@izzythepush,
Ignored with the contempt that it deserves.

@rosborne979,
The several "days" actually means the several "worlds"

plant = leaf
insect = shell
fish = fins
amphibian = slime coat
lizard = scales
bird = feathers
mammal = fur

Via fossils we could find that their was eons of life on the planet before man came to be. Think of like a fish-tank. or terrarium.

............

Several worlds = Several days

...........

Another theory is that we came from another world and selfishly nuked the dinosaurs and pulled a genesis.

Much of the bible seems to be based on various astronomical events and on pre-existing stories from various religions, so I'm wondering if there is something special (or historic) about 7 Days.


Probably some mathematician decided to figure out all the days of the year and then slipped them into seasons.....or whatever came before seasons...maybe it was even more simple.

Problem is that the growing things came before the great lights. Photosynthesis and all that.

Yes, there is literal significance. Seven in Hebrew is shabua, and oath is shaba ( for comparison, sabbath is shabat). The English word oath sounds much the same as the Hebrew word for sign (owt/owth).

“According to the ancients, we live in an eternal oscillating universe that expands outward and contracts back to its beginning in space time. A universe that exists in the two states of seemingly visible matter and invisible energy.”

“Universe after universe is like an interminable succession of wheels forever coming into view, forever rolling onwards, disappearing and reappearing; forever passing from being too non-being, and again from non-being to being. In short, the constant revolving of the wheel of life in one eternal cycle, according to fixed and immutable laws, is perhaps after all, the sum and substance of the philosophy of Buddhism. And this eternal wheel has so to speak, six spokes representing six forms of existence.” ---- Mon. Williams, Buddhism, pp. 229, 122.

The days and nights of Brahma are called Manvantara, or the cycle of manifestation, ‘The Great Day,’ which is a period of universal activity, that is preceded, and also followed by ‘Pralaya,’ a dark period, which to our finite minds would seem as an eternity, or but a moment in time.

‘Manvantara,’ is a creative day as seen in the six days of creation in Genesis, ‘Pralaya,’ is the evening that proceeds the next creative day. The six periods of Creation and the seventh day of rest in which we now exist are referred to in the book of Genesis 2: 4; as the “GENERATIONS OF THE UNIVERSE.”

The English word “Generation,” is translated from the Hebrew “toledoth,” which is used in the Old Testament in every instance as ‘births,’ or ‘descendants,’ such as “These are the generations of Adam,” or “these are the generations of Abraham, and Genesis 2: 4; it is written concerning the six days of creation; “These are the generations of the Universe or the heavens and earth, etc.” And the ‘Great Day’ in which the seven generations of the universe are eternally repeated, is the eternal cosmic period, or the eighth eternal day in which those who attain to perfection, are allowed to enter, where they shall be surrounded by great light and they shall experience eternal peace, while those who do not attain to perfection are cast back into the refining fires of the seven physical cycles of endless rebirths that perpetually revolve within the eighth eternal cosmic cycle.

Enoch the righteous, wrote that God created an ‘EIGHTH’ day also, so that it should be the first after his works, and it is a day eternal with neither hours, days, weeks, months or years, for all time is stuck together in one aeon, etc, etc, and all who enter into the generation of the Light beings, are able to visit all those worlds that still exist in Space-Time, but not in our time.

A series of worlds following one upon the other-- each world rising a step higher than the previous world, so that every later world brings to ripeness the seeds that were imbedded in the former, and itself then prepares the seed for the universe that will follow it.

It took six generations, or six periods of universal activity, for this universe to develop human life forms. The ‘GREAT THOUGHT’ in which the MOST-HIGH intellect has developed, is self-created, and evolves according to its own will.

@glitterbag,
The seven days of the week are associated with the visible, classical planets.

Classical planets are not the same as real planets. In the classical world the Earth is at the centre and everything that goes found it is a planet inclucing the Sun and Moon.

Monday Moon
Tuesday Mars
Wednesday Mercury
Thursday Jupiter
Friday Venus
Saturday Saturn
Sunday Sun.

@izzythepush,
No. They're based on religion. Not the planets.

Monday - Luna
Tuesday - Mars (god)/Tiu
Wednesday - Mercury (god)/Woden (Odin)
Thursday - Jupiter (god)/Thor
Friday - Venus (god)/Freya
Saturday - Saturn (god)
Sunday - Apollo/Jesus (Constantine made a pronouncement that the Day of the sun is the day of the Lord)

Atheists don't like to admit this, but the days are clear artifacts of pagan times.

I want to make new names. Anyone wanna help?

@Theo202,
Because as I mentioned it was the several worlds.

Stardust gathered and formed the planets, sun, and solar system. From that came elements that brought forth life, even if that life was microorganisms. Through those organisms moving or not came many other organisms via evolution forced or not. So forth and so forth. One time the world was nothing but lifeless liquid, but as time moved on lifeforms evolved, adapted to in take sunlight and oxygen or even surviving various elements from volcanic eruptions like sulfur and carbon dioxide. What was days could have been eons, or even what was considered "days" in terms of translation and actual record keeping.

The Earth ( any ) would have to undergo a transformation just to get to our point ( humans ).

Think of it like setting up a fishtank.
1. First you add the substrate and filter.
2. Then the plants, foilage, caves, logs,
3. Then you add crabs, crayfish, shrimp, claims,
4. Then you add the self reproductive fish that will eat the micro-life forms.
5. Then you had the smaller fish
6. Then the bigger fish ( the eaters of the reproductive fish )
7. Finally the biggest fish ( gentle giants )

The planet is basically a terrarium.

Why do we have light in an aquarium? The plants grow from the light and are activated to create oxygen which kills off bacteria, fungus, mold, and anything else that can not survive with those two additions. They are still their but on a microscopic scale.

A series of worlds following one upon the other-- each world rising a step higher than the previous world, so that every later world brings to ripeness the seeds that were imbedded in the former, and itself then prepares the seed for the universe that will follow it.

Enoch, who, at the age of 365 (The number of days in a calendar year) was lifted up and anointed as the heir and successor to the throne of our Father ‘The Lord of Creatures,’ and the Most-High in the creation, and translated from a body of corruptible Matter into a body of brilliant and blinding Light in order that he should never experience death.

From the Book of Enoch the Prophet 108: 11-13; “And now I will summons the spirits of the good who belong to the generation of light, and I will transform those who were born in darkness, who, in the flesh were not recompensed with such honour as their faithfulness deserved. And I will bring forth in shining light those who have loved my holy name, and I will seat each one on the throne of his honour, And they shall be resplendent for times without number.”

But now is not yet the time to discuss the Most-High, ‘The Lord of Spirits,’ the Son of Man, who inherits the throne of his Father, ‘The Lord of Creatures,’ and who is to serve God before the body of Adam=mankind into all eternity.
