Two-thirds of the scientists gave the same answer: "Beginning? Aristotle and Plato taught us 2400 years ago that the universe is eternal.
Oh, we know the Bible says 'In the beginning.' That's a nice story, but we sophisticates know better. In 1965, Penzias and Wilson discovered the echo of the Big Bang in the black of the sky at night, and the world paradigm changed from a universe that was eternal to a universe that had a beginning.
The first thing we have to understand is the origin of the Biblical calendar.
We have a clock that begins with Adam, and the six days are separate from this clock. That might seem like a modern rationalization, if it were not for the fact that Talmudic commentaries 1500 years ago, brings this information.
In the Midrash (Vayikra Rabba 29:1), an expansion of the Talmud, all the Sages agree that Rosh Hashanah commemorates the soul of Adam, and that the Six Days of Genesis are separate. Because time is described differently in those Six Days of Genesis.
The Jewish year is figured by adding up the generations since Adam. On Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, upon blowing the shofar, the following sentence is said: "Hayom Harat Olam ― today is the birthday of the world." This verse might imply that Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of the universe. Rosh Hashanah commemorate the creation of the Neshama, the soul of human life.
Additionally, there are six days leading up to the creation to Adam. We start counting our 5700-plus years from the creation of the soul of Adam.
After 3000 years of arguing, science has come to agree with the Torah.
