Easy, Danthrax. You quoted the first use of 'day' in Gen 1:5, whereas Richard was apparently speaking of the second use of 'day' in Gen 1:5. Is it not human, somewhat logical, and perhaps even correct to consider " day" as a 24 hour period, as that is the length of a day as we have always known it?

2 Peter 3:8 King James Version (KJV 1769)
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Perhaps one day we will fully understand that concept of time from God's perspective. But until then, in this case I too would have to lean towards the notion that a day is a day as I know. But who's to say that God couldn't fit 1000 year of stuff within it?

So, the verse itself says "And God called the light Day" but you say "And God called the 24 hours Day" ?? How dare you traduce the word of God to promote your opinion?

this verse makes it perfectly clear that the hebrew word yom is 24 hour period of time,in other words a day not aperiod of a thousand years !
