Question/Topic: Creation - Earth - Bible 
Answer/Pointer: From The Bible as History, by Werner Keller 220.95 Kel, p. 414: " In 1654 Archbishop Ussher of Ireland, declared that the Creation took place at 9 A.M. on October 26 in the year 4004 B.C., basing his claim on a careful study of the scriptures. For more than a century this date, the result of conscientious calculations, was regarded as valid. Anyone who suggested an earlier date was considered a heretic," See also Testament: the Bible and history,by John Romer 220.09 Rom
