Happy New Year.. but.. what year is it..??

The earth has been around for about 4.5 billion years.. we have artifacts & cave drawings going much further back than a mere 2007 years. We need a more realistic date from which to "relate" to..

    It's year 163 in the Baha'i calendar which starts in 1844. The Baha'i faith is the newest of the world religions born in 1844.

    The Baha’i year consists of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), with the addition of “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary and five in leap years) between the eighteenth and nineteenth months to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The Baha’i New Year is astronomically fixed, and begins with the March equinox (March 21).

    It is far from 2007. They say 2007 because of religious matters. Religion is just a manifestation of humanity's insecurities about the unknown, makes you feel comfortable, but that's getting too much into my own opinion. So like you said. I think it's before that. When people say "year" some think Jesus, some think humans, not many thing the "earth." Many different opinions. 4.5billlion sounds like the correct year to me.

    Happy New Year! It's 2007 A.D. (after Christ) yes the earth was around long before that. That's why dates before Christ are referred to as B.C...

    well this question is very complex many factors contribute to our knowledge of what year it is becuase some evidence was washed away or destroyed in ince ages great fires and what not. so the dat is MUCH greater than 2007 but it cant be accuretly dated.

    of course its not the REAL amount of time humans have been around. We just have only been counting the amount of time humans/people have been around for 2,007 years. This doesn't mean we have only been around for that amount of time.
