Secular History Proves Young Age of Earth

The following is quoted directly from “Dating Creation” in Wikipedia, under the Greeks and Romans section. Notice the amazing parallel to the biblical chronology:

Most ancient Greek and Roman chroniclers, poets, grammarians, and scholars (Eratosthenes, Varro, Apollodorus of Athens, Ovid, Censorinus, Catullus, and Castor of Rhodes) believed in a threefold division of history: ádelon (obscure), mythikón (mythical) and historikón (historical) periods.[22] According to the Roman grammarian Censorinus the first period, the ádelon (obscure), was calculated by Varro as follows:

The first (period) stretches from the beginning of mankind (the creation) to the first cataclysm [i.e. the flood of Ogyges].[23]

The primordial ádelon (obscure) period ended with the flood of Ogyges and what followed was the beginning of the mythikón (mythical) period. Varro dated this flood to 2137 BC[24] but Censorinus wrote in his De Die Natali ch. xxi that the Ogyges’ diluvium occurred 1600 years before the first Olympiad (776 BC) meaning 2376 BC.[25] Castor of Rhodes also provided another date for the start of the mythikón (mythical) period, 2123 BC.[26] Censorinus recorded that the second period, the mythikón, stretched from the flood of Ogyges to the first Olympiad:

The second stretches from the first cataclysm to the first Olympiad; because many myths are recorded in it, it is called “mythical”.[23]

According to Censorinus (quoting Varro), the second period (mythikón) lasted from 2137 to 776 BC, or if Censorinus’ own dates are used: 2376 BC to 776 BC, or finally if Castor’s: 2123 BC to 776 BC. Ovid, however, dated the start of the mythikón period to the reign of Inachus, whom he dated 400 or so years after the flood of Ogyges, meaning around 1900–1700 BC, but agreed with Varro that the mythikón ended during the first Olympiad (776 BC).[27] See Ages of Man for more details about Ovid’s chronology. Another ancient date for the start of the mythikón (mythical) period is found preserved in Augustine’s City of God xviii.3, which dates it to 2050 BC.[28] The final period according to Censorinus and Varro, the historikón (historical) era, began from 776 BC (the first Olympiad) to their own time:

The third stretches from the first Olympiad to us. Because the events in it are contained in true histories, he calls it “historical.”[23]young-earth

Talmud Teaches 6000 Year History

MillenniumBabylonian Talmud: Tractate Sanhedrin

Folio 97A

R. Kattina said: Six thousand years shall the world exist, and one [thousand, the seventh], it shall be desolate, as it is written, And the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day.   Abaye said: it will be desolate two [thousand], as it is said, After two days will he revive us: in the third day, he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

It has been taught in accordance with R. Kattina: Just as the seventh year is one year of release in seven, so is the world: one thousand years out of seven shall be fallow, as it is written, And the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day,’ and it is further said, A Psalm and song for the Sabbath day,  meaning the day that is altogether Sabbath — 35 and it is also said, For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past.

The Tanna debe Eliyyahu teaches: The world is to exist six thousand years. In the first two thousand there was desolation;  two thousand years the Torah flourished;  and the next two thousand years is the Messianic era, but through our many iniquities all these years have been lost.

Biblical Chronology and the End of the Age


Chronology of the Bible by John VonDrashek

Counting Time from the Beginning of the World until 2011C.E.

Isaiah 46

9Remember the former things of old: for I am Elohim, and there is none else; I am Elohim, and there is none like me,

10Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.

Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of Elohim to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.

Daniel 12

9And He said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

10Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

Daniel 2

20Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of Elohim forever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

21And he changes the times and the seasons: he removes kings, and sets up kings: he gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

22He reveals the deep and secret things: he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.

Psalm 111:10
The fear of the Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever.

41And it came to pass at the end of the 430 years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Total years sojourn of abram’s seed is 190 in canaan + 210 in egypt = years sojourn of children of israel including abram  before his seed was born is 400 + 25(Abram in Canaan) + 5(Abram in Harran) = 430.  total years from creation until exodus is 2508.

Total years from creation until temple burned 3405.

The temple was burned in 586 b.c.e., making the year of creation 3991 b.c.e.

Some important dates in history:

Creation 3991 B.C.E.

Enoch translated to heaven 3004 B.C.E.

Noah’s Flood 2335 B.C.E.

Tower of Babel 2234 B.C.E.

Exodus 1483 B.C.E.

Solomon starts Temple 1004 B.C.E.

Nebuchadnezar Burns Temple 586 B.C.E.

Year 6000 = 2010 C.E.

Biblical chronology records that  Enoch was translated to heaven in 3004 B.C.E.

The ancient Sanskrit writings of the Hindus in India record that Krishna ascended to heaven in 3102 B.C.E.

The ancient Mayans start their calendar in 3114 B.C.E.  This is just 12 years from the year that the Hindus have Krishna ascend to heaven.

Biblical chronology records that  Enoch was translated to heaven in 3004 B.C.E.

The ancient Chinese date the Great Flood to 2357BCE during the time of Yao.

Lieh  Zi, a Taoist who lived in the 5th century BCE; tells of an ancient Chinese  legend of one named Nuwa who repaired the heavens after a great flood.

Biblical chronology has Noah’s Flood at 2335 B.C.E.

Alexander the Great captured Babylon in 331 B.C.E.

The Chaldean priests showed Alexander all their astronomical records going back to the founding of Babylon.

The records went back 1903 years.

331 B.C.E. + 1903 years = 2234 B.C.E. for the founding of Babylon.

Biblical chronology  records the Tower of Babel in 2234 B.C.E.(The Exact Date)

Rome conquered King Philip of Macedonia in 197 B.C.E.

Ancient Roman historians record that from the time of Ninus (Nimrod) until King Philip conquered was 1995 years.

197 B.C.E. + 1995 years = 2192 B.C.E.

Nimrod co-reigned 62 years with his father Cush.

2192 B.C.E. + 62 years = 2254 B.C.E.

Biblical chronology has the Tower of Babel 2234 B.C.E.

The ancient Chinese record that their first king Shun (Nimrod) was the son of Cush.  They record the start of his reign as 2254 B.C.E.

Biblical chronology records the tower of babel as  2234 B.C.E.

Biblical chronology records the Year 6000 as the year 2010 C.E.-2011C.E.

The ancient Mayans record that the current age of this world ends in 2012 C.E.

Therefore since the last Mayan year ends on December 21, 2012C.E., then this means it began on December 21, 2011C.E.(2011-2012 is the year 6001 on the Biblical calendar)

Therefore, we can conclude that the Mayans were trying to predict the beginning of the 7th millenium when the Messiah would return and set-up his kingdom here on Earth.
