I have been hearing all of my life, some form of the expression, "from the beginning of time". Well I have been thinking about that, and wondering just when are they talking about?
From when man was studying evolution, and discovered that any sort of life form probably started out as a single molecule sort of a being, living in the ocean - from the estimated time that would have been?
From before that? Is it Earthly time? Is the time that clocks and/or calenders were invented, or maybe when the cycle of the moon started to mean something to ancient peoples as far as the passage of time?
It seems as if that simple expression could mean so many different things. Does anyone have an idea as to just what that expression is really referring to?

I dont think time ever began. I dont even think it exists. Our time is based on the Sun and our planet. Time is basically just a measurement like inches and yards and both are man-made.
