Physics Engineer Daniel Friedmann's Formula Provides Key to Biblical Clock(April 18, 2012)
TAMPA, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 04/18/12 -- In his new book "The Genesis One Code" (www.genesisonecode.com), engineering physicist Daniel Friedmann shares his formula for converting "Bible time" 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.
With the 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.
"Next time 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," he says.
"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."
In "Genesis One Code," Friedmann explains how he developed the formula - 1,000 X 365 X 7,000 -- from references in religious texts.
"The formula is simple," says the CEO of the Canadian aerospace company known for creating the robotics used on the international space station.
"The Bible tells us in Psalms that one day for God is 1,000 years for us. We know that 365 days is our solar year, and from other studies of the scriptures we can conclude that one creation day in Genesis equals 7,000 God years.
"Multiply those numbers and you find that in years as we know them, each creation day is an epoch of 2.56 billion years," Friedmann says. The age of the universe, when calculated using the formula, is 13.74 billion years. Science puts it at 13.75 billion, plus or minus 0.13 billion.
Friedmann's 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," Friedmann says.
"Now the debate can focus on the 'how' and 'why.'"
