DAY = ?

 

There is a high probability that any discrepancy between Godís Word and Godís Creation is a human error.

 

All of Godís creations were created in 6 days. This includes the Heavens and the Earth. Yet when we look at the geological evidence on Earth it appears to be older when measured in human years. Why? I can take you into our Texas hill country and the geological evidence is abundant. This evidence indicates our Earth is very old.

 

There appears to be a discrepancy and much conflict resulting between creationism and evolution. I personally do not see any conflict. I also do not find any reason conflict should exist unless people are happy when they are having conflict. This 6 day issue is a good place for conflict if conflict must exist because it will do no harm. Unfortunately, there are better areas to focus on the gift God has to offer mankind.

 

You and I refer to a day as 24 hours. A day is the time it takes the Earth to rotate on its axis one revolution. So what was a day to God before the Earth existed? Please understand that before God created the heavens and the Earth, the Earth did not exist. Was a day the, soon-to-be, rotation of the Earth? Was it the rotation of our solar system? Maybe it was the rotation of our Galaxy. We really do not know what the length of a day was to God. How could we possibly know? The concept of time is complex and God knew this. However, he did provide us a clue which we would eventually begin to figure out. Read the next two verses from the Bible.

 

Psalms 90:4  For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

 

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.

 

It took many years of study before human beings eventually discovered that time is variable. That is right. It is VARIABLE. Einstein discovered the formula E = MC2. Other related aspects of his Theory of Relativity say that the speed of light is constant in outer space. He also clearly proved that TIME is variable. We have tested his theory with our own spacecraft and it has been proven to be exactly what Einstein predicted. The variation of time is exactly what the Bible tells us. It is variable. If you were to travel at 90% of the speed of light, time would be going about 10 times slower for you than a person who is not moving. At the beginning of the Big Bang theory matter was moving extremely close to the speed of light so time was very close to standing still. One day might have been billions of years long.

 

I know aspects of physics are difficult for people to understand if you do not study it on a regular basis. It took our bests scientists thousands of years to finally discover what the Bible already told us. Godís creation was created in 6 days according to God but it would be about 5 billion years to mortal human beings. So essentially the creation theory and evolution are both correct. One theory completely agrees with the other if you put those theories in the perspective of what is possible with God or what is possible with scientific principles.

 

I would like to present an aspect of science that exists in the scientific community. Any theory or hypothesis must be totally documented and open to scrutiny for everyone. Not only must they present the theory but they must also totally document the method by which they derived that theory. They must include all evidence and every test used in making the determination. Then everyone else in the world is totally free to take that evidence and punch holes in it. The evidence either holds up to scientific scrutiny or it fails. Often times a theory is speculative but the scientists often are aware of the probability of error. This is also published and can be adjusted with new information. I do not see the scientific community trying to compete with religion in a negative way. Even Charles Darwin never competed with religion. Charles Darwin was trained in the ministry. He never once did anything with ill intentions toward the church. His observations of the Earth were nothing more than documenting exactly what he saw. His theory of evolution was based on his personal observation of the Earth. If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC you will see the most abundant evidence of what our Earth has to offer. You can visibly observe the wonder of Godís creation in more detail.

 

You can ask any nuclear physicist or any person with a degree in physics and they will all tell you time is variable. It is a fact that we have been able to absolutely prove long after God told us. Anyone who finds conflict between creationism and evolution is finding conflict between Godís Word and Godís Creation. So we have people trying to resolve conflict in an area where conflict never existed.  Iím sure we can all think of areas to help make this a better world to live in by following the examples Jesus set for us. For reference on the variable time see E=MC2.

 

My mathematical references here are used as an example. The relationship between speed and time are not linear in reality. If you have a problem with my interpretation then take it up with God.
