But the current state of the universe doesn't reflect that.Ã‚Â From what we observe of the cosmos there is no way things could have occured they way you say they have.
To how we understand time, you would be right on that issue. But time during creation, without the curse of death is eternal time.
Eternal time = time with no death, and aging (aging is the path to death). Eternal time also has no birth. Nothing is born into eternal time because birth is the begining of a time-line that requires aging, then death. This is why all things in eternal time have to be created. Because when there is no birth (nothing is born), how else are things going to come to be unless they are created?Birth vs creation:
Now since it is understood that nothing can be birthed into eternal time. Now to understand the creation even further. Things being created and not birthed also affect the time-line of age as we know it. This is why everything during the first 6 days of creation is out of the time-line of 6,000 years.
What was created in the 6 days that does not fit in the 6,000 year time-line?
2) The solar system.
3) The universe.
4) The first life of everything created.
Time with no aging process requires a creation to where age is already added. Why? Want to be born an infant and never grow up? This is why God's word refers to things that sound funny because they do not go along with the current time-line, as we would understand. Eternal time for the first 6 days is what makes this sound this way.Example:
Genesis 2:4 These are the generations
of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day
that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
Here we have "generations" being spoke of when how many days have actually past? About 6 or 7 days, correct? So where does generations come from, when that many days have not passed to make them?Notice the verse does not say:
Generations of man, or any other living thing. It says: Generations of the heavens (universe) and of the earth (our planet), when they were created.
So generations of age were a part of the creation when they were created. But the verse even repeats itself in another way for better understanding. Not only does it say when they were created, but: in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
What this means is that because things cannot be birthed into eternal time. On the first day of creation, the earth was created with generations of time already added. Why? When could life ever exist on a earth birthed in eternal time that would never age, and never cool down?
ps 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
How can you lay a foundation of old the same time you lay it, inless age is already added to this foundation?
ps 82:5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.The earth out of course can only mean two things:
1) Out of orbit (direction of course). Which would kill all life.
2) Out of the course of time.
A 4.5 billion aged earth in a 6,000 year old time-line would be out of the course of time as we would understand it. Here again we have eternal time where all things created have to have age already added. The verse above confirm this.
Now notice the word foundation. What is the foundation of the earth? It is the make up of what the earth was created with. Science in order to explain this age thing came up with the geologic column. Which is a look into the foundation of old. So upon digging into this eternity time creation evidence. It is interpreted to go along with time as we understand it. And is the very reason it will always contradict what God's word says.
For when eternal time is denied, how eternity works is misunderstood. I have no problem with how things date, the current dating methods etc... But to accept only one way interpretation is a bias view. One that says: I'm not looking for truth, I'm looking to be right. Because I did not figure out all these things until I took a non-bias view. One where I allowed the dating methods to work, and then look for the word of God to explain why it was created this way. If I had never done this, you would not see here what I have written and I still would be in the dark about how this works.
God actually gives a warning about not understanding, and looking for other explainations:
mt 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not,
then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.Seed in God's word means two things:
1) The seed of a plant.
2) Information or knowledge.
So if we replace the word seed with knowledge, this is how it sounds:
mt 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received knowledge
by the way side.
This is what happens when people decide not to wait on God for knowledge. But want fast explainations instead. Quick knowledge is not always the truth.
