    I'm working on a document that analyses the genealogies in the Bible. The
    web-page is here:


    Basically, according to the Bible, it looks the Flood happened 1,656 years
    after Adam was created, give or take a year. So a world-wide flood happened
    1,656 years after the first human was created.

    In that document I assumed that the ancestors of Jesus after Abraham gave
    birth to their sons at the average age of 40. Based on that assumption, the
    Flood happened in 2552 BC, and the creation of Adam (the first human) was
    3916 BC.

    This means that there shouldn't be any tools or cities around that aren't
    covered by Flood sediments that are older than 4600 years old - unless the
    Flood wasn't global. This also means that there were no humans living more
    than 6000 years ago.

    I was wondering what creationists and Christian evolutionists thought about
    this including the accuracy of my document.
