It should be pointed out that in the Biblical way of counting,
the 6000th anniversay [of Creation] will occur in 1996 (that is,
the first and last are both counted). Furthermore, as the date
of October 23 [date given by Bishop Ussher] was in the Julian
calendar, that converts in 1996, to November 5, which happens to
be the day scheduled for the next U.S. presidential election.
