In my new book "The Genesis One Code" I share my formula for converting "Creation Days" to years as we know them in calculating the age of the universe, the sun, and life on Earth. Without any modifications, the formula consistently produces results that match scientific estimates. To become an engineer I studied engineering physics, which had a large physics and cosmology component. I realized then that some answers were missing in science, and continued to search for them both in science and in Kabbalah, which I began studying 13 years ago. This led me to writing my first book The Genesis One Code.
This is the first book to rigorously reconcile the religious and scientific accounts of our origins, written in response to most people’s quandary about the origins of the universe and life, and the seemingly incompatibility between the biblical description and the latest scientific findings.
Complementing the book their is a free companion iPhone app, Bible Clock (itunes.apple.com/us/app/bible-clock/id514838950?mt=8), users can quickly convert from the biblical timeline of the six days of creation to the scientific timeline of billions of years and vice versa.
The next time that you hear on the radio of a fossil discovery from 500 million years ago, enter that scientific time in the Bible Clock to find the corresponding biblical time and explore what other events were going on around the same time.
Conversely, the next time you read Genesis and want to know when an event like 'let there be light' occurred in scientific terms, enter the approximate biblical time, i.e., day 1.
The formula produced more than 20 Bible/science matches for events described in Genesis. I focused on the 'what' and 'when' because those questions can be addressed with a detached, scientific perspective.
