The 24 hour "evening and mornings" ???

Is the reading that the sun was to "rule" correct? If so, this is different
from "measure". Hence, if the sun is to "rule" it is to dictate a day and a
night. If so, the reign began on the fourth day.

I don't, for a minute, believe in an evolutionary origin of man and believe
the Genesis account is accurate, but I feel strongly that it is vain to
"prove" or "disprove" a 24 hour day from the text.

I do think that the latter days were clearly 24 hours, so there is no
compatibility with a kazillion year evolution of man from apes and Genesis.
