    Here is an interpretation of Genesis 1:1 that I can partly accept. It indicates that all that was necessary for the forming of the the heavens and the earth was created during an unspecified duration of time until day one began.

    For at the start of day one the earth was still a formless collection of matter in which God formed into seas and dry land and then he formed light. So the idea here is that all the material that everything is made of was created at the beginning before God started counting the days.

    This view does not really change the fact that the Earth, as we know it has only been around for a little over 6,000 years, because as was pointed out in the video, Genesis 2 says, "Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made."

    God is the one that told Moses to start counting days from the evening at sunset. I believe one of the reasons for this was so it would be clear that God was referring to literal days and not long periods of time in the creation account.

    HalleluYah !!! Praise the Lord!

    Well bully for you. Why did your god need to think in terms of days anyway since it started the day thing before the Earth was created? If your god is infinite, and counted in terms of days, say in one billion years, that would be 365 billion days. A bit of an unwieldly way to count time. Also an infinite god would know what happens on day one of the universe and day last so would not need to keep track of time so the whole thing is BS.

    Thanks man. I was unsure of where to start unravelling this monster of an op 😉


    God rested because of all his hard work, hahahahahahaha!!!

    I believe this idea has been unravelled a few times before, often with humorous results

    God created time for us. I have said this before. I guess your head was up your arse then. Now, before you put it back, give me some references.

    You are too much of a numbnuts to understand anything. You don't even understand your Buddhism, so how can you understand the things of God?

    That's interesting. It sounds like something I might say. 🙂

    I forget who or where, but it was a few weeks ago that someone pointed out (not for the first time) that why would God need to rest? "He" is all powerful, I assume in the spirit world as well. Hmmmm


    Do you really think that a non-physical entity needs to rest?

    Everything you attribute to G$od is just the projection of your own physicality onto a suposed being who is the alpha and omega and thus unaware of time as we know it, etc.
    God is not a man, in fact there is nothing in the whole universe you could call "God", not even god. Hihi ->

    Resting for God means that he did not do any work during that last 24 hour period of the creation week. However, we do need to rest from our physical work. So God established the 7th day Sabbath as a memorial to remember that all his creation was completed in a six day period and purposely ended it by doing no work on the 7th day. This makes it clear that God wanted us to understand that He made everything in six literal days for we are told to rest on the 7th day like God did.
