This is my short answer.
So planet Earth is, according to you and your calculations, 6 thousand years old? How do dinosaurs fit into this timeline of yours? Did the apostles
ride on raptors and eat brontoburgers? I really want to know.
The Bible speaks of God making the 'image' of man and this world in Genesis 1. It took six days. In Biblical terms, this may very well be 6,000
years. He then rests for one day. This makes 7000 years in typical Biblical language. In Genesis 2, the image is rendered to matter. Man shows up
on the sixth day in the first chapter and is engaged on the 8th day in the second week. Today, we are on the 13th day, or the end of the 6th day of
week 2. In typical Biblical fashion, God mirrors truth in the middle. Since the day of rest on day 7 was good, and mankind on day 6 was good, then
the new man at the end of day 6 will be good, followed by 1000 years of rest with Christ. That makes 14,000 years.
Another way to say this is by showing that the golden mean is part of Time/Space. God told this story from his perspective. Time dilation would
allow us to infer that God is not restricted to our time/space, nor would his perspective and frame of reference be ours. Since the first six days
would have been the longest on the curve of the golden ratio of 1:1.618, then Day 8 would be much shorter. Day 14 even shorter as we approach a
singularity and the coil unwinds. Specifically, the Bible suggests that multiplicity must return to unity.
When Peter was not catching fish, Jesus called form the shore to fish on the right side of the boat. When he did, he caught 153 fish. Pythagoras
taught us that this 17th triangular number is "The Measure of the Fish" and the square root of 2. If you take the ratio of 1:1.415, you can make a
Vesica piscis, or intersecting circles. This is the Fish of the Way. What is the way? Fish on the right side of truth. What is the right side?
God's will is to give and receive only. In other words, a true conservative. The left side takes. Liberals can only take for self. This is
objectivism. Altruism is the ideal of the conservative, yet in our day and age, there are few true conservatives left. Ayn Rand was incorrect in her
philosophy. We do not own our soul. It is on loan, as is the very spirit (Consciousness) we use to move and think.
Is the Earth 6,000 years old. NO. At least 14,000 and as much as 14 billion. It depends on the nature of time increasing by a ratio, the
multiplicity of things and the unity of the whole. Time is not Space, it's time/space and your reckoning of time is based on your time and space.
God's is not.
All things flow from a source. Frosty the Snowman is made of unique flakes, yet will return to one pool.

Rivers are also dew. Dew rises when the sun
rises and is distilled (Impurity removed).
19 But your dead will live, Lord;
their bodies will rise—
let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy—
your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.
20 Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.
21 See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling
to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
The earth will disclose the blood shed on it;
the earth will conceal its slain no longer.
What is Adam? He was first mentioned on Day 8. Before this, mankind is mentioned. In Genesis 6, we see other beings from other parts of heaven
coming down to have their way with Earth Women. The flood happens and we then see a return to the same corruption. What is the plan for Earth after
this? 1000 years of rest. No matter where you look, the same evidence points to humans for 14,000 years. Is God restricted from having mankind
present for 2,000 years and then Adam being the man created on day 8? Christ is the new blood (DNA) of the next man. What do you suppose this means
for day 15? To find out, you must be born again. Baptism is our immersion in the water to rise to new life. Involution is baptism. Rising to new
life is evolution. Do we have evidence for this process?
Gospel of the Nazarenes (Lection 88)
12. For by involution and evolution shall the salvation of all the world be accomplished: by the Descent of Spirit into matter, and the Ascent of
matter into Spirit through the ages.
Involution and Evolution
Axioms can only be evident. What is most evident as you look at your map of this territory?
