the bible isn't speaking of a 24 hr day in mans calander.<quoted text>
Is the Biblical claim that the Earth was created in six days accurate? Because that is demonstrably false. And nowhere does it say the Hebrew word for "day", yom, in Genesis is anything other than a 24 hour period.
So what's up with two millenia of Catholics thinking that wine and crackers turn literally into blood and flesh during the Eucharist?
Sounds to me like you yourself acknowledge that metaphor in the Bible is pretty subjective. Kinda undermines the idea that it's an important book of instructions left by a powerful deity concerned with clarity of message, doesn't it?
the bible says a day unto the Lord is like a thousand years to us.
