    Imagine trying to get 14 billion candles on that pie.

    According to the Jewish calendar, the birthday of the universe (anniversary of the first day of creation) was just a few weeks ago. So this is a timely strip! :)

    Closer to 13.58 billion years it is.

    Age of universe according to NASA:
    13.77 ± 0.059 billion years

    So, I’m good with 14 Gya if we use two significant digits.

    Pie is simply one of the best words in the English language.

    Well, that’s one fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible. There are others. There are legitimate sources that state that dates and times before the Sixth Day are not to be understood as we know them today (which makes sense – what is a “day” before there is an Earth and Sun, for instance.) ~6000 years since the first civilized human beings is far more believable than 6000 years since the big bang. (Some date the oldest human artifacts to about 9000 years ago, but not much further than that.)

    I’ve also read a very good essay about how the 6 days of creation is not literally describing creation of the world, but how it is an allegorical description of God’s creation of prophecy in the world – how He took a merely biological creature (some early human – which could be descendant from apes, for whatever that is worth) and gave him a divine spirit capable of receiving prophecy, with Adam being the first.

    The Church may disagree with these theories, but the Church is not the final word on how to understand the Bible (unless you’re Catholic, of course.)

    For Hammy I prefer “Innocence is Bliss.” Not always so in this world, making Hammy all the more wonderful. Carry on, Hammy !

    Very nicely put, Shamino. As an illustration to one of your points, “days” are of different length, sometimes vastly different, for each planet depending on its distance from its star, orbit shape, etc. So assuming a 24-hour day in the period before the solar system was fully functional doesn’t work. Further, the Bible also says, in an illustrative way, that a thousand years with God is as one day for man. Just an illustration that time for the non-corporeal is very different from what we’re used to.

    @Ottodesu

    Sounds good to me. (They will probably be refining the number as time goes on.)

    @ailurophile17

    You can also add to “hekk” with DNA evidence that humanity itself is 200,000 years or more old itself.

    Has it ever occured to anyone that the universe is EXTREMELY older than that?

    Forget the theory of the “Big Bang”. What if the Universe has ALWAYS existed?
