Bishop James Ussher's estimate
the age of the universe/creation, the beginning of time, as the
night preceding 23 October 4004 BC, according to the proleptic Julian
calendar. The speaker will not make fun of this serious Christian
scholarly estimate as is generally done now by the theologically
ignorant see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Ussher. Come and celebrate creation day. Galileo
Galilei (see URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo) estimate of at least 20 million years based
upon fossils wood and fossil ammonites in Italy. Leonardo
Vinci discovery of mollusk on the top of Tuscany mountains for
another earlier age of the earth estimate see URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci. The current best estimate of the age of the
universe, the dawn of time, of 13.75±0.11 Gyr (billion
years). What does this mean given that the earth, our reference
frame did not even exist during creation, and that the proper time of a
photon, particle of light is zero? The PowerPoint
