In the Beginning

In the beginning God created . . .
I just had to say that, at exactly 9am, because 9am on 23rd of October, 4004 BC, the world was apparently created by God who kept a very tight schedule.

"Dr. John Lightfoot, (1602 - 1675), an Anglican clergyman, rabbinical scholar, and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge had already arrived at an estimate of 4004-OCT-23 BCE, at 9 AM." ReligiousTolerance.org
The date, based on James Ussher's scientific research, was printed in many King James Bibles.
The late Stephen Jay Gould, however, played with the date enough to bring Ussher's date back to Oct 23, 1997. At noon, to be exact . . .
The Freemasons are not at all impressed by these dates. Hope they dont list me on their website for research errors.
