How BIG is a Billion?


 The next time you hear a someone use the word ‘billion’ in the usual, casual manner of speaking, just think about what that really represents. A picture is worth a 1000 words – yes! A billion is a truly difficult number to comprehend.
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth.

That’s the BIG picture!
