In the book “Autobiography of a Yogi” I read that, according to The Hindu
Scriptures, one Day of Creation is 4,300,560,000 of our years. This is based on the idea that when any heavenly entity rotates once, that is its day. For example, it takes Venus 243 of our days to rotate once. And it takes our universe 4.300,560,000,000 earth years to rotate one time.
Six of these Creation Days add up to 25,803,360,000 of our years, and this seems quite long enough to accommodate Darwin’s theories of evolution together with Creation theories. Science talks about 4, 600,000,000 years as the probable age of the earth these days, as scientists get to know more. And science has also been realizing that we are made of star-dust, and gold, for a few decades now.
The life span of a whole universe, according to the ancient seers, is 314,159,000,000,000
solar years, or “One Age of Brahma”. It seems to me that there is a convergence of science and religion going on, and when the two meet we’ll probably have the truth of the matter, in a way that everyone can entertain.
So, in terms of critical analysis, what does The Bible mean by the word “Day”?
Have a good one.
