Age_of_the_universeThis is a transcript of a lecture given by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan z’tl which discusses the question of the age of the Universe according to Torah thought: Is it around 6000 years old or billions? Rabbi Kaplan goes through various approaches to this question, and concludes with a view based on authoritative sources from over 700 years ago, which lead to a very satisfactory answer. Also briefly touching on other interesting topics, this booklet is an important read for anyone wanting a non-apologetic answer to this question.
