An international team of researchers has recovered the first 40 million years of Arctic climate history by coring the Arctic's first scientific borehole from under the Arctic seafloor, says a Swedish Polar Research Secretariat press release. The expedition's co-chief scientist, Professor Jan Backman of the University of Stockholm, said, "This core goes back to a time when there was no ice on the planet -- it was too warm. It will tell us a great deal about the climate of the region. It will tell us when it changed from hot to cold and, hopefully, why." Scientists examined microfossils in the ice core and found material in the sediments that initially appears to be 40 million years old, originating in the Middle Eocene period. The sediments will help researchers determine the type and abundance of marine creatures that lived in the Arctic at that time.

First of all the obvious: if that is the day the earth was created then why is it not the first day of the calendar? Considering we operate with the Gregorian calendar being used and that calendar was decreed by the church to be law, why wouldnt october 23rd be the first day of the year? Furthermore, why would the earth start in 4004 B.C. instead of 1 or something similar?
