Your counting is off by 1.  As there is no zero year, you start counting at one.  The 21st didn't start until 2001.  It's ok many people get that wrong.
  Now my original stance that after the Big Bang we started at zero and did not reach the 1 billion year mark until after a billion years had passed,so by this calculation we are in the 14th billion year timeline(even though the Universe is only 13.77 billion years old). Why, because we started counting time at zero.

It's somewhere around the

5,026,050,000,000 day

but it looks like there could be a 10 million day margin of error. So it's hard to tell what day of the week it should be. I wonder if leap year still counts before the solar system formed?

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Well the 13.77 (just revised to about 50 million years more than that) is accurate to only four significant figures, so any calculation of the days could not be more accurate than that.

Oh I dunno. I'm still in a daze :devil:

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Day 14 will be a day of peace, ie 1000 years of peace.

Good, we only have 300 million years to wait. :P

The bible doesn't count until the first day was over.
