I agree with Hidden

I DON'T BELIEVE THEY WOULD BE BORN YET!!!!!

@Scudo: I don't think math is needed because this is a word riddle.

If the OP means exactly to the words... i would say the earth is still a molten sphere where there is no life... so no need to think abt humans, one of the late comers...

that humans are about to hit 40 as well. This is of course based on the traditional Christian worldview.

well it depends on whether

"Earth" is the name of our planet (as is Terra, or Gaia) or just a name.. of a random person... If the latter is true then humans are as old as their age

:D .. or humanity is like 40 million years old ?

Geologists have dated the earth to be about 4.54 billion years old. Archeologists have estimated that humans originated in the Middle Paleolithic period about 200,000 years ago. Comparatively, if the Earth were 40 years of age, humans would have roamed Earth just a little over a day, about 25 hours.

If 'Earth' is just a name of a random person, humans will be just as how old they would be. Or am I missing some points here..?

nope, imagine OUR mother earth as 40 years old woman, then calculate how old will the humans living on earth will be then?

no need to give the exact number, just give a small range

In order for any one of us to calculate and give you the estimate you wish, it would be proper if you give us the estimate of the actual age of the Earth you are using and the actual span of time humans have been here on Earth.

haha you're right

ok then i'll change the question to make it easier

'If Earth was a 40 year old woman, how long would humans have lived on her?'

taking that Earth is 4 billions years old and humans comes 200,000 years later.

taking that Earth is 4 billions years old and humans comes 200,000 years later.

200000/4000000000 = 1/20000

x/40 = 1/20000

x = 1/500 of a year

A year is approximately 8766 (= 365.25 x 24) hours long.

8766 * 1/500 ~= 17.532 ~= 17 1/2 hours
