Science has found human fossils which are about 200,000 years old. This scientific discovery seriously challenging the fact that Adam was the first human. Therefore, Muslims have to avoid this challenge and thus they make lame excuses that Islam does not tell when Adam came. Similarly, Muslim claim that Adam was 30 meters long and after him human started to reduce in size till Muhammad. But then we have fossils of Mummy's and others which are 5000 to 200,000 years and none of them is like 30 meters long. Therefore, once again Muslims have to deny that Adam came 6000 years.

Proofs from Quran & Sunnah that Adam came 6,000 years ago

Saudi Official Fatwa Website gave authentic Traditions about times between different prophets from Muhammad to Adam.

1) Jesus and Muhammad: 600 years (Reference: Bukhari)

2) Adam and Noah: 10 Centuries i.e. 1000 years (Reference: Sahih Ibn Habban and Imam Hakim which is authentic according to

3) Noah and Ibraheem: 10 Centuries (Reference: Same tradition as above about Adam and Noah in Mustadrak al-Hakim, which is authentic according to

4) Moses and Jesus: 1700 years (al-Tabqaat and Fath-ul-Bari, which is authentic according to

5) Ibraheem and Moses: Bible says it was 245 years gap between these 2 prophets. And bible tells the genealogy between them as: Abraham-Jacob-Levi-Kohath-Amran(Imran)-Moses (i.e. 5 generations)

Islam gives the same genealogy. Ibn Kathir and Al-Tabari, recorded this tradition.

قد ذكرنا أولاد يعقوب , إسرائيل الله , وعددهم وموالدهم ، فحَدَّثَنَا ابن حميد ، قَالَ : حَدَّثَنَا سلمة بن الفضل ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إسحاق ، قَالَ : " ثم إن لاوى بن يعقوب نكح نابتة ابنة ماري بن يشخر ، فولدت له : غرشون بن لاوى ومرزى بن لاوى ومردى بن لاوى وقاهث بن لاوى ، فنكح قاهث بن لاوى فاهى ابنة مسين بن بتويل بن إلياس ، فولدت له : يصهر بن قاهث ومردي ، فتزوج يصهر شميث ابنة بتاديد بن بركيا بن يقسان بن إبراهيم ، فولدت له : عمران بن يصهر ، وقارون بن يصهر , فنكح عمران يحيب ابنة شمويل بن بركيا بن يقسان بن إبراهيم ، فولدت له : هارون بن عمران ، وموسى بن عمران

Therefore, if we take one generation between 40 to 50 years, then it makes the 200 to 250 years (same as Bible which states 245 years).

If we all these, then even according to Islam too Adam came about 6,000 years.
