And so is Samson Rephael Hirsch for that matter... presuming any of the Haredi Rabbinate read Hirhurim.

Money quote
However, the Rabbis have never made the acceptance or rejection of this [theory of the age of the universe] and similar possibilites an article of faith binding on all Jews. They were willing to live with any theory that did not reject the basic truth that "every beginning is from God."
Props to Gil for doing his small part to bring SRH back from the dead. If any great Rabbi needs an image overhaul, SRH is the one...

Wondering.... What would R' Mordecai Plaut say about this?
