I agree with NoNukes.
Where are you getting this nonsense?

Tradition and heritage are all dead people's baggage. Stop carrying it!

He rejected the common sense notion of time (crowing roosters and twilight) and defined time as a mathematical entity that is unaffected by anything exterior. Yet no one has ever detected any time or measured any of its properties. There is not a shred of evidence that time has an actuality. It exists in our minds, as Solomon explained 3,000 years ago. Yet scientists actually use it as the independent variable in many of their formulas and laws.


So....you forgot your wife's birthday?
I don't think that excuse is going to work.
Try flowers instead.

I don't think it will get you out of paying that speeding ticket either.

I realise it is just one of many, many strange statements, but...

So then, do you actually have a reason for setting the limit at one million years?


foreveryoung writes:

4.56 billion years is a ridiculous amount of time...


foreveryoung writes:

The 1 million year figure comes from the absurdity...


So - your reason for choosing an age of 1 million years is simply your own personal incredulity.
In other words: you pulled that number from out of your butt.

That's all well and good but you and jar are the ones who are claiming that flying pigs exist.


And once again you sacrifice basic comprehension on the altar of denial and apologetics.

Re: question unanswered ...
godsriddle writes:

Then they extend their definition circularly by inventing other undetectable things like mass and energy.


Correct.
Energy from the sun is completely undetectable. We don't even know that the sun is there.
And due to undetectable mass, my car does 0 to 100mph instantly.

godsriddle writes:

The primary unit of measuring in science is - by international agreements - the second of time.


Correct.
An elephant weighs ~1000 seconds.
The distance from Ireland to Germany is ~20,000 seconds.
The average temperature of the sun is ~400 seconds (if we could detect it).

godsriddle writes:

very little of what scientists measure and mathematicate has reality.


Never a truer word has been made up.

godsriddle writes:

Allegedly a tiny bit of vacuum exploded and created everything out of nothing.


Correct.
That is exactly how the big bang is defined.
It is a verbatim quote of the universally accepted definition of the big bang.
You haven't got even a single element of the definition wrong.
It is perfect.

No....wait.
