The church can so suck and egg. They are proved wrong over and over and over again. All they keep doing is apoligizing for their wrongs but they dont do anything else about it.

"Until recently, astronomers estimated that the Big Bang occurred between 12 and 14 billion years ago. To put this in perspective, the Solar System is thought to be 4.5 billion years old and humans have existed as a species for a few million years. Astronomers estimate the age of the universe in two ways: 1) by looking for the oldest stars; and 2) by measuring the rate of expansion of the universe and extrapolating back to the Big Bang; just as crime detectives can trace the origin of a bullet from the holes in a wall."

How could the earth be this old when the universe when the Big band occured 12-14 billion years ago, AND the solar system is 4.5 billions years old. So the earth floated around in nothing before the solar system came around. What next, a theory stating that the earth created the rest of the universe? or that "god" created the earth before anything else?

was anyone ever taught that it was Lilith and Adam, before Eve and Adam?


I wasn't taught (cause my dad's an athiest and a biologist and wouldn't have any of it, although Primary 1 and 2 certainly tried, then I'd come home and dad would tell me not to pay any attention to the teacher's fantasies... but anyway) but what I know about Lilith mainly comes from watching Evangelion..again... and again.. and again

According to Eva, Lilith and Adam were ... well I don't want to spoil the story, but we were the children of them, not Eve 's and in 2016 Rei Ayanami who is half-human, half-Lilith will merge with Lilith and bring around the next stage of evolution... or rather armagedon


Edit: Oh.... 1000 posts...cool

Read my post carefully. It is 4,758,976,547 years is actually very close to 4.5 billion years, or 4,500,000,000 years, in French and American system. In English system then 4.5 billion years is going to be 4,500,000,000,000 years (and there is absolutely no problem for earth being 4,758,976,547 years old). So which one are we using now?

Oh.. one more thing.. before you attack any other post, make sure that the post is not meant to be a joke wink2.gif

I was joking when I said that the earth is 4,758,976,547 years, 4 months and 16 days old. And you asked me how the earth could be that old. tongue.gif
