Dinjiin: Omnivorous: Sounds like god's been playing dice with the universe all along.

16.7 billion years until it craps out.

Actually, it appears that when He created the universe 6,000 years ago, he used a 24-bit integer variable to store the year value in the Matrix's mainframe. N00b programming error.

"16 billion years is enough for anybody." -- God

The Milky Way will be torn apart 32.9 million years before the big rip. The Earth will be ripped away from the Sun two months before the end, and we'll lose our moon with five days left. The Sun itself will be destroyed 28 minutes before the end of time, and the Earth will explode a mere 12 minutes later.

and then there will be nothing

But the entire universe is only 6,000 years old. Seems kind of lopsided.
