    In the adult Sunday School lesson yesterday the following points were taught as factually and literally correct.

    1. We are at the start of the 7th seal.
    2. Each 'seal' represents 1,000 earth years.
    3. The seals started with the creation of Adam.
    4. The creative periods of the earth are also 1,000 earth years.

    Doing the simple math means:

    A. Adam was created circa 4,000 bc. (also specified in LDS canon chronology)
    B. The earth, being created in 6 periods leading up to Adam is, therefore, 10,000 years old.
    C. The entire diversity of human and mammal life was wiped out except for the contents of the ark at between 2,000 and 3,000 bc.

    We were also instructed that if science etc produces information that doesn't fit with this then we were to ignore it because Mormonism is right. (I'm paraphrasing but the message was exactly this).
