Fact of the Day: Jewish Creation

While The Gregorian calendar is the most commonly used calendar system in the world, there does exist others. One of them is the Hebrew Calendar, and as of October 2016 it is the year 5777 in the Hebrew Calendar. The years are counted from the year of the religious "creation of the world" found in all three major Abrahamic religions .

I place my faith in the age of the Earth in science, not religion.
