Hexameron: Greek roots hexa (six) and hemer (Day). Proof of Genesis?

Genesis created Hexameron; Hexameron proves Genesis and the beginning of time, measured by the 24 hour day, the 7 day week and both lunar and solar years.

Scoffers who consider themselves to be "Enlightened" and "Modern" used to love to ridicule the Genesis six day story of creation and have another good collective laugh at what they hold to be the silliness of Scripture. Looking at the sequence of the Genesis days of creation, they scoffed at the story because of their preconception of a sunrise and a sunset being the preordained measurement of a day. What they fail to take into account is the interpretation of the Hebrew word for a day, which is Yom, meaning quite simply a 24 hour period of time, which stands alone and does not depend on the sun or the moon. 

Could it be that the scoffers are not so enlightened and not so modern?

Darwinism - the principle dogma of atheism - is in crash and burn mode, life is proven to be devolving rather than evolving, the most dedicated and fundamentalist atheists refuse to even consider that reality, and they begin withdraw, form cults and morph into close-minded cultists. 

The table has turned. Where once the scoffers challenged the faithful to prove the existence of God, the faithful now challenge the scoffers to prove their theories regarding existence. 

The universe is billions of years old, they pronounce with ontological certitude. Ask them to prove that statement, and then just shut up, watch and listen to the blustering. They won't prove anything at all is billions or even millions or even hundreds of thousands of years old by carbon dating, that's for sure. And there is no other reliable method of dating anything thought to be anywhere near that old

Broad agreement on a scientific conjecture by a lot of scientists is not science, but scientism. A conjecture is a guess. Real science does not seek to find what one or many scientists believe or guess something to be; real science seeks to find what something actually is. Material science is the quest to find material reality, not popular scientific opinion. Or at least that's what science is supposed to be and once was.

What the scoffers among the Globalists, the Anti-Americans, the Anti-Christians, the current Catholic Bergoglio Church hierarchy and others have lost track of is the One Most Important Thing, and that's where they all went off track. 

We have met actual Catholic Darwinists and scoffers, some of them ordained, including some Thomistic Evolutionists. You can't convince them of their own error; they are too close minded and convinced in their ignorance of reality. They are, after all, highly educated in it. 

Consider the word Hexameron. The six days of creation, followed by the day of rest. How is it, and how did it come to be, that the seven day week is and always was commonly held by every race, every ethnicity, every people, every nation and every calendar ever developed in all of human history? 

The twenty four hour day and the seven day week comprise the most commonly held measurement of time in existence. 

I submit for your consideration the proposition that hexameron marks, in Genesis, the very beginning of time. And space. And matter. And life.

Refute it, or scientifically disprove it, if you can


The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us

The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

Hugh Owen says it is yom, and that seems to be the most common usage of Jewish scholars. We talked about it in response to a comment after the Absolute Literalism webpage, where we said:

Chapter 8 of Hugh Owen's book goes into elaborate detail on the meaning of the word Yom in Genesis 1, in the light of Catholic Biblical Scholarship. To summarize a whole lot of well written pages, the word Yom, in the context of Genesis 1, means a 24 hour span of time

We highly recommend I have spoken to you from heaven by Hugh Owen; check it out for yourself. 

Regards,

Vic

Comment: 

Though the majority of Church Fathers took the six days of creation as being six literal days, there was not moral unanimity among them on this question. In addition later Catholic authorities (e.g., Thomas Aquinas; see ST 1:74:2) recognized a diversity of permissible interpretations.

common sense suggests that all the stars in the universe and the vast spaces in between, yet light is arriving from many distant stars millions of light years away points to a very timeless universe indeed.. no need to rush an earth creation in a matter of earth-hours..God has plenty of time on His hands to work and rest..

God stands outside of time. Only we exist in time. Time is a creation.

What counts in the matter of inerrancy of Scripture is what Jesus said, what His chosen Apostles said, what the Popes said and what the Church Councils said. 

Scripture cannot be broken -- Jesus Christ, John 10:35

No prophesy of scripture is made by private interpretation -- Peter, 2 Pet 1:20

Councils of Florence, Trent and Vatican I; Pope Leo XIII, Pope Benedict XV; Pope Pius XII; all confirmed inerrancy of Scripture.

Vatican II, Dei Verbum, latest Catholic Catechism make ambiguous statements regarding inerrancy of Scripture. Ambiguity, however, does not refute, negate or change what has gone before. 

The Church and the Church alone interprets the Scripture that the Church and the Church alone produced. (The Vulgate.)

Material scientists can busily compute how long in light years it might take to travel to various points in the universe, or how long it takes light from any object out there to get here, but all of that says nothing at all about how old the universe or anything in it is.

It all exists in the here and now, which is where we are.

Regards,

Vic

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!

Atheist Genesis:

In the beginning there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing.
And then nothing accidentally exploded and created everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally encountered other bits of everything and formed some new kinds of everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into self-replicating bits of everything.
And then some self-replicating bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into dinosaurs.
