Quote# 2234

So if someone says that the universe is 14 billion years old, what exactly are they saying? Are we saying the earth has done 14 billion laps of the sun? No because the people who say the universe is 14 billion years old also say that for a lot of this time our solar system wasn't even formed.

Maybe I'm missing something but why is this quote here?

Correction, 4.5 billion years. And only the inept and misinformed say the solar system hasn't been around as long as the Earth.

Oooh, so he thinks we think that the Earth has been around for 14 billion years, but not the rest of the system?

Otherwise, this quote does not belong here.

The universe is 14 billion years old, or thereabouts. And the earth is 4.5 billion years old. The time equivalent to one orbit of the Earth around the sun (as presently measured) remains the same whether the Earth exists at a particular point in time or not.

Here's a good example for you, Judge. Your profile doesn't give your age, but let's say for the sake of argument that you are 30 years old. You can measure time against your own age, but does that somehow mean that years didn't exist before you were born?

The idea that time would stop if the Earth weren't orbiting the sun is kind of funny.

It's just like your bible. Only when we say years, we mean years.

I think you'll find the whole Earth-before-stars thing is one from your own team, jackass.

Actually it's 13.7 +/1 0.1 billion for the universe. Earth, not so much.
