I enjoyed reading your article 6000 Year Timeline.
I did a similar study but came to a different conclusion. I am using this email to share my findings with you because I believe they can help us both.
I counted the geologies from when Adam & Eve were expelled to the end of the Old Testament to come to 4,167 years or the 4th day since Adam & Eve’s expulsion. Jesus Christ appeared on this earth 2006 years ago which when added to the 4,167 comes to 6,173 years since Adam & Eve’s expulsion. Since 1 day is 1,000 years to God this would be day 6.
It’s important to understand that this day 6 is not over! I don’t know when it will be over but I can tell you it wouldn’t be any longer than 827 years. Jesus said the generation that sees what he describes in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 would not pass away. I think you’d agree these things are happening now so we are the generation that is going to see those things. This means that since a generation lasts around 100 years maybe, this is just a guess the end is 82 years away?
What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks for comment and question.
Well, you may want to check your assumption that Jesus came 2006 years ago in 1 BCE. Most place it much earlier and my own conclusion based on the Star of Bethlehem (as you read if you signed up for my newsletter) is 3 BCE.
More importantly, the 7th millenial day starts at 6,001 years from adam’s rule, not 7,001 (since the 1st day is 0001 to 1000, 2nd 1001 to 2000, etc.). If we are already 6173 years from adam’s rule as you contend, then there obviously is a problem since Jesus’ rule should have begun 172 years ago. Most place Jesus coming much earlier than you do, perhaps around 3999 or 4000 years from creation, placing it at the end of the 4th millennial day from creation, just as the sun came forth on the 4th day of creation week (see Eugene Faulstich’s chonology).
Also, I’ve never heard anyone give a definition of a biblical generation that could possibly fit 100 years. The biblical generation seems to be just like we define it today, a few decades it takes for one to grow and raise children of their own. It’s not a lifespan, which is still much less than 100 years.
Hope this helps you.

An Ipsos poll in 2006 found that 25% of adults believed it was at least "somewhat likely" that "Jesus Christ will return to Earth" in the coming year. Among white evangelical Christian adults, a whopping 46% believed this. Yet eight years later Jesus still has not returned.
