RE: Earth 2.0
Out of curiosity...

The age of our planet is measured by dating rocks, right?

How does one calculate the age of a planet from which we have no sample specimens?

What did I miss?

By comparing that planet's sun to our own, as well as from star clusters. Light frequencies, size, etc tell us how old their sun would be. The planet then becomes "born" sometime after the sun was formed. They also use the model we have here to determine the age over there.

A more detailed explanation can be found HERE.

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.

This is so good and I can't touch it. The thing that would make me feel close to this sister place would be to get a dog and name it Kepler. Heart

I want to live in the future I imagine the future to be.

Maybe if we found life hadn't sustained we could shoot some microbes that way. Then the millions of years it would take to evolve would give rise to a race with poor writing skills and tell stories about a planet of gods that created them. MWAHAHAHA!

And just maybe they already did that to us?
