mormonism and the age of the earth

an interesting article about different possibilities for the age of the earth according to scripture and science.

particularly interesting is the multiple uses of the number 1000 (one thousand) in hebrew:
This follows the Hebrew use of "thousand" ('elef), which sometimes meant a literal one thousand, and other times was more generically used to indicate "a large amount."
it would be cool to see examples of both in use somewhere.
