Refuting a Nonsensical Allegation on the Sensibly Scientific Filled Scripture


This is a reply to the allegation no. 4 posted on: http://www.godismaginary.com

Again, these haughty blatant liars are misleading people in assuming that God created the universe in six days, 6000 years ago, allegedly, according to the Bible. They call it anti-scientific nonsense! Their ignorance of the scriptures and its language is obviously displayed in their presumption that the earth was created 6000 years ago. There are enough scientific evidences that will readily prove to an understanding mind that the earth has existed billions of years ago. The presence of diamond on earth and other precious stones and metals like gold and silver proves the antiquity of the earth.

Most diamonds that we see today were formed millions (if not billions) of years ago. Powerful magma eruptions brought the diamonds to the surface, creating kimberlite pipes. (http://science.howstuffworks.com/diamond.htm)

Carbon Chemistry & Diamond Crystal Structure

The word ‘diamond’ derives from Greek adamao, meaning ‘I tame’ or ‘I subdue’ or the related word adamas, which means ‘hardest steel’ or ‘hardest substance’. Everyone knows diamonds are hard and beautiful, but did you know a diamond could be the oldest material you might own? While the rock in which diamonds are found may be 50 to 1,600 million years old, the diamonds themselves are approximately 3.3 billion years old. This discrepancy is because the volcanic magma that solidifies into rock where diamonds are found did not create them, but only transported the diamonds from the Earth’s mantle to the surface. Diamonds also may be formed under the high pressures and temperatures at the site of meteorite impacts. The diamonds formed during an impact may be relatively ‘young’, but some meteorites contain star dust, debris from the death of a star, which may include diamond crystals. One such meteorite is known to contain tiny diamonds over 5 billion years old. These diamonds are older than our solar system!

I understand and can comprehend words in at least four major languages and four native dialects of my country of origin. Of course, I want to learn more, but when I have read the Bible, when I was 17 years of age, I have loved it and have learned its language. I have nothing to boast for, for I am nothing; but my God, whom these people say IMAGINARY, is greater than I can describe.

THE LANGUAGE OF THE BIBLE

God was frank enough to say that His thinking is far more superior to our thinking.

(Isaiah 55:8-9) “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

As it is very hard for an ordinary person to learn and comprehend the language of a lawyer in the courtroom, it will be very hard also for an ordinary mind as lowly as the earth to comprehend the language of the HIGHEST. A wise reader of the Bible must read it with caution and carefulness, especially, the words which God uttered from His very mouth. There are words in the Bible that were said by humans (believing and non-believing i.e. Psalms 53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good”), by angels, by demons, and the devil. Sorting all these requires patience and understanding, otherwise, you will be counted as one of those whom the apostle Peter said: perverting or wrestling the word of God.

(2 Peter 3:16-17) “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.”

This is surely what is being done by these imaginary people!

Nowhere in the Scriptures can you find a verse that the universe or the earth was created only 6000 years ago. I challenge these liars. Come out with a verse that proves your point, and I guarantee you there is none! Maybe these people were mislead by the belief of the Seventh Day Adventist Church and the Jehovah’s Witnesses that creation took place only 6000 years ago. After all, they do not believe in God, so their presumption that the universe and the earth was created only 6000 years ago must have been picked up by them from the ‘trash’ doctrines of these sects.

Witnesses believe that Adam was created in 4026 B.C. and that human beings have been allotted 6000 years of existence until Armageddon and the beginning of the millennium. This figure is based on a “creative week” in which each of six days is equal to 1,000 years, with the Sabbath or seventh day being the beginning of the millennium. Simple arithmetic gives 1975 as the year Armageddon would arrive. Franz explained that Armageddon would actually come 6000 years after Eve’s creation. But when 1975 came and went, the Witnesses had to “adjust” their chronology to cover up a failed prediction. They accomplished this by maintaining that no one knew exactly how long after Adam’s creation Eve came on the scene. Franz said that it was months-even years. Hence he was able to “stretch” the 1975 date…

(http://www.catholic.com/library/History_of_the_Jehovah_Witnesesses.asp)

Here is a vast span of time — according to Scripture chronology, about 6,000 years since creation — and the people still have not been returned to the garden of Eden…( ref. SEVENT DAY ADVENTIST BELIEVE pp 76-77)

If they will deny that they have picked this up from the garbage can, they must have used their own miscalculations to presume that the world or the universe was created only 6000 years ago.

