James Ussher, Bishop of Armagh worked it out as 8:00AM, October 22nd, BC 4004, and John Lightfoot of Cambridge University adjusted it to 9:00AM, October 23, BC. I haven't seen the creation time of 6:30 before but I suppose this is the result of further adjustment. In case the calendar files don't mention it, Adam and Eve were expelled from Eden on November 10, 4004 BC and the flood ended on May 5th, 1491 BC. I don't recall seeing what times those events occurred at.
