I can’t agree that the time elapsed since Adam’s creation is not a religious question.
Genesis is very specific, giving each geneaology, with life spans.
The Jewish calendar reflects that, historically.
There may be a few years of contention, but nothing like thousands of years.
To say man started 35,000 years ago or six million years ago - you are saying that Genesis is incorrect. Which is saying the Scripture is inaccurate. Which is certainly a religious position.
Exactly. Millions of years is a hoax. “Answers in Genesis” with Ken Ham explains it all for those of you who are interested in the truth.
