"Gerald Schroeder is a scientist with over thirty years of experience in research and teaching. He earned his Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorate degrees all at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with his doctorate thesis being under the supervision of physics professor Robley D. Evans. This was followed by five years on the staff of the MIT physics department prior to moving to Israel, where he joined the Weizmann Institute of Science and then the Volcani Research Institute, while also having a laboratory at The Hebrew University. His Doctorate is in two fields: Earth sciences and physics.
Schroeder's formal theological training in biblical, talmudic and kabalistic interpretation includes fifteen years of study under the late Rabbi Herman Pollack, Rabbi Chaim Brovender and Rabbi Noah Weinberg, of blessed memory."

Wow!!! I'm a Christian, but I can't believe that what I've suspected for a long time has actually now been proven. Totally amazing & great find!
1) What about the hardcore christians who say that the earth has to be 20.000 or something years old?
2) Where do we draw the line? Will we accept the ten commandments but neglect the parts about slavery as outdated?
3) It seems to me like you´re really REALLY trying to hold on to your christian faith in spite of the scientific knowledge that you maybe start to understand.
4) All in all, it is a rather weak argument. Trying to reinterpret the bible to fit modern scientific knowledge is understandable, but it doesn´t make it any better.
The best available information indicates that the age of the universe is 13.7 billion years.

Sorry, try again. The current number (it will undoubtedly change as we observe more) is 13.77 plus or minus 0.059. (0.4% of variance)
If you insist on using "magic" numbers at least show integrity by using the actual numbers. Rounding away at closest 0.2 billion years is bad voodoo.
