Angels Tell Me…

If you take a dollar bill, which is 6.14 inches (or 6 inches, if you are rounding), and used that as a visual to compare time to actual space; the very generous lifespan of a human of 120 years would look like 736.8 inches or 61.4 feet.

The age of modern humanity as we know it is calculated to be approximately 50,000 years or about 12792 dollar bills, laid end-to-end, which would be about 4.84 miles. Most people could walk that distance in a little over an hour.

Scientists theorized that the human race has been evolving for about 200 thousand years or the length of 614,000 dollar bills, laid end-to-end, or 102,333 feet, or almost 19.5 miles.

The Earth has been around for about 4.5 billion years and the whole universe (according to the Big Bang Theory [not the Bible]) has been revolving in the void for about 14 billion years. That is a 14 with 9 zeros after it. The calculations for converting that time into spatial distance are astronomical, so I won’t do them here.

The whole point of this exercise is that, if you are walking along and you are only going for 61.4 feet of the millions of miles available – you’d better make every inch count!! Shanimah 5/14/2012
