Also about perspective, earth, and billion years+4Time as we think of it is just really a matter of perspective. If you're thinking about it while considering the few billion years the earth has been around, a century or so seem like absolutely nothing. Now, if you're thinking about it in a "I'm think I'll go drive somewhere with some friends later" way, two or three hours feels like a long time. Switch the situations around, and a few hours sound insignificant while a century sounds like forever, amirite?

Also by VicZinc+66When you catch someone staring at you it is almost never a case of them thinking you are odd looking or repulsive, it is almost always that they find you alluring and are calculating their chances of mating with you, unless you are a waiter, then they just want another drink. Amirite?
Also about years, perspective, earth, humans, existence, and dinosaurs+954The Earth is thought to be 46 hundred million years old. It may be hard to wrap your brain around that number so lets say the Earth is just 46 years old. That means single-celled organisms arrived around 11 years, simple animals around 40, dinosaurs around 45, and humans...only 2 hours ago. This really puts human existence into perspective, amirite?

Earth has gone through thousands of extreme climate changes earthquakes, volcanoes blah blah blah Hell It's been bitchslapped by meteorites and its still been around for 4.5 billion years.

Also about life, earth, and billion years+43It is theoretically possible for the corona virus to completely wipe out humanity, only to continue evolving over the next billion years into multicellular life, more and more complex until it has become the next conscious advanced life form on earth. amirite?
Also about earth and billion years+315God created the universe in seven days. How do we know His days are the same length as our days? Our days are based on the Earth's rotation, but before the Earth, what did God base His days on? The older you get, the faster time seems to pass. Since God in infinite years old, His days could be two billion years long, thus He created the universe in 14 billion years. Religion and Science can go together, amirite?
