4.4 BILLION years old. It proves that the Earth was actually cool enough to support oceans and land during a time scientists had first thought was still molten magma.Amazing crystal.

that's amazing, i wonder how they tested it or figured out how it was that old?  at first i thought it was the chunk of material that it is actually in or on... then i realized it was the dot!

so, dbt, did the survey demographics reveal that you are our oldest? :lol:

4.4 billion years old - thats absurd - every intellegent person knows the world is about 10000 - 15000 years old.  this is obviously a case of the inaccurate voodoo science of carbon datin or a test of faith

you think so? i bet if that lil speck of almost space sand could talk it would tell us so much...

like...

"you think its tough now?  when i was a kid, i had to roll thousands of miles through newly cooled lakes and lava just to get to school... and we had respect for our composite atoms... and we didnt worry about the atmosphere, we just hoped we didnt get rained on by acid... we didnt even once complain, and  we had breathe amonia etc etc etc"

that's very, very funny!  also, it looks like you quoted correctly... except for the backslash as warning says.  but i thought that was automatic?  i just paste what i want quoted in to my message, then re-highlight it and hit the "Quote" button and it does it magically!  i think i've also hit the Quote button, then pasted the section in, then hit Quote again.  maybe you were just typing in the brackets and letters? if that's so, then me being an "end-user" and "consoler" paid off for once!
