BTW, I think it's "cute" that you found a BLOG which agrees with YOU.<quoted text>
No, it doesn't make sense to think that the universe and everything in it was created 144 hours. That's ludicrous.
Again, you are wrong. I don't interpret the Bible the way I see fit, I understand the Bible and what it's saying. You don't.
Here comes your Google search...
Sorry, but Bob is wrong. The Hebrew word Yom has several meanings, basically it's only direct translation to English is either 12 hours, 24 hours or an undetermined amount of time. Now that third one doesn't specify what length of time, could be a second, day, or year, an eon. It all depends on the context and the structure of the sentence, specifically the words before and after. In the context of Genesis the translation would be more correct at "a period of time", not 24 hours.
I do think it's cute that you googled it and found someone that agrees with you, I really do. But it's interesting that after all the sh*t you talk about creationists, when the argument calls for it, you agree with them.
I know you just wanna argue and I could go on for probably months (with you) about this, but here, read.
You ALWAYS cherry-pick to bible to try and get it to conform with what YOU choose to believe.
Doesn't work like that, RR.
Too bad you're not MAN enough to admit that you only believe the parts of the bible which make sense to YOU.
That's the thing with fairy tales- they NEVER make sense.
I might as well cherry-pick "Cinderella" to conform with what is possible and what is not.
Could she have lost a slipper? Sure. Could it have been made out of glass? No.
Could a pumpkin have been turned into a coach? No.
But the POINT is that the entire FAIRY TALE of "Cinderella"- while a beautiful FAIRY TALE- does not make sense.
News flash! Either does the BIBLE- a book of FAIRY TALES.
So you either believe it or you don't- YOU make no sense if you think you can PICK and CHOOSE the parts of the bible you think are literally correct while dismissing the parts of the bible you do NOT think are literally correct.
And according to the bible, the creation WAS 6 LITERAL 24 hour days.
That you find that to be ludicrous- which it most definitely is- does NOT mean the words written mean anything OTHER than 6 LITERAL 24 hour days.
