".......Meni, or Manai, signifies "The Numberer." And it is by the changes of the moon that the months are numbered: Psalm civ. 19, "He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth the time of its going down." The name of the "Man of the Moon," or the god who presided over that luminary among the Saxons, was Mane, as given in the "Edda," and Mani, in the "Voluspa."....."
[from The Two Babylons by Free Church of Scotland minister Alexander Hislop ]
"....The full moon cycle is a cycle of about 14 lunations ..."

"...The best measurement of the age of the universe is 13.798±0.037 billion years
"...NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) project's nine-year data release in 2012 estimated the age of the universe to be 13.772±0.059×109 years
"... In 2013, the European Space Agency's Planck spacecraft team estimated the age of the universe to be 13.82 billion years,
"...The first reasonably accurate measurement of the rate of expansion of the universe, a numerical value now known as the Hubble constant, was made in 1958 by astronomer Allan Sandage
"...Sandage and other astronomers repeated these measurements...(...)..and thus increase the resulting age for the universe....(....)....using these new models for stellar evolution, the estimated age of the oldest known star is 14.46±0.8 billion years.
