Lecture by Swami Tyagananda on the 23rd of October at the Ramakrishna Vedanta Society, Boston.
According to Bishop James Ussher (1581-1656), God created the universe on October 23, 4004 BC. That belief makes the universe 6014 years old now. James Ussher was an Irish Archbishop whose chronology of Biblical history was widely accepted throughout Christianity for a long time. This along with stories from the Bible, other traditions and the Vedantic view of creation are discussed.
