The age of the universe has been proven by looking to the farthest reaches of the universe, seeing how far we can see, and, knowing the speed of light, we can calculate how long ago the universe was created.
Thank you 729AO for sending me this challenge. Let's start with your argument. First of all, I would ask you to submit a source from where you got that information. This is a common request, and it should be granted to prove your argument is verifiable. Secondly, a question about your argument. From what information was this conclusion derived? Secondly my argument. Let us assume that you were given multiple tiny pieces of paper, and were asked to draw each generation of a species transforming into another species. As evolution would suggest, there would be thousand of mutations throughout generations, and thus there would be thousands of papers. Now, bury all those papers in the ground. You should have thousand of creatures in between the two species, and only two full versions of either species. So if there were 10,000 papers, your odds of finding a pure species should be 1/5000 or 0.02%. So why is it, if the odds are so low, that we continue to find only pure versions of the species, and pure versions only?
First, I'll tell you that you can find that information from too many sources to name; you can find them all during the next 250 free hours you have. Secondly, light's speed; by looking at the time it took for light to get from one place to another the closer distances, by looking at the position of objects in the sky at opposite time of the year; parallax, and for the farther distances; you can read this; http://www.astronomynotes.com.... And thirdly, it doesn't start with only 2 species. And, only creatures from the same species can reproduce. And the reason that you find so many pure species is that once the species is established it can't mate with other species; before that point those creatures are just mutated versions of the previous species, which you don't find often anyway.
