from a really good Christian message board:
"I believe that God created the earth in 6 literal days.
What the Bible says is absolute truth.
God is God. He can do anything He wants, when He wants, and take however long He wants doing it.
Just because it doesn't even begin to make sense in our puny human minds doesn't mean that it must be inaccurate. Our understanding of the ways of this universe is small and ridiculously pathetic.
We'll never fully understand God's way of working, and I don't think we're meant to."
