In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 1:1 This beginning of time, according to our chronology, happened at the start of the evening preceding the 23rd day of October in the year of the Julian Calendar, 710.By the middle of the 19th century, Ussher's chronology came under increasing attack from supporters of uniformitarianism, who argued that Ussher's "young Earth" was incompatible with the increasingly accepted view of an Earth much more ancient than Ussher's.Ussher referred to his dating of creation on the first page of Annales in Latin and on the first page of its English translation Annals of the World (1658).In the following extract from the English translation, the phrase "in the year of the Julian Calendar" refers to the Julian Period, of which year 1 is 4713 BC, and therefore year 710 is 4004 BC.Modern equations place the autumnal equinox of 4004 BC on Sunday, October 23 (by the Julian calendar).Ussher's understanding of creation placed the "first day" referred to in Genesis 1:5 on October 23, but with a "pre-creation" event, which he identified as the "beginning of time" occurring the previous night.

News."They are extremely happy and the way it was done was very sweet and romantic," one insider tells us.The chronology is sometimes associated with young Earth creationism, which holds that the Universe was created only a few millennia ago by God as described in the first two chapters of the biblical book of Genesis.Published in 1650, the full title of Ussher's work in Latin is Annales Veteris Testamenti, a prima mundi origine deducti, una cum rerum Asiaticarum et Aegyptiacarum chronico, a temporis historici principio usque ad Maccabaicorum initia producto ("Annals of the Old Testament, deduced from the first origins of the world, the chronicle of Asiatic and Egyptian matters together produced from the beginning of historical time up to the beginnings of Maccabees").Neither Usher nor Miguel have spoken publicly about the nuptials, but Miguel, eight years Usher’s senior, has worked as the artist’s manager for more than three years, though the two began dating in 2009.Usher’s first marriage, to Tameka Foster, lasted just two years and ended the year he began dating Miguel.
