It's a Young World After All!!
  "And that, knowing the TIME, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed" (Romans 13:11).  

Chronology is a branch of history. As such it is governed by the laws which determine the validity of the results reached by the process of scientific investigation and historical inquiry. It is also a branch of applied mathematics, and mathematics (unlike the fantasy of evolution) is an exact science. The earth is thousands . . . not billions or even millions of years old.

The evolutionist's "god" is time and chance. Given enough time . . . anything is possible....Microbes turn into monkeys and monkeys into men. Unfortunately for them, the Bible does not give them a billionth of the time for their miracles of transformation to happen.

Even carbon 14 dating is wrong for events before the great Flood because the Bible says that the earth was a completely different place back them. Men lived to be almost 1,000 years old, animals were vegetarians, and there was no rain or vast oceans.

All of the major events in the Old Testament are dated, as a matter of fact, the first 11 chapters of Genesis are mostly genealogy and chronology:

Leading Bible Dates from the Old Testament

Event Bible Date B.C.
Universe created . . . Adam and Eve created --- 4046
Enoch born 622 3424
Noah born 1056 2990
Great Flood 1656 2390
Abraham born 2008 2038
Moses born 2433 1677
Exodus from Egypt 2513 1533
Conquest of Canaan begins 2553 1493
King David begins to reign at Jerusalem 3063 983
4th year of King Jehoiakim. 1st year of King Nebuchadnezzar. This year connects sacred and secular chronology. 70 year Babylonian Captivity begins. 3520 526
1st year of Cyrus king of Persia. End of Babylonian Captivity. Cyrus issues proclamation allowing Jews to return and rebuild the Temple. Countdown of 483 years unto Messiah the Prince begins. 3589 457
15th year of Tiberius Caesar. Jesus is about 30 years old. He is anointed as Messiah at His baptism in the Jordan River. He binds Satan morally by overcoming all his temptations in the wilderness!! 4071 26 A.D.

The above chart is taken for the book Chronology of the Old Testament 1913 by Rev. Martin Antsey M.A. It differs from all other chronologies in that the dates are based on Scripture alone. It might be 1 or 2 years off - not millions like the evolutionists!!

And so we have a complete count of the years from the first Adam to the Last Adam - the Lord Jesus Christ. From the beginning of time to the fullness of time. From creation to redemption. To find out the age of the world from this point is very simple:

Determining the age of the world

Event Bible Date
15th year of Tiberius Caesar. End of the Old Testament chronology. Jesus is about 30 years old. 4071
Subtract 30 years from this date - 30
Add the years of the Christian era 2008
Age of the world!! 6049

According to the Bible chronology, the world was 6,000 years old about 1958.
