If "6 days" are thought of in terms of general relativity, than the universe could easily be 15 billion - or 6000 years old; each epoch of the expansion "relative" to its density as the expansion took place.

Time would have passed at a "slower" rate relative to a hypothetical "earthbound" observer.

Note though, this is "classical" thought which doesn't necessarily discount the multiverse concept of M-Theory where there may be an "infinite" number of "universes".

But neither does any of this undermine the role of God, for our place just a little further from the center of this spiral galaxy in a relatively debris free lane where metals are abundant, in a solar system where the outer planets sweep up a lot of the material that could impact us; where we live with a disproportionately sized Moon which stabilizes our planetary axis and fits just over the Sun in solar eclipses which allows us to test relativity theory; that we have plate tectonics which recycles our oceanic surface and gives us the means for the chemicals of life.

Thank God for it all, every day.

I'm a little confused. Are you saying that this hypothetical observer would have aged 6000 years, while the earth beneath his feet would have aged 4.5 billion years?

Plate tectonics which recycle.

Hmm,

Why then are there fossils.

Why then is erosion working faster then new ground showing up on some seaboard.

Plate tectonics is a theory that does not fit the observed.

I don’t see anything in Scripture or in real life to suggest the lengths of time used to measure days in ancient times are any different than today. Did the earth orbit differently? Was its path slower?
