Hi kofh,

It supports divine knowledge that 3362 year ago, long before anyone could possibly have known for sure, Genesis stated that seven historical durations measure the sequence of cosmic evolution.

I have read Genesis chapter 1 in Hebrew, Greek, and English and I can not for the life of me find your seven historical durations as you present them.

I do find where "in the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth".

This Heaven and Earth existed at the end of the statement in Genesis 1:1.

So where do you find the seven historical durations you are talking about?

God Bless,

Hi kofh,

kofh2u writes:

Check the Hebrew word used for "day" so we agree that this term means any appropriate duration as opposed exclusively to a 24 hour duration.

I am very familiar with what the Hebrew text says. My major was Biblical Hebrew.

I will accept what God says over any of man's interpertation's.

God's definition of a day can be found in Genesis

quote:
Genesis 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.


God called the period of light 'day'.
God called the period of darkness 'night'.
God called the light period ending with evening and the following morning which ended the dark period 'day one'. There is no first in the Hebrew text.

Conclusion:

Day one included a light period and a dark period.

The second day had a morning and an evening followed by the ending of the dark period with the morning of the third day.

kofh writes:

The word could mean an Age or even half a day, depending.

Not according to God unless you had a very long light period followed by a very long dark period.

kofh writes:

Hence if we assume that the 24 hour Earth Day did not exist when the creation story begins, it is fair to infer the duration could be eons long if our context suggsest this to be the case:

You can make all the assumptions your mind desires to make. That does not make your assumption correct.

God defined a day as a light period or a light period and dark period.

kofh writes:

3) We find the "seven historical durations" marked in the rocks by various events which record the History of the Earth.

You find a lot of ages in the rocks as the Earth is very, very, very, very old. How old? I believe it has existed for an infinite eternity in some form.

kofh writes:

But we read in Genesis about the same events, occurring in the same sequence and time frame but referred to as days.

Genesis 1:2 through Genesis 2:3 does not even talk about creation.

Creation takes place in Genesis 1:1 and the history of that light period which ended at Genesis 1:2 is found in Genesis 2:4 and the following verses, through Genesis 4:24.

kofh writes:

Gen. 1:9 And (Father Nature, the first cause), God, said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, (Panthalassa), and let (Pangea/Rodinia), the dry land appear: (composed of the Seven Large Tectonic Plates):

quote:
1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

I don't see any mention of 'Father Nature', or the Seven Large Tectonic Plates. I do see where all the dry land was in one place, call it what ever you want. The plates were there but they were not mentioned.

God Bless,

Day's length
Hi kofh,

kofh writes:

2) But we also can refer to the scripture that tells us that a day is like a thousand years to god.

You could read the scripture also.

quote:
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.

One day as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. Sounds like Peter is saying God is not limited by time as He is not subject to time being and infinite eternal God.

Peter is not saying one day is a thousand years.
Neither is he saying one thousand years is a day.

God Bless,

I like to read the Bible as 100% factually true.

Then why don't you accept what the text says, instead of making up a story that is more outrageous than the BBT.

Hi kofh,

kofh2u writes:

In the desert, before the Torah was written down, they did this so they could use the space on the fingers for a Loci Memory System to remember the Oral Torah and keep the facts straight:

How do you know when the Torah was written down?

Prior to 585 BC the Hebrew alphabet was what is in my profil picture.

This is the alphabet that Moses would have used to write the Torah.

Are you saying Moses did not write the Torah?

God Bless,

I claimed that there was a time before that, around 1362BC I will specify now, when the tradition of the Jews says an Oral Torah existed.

Why was Moses told by God to write in a book some things if he did not write them in a book? Exodus 17:14.

God Bless,
