Good point, Hilary. However, I think it's important to keep in mind that the Bible was given to humans on this earth and that it is a record of and story of God's interaction with us. While I don't think it's arrogant in the extreme to assume that we're the only intelligent beings in such a huge creation (it would be more ignorance rather than arrogance), it would seem silly to me that God would be writing from the perspective of a different part of the universe in some other galaxy where some other created beings live, and then to give that Bible to us with no relation or knowledge of the other beings.

If there were other beings in different parts of this universe, I would have to think that they'd have their own Bible and historical account of God's story on their world. And if their 'day' is 6 of our days, then I'd have to imagine that their Bible says that creation was created in 1 'day' and He rested for 1/6th of a day after all that hard work. =D
