Anyway, how about Zechariah 14:7, where the yom exad, is clearly the 
same yom as in v.6 and v.8 where the "day" embraces summer and winter 
and so is more than 24 hours long. And what about 2 Chronicles 21:19, 
where yamim shenayim is often understood as "two years".
I think a stronger reason for Gen. 1 days being literal days is that it also
says there that each day was an evening and a morning. If you interpret a
day here to be 1000 yrs, could there have been 500 years of night followed
by 500 years of day?

The 1st 3 or 4 days may not have been 24 hrs because God hadn't yet made the
