A VERY Intelligent quote of the day

“I have serious problems with fundamentalist Christians and their creationist theories. Although I believe that scripture is divinely inspired and infallible, I have a hard time going along with the belief that the whole creation process occurred in six twenty-four hour days. My skepticism is due, in part, to the fact that the Bible says that the sun wasn’t created until the fourth day of creation (Genesis 1:16-19). I have a hard time figuring how twenty-four hour days could have been measured before that.”

One thought on “A VERY Intelligent quote of the day

  1. As it happens, an Adventist preacher addressed that fourth day in a radio sermon I heard last Sabbath.

    He said many trees and plants (day 3) could not have survived long without the sun (day 4).

    And God must have figured out how to figure the first THREE days of creation without a sun. “There was light,” Gen. 1:3 says. What kind of light? Could it perhaps have been “the light of the world”?
