This is in response to Mr. Rozenblat's question about the age of the Earth.
The best explanation of this topic that I have found so far is from Gerald
Schroeder, Ph.D., an orthodox Jewish physicist, who wrote an excellent book
called "Genesis and the Big Bang." In addition to providing an answer to
this particular question, he addresses many other seeming incongruencies
between science and the bible. By reconciling the two, I think it is
possible to believe most of what science says as well as to accept the Torah
as a Divine document.
