    HERUSHURA ~ If the earth is only 6000 years old How do you explain that Egypt started over 7000 years ago along with the Ubaid culture, the Sumarra culture started over 8000 years ago and the Halaf and the Yarnuckian cultures started over 8400 years ago and last but not least Old Jericho had its beginning over 11,000 years ago. People lived on earth long before 6000 years ago.

    Maybe you need to quit consulting with the stars and stick to the earth when you do exist don't you? arlan

    You use the stars huh? The stars that are billions upon billions of years old? Some stars that aren't even there anymore but we still see because of how long it takes their light to reach us? Those stars? That, somehow, the constellations of these stars tells you that the Earth is only a few thousand years old? And exactly who told you that time started for Earth at the beginning of a certain era? And how do your beliefs account for all the erosion, platial shifts, volcanos, mountain ranges, and fossil records?

    The First day of Creation is the Spring equinox (Sunday)
    The Seventh Day of rest is the Autumn Equinox (Saturday/Sabbath)

    The Six days of creation is a Parralel to the Six months of growing and harvesting, First day God

    First day: God creates light ("Let there be light!") - the first divine command. The light is divided from the darkness, and "day" and "night" are named. This is the Spring Equinox when day and night are equal.



    Second day: God creates a firmament ("Let a firmament be...!") - the second command - to divide the waters above from the waters below. The firmament is named "heavens". Its Raining, the upper water are falling below creating water, the Water that grows the Harvest.



    Third day: God commands the waters below to be gathered together in one place, and dry land to appear (the third command). "Earth" and "sea" are named. God commands the earth to bring forth grass, plants, and fruit-bearing trees (the fourth command). After the Rains the harvest begins to grow


    Fourth day: God creates lights in the firmament to separate light from darkness and to mark days, seasons and years. Two great lights are made, and the stars. The Days are becoming Longer/Night are shorter


    Fifth day: God commands the sea to and birds to fly across the heavens He creates birds and sea creatures, and commands them to be fruitful and multiply.
    Mating Season/ harvest is Multiplying


    Sixth day: God commands the land to bring forth living creatures He makes wild beasts, livestock and reptiles. He then creates Man and Woman in His "image" and "likeness". They are told to "be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it." Humans and animals are given plants to eat. The totality of creation is described by God as "very good."
    Harvest is ready for plowing and eating, livestock feed on the harvest, men and women feed aswell. Human Mating at peak

    Seventh day: God, having completed the heavens and the earth, rests from His work, and blesses and sanctifies the seventh day.
    The Harvest has Finished, The Sun can rest from all the growing, the Land can rest for the next harvest.

    I never understand how people can believe this when the rocks underneath my house are bedrocks from a river and are about 100million years old. Explain that?
    Rocks in the bay not far from where i live are 200 millions years old.

    Genesis never mentions the creation of Rocks, only earth, Rock are not essential for harvest. Earth and Rocks are not the Same, Earth is the Soil, the Soil used for growing the Harvest

    I duno if you've dug about 6-20 feet under the dirt but there's rock down there. If God created this Earth he created the bed rocks your house is sitting on and i'd estimate they're at least 10 million years old. Depends if the soil your house is on was disturbed or is the natural soil that was there before civilisation. Generally speaking though, theres no reasonable evidence to suggest a young earth.

    Carbon Dating can tell you that.

    Also the Ancient Had no knowledge on Planets, nor they knew we lived on one.
    Earth is the Soil, its also one of the 4 ancient Elements. Genesis talks about Earth, they are talking about Land, or a Field. infact "Adam" in hebrew is translated as "Earth", and Eve in hebrew means Living one/life.

    And the story is Eve was created From Adam.

    Life is created from earth meaning Plants are Created from the Earth.

    Clearly Adam and Eve are not humans

    The Sumerians had a God called Enki, that means Lord of Earth(vegatation).
    Saturn was also Lord of Earth/vegatation.

    Fire - Water - Earth - Air

    Genesis 1:2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

    The Land was Formless and Empty - The Fields are Empty from the last harvest.
    Its Night Time, the Sun is in underword.
    Suddenly the Sun rises above the Waters, Sunrise.

    Spirit in hebrew is rauch that means move or wind.

    Genesis 1:1, in the beginning the Sunrises above heavens and begins photosythesis of the Earthly Plants

    Genesis 1:9 - And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear."

    Before the Spring Equinox * March is April

    April is a rainy month, April showers. and water is gathered in one place or a puddle. The Sun is getting hot and the water evaporates leaving the Dry ground for the harvest to grow on.

    11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation"

    So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    male and female he created them.

    Man=earth/plants
    image = Light

    So the Sun's Light created the Earth with his own Light,
    in the Light of the sun he created Plants;
    male and female plants he created them.