THE TRUTH

One must notice in the account of creation in Genesis, the mention of the word ‘day’ (yome in Hebrew: From an unused root meaning to be hot; a day (as the warm hours), whether literally (from sunrise to sunset, or from one sunset to the next), or figuratively (a space of time defined by an associated term), (often used adverbially): – age, + always, + chronicles, continually (-ance), daily, ([birth-], each, to) day, (now a, two) days (agone), + elder, X end, + evening, + (for) ever (-lasting, -more), X full, life, as (so) long as (. . . live), (even) now, + old, + outlived, + perpetually, presently, + remaineth, X required, season, X since, space, then, (process of) time, + as at other times, + in trouble, weather, (as) when, (a, the, within a) while (that), X whole (+ age), (full) year (-ly), + younger.)

The word ‘yome’ in Hebrew may mean a literal day as we know it on earth, or an age.

(Genesis 1:3-5) “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”

The first day being mentioned here is not an earth day which is literally a 24 hour day! Why? Because earth days came only on the fourth day of creation!

(Genesis 1:14-19) “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.”

We must notice in the preceding verses the mention of ‘two great lights’: one, to rule the day; and the other to rule the night. The verse speaks of the sun and the moon. They are two great lights relative to the earth, because if we are to look beyond our solar system, the light of our sun, our star, is not so great compared to LBV 1806-20, which could be 40 million times brighter than our sun; and is 45,000 light-years away.

An intelligent reader of the Bible, a real Christian, is aware that the account of creation in Genesis does not tell us only of the creation of the earth, but the entire universe. Definitely, the first day mentioned in verse 3 is not an earth day. An elementary student of astronomy knows that even in our solar system, there are different days. A day in Venus is made up of 243 earth days! (http://www.promotega.org/ksu00021/planet.htm) And there are more galaxies and, maybe, solar systems in the entire universe much much more than we can imagine. For this reason, it is foolish to conclude that the entire creation took only six earth days and that it happened only 6000 years ago. As mentioned earlier, the term ‘day’ used in Hebrew may mean an age or a vast span of time. In fact, the six days of creation were summed up to a ‘day’.

(Genesis 2:4) “These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens…” (Emphasis mine)

God is infinite. A day is like a thousand years to Him; and a thousand years, a day. There is not much difference between a thousand years and a day for Him.

(2 Peter 3:8) “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

The Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Seventh Day Adventists are wrong in interpreting that one day with the Lord is a thousand years for man. It is not in the verse! What the verse says is: that a thousand years and a day are just the same with the Lord. So, it is wrong to conclude that the entire process of creation happened within 6 earth days, or 6000 years only 6000 years ago.

Who told these imaginary people that the Bible contains anti-scientific nonsense? It is not the Bible that speaks of nonsense, but YOU! The Bible is full of scientific informations even before they were discovered by man. 2,700 years ago, when the book of prophet Isaiah was written, we know that the earth was spherical in shape — or round.

(Isaiah 40:22) “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in…”

That it is hanging on nothing….

(Job 26:7) “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.”

That it has exact measurement!

(Job 38:4-5) “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

And many more scientific informations.

  1. In my opinion, this person who tries to persuade “intelligent, college graduates” is a person who is very pitiful. A true Christian doesn’t need to be a college grad nor be intelligent according to man’s wisdom to be an “educated Christian”. There are deep things of God which are only understood by those “educated Christians” who have the mind of Christ. They are the children of the God the Father, whom He acknowledges as sons and daughters. To them, the Lord Almighty reveals His words, not to people like the person who did the video “god is imaginary”.

