Is the universe 5 days old

universal time I mean. Shortly after the big bang, the universal time at the time of the formation of the hot Earth was 1.0 * 10^12 Earth days. Therefore, multiply 5 with that number. We get 5,000,000,000,000 Earth days. Divide by 365.25 to get 13,689,253,935.660506502395619438741 or 13.689 billion Earth years. Of course, this formula could be wrong so can anyone confirm?

What is the entire universe was created 1 minute ago, and we are all just made with memories, and structures, and history, and we only THINK that it's been around for longer?

Time passed really quickly shortly after the big bang. Compared to Earth time that is.

I don't know much about this, but is that saying this hot earth formed on one particular day? Or what does that day mean? Is it the day the earth finished forming?

If you don't know, then suffer in ignorance. Just google Albert Einstein and the universe.

Even if I read it I dont understand this part 'the universal time at the time of the formation of the hot Earth was 1.0 * 10^12 Earth days'. I need help understanding what's meant by that, it's not that I haven't read it

I was also wondering what things might have looked like the day before 1.0 * 10^12 Earth days

Ohh.. Well things happened seconds after the big bang. This formula's been replaced by modern science which says the universe is 1.375 billion years old and not 1.4 billion years old. Before the Earth and stuff, it looked like a reverse of a black hole.

To me, the only two possible explanations behind the big bang is that 1.something compressed the matter to the point of the explosion, which means it was under extreme gravitational forces, just like in a black hole. If so, the universe has formed from within a black hole, which means there must be universe upon universe stacked infinitely in each other which have been expanding and contracting infinitely in time, else one cant explain the first big bang (a bit more complicated than that, but thats the basics) or 2. Theres a God that compressed that fisrt ball of matter that caused the bang.

He must have done that about 1.4 billion years ago, according to science

Yea well, there are religious texts which support the big bang. The bible gave the first idea of an expanding universe, the Qur'an was more specific by telling us the condensed matter and expansion.

I have read of this formula and it seems reasonable to me, as the farther, in light years, from Earth, the older the universe is. That is taking into the theory of the expanding universe.

Yes. The universe expands and because of that, the calculation gets more and more inaccurate with time. That's why NASA concluded that we must do the researches quickly, as the evidence of the big bang may be gone in a trillion years. We should either preserve it or make sure it's a valid theory.

You could be right however it would be 5 days young.
