Isnt Adam, Abraham, Peleg, and the flood all in B.C.(Before Christ)? Cause A.D. is all the stuff After his Damnation.1-6000 years, creation of the earth.
6-7000 years, God rested/Garden of Eden.
7000-???? years, the Garden of Eden.
App 4000 AD Adam "born".
Between 2400 and 2300 the Flood.
Between 2300 and ???? Peleg lives and the "earth (continents) is divided".
App 2000 AD Abraham.
Between 1400 and 1300 Moses
App 600 AD Babylon conquers Israel and carries them off into captivity.
0 BC/AD Christs Birth (though really they think it was about 6BC).
App 2008 Now.
4000 A.D. would be way in the future considering its 2008 A.D. now.

As someone already said there are some who think they were just another type of human. Ehh... either way it looks like they could talk.
I like how noone clued into miroku's after his damnation explaination for AD... It's actually supposed to be latin. Anno Domino or Dominae depending who you ask... either way it means roughly the same thing and has nothing to do with damnation... I mean a savior being damned would be pretty screwed up even for the catholic relegion and timetable...
on the pro six days side... in the original scripts for the old testament well not actually the real brass plates but the different lits in the original language day has a very separate meaning actually it's a word without english equivalence it's a word the describes a set period of time which is now obsolete. Also to put it in perspective... genesis is a book of Moses meaning that it's him simplifying things to relate it to his followers after god has simplified it to him... so if we replace the word days with stages things become a little more clear and then we don't have to bicker over where to split the head on timeperiods. I mean evencarbon dating is flawed in the respect that according to both, science and the bible creation accured only after earth was a hurtling rock in space that was uninhabitable and was hit by meteors and stuff...
There are people who would argue that neanderthals and dinosaurs disprove the relegious view... this is unacceptable because those forms of life clearly existed before we developed life and were wiped out by some sort of ice age... who's to say that this wasn't a restarting point in the entire history for the earth? that maybe for a while all life was wiped out and that we are not really related to that chain of evolution after all the evolution theories can be little more then people trying to piece together a puzzle without any real idea of what picture the piece is supposed to make and every piece fits together just as well as any other...
However I don't understand why these two views must take a stand against each other. It is to my knowledge that in the past when science and relegion have disagreed on something that the best answer is a merge of the two...
Now I am not trying to convert any one from their beliefes, I am just putting in my two sense worth in what I believe in and what I know. If people have a problem with it well then sorry for having my own opinion.
P.S. I am kind of grumpy this morning.

Well I am a creationist believer.... but I don't believe that the bible description is literal. I mean I know and believe God is all powerful and everything and If he wanted to create the world in 6 days he could. But I believe the creation and the evolution come together. By the way the 1 Day = to 1000 years is in Psalms, and the author is being poetic.
Anyways... I believe that all in the bible cannot be taken literally and yes I believe the Genesis description of the creation is one of the passages that cannot be taken literally timing wise....
Actually sometimes I have wondered about the theories that are out there... what if they are all correct? The bible points that "God said and it happened" but it doesn't say how it happened....
