Video: What Really Happened 5773 Years Ago? - Jewish World - News - Israel National News

According to this article, Rosh Hashannah often is mistakenly considered the birthday of the Creation of the world, which actually started six days earlier. What do you think?

I think it irrelevant. "What Really Happened 5773 Years Ago" is in my opinion the province of science, not Jewish theology. See, for example, 40th Century BC.

(And, yes, according to Jewish lore Creation occurred on the 25th day of Elul.)
