Happy Birthday, Earth

The Earth turned 6015 years old yesterday says Bishop Ussher. According to his calculations God created the earth on October 23, 4004 BC. At approximately 10 a.m. I thought this was extremely interesting considering the fact that no one can actually know exactly. I like these sorts of situations where the problem is truly unsolvable. How we humans can never find out when the earth formed. Ussher also said that it looks horrible for its age. That she actually looks 4.55 billion years old.
I find this remarkable because even though we realize how bad of a state our world is in we don’t do anything to help it. I feel that there should be an international program to help our world out a bit. Because considering the status of it, the only way we’re ever going to get anything done is little by little.
