Hooray for steady state theories that don't take into consideration either degradation of systems or chaotic episodes. Or gravity.Originally Posted by mn777saint
Or the simple fact that the 365 days that the earth takes to rotate around the sun is measured by the atomic clock and it is the clock that is not accurate enough to measure the passage through time and space, not the planet that is at fault.
Why should there be 360 days in a year because there are 360 degrees in a circle? That is ridiculous. Do all the planets circle the sun at the same speed? By your reckoning Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and the rest MUST take 360 days to circle the sun also which is measurably untrue.
As to the history of our planet: I cannot say with any level of certainty how old the planet is. There is enough evidence to suggest that it is very old, but how old I don't know.
