This Tour Of Jewish and World History Is Presented By:



The Age Of The Universe

From a superficial reading of the Bible it seems that the event of Creation occurred around six-thousand years ago.

However, the world contains many things that seem to indicate an age of much greater than six-thousand years.

One or more of the following approaches can be used to reconcile the apparent contradiction.

Science does not and can not disprove the model of creation.

According to the Kabala, the world has no independent existence. Instead, the existence of reality as we know it is being continually renewed by the will of G-d. From this perspective, the world has no age because whatever we see now did not exist a moment ago, even though it appears otherwise.

As stated previously, September 21 1998  is the 5,759th anniversary of Adam’s first day.
