My point regarding the Bible is that it is a book written by Man, since Man is fallible then so must his interpretation be.
I was lead to believe the Bible shows the clear genealogy of Jesus, starting with Joseph and ending with Adam. It also shows exactly how long each one
of them lived. For example it says A is the son of B, who lived 50 years. And B is the son of C, who lived 70 years. If you add up all the ages, the
Earth turns out roughly 6,000 years old.

First off, I agree with you, let's not say anything other than this is a book written by men (not singular). Where I disagree is that it leads to a
6,000 year age for the planet Earth. You can read it as such if you wish, that is entirely up to you. I do think parts of the old testament may be a
chronology of figures that did without doubt existed (maybe, to an extent), but to try and use it as a timeline from the creation of Earth is futile.
