    Um... That's actually correct!!!!
    4,540 million years IS 4.54 billion years. A billion is a 1,000 million.....

    1000 million is equivalent to 1 billion so by that fact 4,540 million is the same as 4.54 billion.

    Last time I checked, 4540 million = 4.54 x 10^9. Cortana is correct, unless you are European and thus interpreting the comma in 4,540 as a decimal point. Cortana uses US numbering systems.

    In Europe we don't treat comma as a decimal point.

    No one treats the comma as a decimal point. I think the OP just misread it...

    Much of Europe does: France, Spain, Italy .... Prices read 1,99 not 1.99.

    According to Wikipedia a heap of countries do:
    SI style (French version), Albania, Belgium, Bosnia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latin Europe, Lithuania, Netherlands (non-currency numbers, see below), Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden

    There actually seem to be a bug in the WP emulator when emulating GPS in countries that use a comma, for example if I switch to French the emulator no longer reports any GPS events.

    Moved to "Off Topic" since this has turned to a discussion about decimal points and\or what applies to which country\continent.

    Well that's true, the earth is who knows how many years old, The Flood threw off the carbon dating, so alot of numbers after like 5k years are soo wrong. xD

    Regardless earth is probably dat old. As for the 6,000 years, that would be wrong to say for how old the earth is. xD IF you asked how long mankind has been on earth then yes roughly 6000 years would be a proper answer. :P

    A age of 6,000 years was calculated by people who counted up all of the begatting in the Bible - the actual date was October 23, 4004BC.

    Homo Sapiens first appeared about 195,000 years ago.

    Earliest farming is around 12,000 years ago
    Earliest sheep flocks around 11,000 years ago
    Wild cereals around 11,000
    Domestication of wolf to dog is around 10,000 years ago

    This is where you get that other creationist number from of 10 to 14,000 years ago.

    I've seen artifacts from 40,000 years ago. That was amazing.

    News flash: No one who is alive now was around 195k years ago. Science can't know how old the Earth is or how long we have been here. Scientist can claim any BS they want but they'll never have proof.

    Well, thanks for that. But physics is pretty immutably and doesn't tend to change over time.

    Just because you want to be ignorant of science doesn't mean everyone else is. Try learning something, that grey matter you have between your ears is a wonderful thing if you plan to use it.

    As for you 'no one was around' nonsense. That's an old canard that all creationsist use. Going by your statement, no murder should ever be convicted.

    Come back when you actually have a better argument.

    Prove the earth is 4.5 billion years old and while you're at it prove how it came to be. I don't want your theories. I want undeniable proof. Ready, set, go....
