He used the time period markings of other planets. God created the universe, or so Christians say, actually in one day on Pluto. If he made the other planets before Earth, this is one way he could've known. Although, I'm not Christian. Just a girl with a logical answer.

Since the earth was already created and in existence before God created light (Gen. 1:1-3), 24-hour days were possible for each of the days of the creation week (including the first day). Only light and a rotating earth are needed for a day, and they were both created on day one.

If you say that God is omniscient and knew how long a day would be, that means he plans out everything in the future and we're all pre-determined. How depressing (not to mention pointless from God's point of view)

in the bible it does not define what exactly a day is in "human terms" God's time and our time could have been completly different... nevertheless he created earth in six days... on God time OR human time.... not a very deep theological ?tion....

Toneman, the bible does actually state that Jesus is divine, I have read both the greek, hebrew, and latin versions and I can show you where it is said.

There's a gap between what we perceive and what reality is, which explains why it is difficult to either prove a God's existence or classify it. All that really matters is if your faith pays off or not when you die, because you will not be able to justify your beliefs in any rational way to someone with an opposing view, so what's the point of arguing about it?

Because he is God. He decided to make a day long, and made the Earth (the "only" planet that supports life) how ong he made a day.

God created the Heavens and the Earth in their entirety; therefore, God chose how long a day would be.

Actually, XxNaruNaruxX, dinosaurs are NOT mentioned in the Bible. Creationists that so badly want their 2000 year old 'Gospel' to be true, make it true by changing translation. The mention of leviathan and the like are not dinosaurs. That is simply what your pastor is pounding in your head.

Baalthazaq, you are absolutely correct. Much is lost in translations. In fact, there is indisputable proof that that much of the New Testament was mistranslated to fit Christian teaching. The man Jesus never claimed to be divine in the original manuscripts. It's a fact.

I would also like to point out that the newest book in the Bible is approximately 2000 years old. Modern science is only about 200. The Bible is not a science book nor a history book!

Actually it DOES mention "dinosaurs" in the Bible- not the exact words but it does describe "large, lizard-like creatures" in some of the books in the Bible. It's usually important to read up on what you're trying to put down, Pyrosisflame.

Heh, going through a few literal translations, you could even argue Young's literal translation seems to suggest day 1-6 were a design phase. ;)

Compare Genesis 1, day 6, in a literal translation:
"And God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them."

With Genesis 2:7 in the same translation:
"And Jehovah God formeth the man -- dust from the ground, and breatheth into his nostrils breath of life, and the man becometh a living creature"

Toneman: It's obvious you didn't read my post.
I read the source, I read it in English. I'm wondering if the English is still accurate to at least the Hebrew.

Also, are you talking specifically about the KJV, RSV, etc? Are you using a literal translation, a free translation, or a dynamic equivalent translation?

I ask, because for example certain passages become unclear after translation depending on the type.

According to some translations, Sarah was Abraham's wife, whereas Hagar was his "woman". Even though in the original Hebrew the same word is used for both Hagar and Sarah.

Other important changes that occur in translation is when Jesus is asked if he is the son of God, he replies "That's what you say" in a literal translation, but in many versions it is translated as "yes" or even worse "that is what you say" with an added "and you are correct".

Translation matters.

Man created how long a day is. God can make a day last as long or short as he wants. It never says how long a day is in the bible.

Baalthazaq, it's quite obvious that you haven't read the source. The reason the question hasn't been asked is because the Bible makes it very clear that the mythical creation of all things took place in six days and rested on the seventh.

Day 1) Heaven and Earth, light and dark, day and night and it was awesome.

Day 2) Firmament and waters and it was awesome.

Day 3) Land and sea, grass and trees and it was awesome.

Day 4) Seasons, stars, the sun and the moon and it was awesome.

Day 5) Fish, birds, whales, God told the to screw and it was awesome.

Day 6) Earth creatures, cows, bugs, a dude and a chick and told them to screw and it was awesome.

Day 7) Rest. Creating an entire universe is hard work, after all!

But then if you read the second chapter of Genesis, there is a completely different account of how man and woman were created.

Incidentally, there's one thing no one seems to have mentioned, and I'm curious.

Does the bible say God created everything in or on 6 days? They mean extremely different things.

"In 6 days" potentially suggests 2 things. First, that it took him 144 hours, and second that it was within 144 hours. Neither of those things are things I agree with.

Extending or shrinking the value of a day based on Peter (1000 years) or the more flexible Genesis translation, still makes it seem like God is working for long periods of time, does he do that or does he make things occur instantly in under a second?

"On 6 days" on the other hand suggests none of that at all. It merely suggests that God interfered 6 times in the universe, with no suggestion of timescales.

Day 1 could easily be a billion years before Day 2.

Can anyone translate Hebrew and tell me if there's a possible translation there?
