Yes, and God actually confirms a 24 hour day, on the first day he created.

Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Why did God establish this on the first day? Because God was setting up the bounderies of time for what the next 6 days would intel as far as time was concerned. So even though yom is a period of time, how much of time per day is clearly defined on that very first day.

In the beginning was a reference to time itself being created. Why? Because the creation of heaven and earth are after the phrase "In the beginning". Because God lives in eternity, to create what does not belong in eternity (physical objects), time is required first. Why is time required first? Anyone that has pondered possibilities of different dimensions knows that there has to be a dividing factor, set in place, that makes one dimension different from the other. A factor that can exist in one, but not the other.

In this case, the dividing factor is time. Why? Because eternity has no time. Because if it did, then age would be a factor which would contridict what living for eternity is. So the first thing that was needed for this dimension for us to live, was the one thing that makes it different from where God lives.

I'm no expert in this area so I'm in no position to debate it, however this site has the old earth interpretation on this...that the evening and morning were referring to the beginning and end of creative periods rather than literal days.

They are welcome to twist what is clearly written. What is misunderstood is that the first day was also a set up for bounderies between our realm and God's. That what the form and void problem was.

The whole OEC thing hinges on the words: "Without form and void", and the words "replenish the earth'. The replenish part has been debunked by AIG. The word replenish existed before any other word was used to describe the word fill. It's meaning was not that of refill, but to just fill.

So the two main things that OEC hinged on was proven to be something else. But they are entitled to keep believing it. it is their choice.

Yep, the plants sat around for millions of years waiting for the sun to come up the next day.
