If 12:01 is PM; then 12:00:01 is also. And so is, 12:00:00.000000000000000000000001 That is, 1 yocto-second (or 1 septillionth) after..

So, what you are getting your knickers in a twist about is a point in time which even if we had the equipment to measure it, and the basis for deciding when it actually occurs, your brain is way to slow to register it.

Wanna talk some more about absurd :)


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
