[Steve Miller] Larry, It appears that you agree with the approx. 2,000 years
from Adam to Abraham because these years are based totally on
straightforward generational lists with ages. If you agree with that, then
how can you come up with a number much different than 6K years for mankind? 
The following 2,000 yrs from Abraham to Christ does depend on some
interpretation, but I thought that nearly everyone agreed at least
approximately with that figure. You would be the first person I've
encountered who agrees with 2,000 years from Adam to Abraham, but thinks
mankind is much older than 6K years.
