    I have been asked many times how Christianity messes with science and I came to this obvious conclusion. I would like to see humans get together and come up with a calander that reflects human evolution. We need to decide when the first modern human was and call that day one. OR...we could decide when exactly the earth was formed.. Or when life first appeared.. Or..(your suggestions???)

    So you think that is an outrageous off the cuff suggestion? Not so fast godboys and godgirls...

    All of the great civilizations have had thier own calanders. We are as advanced as any civilization so I think it is high time we come up with our own calander reflecting that. Before and after Christ is bogus!

    What Huggy wants does not actually make a great argument for that kind of upheaval. Carry one whining.

    Correct you are sugar tits! I just decided 15 minutes ago. I have not worked up any great argument..I will work on that. It will have to happen sometime in the future when the non believers are in the majority. This is going to happen eventually.. probably not in our lifetime but what does it hurt kicking the idea around till then?

    Every change in how we view time has had it's awkward moment. The good news is that when we do get around to it ..And we will...It will be for the last time.

    That may not even be the standard. It would probably be easier mathmatically to establish the exact moment of the BIG BANG.

    Let's face it...when we finally meet ET.. And we will.. it/they will be more impressed with a civilization that doesn't keep time by make believe entities.

    Let's forget for a moment, beginning time with any calendar. Isn't it ironic that President Obama's presidency ends with the Mayan calendar? OH MY! That might be a good new start.
