Do I now believe the earth was not created in six literal days? Why shouldn't I? I've kept a small summary of the logic used to defend the counter-claim, and here it is. Whales have a gene in them that we know could produce the ability to grow the ability to develop the ability to sense, therefore whales came from deer and God didn't create the world in six days. Genesis doesn't really say the heavens and earth were created in six days. Well, it says it but not really, the real translation is that it took millions/billions of years and creation is still happening. Therefore evolution is correct. Ice cores are like radiometric dating. While it's possible for disastrous events to cause what we see in them, I don't think wind would have bothered to really do all that, therefore God didn't create the earth in six days. Chimpanzees and humans have a common ancestor. We know this to be true because if they don't then evolution isn't accurate. Therefore, God didn't create the earth in six days. Scientists who don't say the earth is billions of years old are irresponsible. They should agree with the majority. They don't, so they are wrong. Therefore we must conclude that God did not create the earth in six days. In the face of such definitive and well thought out scientific theology, how can I remain a believer in a literal six day creation? Ok, now hopefully that served to lighten up the mood a bit. I do hope that those here who deny 6d creation will take a few minutes and simply reflect on whether or not it might be worthwhile to open or re-open up the thought of it being a possibility.
