Hi Pastor Murray- I'm trying to understand your "dreaming" application to Genesis. I see lots of generalities from you, but really nothing specific. Just to narrow it down, and to be blunt, and to the point, let me focus on just one issue/question.

At the last ASA conference, Ted Davis gave a presentation regarding how to teach the different views on origins... interpreting Genesis. There is the YEC, OEC, TE, ID, etc. views. From what I gather, you are saying there is a new and unique way to interpret Genesis that has never been before considered, called "Aboriginal Dreaming." Please answer this one specific question: "How does "dreaming" interpret 'day' in the Genesis account of creation in Gen. ch. 1: Day is 24 hr, day-age, figurative, or other?"

Please give a succinct answer in 1 or 2 paragraphs (5 to 10 sentences). Please no essay-length response or sermon.

I'm just trying to understand your point about the application of "dreaming" to the interpretation of Genesis.
