150 = just a little over 1% covered by human construction. This estimate seems reasonable. ( Full Answer )
In science Humans Started living on Earth 200,000 years ago and Dominated it 10,000 years.

That depends on how long ago humans developed. Assume 100,000 years, the earth is about 4,000,000,000 years old. So % = 100,000 / 4,000,000,000 x 100 = 0.0025 %
