The Days in Genesis
Genesis 1:5
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day...

I had an argument with someone in my church, a physicist who maintains that the stages of creation were merely undefined "periods" of time that could stretch over millions of years and allow for evolution. Although I pointed out to him that Genesis states that the creative timeframe is one day and that Peter clarifies this is as a thousand of our years (2 Peter 3:8), the physicist refused to look at this logically. He would not acknowledge that the Lord has been very specific about how long the days of creation are.

Interestingly, John saw the history of the earth in vision, and according to his account (which is corroborated by other scripture), the physical age of the earth after the Fall (before the Second Coming) is about 6,000 years. This is followed by the Millennium, which is about 1,000 years. But the physicist didn't want to acknowledge the streamlined way this agrees with the timeframe for creation: one week, which is approximately 7,000 of our years. This is because the physicist deals with a science that denies a young earth.

When I pointed out evolution is blown out of the water by the Lord's statement that he created everything after its own kind, the physicist said there was room for healthy debate, and he didn't mind a little philosophical discussion.

What's there to discuss? You either believe the Lord, or you don't.
