Time Period: Approximately 1,700 years in duration.
Key Events: The Second Age began approximately 6,000 years ago with God renewing the earth's surface and its atmosphere (its heaven). God created life as we know it today in six literal 24-hour days. He created Adam and Eve in His own image. (Genesis 1:3-28)
Adam and Eve sinned when Satan tempted them and, as a consequence, God's curse fell upon them and all of their descendants. Thus, sin and death entered the human world.
(Genesis 3:1-7, Romans 5:12) The wickedness of men multiplied. Some of the fallen angels had ungodly relationships with women.
The Second Age ended approximately 4,300 years ago with the destruction of Noahid^s world by a global flood, but God saved Noah and his family. (Genesis 6, Genesis 7)
