Johannes Kepler (1610)

On this date, God created the universe, according to the German mathematician, astronomer, and mystic Johannes Kepler, considered a founder of modern science. He used biblical chronology to arrive at his date. Also, a rare astronomical conjunction in 1604 helped Kepler become first to derive the supposed birth year of Christ, that is now universally accepted.

As for Kepler’s calculation about the universe’s birthday, scientists in the 20th century developed the Big Bang theory, which showed that his calculations were off by about 13.7 billion years.
