Default Rouge Star Older Than The Known Universe

Even if there was a mix up, how could there 'even be' a mix up ? How can a star even burn that long ?

...Astronomers refined the star's age to about 14.5 billion years (which is older than the universe), plus or minus 800 million years. Image released March 7, 2013...

Enough about asteroids, that's an old star. The new measurements actually make it younger than once previously believed and within the margin of error for the age of the universe. Burning that long, it will be a great creator of heavy elements when it goes.

These so-called astrophysicists are just like the global warming hacks and evolutionists. They'll say anything for a buck. It's all 7000 years old, people!

Astronaut calls bullshit on climate "science"

Restore climate science integrity, please! Indoctrination is no substitute for education!

Those of us who challenge alarmist claims of accepted theory and “consensus” are referred to as “skeptics”, as if that’s a bad thing. Responsible scientists are supposed to be skeptical. Those who aren’t qualify as demagogues. In the days of Apollo, astronauts, engineers, flight controllers and managers were skeptical of anything that might impact landing a man on the Moon. That attitude led to success in one of the biggest challenges in history.

The conflict over AGW has deteriorated into a religious war — a war between true believers in a human-caused global warming problem and nonbelievers; between those who accept AGW on faith, and those who consider themselves more sensible and better informed.

“True believers” are beyond being interested in evidence; it is impossible to reason a person out of positions they have not been reasoned into.
