Creation of the World, According to Archbishop James Ussher (4004 BCE)

For centuries, Christian scholars have tried to deduce the precise date of creation, using Biblical sources to help guide them. One such scholar, 17th-century Irish archbishop James Ussher, devised a system of dates that sets the creation of the world at 4004 BCE. Ussher's chronology rests upon the beliefs that creation began in autumn—the season that marks the start of the year according to the Jewish lunisolar calendar—near the autumnal equinox and that creation began on what day of the week?

Regarding Sumero-Babylonian creation myths retold in the book of Genesis as historic sources is tantamount to mental disease and derangement.

Finally, TFD's This Day in History is 100% correct!

Since creation around 6 thousand years have passed (like the 6 days of creation) and we are in the beginning of the 7th day (7,000, because one year for the Lord is like a 1,000 years...)

If you do not have "ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart that is willing to obey", than you're on your own!

As for me, "...I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I've committed to Him until that day" 2 Timorhy 1:12

BTW "We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don't believe in the Creator?"
Yes, you are on your own!

This is like trying to figure out the beginning of time from a fairy tale.
