The book of Genesis suggests an age of 6,000 years based on a clock which began ticking at its present rate after the universe had expanded into its present size. The initial 14-15 billion years of the universe’s birth and expansion would have equaled only 1/100,000 of a second today. The key point here is that our present rate of time, with a week equaling seven 24 hour periods, is the proper rate of time following the early expansion of the universe when the rate of time was a million million times different. At this “modern rate”, the biblical account of six 24 hour periods of creation seems correct and supported by modern cosmological evidence when, and only when, the two time scales are considered.As I said in my review, I liked the physics section quite well. I am not able to completely evaluate it but as nearly as I can tell, it has empirical support.
