How old is the Canadian Shield?
The Canadian shield are some of the oldest rocks on the Earth. According to the Bible, it is around 6000 years old. NOT billions of years old. Answer: The Canadian Shield contains the first solid land to be elevated above the sea level. The oldest of the rocks are precambrian in origin and were formed some 2.5 billion years ago. This makes the Shield about half as old as the Earth itself (4.5 billion years)

If the world is 6000 years old why is the Jewish calendar at 5700?
The Jewish year is 5774 (fall 2013 to fall 2014), not 5700. The number is based upon traditional counting of years and figuring of generations back to Creation on the basis of years and 24-hour days. There is a Talmudic tradition that when the world reaches 6000 years that will be the time (or sooner) when the messiah will arrive and a millennium (1,000 years) of peace will begin. Many religious Jews believe the world is under 6,000 years old and that the messiah will eventually arrive. Not all non-religious Jews share this belief. While many may wish for a millennium of peace, they note that the world is facing so many calamities that in 30 years it is possible that if humankind doesn't figure out how to manage our planet and provide for its living inhabitants better than we are now, that perhaps the millennium will be one of devastation and ruin instead. Answer: The Jewish calendar is at less than 6000 years because the world is less than 6000 years old according to traditional chronology.
