Unlocking the Secrets of Time

creation-clock I listened to an NPR program recently that explored the concept of time, as created life experiences it. For example, time experienced by a hummingbird is different from  time experienced by a turtle. It got me thinking about time as humans understand it, and how that might be different from Time as reported in the Biblical account of Creation.  

 creationIn the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.(Genesis 1:1-5)

Isn’t scientific discovery awesome! Just when we settle, smugly,  into the pigeonholes we’ve created to explain what our limited minds can’t understand, Science comes along and blows the cobwebs away! Here’s a truth for the ages…God’s concept of time and our concept of His concept are not even close to similar!  The scientific evidence is abundantly clear. We have no clue how long God’s First Day was, or is! and anyone who thinks he or she knows, is a fool.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

(Isaiah 55:8-9)
