Question: You write that Adam HaRishon (the First Man) was created close to 6,000 years ago. You do not explain such a huge discrepancy in dates. How do you explain the dating of artifacts (including human remains) in tens or even hundreds of millions of years?
Answer: The Torah writes that 5,780 years ago, there was a human in our world who was the first to discover the upper world. He became similar to the Creator and began to be called “Adam,” from the word “Domeh” (similar) to the Creator. Humans who have not attained the upper world are on the level of animals. The Torah speaks about spiritual levels, not about our physical world.
