On Sunday, October 23, 4004 BC, the Universe came into existence… This according to James Ussher (1581-1656), Anglican Archbishop of Armagh, and Primate of All Ireland. Ussher was also able to determine some startlingly accurate dates for other biblical dates, including Monday, November 10, 4004 BC as being the day Adam and Eve were driven from Paradise and Wednesday, May 5, 2345 BC as the date when Noah and his ark landed upon Mt. Ararat.
