What is time, and why is it equated with money?

    zentara, I am a little mystified by your question. Given your (mostly :)) lucid posts, you have missed the clear syllogistic conclusion:
    1. Albert Einstein clearly explained time, via special relativity.
    2. As Benjamin Franklin said "Time is Money"
    3. 1 Tim 6:10 clearly states that "The love of money is the root of all evil"(actually, the greek can actually be read "...the root of all sorts of evil")
    4. Therefore, "Einstein is the root of all evil" QED (you can get him off the hook a little bit by using the latter tranlation of 1 Tim 6:10)

    Your apparent lapse in logical capability can easily be attributed to the facts that

    1. You are certainly an example of the population the poll describes
    2. You have actually read too many of the "How can I do <blah<blah> with an RE?

    fnord

      I'm glad you have it figured out. :-) But I must say none of of the references you cite mean anything to me....Einstein is obsolete, Franklin was a Devil worshipper, I don't give a hoot about the modern bible. My apparent lapse in logical capability can be attributed to my non-logical abilities while in a theta wave state........ i.e. zen :-)

        Not to pick nits (well, OK, let the nit-picking begin)
        1. Special relativity is not obsolete, given the body of work SR experimental basis subject. There is far more experimental evidence for it, than against it. Those crackpots arguing against it are probably basing their arguments on some aspect of Samsara :)
        2. Being a devil-worshipper (and I dispute that claim, unless you are saying all Quakers are such) does not necessarily obviate the truth of statements made
        3. I was not referring to the modern Bible, unless you consider pre-4th century manuscipts as 'modern'

        fnord

      1. Albert Einstein clearly explained time, via special relativity.
      2. As Benjamin Franklin said "Time is Money"
      3. 1 Tim 6:10 clearly states that "The love of money is the root of all evil"(actually, the greek can actually be read "...the root of all sorts of evil")
      4. Therefore, "Einstein is the root of all evil" QED (you can get him off the hook a little bit by using the latter tranlation of 1 Tim 6:10)

      I hope you code better than you do logical proofs...
      1. That Einstein explained time does not make him "time" itself.
      2. I will accept the equivalency though it is unproven.
      3. That "love of money" is the root of something does not make money itself the root of something.

      4. If a = b and d (being "the love of b") is the root of c, that does not in any way show a relationship between e (the person who describes a) and d.

    "What is time, and why is it equated with money?"

    I never have enough and I'm always running out of both!