    God sends messengers. Take Peter and John who were unlearned and ignorant men, they were apostles of Christ. In our times, take Bro. Eli Soriano for example. He didn’t finish high school, but has proven that God’s words are quick and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword. These are men of Christ who are “educated Christians”… better yet, that person who did the aforementioned video should read “THE BEST EDUCATION EVER…” written by Bro. Eli.

    How lucky Filipinos are, for in the Philippines, God has allowed a man of principles and faith to be born, to be able to give himself for a worthy cause of disseminating His words to all men. Thank God for a Bro. Eli.

  2. Who ever is that man, who allegedly stating that God is imaginary,(and I dont even know if he is a human being ) I should say he is such a fool, and totally ignorant of the scriptures in the bible. While I was watching his video, my blood pressure went up, caused by those crazy, foolish things he is talking about, I can’t take all those lies and non-sense,and foolish ideas. How unlucky those people who will believe and be amazed to this foolish man. Bro. Eli,thanks be to our God, that He send you to us, to answer those foolish statements,,that will mislead a lot of people.We know you are there to help people realize the truth,wisdom and righteousness of God. Though we know these things will sure to happen and is happening now,in this perilous times, that there will be false prophets, we know you are always ready to extend your help, to do everything you can to stop them liars in misleading innocent people. May God help you fulfill the purpose of your heart. God bless you and your loved ones.

  3. “Amen”
    it’s very nice to have bro eli in our time, explaining to us FACTS from the bible…
    TO GOD BE THE GLORY…

  4. hoo, when i was viewing the video of those idiot people: I admit if i were the man who will going to answer those questions, I might probably get crazy. Thanks God there’s such a man with a great knowldege of Gods mysteries and save me from doubting and if theres anymore continuation I realy dont care i hve seen so much evidences and im very satisfied. Il Dio è Il più grande di tutti noi! A lui sia la gloria fin alla fine!

  5. As expected, Bro. Eli, again was able to show how ignorant these detractors are with regards to the Holy Scriptures. They claim that God is imaginary therefore not believing in His Words. But the problem is, they really don’t understand the Words of God because they don’t believe in Him and don’t spend time STUDYING with LOGICAL minds. Also, getting TRASH from groups CLAIMING to be Christians is, I think, one of their GREATEST MISTAKES.

    Now, try to prove all your CRAP in front of a TRUE CHRISTIAN sent by the TRUE GOD — Brother ELISEO SORIANO!!

  6. Please forgive my ignorance toward your faith but i’ve often wondered how christians reconcile themselves toward living
    within capitalist countries. Corporations have at there centre an entity that is presided over by a human board but the entity itself has only one aim and that is greed for greeds sake. We are plugged into this system if we are aware of it or not so how do christians reconcile themselves to this. Thanks

  7. That crap could have been enough to cheat innocent people to turn away from believing The One who still allows that idiotic person to breath and take a glance what have happened to the garbage he posted. It has just turned IMAGINARY, a wide open publication of foolishness and ignorance! (though he might have thought he’s so smart..)

    Well, why won’t he come out and lets find out how far he could go.

    What have he got? a teaspoonful of stupidity?

  8. Poor man you might never know what is your purpose of living even if you have all the riches in the world, after your last breath all would benefit are the worms that would eat your flesh till you rot! How pitiful ! Have something to think about that would make you really happy because i could sense that you are not… Believe in God now! or someday will come that no matter how hard you will try to call on God, He will never hear you!

    THANK’S BE TO GOD for the Filipinos are blessed to have sensible preacher !

    BRO ELI we love and miss you very much!

  9. “The first day being mentioned here is not an earth day which is literally a 24 hour day! Why? Because earth days came only on the fourth day of creation!”

    — such a great point!

  10. “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t serve both God and Mammon” Matthew 6:24

  11. To karl,

    If i may, I’d like to give you something to ponder as to your question, ” how do christians reconcile themselves toward living within capitalist countries?”. By the way, what do you mean exactly when you said ‘reconcile’?

