A Day Defined!

As I've mentioned before, part of my daily routine involves reading from the Bible first thing in the morning. Today I restarted the Old Testament, page one, chapter one, where the creation of heaven and earth is described. Now I've often heard the text perverted, because the Word says God created the everything in seven days, yet there are those who chose to suggest that those days could have been longer than 24 hours. The reason they do that is science has created this myth that the earth and the universe are billions of years old, but if you add up the time frame in the Bible, it's only about 6000 years, give or take. This limited time frame blows holes in the evolution theory, (note the word theory), as 6000 years isn't a sufficient amount of time for that hypothesis to have occurred.

Put aside what you believe for a moment and let's eliminate the extended day theory using the text available to us. You know, the one passed down from generation to generation since man began to record historical events. Sort of an on hand account of what actually happened, verses letting our imagination run wild in a laboratory so the story fits the science they created. It says....

And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.-Genesis 3-5

Disregarding all the other references to a 24 hour day listed in the Bible, you might encounter someone who suggests the extended days and nights of the polar regions. Even using that as your argument, they fall woefully short of the billions or even millions of years theory, as those periods extend for only six months. So the seven days described in Genesis has a maximum life span of seven years. Hardly the extended time frame science suggests we believe. When an honest scientist is questioned and asked, "How do you know that?" The only truthful reply is, they don't for sure. Me, I'll stick to the written word, since it is as close to an on hand version of what actually happened, and I walk in faith.

God Bless!
