You are dead wrong time cannot be stopped. There are black holes all over the universe but yet here I am experiencing Time. That's either weird or the two of you are wrong.
I'm guessing that later.
Yes, time is local. It is not the same everywhere.

You were given two examples of how time could be stopped. Did you not understand them or are you just a denying idiot?

WRONG. Time cannot be stopped.
If time stopped all matter, space, and energy would stop existing.
Clearly that isn't the truth.
The evidence says if time stops the clock simply quits ticking.
If time stopped on a universal scale, we wouldn't even have ever known it. But we can alter the ticks of clocks within the original
clock that started 13.7 bya.

Your question should be is the original clock, within another clock, or are there other clocks ? We simply cannot answer that.
But there most likely is. But more importantly ask the question
of whether we can detect the presence of a previous clock.
It maybe possible, and we maybe able to do this soon, with the Webb telescope after it gets in position and looks back toward the beginning.

<quoted text>No the questions are....
1. "Does time even exist?"
2. "Does time exist beyond human perception?"

1a. As a inseparable and intertwined property of this universe.

2. I think it does but humans are limited to a single perception of it, where clearly there is a dimensional quality we struggle to comprehend. We are physically bound to a single clock, but we can alter our clock's rate. Once we have changed our clock, it is no longer synchronized with the first clock.

1b. There could be clocks not associated with the clock we were originally bound to.

2b. We cannot tell where the original clock started, possibly in another universe.
But our proper clock (The one we are bound to)
started 13.7 +- a billion years ago.

Understanding these things makes the question where did time come from irrelevant. But for posterity understand time is a dimensional
quality that always existed in any instance requiring a clock.
1) yes
2) at this time we can not say for sure
1a) yes
2b) a guess

"Understanding these things makes the question where did time come from irrelevant."

WRONG.

You're half right. If time stopped we would not know it. But we do know we would no longer exist. We exist so time has never stopped.

I am quite aware that time does have different speed depending on gravity.
That's not the question.
The question is.
In the Big Bang theory where did time come from.
We know for a fact that nothing can exist with out time. The BB claims time started 13.7 billion years ago.
So where did time come from?
a singularity can exist without time, and for our purposes the singularity of the big bang was everything...

That's how you work leave the real world out of your guess that you call theory's. LOL

Then why aren't you asking where length or height or depth came from?
Time came from the same place they did.
We got them at the dimension store.

Yes, for you it is impossible to stop time. You will never find yourself falling into a black hole. Nor will you ever approach the speed of light.

For a photon or something that falls into a black hole that is not the case. A photon experiences no time. To a photon it is everywhere along its path instantaneously.

I gave you a reference that supported my beliefs, what do you have that supports yours??

Time is a vector quantity.

Now imagine 2 time vectors, one at right angles to the other. An infinity of time can elapse on one before a moment passes on the other. In that sense you would say time has stopped for whatever reference frame is at right angles to your own.

And thats about the size of it. Time slowing or stopping is merely one vector out of parallel with another.

If you say we haven't proof that God exist, how can you say with certainty that the Bible has been proven to be a myth?

Answer: You can't...and you still don't know the truth about the origin of life (and you never will without faith in God) because you are blinded by "YOUR" religion and your "FAITH" of evolution ALONE.

"Nothing" never existed.
It is impossible for nothing to exist.
If nothing existed, there would be nothing.
Time existed the whole time it existed.
So, when we say that God always existed, you respond by saying "Who created God, He had to have a creator, He didn't come from nothing" ...or 'NOW' you say ..."NOTHING NEVER EXISTED"...or "The world was created from nothing"

If nothing never existed, who created the things that have 'always' existed?

Make up your mind.

There is no logical difference between saying God always existed and the universe always existed in some form even before the big bang.

Aspects of the bible have been proven myths in many ways. Especially the earliest parts. They simply do not stack up with the observable universe.

None of that means God doesn't exist but it does mean you are pretty silly to take the bible literally.

We don't have to ask where length, height or depth came from, we have already been told.

It's you guys that are still scratching your heads for an answer because you're too hardheaded to hear the truth.

Every "TRUTHFUL" discovery that you make, only proves God's existence and power.

Isaiah 44:24
This is what the LORD says&#8209;your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself.

Psalm 19:1
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Nehemiah 9:6
You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.

Evolution is not a faith.

It's a conclusion.
