Creationism proves that it doesn't understand the Bible
creation writes:
No. My position is that God is right, and what you believe is right contrary to that do not matter.
Of course it matters that God is right. The question is, "what is God saying to us".
Out of ancient Jewish mythology there is a great message recorded in Genesis. It tells us that God created us as an act love, that He cares for us, and that we have free will with the knowledge of good and evil, that he wants us to choose that which is good and primarily that He has given us the responsibility to be stewards of our world by being the image bearers of His love into it.
creation writes:
I cannot say for certain a year was 360 days in the past here. I can say God uses it, so it probably is how it was, and is how it will be.
You keep trying to have the Bible say something that wasn't intended when it was written and isn't intended now. It draws you and others away from what God is really trying to tell us.
Let science do the job it does very well and learn from it. It tells us how things are and how it got to be that way. Let us use our Christianity to tell us why things are the way they are. When you look at evolutionary theory you should look at it with amazement that God could bring about a process that allowed you and all the other myriad of living creatures to evolve.
Science has given us healthier longer and fuller lives. Why don't you just be grateful to God for what it has accomplished instead of treating it like an enemy.

He has told you, O man, what is good ; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8
