That would make a day shorter - not a year. There would have been more days in the year. A year would have been the same length as it is now - more or less.

but what you fail to understand is that the faster rotation, also helped to propel the earth faster in its orbit.

It was a good theory anyway. Look what these say about it

The answer I believe in part lies in the state of the earth when God first Created it, compared to the sin wrecked world we live in today.

Well, you're half right, I guess.
When "God made man in His image", as in Genesis, obviously the word 'man' included woman.
So, yes. He's also a She!!!

So Noah was well over 500yo when he built his ark then?????. I also find alot of the story lines disturbing and barbaric. Christianity should scrap the old testament and just start with the nativity - altho there are some barbaric bits in that too??!!

I like it!!!
Unfortunately we're stuck with the Old as well as the New!
After all, when Christ was doing His wanderings & quoting scripture, He only had the Old Testament to go on.
So Christians have to accept both books as "gospel" as it were.

Another thought to finish on, (& I see this post already is into its 9th page), The word Hell is almost never mentioned in the Old, but in the New, the one person who mentions it a lot is Christ Himself. In other words, He knew it existed.
For me, that's sufficient warning.
Not that it makes Christian living any the easier.

Ah, but who set it to tilt at 23½ degrees? It's pretty significant.
Surely not a big bang.

I think you are hinting at the amazingness of the hole in the ground to perfectly match the shape of the water that it contains after a storm.

Pretty dodgy I reckon. Half a million miles out or a couple of degrees either way of the tilt & we wouldn't exist.

Why, even Genesis makes more sense, apart from to people like Richard Dawkins.

Never entered my head!
Real Madrid are now playing Bayern Munich, 2nd half, so please excuse me.

Err...there are quite a few other planets in the universe.

If there were only one I could possibly see your point.
