Now that makes sense Arrianna. Best information I have heard so far for the creationist side or at least a better understanding of what they were talking about at least. I had no clue about that, and I am sure most other people who believe in creationism didn’t know about that either. Once again the fact of misinterpretation rears its head yet again. The fact that "yom" is a multi purpose word that belongs to the definitions of time of work and period. But as you said it was never given the exact length of time in the written work of genesis so to say the length of time or period of work was not written specifically to a 24 hour time period and there for the "yom" or work period given could be much much much longer. But sense it is not given to the exact time and date, wouldn’t looking at carbon dating and other forms of chemical, geological, and radioactive types of time measurement be a good way of looking at god's proverbial time card? I believe that god created the super element as I have mentioned earlier and set this object into motion. Something just hit me. I could be saying this wrong so please correct me on this. It is said that got created Earth and the Heavens in 7 days or a yom version of this work time. Now what if the phrase Earth and Heavens was referring to the universe its self. Not so much of what the universe we know to day but that super element that would become the universe and set that into motion. We could be very well be measuring his creations work which is the universe and not so much his hand but at the same time is his hand while creating evolution and free will but at the same time some how guiding it... My head is starting to hurt because it’s a contradiction and a big one at that but some times you need a contradiction in order for something to work and if god can do anything then he sure as hell can do this. The plot thickens.
