Age of the universe Mon, Oct 23, 2006
According to the Ussher-Lightfoot Calendar, the universe was created on October 23, 4004 BC, making today its 6009th birthday (via Kottke).  Most scientists and logical people treat this as utter stupidity because microwave measurement and other methods of dating have determined the age of the universe to be 13.7 billion years.  I'm not convinced of either estimate.  I don't like to blindly trust science just because scientists appear smarter than me.  But I also don't like to blindly trust man's interpretation of the Bible, especially when it has anything to do with time (as evidenced by the myriad of incorrect end-of-the-world predictions).  I think the universe was created on April 18, 1982, which also happens to be the date of my birth. #science
