I believe that 1 day for God might be a hundred, thousand, or maybe even million years for man. In that sense, I think that even though the bible clearly states that on this day, God made this and that, yada, yada, there is a chance that it wasn't all just formed in a day, and we know that it really did take hundreds, thousands and millions of years for these stuff to take form. And I was thinking, maybe that's why humans were created on the 6th day--because it took that long for humans to evolve. I'm baffled but I'd like to believe in both if it's even possible.

Thank you for such an insightful comment. It just makes me feel bad how some people have to choose between the two when in fact they can be read and understood alongside each other. :) Again, thank you so much HeadlyvonNoggin. :)
but then again, not every piece if writing is to be taken literally. There are a lot of symbolisms in the bible and i just thought maybe that was the way God did it. How would you explain the adaptation in animals then?
Adaptation within species is ok( Genesis 30:37-43), but adaptation across species is impossible. Even within species it is God's design. Random processes can not and will not improve anything. Do not get duped with the idiocy of evolution.

Emily, You are so totally right. Did engineers, architects and a construction firm build the skyscraper, or was it a tornado? How can it be both with all those hammers going in a circle?
How is it impossible? Kindly explain. To me, it'll be like, a multi-millionaire decides to create a skyscraper for his new business and he hires various people--engineers, architects, and a construction firm-- for the skyscraper to be built.
Random processes is behind evolution, by their own admission. Entropy makes this, significant structures, impossible. Your millionaire analogy supports the Creator. The people you mentioned are not random processes, or work randomly.
What if we only think it is random but it isn't?
That is my point, xmags. God created the universe and Christ holds it together. I believe He stores information in the structure of space by stretching it specifically, then the EMF accesses this information to construct proteins. Random? No Way!
