How long were the days of Genesis?
http://creation.com/how-long-were-the-days-of...
I am not discussing how many hours were in the day Created ending in Ge 1:5, nor the other six (6) days. I am asking "How much time lapsed between Ge 1:1 and 1:5.

Ge 1:1 and 1:2 are not in anyway part of the first day creation.

The Bible begins with the creation of the universe: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1 NIV).

This single verse describes the actual transformation of invisible energy into all of the fundamental physical matter (as summed up in Albert Einstein's famous E=mc2 equation) that would be formed into stars, planets and everything else - including us. Scientists now estimate that the great event took place approximately 15 billion years ago.

The next verse (1:2)describes the earth after its creation, long after the creation of the universe: "Now the earth was [or became] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and The Spirit of God was hovering over the waters" (Genesis 1:2 NIV). Scientists estimate the age of the earth to be about 5 billion years old - leaving an estimated 10 billion years between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2.

You, Michael, have a "monopoly" on trash talking, bad mouthing and "overstated (National Inquirer -"distorted" statistics, which "sets you apart" from (anyone else) on this forum...... The difference is that I believe that all Christians are "brothers and sisters in Christ" of which Protestants (after being one for over 35 years) have "rejected" (many parts) of the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the Biblical TRUTHS that the Catholic Church received over 2000 years ago from the Apostles, passed on by Jesus HIMSELF--whereas--you just continue to (dig up) and "spread" whatever "garbage statistics, heretical opinions, and "editorialized anti-catholic articles, that you can get you hostile "greasy hands on"!!
Are you posting from an underground bunker surrounded by barbed wire?

How does it feel to be condemned by so many of your "Brothers and Sisters in Christ," most of whom you also condemn.

Ever hear of the 30 Years War? The Hundred Years War?

That's what paranoid hojos of the world would call Brotherhood Wars I suppose.

Too bad that the (anti-Catholic) American ideals that you so hate so much put an end to such brotherhood. I would love to see how many brothers your RCC's "perfect teachings on morals" could kill today! Sure worked for your Italian brothers against African tribes people in the early days of WW-2 (aka Mary's Revenge).

But above all, never forget -- the world is against you and your church.

Hold on there Confrint. Soc is inserting his own ideology on the Book of Revelation and implying John Prophecized the Catholic Church. I did the responsible thing by telling him of his sin, and reminding Soc what's going to happen to him for adding to Johns prophecy. This is serious stuff. Hell is no joke!
Why would you come out against me for this??
I pray you don't agree with Soc. If so, I encourage you to keep it to yourself or risk the same fate as others who add to the Book of Revelation.

God creates heaven and earth.(1,2) The creation of light.(3-5) God separates the earth from the waters, and makes it fruitful.(6-13) God forms the sun, moon, and stars.(14-19) Animals created.(20-25) Man created in the image of God.(26-28) Food appointed.(29,30) The work of creation ended and approved.(31)

Note of interest....the sun, moon, and stars were not Created until day 4. So, the length of days 1,2, and 3 could have been most any length of time.

God measures one day to be 1,000 years!!‘But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.’

"God measures..."

Too bad modern medicine, modern forensic science, America's legal system and America's defense system are not based on fundie Biblical, anti-evolution, anti-science ideals.

Then we could all be as backward and small minded as the fundies. The stars are for signs and we could all go to family parties to pick up chicks, just like Adam and Eve's kids.

A rabbi and his two friends, a priest and a minister, played poker for small stakes
once a week. The only problem was that they lived in a very conservative blue-law
town. The sheriff raided their game and took all three before the local judge.

After listening to the sheriff's story, the judge sternly inquired of the priest:
"Were you gambling, Father?"

The priest looked toward heaven, whispered, "Oh, Lord, forgive me!" and then said
aloud: "No, your honor, I was not gambling."

"Were you gambling, Reverend?" the judge asked the minister. The minister repeated
the priest's actions and said, "No, your honor, I wasn't."

Turning to the third clergyman, the judge asked: "Were you gambling, Rabbi?"

I disagree.
"to know yourself is to know the kingdom of God."
The difference between yours and mine is that Jesus explains the path simply and concise on how to attain salvation.
Yours, directs the individual to listen to him, so he can teach the path.
BTW - Self is the key factor in both. Jesus referring to his Self, and then him telling others to believe in their Self.
LOL - the only problem with your philosophy is - JESUS NEVER SAID THAT!!!

Every inch of Catholicsm can some way, shape or form be found in scripture.
Unlike the Pentecostal movement, the CC didn't read Bible passages and then form a Church.
The Church, Sacred tradition, and Sacred Scripture flow together in one breath.
It was the Church and Sacred tradition that gave the world the Bible.
Remember, Jesus Christ nor His Apostles never commanded a Bible be produced.
It takes a brave bold individual to snatch the Scriptures from the Church and use it against her.

Besides Confrint, what good does it do to read Sacred Scripture from the eyes of a 21st century lense? Why not read the writings of the first Christians if you're truly interested in what those Bible verses mean..

The Bible actually says;

'It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.'

and

'As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him.'

No mention of the 'first christians' Clay. Your teachers are FALSE.
