In previous posts or comments, I may have falsely stated that Rabbi Dr. Dovid Gottlieb of Ohr Somayach advocates the "Gosse" theory - that the earth was created 5766 years ago with the appearance of being billions of years old. While that statement - if I made it - may be true, as I believed it was, I now realise that I based myself on a careless reading of his website. I do not know whether he considers the Gosse theory possible, probable or certain. All I can say with self-assurance is that he does not totally reject it. Of course, you can form your own opinion on the matter by looking here. It's a nice, concise, well-argued summary of some points discussed on this blog a few months ago.
