I'm not trying to start anything, I'm just putting this out as a bit of historical information.

I just was looking something up and found out that today, the 23rd of October, is according to the Ussher-Lightfoot calender the day that the Earth was created in 4004 BC.

I don't believe this myself.  :)

Actually, God created chaotic matter on the evening of Saturday, 22 October, 4004 BCE, while the actual beginning of an orderly cosmos began on the 23rd.

There is a 1 in 365 chance that today was the day.  ;)

September 21, 4004 BC actually. Ussher's date is according to the Julian Calendar... Bishop Ussher was an Old Calendarist ;P

Look up the "Chronicon Paschale".  Ussher was just following in the grand ole tradition.
