What concerning the dinosaurs? good, by the point this query arises (a in basic terms rhetorical one, after all) we're already engaged in a dialogue that will embarrass even the hardest hooligans. frequently, conversing of Genesis leads us, necessarily, to an irreconcilable department among technological know-how and faith. it appears, one overrides the opposite. If Genesis says seven days, and technology has proved there have been six billion years, all of it shows that whatever is incorrect, evidently… within the Bible. it's tricky for us to claim that the research of technological know-how is incorrect, aside probably from 100 million years up or down. So, following this common sense, we are going to base this research on what technological know-how claims that have been the early days of the sun method and of our planet, the Earth, in keeping with the present findings. good, if the sunlight procedure and the Earth were in lifestyles for greater than six thousand million years because they have been only a cloud of airborne dirt and dust and fuel floating adrift in our attractive galaxy… how did we get to these seven days? certain, i do know, don´t inform me: natural superstition, myths, and historical stories of assorted mythologies. good, I don´t blame you, i used to be of an identical opinion till, interpreting the Bible to my youngest son, i found that anything was once incorrect with the texts of Genesis, or wasn´t? anything within the sacred texts stuck my recognition and that i stopped for a second to examine them and that i proposal: what if the Genesis made ​​sense? What if the narrative have been in keeping with the medical clarification? What if the textual content of Genesis was once the imaginative and prescient of somebody who has obvious the construction of the sun process like in a film? and that i remembered what number discoveries have began with this easy word: What if… ? And convinced, let´s try and process the problem from that point of view, finally… what might we lose? after all, I may still make clear at this element that i feel in God. i think that God created every thing. i'm, as they are saying, a believer. Philosophically I lean extra in the direction of the Hindu-Buddhist aspect, than in the direction of the Jewish-Catholic-Muslim, yet as God is similar in either situations, I see no clash in interpreting the holy books of either religions, and research what God has instructed males, in Mesopotamia in addition to within the Indus Valley. good, let´s see then what God has advised us. bankruptcy three BILLIONS First, let´s contemplate the "never good weighted" seven days. in fact, the seven biblical days must have a few kind of clarification, i presumed, and that i dedicated myself to discover it. first thing that happened to me used to be that if God was once limitless, a God´s day may final one thousand million years, so seven days of God could be six billion years. you'll say, why six billion years? good, since it is presently predicted that from the unique nebula to the current six billion years have handed, and 4 billion 600 million years because the consolidation of the Earth. even though Occident has now not dealt with significant figures -and whilst I say significant figures I suggest figures as huge as billions of years- of their mythologies, it can be fascinating to notice that during India, on the time of writing the Genesis they have been already used to considering numbers of that significance.
