In the beginning ... an invisible, omnipotent, perfect deity; "God", created the earth; the solar system; the universe; everything ... in six days ..." notwithstanding the facts that "day" is a unit of time dependent on the rotation of the not yet fully created earth and its orbit around the not yet created sun while time itself cannot exist independent of the not yet created space time continuum. Yet, the believe in "God" is based upon both faith and logic; the faith that God is omnipotent and perfect, the logic that God is invisible because we can't see him.

You said
"the logic that God is invisible because we can't see him."

Your statement is based on the assumption that just because you can't see God, others can't either. That is not true.

1, what part of "as read on another forum" do you not understand?

2, what you referred to, given the context and the connotation, is religious "reasoning" quoted or paraphrased.

You're welcome.

Man did not write the Bible as he saw things happen

God INSPIRED man to write what happened, and He
obviouly did so in terms man would understand,
so of course man would write ""six days""

you and your kind delve too deep in search of
Biblical contradictions and flaws, tBt

- a statement or proposition that asserts, implies or infers both the truth and falsity of another or itself; logically incongruous.

Contradictions thus, have this annoying characteristic to stick out as a sore thumb - no delving, deep or otherwise, required.

That of which its nature is self-contradictory cannot, and therefore does not, exist.
