I just want to hear peoples opinion of what todays date is in our evolution, is it 12 billion six hundred thousand, four hundred and 76 years, 7 months and 2 days because the universe we know of began the process when it began this cycle, or a trillion times that becuase the cycle has repeated a million times, or is there no real date because the universe has always existed?
Or is it a date based upon the first life on earth which gave birth to all other life? Or shall we just consider the beginning from anotomically modern human beings? What would you use as a start point to derive at todays date :)
