Hi Rick, interesting that you should use the word 'science' there. I looked it up and found it was 'knowledge ascertained by observation and experiment' which means to me that anything that is not observable is not scientific.
Billions, or millions or thousands of years are not observable by humans, since we live to around 100 years at the most [122 for Jeanne Calment according to Wikipedia on 19Mar2010].
That's why evolution is defined as a religion - you have to have faith in what you cannot observe and test.
Thanks for your reply.
