Comment on Dr. Geraty clarifies his “Challenge” to literal 6-day creationism by John D. (LLU SM `63).
My wife attended LSU in the mid 60’s and our youngest daughter graduated in 2005, so we are somewhat acquainted with LSU. Having graduated from Walla Walla University, it was then known that one acquires a spouse there, go to LSU to have fun and go to PUC to get an education.
As I have read the various comments on this issue, Jonathan Taylor’s comments need to be reemphasized. If one truly believes in the evolutionary creation, which day are we still in now? It appears some people will be dead before they pass on from one day to the next! Why would God give the ten commandments where it states that one is to work for six days and then rest on the 7th “evolutionary” day? Possibly some people are born on the seventh evolutionary day, therefore are perfectly content in accepting welfare benefits all of their life! They feel God has told them legitimately to “rest” and if they were to work they would be breaking the fourth commandments.
It appears that some of our presidential leadership, have not taken many scientific courses themselves. Does Lawrance Geraty use the Catholic Bible in interpreting the Sabbath commandment?

God wrote the ten commandments with his own finger. When he wrote “six days shall thou labor and do all thy work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God, in it thou shalt not do any work”. How could each day be represented as thousands of years as if one were born and died after 100 years, he may either be required to work his whole life or if born on the seventh day he would then rest all his life with no work?! This doesn’t make “common sense” to me. The evening and the morning, represent each day in evolutionary day, if you are born at night, you may not even see the light of day!