    We may be plugged into this kind of system, and I can’t blame you, for we are in this world, where how those things that you mentioned work. But if we be like the christians in the bible, Paul wrote this:

    Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    So if they are doing that, then we should not. Let us not be conformed to them.

    On the other hand, it is normal for corporations to be build for profit. That is how business is supposed to be. Otherwise, they should have created a foundation or a non-profit organization, designed to provide humanitary aid rather than earning money.

    But then again, these are things of the world. And we should not attach ourselves to them too much to a point where we detach ourselves from God.

    As a Christian, you will realize how small we are and how great the God who created the whole UNIVERSE and all the things therein is.

    Continue with the fight against false beliefs and people who propagate darkness!

  13. Well,what can we,people who Believed in “The Bible”,expect from perverters? None of the wicked,perverts, shall understand! And that’s Final! Sorry, ABSOLUTE,EXACT,ACCURATE,if you may add. The same thing is true,when it comes to training;
    “Train up a child in the way they should go and when he is old,he will not depart from it.”
    Psalms 22:6
    Unfortunately,these are people who are exposed to the present “information age” and willingly,with eagerness,indulged in the “most” absurd lies of all time since their father began mutilating the flesh!
    Is the kind of training,from chilhood, are strictly perfecting “all” LIES?
    Get a grip! Be reasonable!

  14. This bible detractors are just a waste of time, if they don’t want to believe with the existence of an Almighty God, then they must stop using the bible as basis, after all they are just fooling them selves as they contradict their own basis and claims…

  15. jet
    Thank you for taking the time to reply in a non judgemental fashion. I am not an atheist but i have questions
    born out of a personal experience of jesus but i fear i am in the wrong place to ask those questions. There is just to much self love, pride and hubris on display from some people and it is not my place to detract from there belief in other mens words. In my experience the bible in parts is in absolute contradiction to the spirit of christ that i experienced and it was this that i meant by reconcile. Thanks for trying to explain.

  16. Seventh-day Adventists do believe in God. They do believe in Jesus Christ. They do believe in God’s great plan for the salvation of humankind. They do believe in the Bible record of earth’s creation.

  17. To Karl,

    If you really questions about the bible, I admonish you to ask Bro. Eli. Just click on the tab above – ASK BRO. ELI. He will answer you biblically. It has been an experience of mine.

    But, let me, in my little ways, give you an idea. Definitely, God’s words in the bible do not contradict each other. You see, my friend, the bible contains not only the words of God in there. It also contains the words of men, angels, even satan,… So for you to be guided accordingly when reading the bible, you should first determined the speakers or writers or owners of those words.

    For example:

    1. God’s words

    Psalms 33:4  For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

    Proverbs 30:5  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

    Psalms 119:160  ¶Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

    Proverbs 8:8  All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
    9  They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

    2. satan’s words

    John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    See the difference? I hope I am of help. Continue searching for the truth, my friend.

    1 John 4:1  ¶Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    ASK BRO. ELI.

  18. the world is full of ridiculous people. i can’t imagine how heavy is Bro Eli’s burden in answering all these nonsense allegations. i pray to God for more power to Bro Eli. Because indeed, THE WORLD NEEDS BRO. ELI

  19. your so lame to ask that ten “rusty” questions of yours. you barely understand anything. nonsense.

    Thank God for bro eli.

  20. This person is professing that he thinks critically, more intelligent and understands more than any other professionals. But based on the biblical and scientific facts presented by Bro Eli he isn’t think critically nor an intelligent person because he don’t really understand what he is saying.

    Presenting all negatives and uncomfortable truths is unfair manner of disproving the existence or the presence of God.
    if that would be the case, looking at the positive side of the truth would mean God exists. Doesn’t it? How could you say that God is imaginary?

    Many people believe that the Earth was created in six days.
    Granting for the seek of argument, if this person believes this idea, logic follows that God is not imaginary because the presence of the creator is the presence of His creations.

    Thanks be God for sending Bro Eli to shower His words of truth in the Bible for us to understand His words.

