Usher who is he dating now
After consulting astronomical tables, he picked the first Sunday on or after the autumnal equinox to begin the year 4004 BC.
But the equinox occurs around September 21, not October 23.
By the 1700s the English calendar was off by eleven days.
On September 2, 1752, eleven days were dropped from the English calendar to make the seasons start when they were supposed to. These years would normally have been leap years, but instead were made normal years to keep the calendar in line.
At least, it does now, thanks to some juggling of the calendar.
In his research Ussher found that the ancient Jews and the Egyptians did not use the orbit of the moon (lunar calendar) as the basis for their year.
He therefore concluded that God created the world in the autumn.However, when the Gregorian calendar corrections are applied to the Julian date of October 23, 4004 BC, we get the Gregorian date September 21, 4004 BC, which is the normal day for the autumnal equinox.Is there any way that we can verify Ussher’s date for creation?His detailed calculations cover over 100 pages in the original document.
Nowhere in your Bible does it say that the day of creation was October 23.
Dates in secular history become more certain with the founding of the Medo-Persian Empire.
