Now, that’s an interesting turn for all the science doubting bible thumpers. Especially the neandrathals who think the planet earth is only 6,000 years old. The church accepting the theory of evolution is a REALLY huge deal! But the church accepting the big bang theory might be considered contradictory to the story of creation in the bible. It all comes down to the definition of “one day”.

What God did on which day is well documented, but the Sun and Earth weren’t created on the first day. So how long is a day? It’s more likely that “one day” is a totally relative term. Perhaps “one day” in God’s reality is equivalent to a billion years of the Earth circling Sol.

If you think about it, the story that God created the planet Earth and Humans in just seven days sounds almost a bit “braggy”. Typical guy thing to do, claim you created a whole universe in only 7 days.

I guess we’re not gods then. It takes our game developers months or even years to create the virtual worlds our game playing children enjoy. It’ll be quite a while before one of us creates a whole beautiful universe in 7 days.