  21. any unanswered question about being and existence must not be a logical “scapegoat” for sweeping ideologies as those UNINTELLIGENT atheist have for they know not what is reality AS A WHOLE. atheist MUST agree with me that there are VALID questions that their “scholarly science” CANNOT answer among which are: 1. what is the reason of our existence and why do we came into being? 2. if the universe came into existence as a result of an UNPLANNED and RANDOM accident, why do we human beings capable of knowing that we exist and why does earth’s ecology has its ORGANIZED balance that is capable of SYNERGISTIC ORGANIC LIFE? why so much ORDER?. these are just two of many VALID questions that i doubt if those atheist are capable of answering sensibly. the atheist ideology for me is a SWEEPING, SUPERFICIAL, ILLOGICAL, and VERY PRESUMPTUOUS. their science tells us that there is a cause for everything yet they are still silent about what really causes life and what is the reason for the universe’s existence.

  22. “……Glory to the GOD of Christians!”

    ” Woe unto those natural brute beasts!”
    …..made to be taken and destroyed,speak evil of the things that they understand not;and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;” ( 2peter2:12)

  23. I’m a person who frequently seeks scientific explanations of things. In fact, currently I am in the field of Computer Science and IT. I have done a lot of projects on both aspects. I am currently the Head of the IT Department of a well-known Food Company.

    Having said this, I still I cannot challenge what Bro Eli is teaching eventhough he’s not even a high school graduate as they say. The only thing that makes sense here is that, in my opinion, he was sent by GOD. Even the best of all scientists cannot match a person sent by GOD.

    To be a scientist is to believe in GOD.

  24. To A Friend_Christian: Talagang masuwerte tayo, pare!
    To christie g.r.: Mate, he’s no human, he’s…a…an IMAGINARY FRIEND from Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends (or Fiends, I hope not…So GOD help them!).
    To dionie clemente: Not teaspoonful of stupidity, dude. Instead, he drank a powerplant-ful of folly-flavored stupidity from SATAN’s disgusting vomit!
    To TJ: Are you Jesus A. Tanchuco III? My old friend back in the Philippines said that you’re good at academic subjects and you’re his idol. You nickname is TJ. Tell me if I’m wrong. I will accept it.

  25. I came into this blog rather late, butas other say; better late than never. What a video, and what beliefs these people herbert ford, karl and the video makers have. The admonitions of Bro Eli and Bro Daniel regarding LOVING THE ENEMY comes in hand. For a moment there was hatred in my heart, but thanks to the non-stop preaching of Bro Eli and Bro Daniel, I just pray for these kind of people, with the faith and hope that in GOD’s time, with their interaction with Bro Eli, they also will realize the TRUTH OF THE WORDS OF GOD as logically and scientifically revealed by Bro Eli. I wish they will go on listening to Bro Eli rather that form their own beliefs based on the perverted teachings of the fake churches and their business -minded leaders out to only make personal propits and gains from religion as has been prophesied. The scientific mind of these scientist are actually just like ‘DROP OF WATER IN AN OCEAN, very very much inferior compared to the scientific and biblical mind given by GOD to Bro Eli who has put his life and personal needs ‘on the line’ just to be able to continue with the very big responsibility and duty to led the CHURCH OF GOD International, and to reveal the TRUTH and the WORDS of GOD under a very limited time, space and financial resources, to as many people as possible. Please go on Bro Eli, Bro Daniel. GLORY TO GOD THE MOST HOLY.

  26. God is not under a time element or a time zone. God is above all.

    And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

    The Acts 1:7

  27. God rules i believe in god, there are 3 reasons why i do:

    I Like God.
    I Need God for Different Things (Not Jealous I Just Use It for IMportant Or something and give god a break for the rest of the day after 1 wish or prayer)
    We All Die IN 2012 So I Dont Want It To Happen So I Believe IN God!

    BELIEVE SOMETHING AND IT WILL LIKE YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING, BELIEVE IN GOD!

