Happy Birthday, Earth!

In case you didn't know, yesterday was Earth's 6,010th birthday.

Brace yourselves for some CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY!

How old is the world?

Most people would say: "Nobody knows."

But the author of the book frequently described as the greatest history book ever written, said the world was created Oct. 23, 4004 B.C. – making it exactly 6,010 yesterday.

The book, now published in English for the first time, is a favorite of homeschoolers and those who take ancient history seriously.

Of course, there will be those who disagree with Ussher's calculations of time – especially evolutionists who need billions of years to explain their theory of how life sprang from non-life and mutated from one-celled animals into human beings.

Ussher's arrival at the date of Oct. 23 was determined based on the fact that most peoples of antiquity, especially the Jews, started their calendar at harvest time. Ussher concluded there must be good reason for this, so he chose the first Sunday following autumnal equinox.

Although the autumnal equinox is Sept. 21 today, that is only because of historical calendar-juggling to make the years come out right.

If you think this is a startling fact – an actual date for Creation – you haven't seen anything until you've pored through the rest of Ussher's "Annals of the World." It's a classic history book for those who believe in the Bible – and a compelling challenge for those who don't.
I...how do you...

Seriously, am I the only one that gets sad and angry about the state of mankind when I read this nonsense and realize that millions of people believe it?

All mammals suck, Prof. It's what separates us from the reptiles.

Happy Birthday, EArth! You don't look a day over 4.5 billion.

Has anyone notice in the ad for Usher's book the word HISTORICAL is repeated few times? AHH Christ-psychosis is alive and well, and nobody seems to notice....
This is the reason I made this video few days ago to educate the retards. Dr Kaku makes reference to this crazy Bishop in his study of TIME, from which I got the clips.

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.
