The book of Genisis says creation happened in six days, and the Bible clearly states it was indeed days, but this doesn't mean it happened six thousand years ago.
The evidence, as pointed out to me in another thread, strongly points to a very old earth (young compared to universe standards I suppose,) I know the geneologies in Genisis are used to figure out when it happened, but it should be obvious to anyone, especially when learning of uninterrupted historical accounts from the supposed time period exist, that this method of calculating the age of the earth is flawed.
So I accept my mistake in regards to this. I commited an error thinking this way and insisting upon it for most of my life. However, the earth being 4.7 billion years old (she hides her age well I'd say) I do not see why Genisis couldn't just be an accurate account of the first six days.
I dare not commit the fallacy of circular reasoning and claim the bible proves itself, I rather hold to the posistion that it takes faith and faith alone to believe this.
That being said, I understand there to be alot of evidence in favor of evolution, and ID never sounded convincing to me(being born deaf), but could it be, as most of civilization lived without the discovery of evolution for many years, that the discovery of how the creation account can fit into science rests undiscovered?
Thank you for your time.
