On the Same Page

Categories: Religion

A few years ago, I was studying anthropology.  One of my lessons referred to a time span of 15 million years.  I began thinking about how long ago that was, but found it difficult to comprehend.

I noticed that the set of encyclopedia on my bookshelf was comprised of 15 volumes, so in my effort to relate 15 million years to my reality, I started with the concept that one volume equaled one million years.  Each volume contained about 475 pages.  Each page had about 16 paragraphs, and each paragraph had about 35 words, therefore, each word would represent about 4 years.  The average number of characters per English word is 4.5, so each character equals roughly one year.

If the first character of the first volume represented the present, and each subsequent character represented another year in the past, it occurred to me that the last character of the first page would go back about 2,200 years.

Isn't it nice to know that you and Jesus are on the same page?
