You are so correct. However, the premises that the young earthers maintain are based on a lack of understanding of scripture. If they were to read Bereshit in Hebrew (Genesis), then they would understand how far off the mark they are. For a fact, the sun was not created until the 4th day, so there must have been a different recollection of time for the first 3 days...There is no doubt in my mind that G-d created the world in just the same manner in which he stated. However, the reconking of time might have been a little different than what the young earthers state. They would have you believe that the only translation that is corect is the KJV. However, there have been at least 87—which is correct? Read it in Hebrew, then you will understand.
And the point is what ?
so there must have been a different recollection of time for the first 3 days ...
There was evening and morning ... a first day. ... There was evening and morning ... a second day. There was evening and morning ... a third day. There was evening and morning ... a forth day.
Different recollection of time?
Sounds like the same thing over and over again to me. I see nothing in the text to suggest that the first 3 days were special as far as time goes.
You have grossly misstated our position. The issues is not about the KJV...I personally prefer studying the Hebrew text. The young earth position is in no way tied to the KJV.
BTW - a number of reputable Hebrew scholars hold to interpreting yom as 24 hour days. And that includes non-creationist scholars.
Bottom line - I have read the Hebrew, and I have consulted others who read Hewbrew...and we disagree with you.
I think you've reasoned yourself into a paradox here.
If God can not express time, before that which represents it, is created...then how can you attribute to God, the establishment of the rules of motion, for those things.
