The error message looks like
{RUBY_HOME}/lib/ruby/1.8/date.rb:591:in `new': invalid date 
(ArgumentError)
	from {}db/old_DB.rb:98:in `parseToDate'
	from {}db/old_DB.rb:61:in `callMethod'
	from {}db/old_DB.rb:47:in `callMethod'
...

I am wondering why Ruby converts a String to Fixnum after calling to_i
