According to one historian, October is the birth month of the earth

In the 1650's an Anglican bishop, James Ussher published his book, Annals of the World: The Origins of Time, a book described by many as the greatest history book ever written, a history that says the world was created in October, 4004 BC making the earth 6,010 years old.

This historic work is a record of the world from the Garden of Eden to the fall of Jerusalem in Ad 70, a work compiled by Ussher who traveled throughout Europe gathering much information from the actual historical documents.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Opposition to Bishop Ussher's calculations of time, the earth's age at around 6,000 years old is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

James Ussher inaugurated biblical history with secular sources to write his historic text, The Annals of the World, which was so highly regarded for its preciseness that the time line from this volume was included in the margins of many King James Version Bibles through the 18th, 19th, and 20th century. Many so-called scholars disagree with Ussher's calculations of time especially the evolutionists who need billions of years for their Theory of Evolution to show how life sprang from non life and mutated from one celled animals into human beings. A growing number of scientists say that both the Theory of Evolution and the Creation model, both used to explain the origins of man, must be taken by faith since the only record that we have of the event is found in the Bible written by Moses thousands of years ago. However, the debate is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

The New Testament writer, Peter stated that in the Last Days, people will deny the return of the Lord Jesus to earth because they will be willfully ignorant or in other words dumb on purpose that God did create the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. That was Peter's statement found in II Peter 3:3-9 which also includes the statement that the Lord is not slack concerning His promise that He will return to the earth.

Bishop Ussher's history of earth and the opposition to it is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
