So much to do and so little time to do it.

The Wikipedia has this to say about chronology:
Event Year AM Year BCE (non-biblical) Span
Creation of Adam 0 3924 BCE 0
Birth of Abram (Genesis 11:26) 1948 1976 BCE 1948
Promise to Abraham 2048 1906 BCE 70
Birth of Isaac 2148 1876 BCE 100
Descent into Egypt 2235 1686 BCE 190
Exodus from Egypt (Exodus 12:40) 2448 1476 BCE 210 (430 from Promise to Abraham; 400 from Birth of Isaac)
Foundation of Solomon's Temple (1 Kings 6:1) 2928 997 BCE 480
Destruction of Temple 3338 587 BCE 410
Return from exile (Ezra 1:2-4) 3626 535 BCE 52
Personally I think that the reams of begats and begans in the Bible were put in to sort the wheat from the chaff. Anyone who can wade through all that stuff and remain interesting, deserves to go to heaven.
Everyone else will have to stay here on earth and live happily ever after without all those religious maniacs.
