I just read an article in my hometown newspaper on a physicist who is also CEO of the aerospace company that built the Space Shuttle's robot arm, who devised a means of calculating Biblical time which results in a startling conformation with the the age of the universe as estimated by astrophysicists.
In his book "The Genesis One Code," Daniel Friedmann has determined that if you read Genesis, it says one of God's days is equal to a thousand of our years, so therefore you multiply 365 times 1000; and then if you figure the universe was made in seven of God's days, which translates to seven thousand years, and multiply 7000 by the previous figure, it comes out that each day of Creation is an epoch of 2.56 billion years. That makes the age of the universe 13.74 billion years, which corresponds to the 13.75 billion years that science has estimated.
Friedmann's formula produced 20 more Bible/science matches, including an estimate of when the first life began on earth (Day 5--3.52 billion years ago).
It was a neat little article, and kind of surprising to find it in the Monroe Watchman, which usually prints farm reports and club news.
I haven't gone to the web site that was given in the article yet, but if you're interested, it's:
The article added that Daniel Friedmann has a master's in engineering physics and 30 years' experience in the space industry. His Canadian company specializes in the robotics used on the space station. He also has published more than 20 peer-reviewed scientific papers on space industry topics. He is also a longtime student of cosmology and religion.
