You misunderstood me or I implied something I didn't mean. A guy I met on, whose name I can't remember, pointed out to me that the
fulfillment didn't have to be instantaneous, and that was a great relief to
me. It allowed the possibility that each of God's "Let there be..." that
is attributed to a specific creation day could have been on a specific 24
hour day, while the development of nature proceeded according to what we
conclude from the geological record.
