One day in God's time is more like 1000 years to us. So, it may have taken 6000 years to create, and 6000 years to inhabit. The 7th day He rested (Garden of Eden time) and in the 7th day the earth itself will rest, we call that the millenium, and we expect it to happen sometime this century. Jesus created the earth under the direction of God, they act as one, always have. No one is pressuring you to believe, just keep reading.

Btw, the scriptures say "today is the day for men to prepare to meet God" Meaning, the day of our life. When he used the term "day" in creation, it meant however long it took to create. Reason is crutial. We know it couldn't have happened in 24 hours. Evolution fits in with it, but not Darwin's whole theory. That's why the debate between Darwin and Intelligent design, and one that everyone should study. I admire you for wanting to hear both sides. I have too, and I believe in this one. It's important to realize there are two sides, and Darwin's has only ever stated it was a "theory". (I mean the ape thing :-)

> I just read Chapter 2 "Jesus makes the Earth"
> I didn't know it was Jesus who made the Earth. I didn't know that Jesus existed before he was born. I thought it was God who made the universe and the Earth?
> Did Jesus make "just" the Earth, or did he make our universe as well? If he made the stars and stuff, then that means he made our universe?
> How come only Jesus got to make the Earth? Did the other spirits have the power to make the Earth?
> So...heaven existed before the universe was made?
> I have a LOT of trouble believing any of the things mentioned in this chapter. Do all people who believe in God need to believe the things mentioned in this chapter? Can Christians or Mormons or whatever believe in evolution and still go to heaven?
> This Chapter made me feel like there is no way I can be a believer if believing means that I have to believe the Earth was made in 6 days.
