I ask because in a section of his writings, Pascal seems to pose the question of which is more trustworthy with calculating the age of the earth - Moses or Chinese historians. It's obviously posed as a rhetorical question aimed at making the reader feel guilty for even thinking about questioning Moses, so I thought that there would at least be a consensus on how old the earth is based on the Old testament.
Chinese history is definitely recorded since 2100 B.C., but it's mythological history (historians disagree how accurate these accounts may be, but I read on the Internet that some Jesuit missionaries proposed that some of the mythical rulers were actually people in the Old Testament) goes back to 2500 B.C.
Does this contradict the Sacred Scriptures?
It should also be added that the reigns of rulers during the so-called "semi-mythological" earliest part of Chinese history are remarkably well-documented.
