Happy Birthday

In case you missed it, yesterday, October 23, was our happy little planet's birthday... according to James Ussher (1581-1656), the Archbishop of Armagh, Primate of All Ireland, and Vice-Chancellor of Trinity College in Dublin.

Following exhaustive research on the Bible, the good bishop calculated that the earth was created on Sunday, October 23, 4004 BC. By-the-way, Adam and Eve were put in time out on Monday, November 10, 4004 BC, and Noah's ark touched down on Mt. Ararat on May 5, 2348 BC -- that was on a Wednesday -- according to the bishop's calculations.

One Kansas wag recommends that you "get your very own copy of this masterwork, The Annals of the World, before it becomes a required text for Kansas school children."

You can read a portion of it here.
