Interesting thread. I heard a professor speak of the 6 days of creation a while back. He believed it was possible to fit billions of years into 6 days. The concept was like this: two people are playing catch,1 only pitching, the other only catching. The one pitching throws a ball every one minute. the other is steadily running backwards. More and more distance grows between pitcher and catcher. Balls are still coming every minute but it's taking longer and longer time to get to the catcher. Give it long enough it will take hours, days,months, years, etc. "Days" to God could be billions of years to us( He is outside of created time anyway)It has to do with the point of perception. Also I belief "boker"(morning)and "erev"(evening) in hebrew can also be translated order and chaos. That would mean periods of relative stillness and turmoil in the 6 days of creation not necessarily different times in a 24 hour day.