  28. This article clearly explains that it is not logical or intelligent to believe that God created the universe 6000 years ago as what the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the

    Seventh-day Adventists believed. These group of believers have been misleading people for over a century now. It doesn’t make sense, after all, physical

    evidences show that there were creations on this earth (e.g. like diamonds, gold and silver) that proves that the universe already existed billions of years ago.

    With these things present, it is much easier for us to perceive if we are being persuaded by preachers in our time. And because of this, we must not listen to

    these kind of preachers, as stated in

    Pro. 19:27 “Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.”

    …who are just deluding us and wanted to make profit because of this, like what Apostle Paul mentioned in

    2 Cor. 2:17 “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”

    Finally, we can always trust the Bible which provides us accurate information, long before science discovered these creations.

  29. God is powerful and merciful. This man on this youtube saying that God is only a delusion or nonsense well he is totally wrong, and nescient about the BIBLE… he never understand of what he is SAYING…bec his mind is blinded on this earth.

  30. I think that a research related to space is very important to creating new concepts and instructions regarding the space discoveries. If we consider the began of the universe, it can be understand that universe stated with an incident called” BIG BANG “.

  31. From the Institute for Creation website itself:

    “The Hebrew word yom is used more than 2000 times in the Old Testament. A cursory examination reveals that in over 1900 cases (95%) the word is clearly used of a 24-hour day, or of the daylight portion of a normal day. Many of the other 5% refer to expressions such as “the day of the Lord” (Joel 2:1) which may not be exceptions at all, since the second coming of Christ will occur on one particular day (1 Cor. 15:51-52), even though His reign extends over a longer period of time.1 Therefore, even without a context, an unbiased translator would normally understand the idea of “24-hour period” for the word yom.

    (4) The demands of context.

    Words generally do not hang in space and in isolation from other words. When they appear in writing, they are always surrounded by other words which serve as modifiers and/or clarifiers. Let us take the word ship used as an illustration in the last point. It is only necessary to add two words to not only differentiate between the noun and the verb forms, but to clarify which of the uses is intended within that form. For example: “The ship flew.” The definite article identifies the form as a noun; the verb identifies the secondary usage of the word as an airplane rather than a boat.

    We need not belabor the point by multiplying examples here. If I write: “I spaded the garden on my day off,” it is clear from the surrounding words that this activity is confined to one particular day. So it is in Genesis 1: all the surrounding words convey, to the unbiased reader, the idea that each activity is confined to one of the particular 24-hour days of this creation week.

    (5) The numerical qualifier demands a 24-hour day.

    The word “day” appears over 200 times in the Old Testament with numbers (i.e., first day, second day, etc.). In every single case, without exception, it refers to a 24-hour day. Each of the six days of the creation week is so qualified and therefore the consistency of Old Testament usage requires a 24-hour day in Genesis 1 as well.

    (6) The terms “evening and morning” require a 24-hour day.

    The words evening (52 times) and morning (220 times) always refer to normal days where they are used elsewhere in the Old Testament. The Jewish day began in the evening (sunset) and ended with the start of the evening the following day. Thus it is appropriate that the sequence is evening-morning (of a normal day) rather than morning-evening (= start and finish). The literal Hebrew is even more pronounced: “There was evening and there was morning, day one. . . . There was evening and there was morning, day two,” etc.

    (7) The words “day” and “night” are part of a normal 24-hour day.

    In Genesis 1:5, 14-18, the words day and night are used nine times in such a manner that they can refer only to the light and dark periods of a normal, 24-hour day.”

    As for the absolutely ridiculous claim that the first “days” couldn’t have been 24 hour days because the sun wasn’t around yet… Well, god would be a poor sap indeed if he couldn’t tell 24 hours without the sun.

    This is that stupid old trick again- the whole look-at-the-Bible-everything-is-true thing, traditionally followed by the old “well, that bit is supposed to be metaphorical…”. A rational examination of the use of the word day in the Bible shows that it should be translated as a regular, 24 hour day. And, of course, that it’s factually incorrect…
