Re: Did life really begin naturally billions of years ago, or just a few thousand years ago in the six 24 hour Solar Clock measured "days" of creation.
Sub Thread: Did life really begin naturally billions of years ago, or just a few thousand years ago in the six days of creation.
This would give weight to new and improved theories on abiogenesis.
What is the difference in regard to the threads in this forum since Abiogenesis is hardly substantially different from the Spontaneous Generation stated in Genesis, which when closely read merely states that the Plant Kingdom appeared from the "first sprouts of lkife on Earth," and the Animalingdom followed.
This is essentially the same as science has found in the Two Kingdom biology we use today.

We don't use a "two kingdom biology" today, though. There may be as many as six kingdoms, if we follow T. Cavalier-Smith's argument (A revised six-kingdom system of life, 1997), and anyway modern biology uses the three-domain system as the broadest taxonomic division.
As you ought know, none of the six systems of taxonomy is really satisfactory enough to insist that one or the other must be used because it is perfect.
But all of them are arbitrary and can be useful when the circumstances avail themselves.
But my reasoning is that since Genesis speaks only of Plants and Animals, a modern reader should comprehend what the writers were saying, and they should utilize the Two Kingdom System sincethe imlication is that all life forms were created during the six eras of geological time.
(Which side are you on?
Are you a scientist taking the opposition to my theistic evolution or a programmed loyal denominational church person maintaining that Genesis contradicts science???)
