The Six Days of Creation
Three out of the four rivers emanating from the Garden of Eden are well-known to us, but the fourth and the actual location of Eden are veiled with obscurity.
Radiometric dating, redshift of light waves from distant galaxies, and the cosmic microwave background — among other sophisticated dating techniques — have drawn the science community to the conclusion that the universe is billions of years old.
Furthermore, archaeological discoveries on all continents of the world have revealed thousands of fossils and skeletons from what would appear to be the era of the dinosaurs, millions of years before the creation of man.
Yet the Torah and mesorah stipulate that the world is less than 6,000 years old. In this penetrating and enthralling work, the layman and scholar alike are guided along a blazing trail of dazzling revelations in the fields of relativity, astrophysics, quantum mechanics, and satellite imagery — to discover incredible synthesis with the literal narrative of the Six Days of Creation.
Rabbi Alexander Hool grew up under the tutelage of his father, Rabbi Maurice Hool of Kingsbury, London, UK. He learned in Gateshead Yeshivah for many years under the direction of the Rosh Yeshivah, Rav Avrohom Gurwitz, and then moved to Israel where he has been studying in the Ponevezh Yeshivah and Kollel for over twenty years.
An eminent scholar, he has developed a particular expertise in history, dating, mathematics, and other unique and intriguing subjects. He is the author of the acclaimed work Toras Yom VoLaylah (on the complex halachic definitions of day, twilight, and night, and their ramifications) and has published a fundamental study on ancient astronomy and its implications regarding the halachic dateline, as well as an analysis of the Murex trunculus as a possible source of the ancient blue dye, techeles. Other recent publications include Shiur HaShiurim (a comprehensive investigation of the classification and calibration of measures and distances used in the Middle East before the Common Era), The Challenge of Jewish History (Mosaica Press, 2015), Searching for Sinai (Mosaica Press, 2018), Pharaoh (Mosaica Press, 2020), and The Desert Encampments (Mosaica Press, 2021).
