4.54 billion years.
Doing a quick search in the internets (as the millennials call it), the Earth is about 4.54 billion years old according to science. By dating rocks and meteorites, scientists have concluded this range with an error range of 50 millions years.
Zooming in, us humans have been speculated to be 200,000 years old, and civilizations only about 6,000 years. Along these lines, we have had so many developments in the society in different fields.

To start, this would be written in the Biblical perspective. If you’re not subscribed to this, it’s okay, you can stop reading. If you’d still want to read, which I would be glad for you to do so, plow through. Not here to change your mind, but I’m just here to present a perspective taken from God’s Word. Some of these are infused too of how I have learned it from other preachings by pastors and other book reads.
To summarize things, let me put them in three bullet points: Continue reading “What’s the Real Deal with Love?”
