    Time is a manmade concept.

    We can make some guesses at the age of the universe based on our current understandings - they mostly end up at around 12 or 13 billion years old, with a bit of variation in these figures.
    Any age estimate is dependent on a number of things and so as our understanding of the universe changes over time, we might expect our estimate of its age to change too, although I suspect it's somewhere around this age.

    What is time?
    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here. My view of time is that it is our sense of progression through our lives.
    There are many scientific aspects to our understanding of time - thermodynamics and entropy, special relativity and the rejection of absolute time, general relativity and the notion of wormholes allowing a sort of bypassing of normal time, and so on.

    I don't think so. Space, matter, and time are the three fundamental elements of Gods' creation.
    Each has three dimensions as well.

    don't say "God" and "creation" in the same sentence; now everyone will try to disprove his existence again 😕

    Forgive me for asking, but if you know that much, what the hell are you asking us for?

    Then about 8 billion years later the earth somehow got started? Maybe colliding stars left debris behind forming our solar system?

    As far as time is concerned I'm thinking of time as linear. From past to the future. But of course there is the idea of the eternal present. In that case time has no meaning and would seem to be nonexistent except as a concept, a way of measuring the passage of a series of moments.

    And I just don't think I know what I'm talking about. 😕

    You might if you weren't so determined not to hear anything that doesn't fit your preconcieved notions.
