Creation to Noah’s birth 1056 by adding the above except for Noah’s 500 years

Noah exits the Ark at 600 years old, Shem 100 years old. (Genesis 6:28,29; 11:10)

Creation to Flood 1656 years

Assume the years from Noah>Ham>Cush>Nimrod to be approximately 200 years. Ham’s line is not specified in years, only that of Shem, so allow the equivalent in that brother's family line: Shem>Arphaxad>Eber>Peleg = 201 years. (Genesis 11)

Creation to Nimrod 1656 + approximately 200  = approximately 1856 years

Approximate date of Uruk 3200 to 3000 BC (city founded by Nimrod, Genesis 10:10)

Creation to Christ between 5056 and 4856 years (maximum 1856+3200=5056, minimum 1856+3000=4856)

Present date approximately 2000 (calendars for Christ’s birth vary by as much as a decade)

Approximate age of the Earth between 7011 and 6856 years
