Talk:Old earth creationism
Why the Biology portal?
Shouldn't this article have a tag for the Creation portal? Why the Biology portal? I saw very little biology-specific content in it; most of it relates to creationism and the creation-vs.-evolution debate.--TemlakosTalk 11:26, 26 November 2007 (EST)

Thoughts on Day-Age Theory
I was just thinking about the controversial verse in 1 Peter 3:8, "One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." In prophecy or other cases, a week is used to refer to 7 years - e.g. Genesis 29:27-28 or Daniel 9:25-27.
But even if one were to consider the days of Genesis to each have been 1,000 years, that still doesn't provide any sort of acceptability for evolutionary theory, which requires MILLIONS OF YEARS. Even if you were to accept 5,000 years for the 3rd-7th days, you're still looking at life having been created less than 20,000 years ago.
In other words, the verse still doesn't allow in any way, shape, or form for the millions or billions of years required by evolutionary theory. I don't understand why people think it makes the Bible compatible with evolutionary theory. --Jzyehoshua 17:47, 27 May 2012 (PDT)
