Young age of man but old age of the earth
Fascinating study of the early Jewish sources by Dr. Gerald Schroeder about the age of the earth. He suggests that we are dealing with two ages in Genesis 1. The first six days are billions of years (don’t quite track how he computes the length of time) but suggests that it has only been a little less than 6000 years from the creation of Adam on day 7. I am impressed but I suspect the young earthers out there will not be!
