• A.M. 75
• 3686 B.C.E.
Ascension of Adam age 75 years 2 months.
  This date is based on a hypothesis of the webmaster that Adam did not live 930 solar years, but rather 930 lunar cycles. This hypothesis is in no way based on fact! It is not in Bahá'í Scripture. It is merely one person's supposition, nothing more. Although, see below. Could this not also be aplicable to many of the ancient Prophets and Manifestations?

  #1659. The years of Noah are not Years as we count them and we cannot Substantiate Stories of the Old Testament
  "The years of Noah are not years as we count them, and as our teachings do not state that this reference to year means His dispensation we cannot interpret it this way."
  (From a letter written on behalf of the Guardian to an individual believer, November 25, 1950)
[Lights of Guidance, p. 494]

    • A.M. = Anno Mundi - Latin: "In the year of the world"; Hebrew: "To the creation of the world" - Hebrew Calendar.
    • B.C.E. = Before Christian Era or before A.D. in the Julian Calendar.
  • c. = circa - meaning: "Around, round about, about. The prep. is often used in Eng. with dates, as circa 1400 (c 1400)." (Oxford English Dictionary)
