Yes, teach all THREE ideas...if honesty is the policy.
"Day" in Hebrew means ANY duration of time. The Christians know this. Peter said a YOM is a 1000 years to the lord.
YOM = DAY = Era of millions of years
Teach this interpretation of Genesis and the Fundamentalists, and the scienctific. Let the truth be in the mind of the children. Equal handedness is HONESTY:
Gen. 1:1 In the beginning God, (The Universal Power) created the heaven and the earth.
Gen. 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God, (the Natural Laws) moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen. 1:5 And God, (The Universal Power), called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first YOM,( the Azoic Era). (1)
Gen. 1:8 And God, (The Universal Power) called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second YOM, (the Archeozoic Era). (2)
Gen. 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third YOM, (the Proterozoic Era). (3)
Gen 1:14 God, (The Universal Power ), said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and for (24 hour) days, and (365 day) years: Gen. 1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth YOM, (the Paleozoic Era). (4)
Gen. 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth YOM, (the Mesozoic Era). (5)
Gen. 1:31 And God, (the Universal Power), saw every thing that it was good and that was the evening and the morning of the sixth YOm, (the Cenozoic Era). (6)
Gen. 2:3 And God, (the Universal Power), blessed this present YOM, (7) and God, (the Universal Force), rested, (no more evidence of evolution apparent)....
see what I'm saying?
