In the Beginning

In the beginning God created . . .
I just had to say that, at exactly 9am, because 9am on 23rd of October, 4004 BC, the world was apparently created by God who kept a very tight schedule.

“Dr. John Lightfoot, (1602 – 1675), an Anglican clergyman, rabbinical scholar, and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge had already arrived at an estimate of 4004-OCT-23 BCE, at 9 AM.”
The date, based on James Ussher’s scientific research, was printed in many King James Bibles.
The late Stephen Jay Gould, however, played with the date enough to bring Ussher’s date back to Oct 23, 1997. At noon, to be exact . . .
The Freemasons are not at all impressed by these dates. Hope they dont list me on their website for research errors.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)

  • Andrew I am trying to figure this out. You move and the first thing you write about is “the end of the world.” Interesting!!
    Seriously, I am glad the journey went well. My prayers continue to go with you. Am looking forward to continuing to see God’s tremendous work in your life.
