Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    OK, so this is size of objects, another would be the distance between objects in space, and still another would be the distance between objects/events across time.

    None of those things are truly comprehensible to exceedingly limited beings that are the result of hundreds of thousands of generations of patchwork mods, spaghetti coding of the worst sort … the miracle is that we can look at this, realize how limited and constrained we are and return to bumble on about our daily existence.
