I firmly believe that God created the universe. I have had difficulty adding logic to the chronology associated with creation.
Science estimates the age of the earth to be 4.5 billion years. Dinosaurs walked the earth about 65 million years ago. And man was formed about 12 to 15 thousand years ago.
I realize that time is meaningless to the Lord, and because of this the Genesis reference to six 24-hour periods of creation should not be taken literally. However, I have difficulty reasoning the significant chronological gap between the beginnings of earth, life on earth, and of man.
