How long were Creation Days?

A great number of scholars say the creation Days, were not hour days, but long periods of years.

We offer some reasons why this is false.

A great number of scholars say the creation Days, were not hour days, but long periods of years.

We offer some reasons why this is false.

  1. The only day which has an evening and morning is a 24-hour day.

  2. The seventh day of this week was a 24-hour day. Moses says so in Ex. 20:10-11; 31:17.If the seventh day were a 24-hour day, then certainly the other six must have been also.

  3. The period lighted by the sun was a 24-hour day Gen. 1:5, 14, 18.

  4. The word used in Gen. 1:5 was a period of light followed by a period of darkness called night. The 24-hour day is the only such period known to man.

  5. In all the Bible, the word “DAY” is never used of an indefinite period of time when connected with a numeral Gen. 8:3; Num. 13:25; Jonah 1:17; Ex. 20:11:

  6. The objection is raised that there could have been no 24-hour day, without the sun, and the sun did not appear until the fourth day. Wrong again the 24-hour day is made by the revolution of the earth upon its axis, this was from the first day.

  7. The days of Gen. 1 were 24-hour days because Gen. 1:14 plainly says that they were the kind of days that made seasons and years.

  8. The fact that the Bible says that Adam lived 930 years in proof that the days of Gen. 1 were 24-hour days: because that is the only kind of days that make years.
