Funny thing is, when you put the smallest things in the universe on a scale to the biggest things in the universe, humans are pretty much right in the middle of the scale.

Does it? Does the size of stars indicate age? Does the size of the universe indicate age?
Originally posted by joneschrThe Bible calls them "creative days." No indication that they were 24 hours periods as the Bible refers to a "day" as being different lengths of time. One of them refers to "a day as a thousand years" as was the case of Adam dying when he was over 900 years old or within the day that he ate of the fruit.

But then again, I think that time included god creating the heavens. So, perhaps he put an awful lot of attention to detail in the earth itself.
Which doesn't bode well for life on other planets.
