Default If God rested on the seventh day...

Then technically wasn't the earth made in six days?

I know it sounds silly but you always hear about the seven days... and Genesis even says he rested on the seventh day of creation... So doesn't that mean he was actually finished on the sixth day?

after all the physical work it takes to make bread it still needs to rise on its own for a while before its done.(i'm sure i'll get ripped for that)

I don't see why you would that is actually a very good analogy. God did create free will. The earth is a living thing in itself so it stands to reason it would function after he created it.

I was thinking the same thing. The world would have needed time to decompress after all that.

Most bible-believers understand that the universe was created in 6 days (144 hours), not 7. That would include Adam and Eve.

I think he means he will get ripped because it may be taken as theistic evoultion. Which is a pile of horse poo. God created everything in 6 days. We are just so slow it takes us awhile to discover it or to put it to use.
