2010 December 13
This chronology shows that one can determine when Adam was created. Read more:

During the last two days I dealt with the Pre-Adamites and with time estimation and this lead to me coming back to a time table I once made and this time table follows here.

It shows that one can determine when Adam was created. The starting point is the year 966 before Christ when the building of the temple started. This year is known from secular history. When one calculates back from this year, then one comes to the year 4174 before Christ as the year when Adam was created.

The importance of the sons is not that they have to be the oldest but whether they are the ancestors of Jesus, whether they are in the line Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Caine and Abel are the better known sons of Adam but Seth was the one who belonged to this line.

Now comes the time table:

Ex 12:40-42 Israelites leave Egypt 2728 (480) 1446
1Ki 6:1 Building of temple started 3208 966

 

The only uncertainty in this table is the year of the birth of Abraham.
According to Genesis 12:4 Abram was 75 years old when he departed out of Haran.
And according to Acts 7:4 Abraham removed himself from Charan when his father was dead.
So this table assumes that Abraham did this the same year his father died, as the time after the death of his father is not given.
The year 966 before Christ for the beginning of the building of the temple comes from secular sources.
