That's not an original Christian view, it was a Jewish concept to attempt to calculate the aged the earth using the Bible as a literal text. The
Christians just borrowed this view from the Jews, since Christianity was created from -- and is closely related to -- Judaism.
And there really aren't too many Jews or Christians who still believe this. They have come to accept their scriptures as allegorical more than
literal -- but still just as valid.
It's interesting that Adam & Eve, Eden, the forbidden fruit, etc are all part of the Muslim Koran, but it never says that they were THE FIRST
