Carl's comment on 2014-01-15 12:46:40:

This verse states that the evening and the morning was the first day meaning that time was based on night and day all of night was considered evening, and all of day was considered morning. In other words, time was base on one sunset to the next sunset rather than basing a day on 24 hours. When winter advances towards summer every day is longer than the day before, and as summer advances towards winter it is the opposite every day is shorter than the day before. Therefore, morning should not start at midnight, but rather morning should start at sunrise every day, and from that moment time should be adjusted each day to accommodate the next sunrise. By doing this I predict that man will discover that there is exactly 30 days from one full moon to the next full moon, and exactly 12 full moons from season to season. This will account for exactly 360 days rather than 365 days in a year.

I could be wrong but I think the answer to Rev Canon is that when God said there was evening and there was morning, a second day he is counting like we do in the sense that from 1am-12pm that is our morning and then from 1pm-12am is the evening/night. So no it was still 24 hours because even on the first day he said there was evening and there was morning, a first day.

Heaven, as the firmament in Genesis 1:6-8, is interpreted by some as the sky, and it is also understood by some as spiritual Heaven, a spiritual firmament. The waters that Heaven divides that are above and below may also be interpreted as spiritual waters.

 

REV CANON SAMUEL KAHENE's comment on 2011-05-12 07:27:58:

I JUST WANT TO KNOW , ABOUT CHAPTER 1 VERSE 8, IT SAYS , there was evening and there was morning, a second day. BUT THERE IS NO MORNING AND EVENING THE ANOTHER DAY , WHY? BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO BE THE DAY IS TWELVE HOURS, BUT TO DAY WE CALL A DAY WHEN IT IS 24HRS, MY OPINION IS WE BETTER CALL THERE WAS MORNING AND EVENING THE DAY ONE, THEN THERE WAS EVENING AND MORNING THE SECOND DAY ,WE WOULD HAVE COUNTING CLEARLY, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE.
IF YOU HAVE ANY GOOD ANSWER YOU MAY GIVE ME SUCH THAT I CAN BE IN GOOD POSITION.

As usual a nonsensical explanation of illogical facts told for credulous ignorant people.
Read well and see how many stupidity & contradictions there are.
