: I don't remember any reference in the Bible about the properties of time? If anything, I would interpret time as being much more subjective(spiritual in interpretation) in the Bible as opposed to the modern sciences. For example, if you believe in the Bible, there are some who interpret the creation of the world and God's rest in 7 days as literally that, while others speculate how long an actual day was in Genesis. A million years? A billion?

: Actually scientific time is simply an elapsed interval between two events. Your statement that time does not bend/warp is inaccurate since basic quantum physics illustrates the contraction/dilation of time does occur between inertial frames. This is simply an artifact of our mathematical representation of certain phenomena, i.e. time in this case. Also, since time is a mathematical abstration I could state that time exists prior to any Big Bang event.

Wayne: To this I respond: "Time will tell." and see my response to ZC
