    time since creation seeming 'paradox' between Torah and science
    Yashar koach Kol HaKavod @Rabbi Yosef Yitxchak

    p s c/o e.g. Gerald Schroeder paradox of age of world = matter of whether point of view is from outset compared to present looking rearwards, factoring in relativistic principles ... excuse me that one may refer one to this source, apparent time is related to rate of movement ... first day turns out to look as several billion years from our naive point of view - when looking from initiation, corresponds to a day ... as rate decreases, days are shorter yet relativistically ... the calculations concur fascinatingly enough - the year 5773 corresponds to our appreciation of the time since Creation from our perspective! pls excuse my limitations and errors are mine -> recommend rxplore Schroeder's treatise - re next to ultimate question :-) Todah Rabbah to ALL  Shalo*m uvracha v'Chag Sameach l'Kulam

    question on paradox between science and torah
    The Paradox used in this question is not real because Hashem created the world already fully created ( meaning didnt plant one egg, had chickens like they were for thousands of years) so it can give the impression that its billions of years old

    Deuteronomy 6:4 not 11

    Leviticus 11 is about kosher...not Yom Kippur
