I just had the idea that time becomes more consequential the smaller of an object you observe.
Many quantum effects have zero time dilation
Atomic effects have whatever incredibly small fraction of interaction with time
Molecular effects operate on the range of seconds
Macro objects and change over minutes
Large masses change over years
Stars change over thousands of years
Galaxies noticeably change over tens of thousand of years
Galaxy clusters interact over millions of years
and galactic clusters interact over billions of years.

Am I just high, or would their be a way to correlate the size of a defined system with the Einstein field equations?

The smaller something is the less efficient its surface area to space occupied is (Not mass, The actual amount of space it occupies).
As such, Reactions are more likely to happen.

You can also add in the fundamental forces and the long distance behaviour. But that's just crazy complicated.

Also, As a side note, Just because noticeable change happens over a long period, does not at all effect the fact that change is constantly happening at the same rate.

Doesn't M-Theory negate general relativity?

No. Unified models seek to explain GR, not to negate it. This anyway is more a case for special relativity which is not going anywhere.

Only in higher, more theoretical levels of multiverse.

So you know, I'm a scientist by education (biologist) but haven't ventured into astronomy or astrophysics to any significant length and have been content more or less by the information I've gathered regarding the creation of the universe, planets, elements, and complex life in general. However, what I don't particularly understand is how it reinforces atheistic predilections by providing explanations to natural phenomena. I'm an atheist by nature and was having a casual conversation with a friend of mine who's also a scientist (chemist), and it was an odd conversation to say the least.

My overall take on the matter is that solid theories and data and evidence regarding the conception of life is so relatively coherent that to put an almighty and all-powerful, sentient, entity in the story is just redundant and superfluous, but taking a chemist's point of view I saw some holes in some of the information I have that make up my outlook on things. When it comes to life, it's quite easy to explain how it was formed, at least on earth. However, what he was arguing about was not life in general but rather things that are atomic in nature; he asked how protons and electrons came to be, and the quarks and muons/taus/so on and the overall complexity of what people see as the most simplest of things in the universe. I don't really have the necessary understanding of physics or the universe in general to come up with a valid answer. Obviously there are valid explanations for them, and a lot of theories too, but what are the most recent and most credible? And, I'd really hate to do this, but for some odd reason, he said that matter must be preceded by a something, from an incoherent state to a coherent state, and then explicitly stating that even if time provides the necessary tools for coherence, something must have created all the matter in the universe which came from the big-bang.

Oh I don't know, can anybody point me to decent reads (not books) regarding question of why did the big-bang happen, and where did all this matter come from, and why is there an infinite universe to allow for its expansion, the assimilation of quarks into protons and electrons and atoms, and s…

Cook the dog....COOK THE DOG! Cook your own dog!?

No child should be made to do that. Dog should be raw...and living

This is most likely correct, consciousness being primary to matter and having created it. This has almost nothing to do with God and more to do with how you conceptualize our 3d reality being simulated within 4d Bulk space, embedded within it like a Russian doll. The simulators would have "thoughfully" created the conditions to form 3d matter.
