I am sorry, David, to have offended, but I was simply giving one possible
interpretation of the evidence as I saw it. It is my understanding that
the whole purpose of newsgroups like these was to discuss theories and
exchange ideas.

In the future, if you wish to dicuss my views on the interpretation of
scipture, please e-mail me directly. I would be more than happy to engage
you in a lively discussion of the more mysterious portions of the written
works of the ancient prophets. (I find the Revelation of John to be most

As it is, I stand by my statements. Particularly, that as it seems to be
stated in Genesis, Moses saw that God performed a certain amount of labor,
or perhaps a type of labor. Then, having finished that, God paused and
moved on to something else. For lack of a better way of explaining this,
Moses interpreted these breaks as "days". So, in essense, what we read as
days, was merely seven different work periods, not literal days.

And as you light-heartedly joked, I do believe that I was there during the
creation of the Earth, in some form or another, but as that clearly falls
in the realm of theology, and not archaeology, discussing that aspect has
no place here.

Again, I would enjoy discussing this on a more personal level, but please
do not waste our time flaming me in public.
