Rocks of this age are relatively rare, however rocks that are at least 3.5 billion years in age have been found on North America, Greenland, Australia, Africa, and Asia.While these values do not compute an age for the Earth, they do establish a lower limit (the Earth must be at least as old as any formation on it).So on the day we were filming that scene, I discussed it with Tilda and I asked her to deliver it in a way that she feels she's speaking the truth.

All those regulations and the rule of distribution: they have to fix it, revise it, develop it.

he generally accepted age for the Earth and the rest of the solar system is about 4.55 billion years (plus or minus about 1%).

I don't have a problem with meat consumption itself, but I do want my audience to consider, at least once, where the food on their plate comes from.

And, if one is to do that, I believe the level of meat consumption will gradually decline.” The South Korean director's films, in the cinematic landscape, have never really been considered outright political missives, perhaps only because they hide under the guise of genre film.
