Hold on, Karl.  Everything I wrote is biblical text based.  I brought nothing 
to the table from outside sources, except what Einstien had said about light 
and darkness and you said he had that wrong, even what Einstien said was 
biblically sound, Isa 45:7.  Just because you're not willing to look or consider 
something doesn't make it untrue or not biblically sound.  A veil has fallen to 
cover your eyes.  Biblically, a day is a thousand years to the Lord, and a 
thousand years is one day.  That means a day = age, eon, or an indefinate period 
of time.

Let me create for you an example:  
One day there was a fire that destroyed a family home and they rebuilt it 
much larger and more expensive then before.

Like in the Genesis scenario, it is obvious to the reader that it took longer 
than one day to rebuild a house.  In the say way, Karl, it is obvious that 
the words 'day one' covers an indefinate period of time.  If you reconstruct 
chronogically from Adam to now you will find about 5750 years, give or take a day 
or two.  Now that leave about five days to cover three hundred and sixty-five 
billion years, give or take a year or two.  Remember, Karl, the God of 
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is also the God of modern science, He is the Master 
Scientist.  Creationist, evolutionist, scientist, preachers and the Karls of this 
world haven't got it all together yet, but they have a place in God's plan.
