earth is having an age then it is having a beginning and if it has a beginning then it has been created by a creator because it cannot begin itself by itself. Quran asked man to probe and know how creation began it opines. ‘And say more on earth and see how creation has began” This Quranic verse indicates many points. It tells us that probing issues related to beginning of earth would enable Man to know how creation has began and that such a divine will enable man to realize age of existence of may creations on earth. The six days which has been mentioned in Quran was duration for creation of cosmos is indicating various periods in which cosmos has undergone process of creation. It is not similar in its duration to days which man knows today. This six days (six periods) have been divided into three periods: Firstly, two days (one period) for creation of earth from smoking sky. The skies and earth were one unit and they were separated by an explosion. Secondly, two days (one period) for creation of seven skies. Thirdly, two days (one period) for managing boons and maintenance for those who will need it. Dr. Mansoor assumed that there is a vast period which separates creation of earth and creation of Man. If above three periods are manipulated for purpose of calculating age of earth, then period between creation of earth and appearance of Man which has been estimated to be 4.5 billions can be multiplied in three and age of cosmos can be estimated to be 13.5 billion years. Some other scientists estimate age of cosmos in different ways depending on cosmos extension, red displacement, etc. Depending on these factors estimate age of cosmos to be 13 or 15 billions years.

As adults, we face daily choices: take easy way out and just go along for ride, or do best we can do and be best we can be. I am sure every one of us chooses both options several times a day. Let's be conscious of those decisions today.
