Your life vs. age of the Universe

Universe is 13.73 billion years old.

Let's compare it to human's life. Let's say you will live 100 years. That means Universe is already 137,300,000 times older than you will ever be.

Let's try to visualize that.

Your life (100 years) = 1 pixel.
Age of the universe = 137,300,000 pixels.

Time in the universe when you was not born yet will be all the black pixels. Your life will be that one white pixel in the end. For full effect, try scrolling down using your mouse wheel. Long way to go, eh?


THIS IS JUST A DRAFT, I WILL EDIT THIS AND ADD THE IMAGE IN THE NEXT 5 MINUTES

    Not everyone who is religious is an idiot about their beliefs. Some people... Most people, actually, don't believe every word of the bible.

    I'm all for the mocking of religion, but, if you're going to do it, don't make yourself (and other atheists by extension) look like a tool while doing so.

    You know, I wouldn't doubt it if this is completely off, and the black space is like 5 million times bigger. But our lives were the same sized dot.

    seriously though, this would be more dramatic if we had something to watch while scrolling down with our mouse wheel. Suggestions... time demarcation, historic references like when Jesus rode on dinosaurs, or you could hit the easy button and just add porn :-)

    no if you are truly religious you are not bound to belive in the bible tho you should. you just have to belive in jesus and that he died for your sins.

    I believe the universe is 6000 years old. This is all about evolution.

    It seems so insignificant pixel value plus all those who live today in this land (6,000 million) and all who passed by here (about 100,000 million) multiplied by the historical average life expectancy (about 30 years), we would white image about 220.6 times larger than the black image that emulates the life of the universe.

    So boys and girls, I think we can make a difference, and we gave it 220 times from all around the universe and our growth is exponential, while he still counting one by one, we join the more than 6,000 million each year, and now that we have more awareness of the collaboration ... this brat named Universe does not reach us or heels!

    I like to think that my life can not be measured by any utilitarian unit of measure.

    Greetings.

    ooh, look at me, i'm optimistic

    Only a small sliver of anti-scientific Christians believe in Creationism, and that's based on a faulty interpretation of Genesis. As for the swearing issue, even if it was swearing as we understand it, that part of the law has been fulfilled (and was only applicable to Israelites anyway).

    Now, what I find to be hilarious, is a few of you ranting about Christianity, didn't even spell it correctly. That is a disgrace in itself. But I for one, am a person of logic and reason. I have not found one thing in this world that can not be explained by logic and reason.

    dogman you are a total douche. If u are not religous then you wont have read the bible and by extension should not be allowed to judge or make up ridiculous opinions about it.
    Im all for you making the decision to be atheist it is your choice but dont diss christioanity when you have no clue about it... you tool.

    Jesus?! If you're religious you are bound by the bible to believe ever word it says.

    Including that you should kill all children that swear.

    Oh and that the world is like a few thousand years old.
